Charlie and the Choclate Factory

I loved the original "Willy Wonka and the Choclate Factory" movie when i was a kid, so i was pretty annoyed when i heard that they were planning a remake. However, when i found out that Johnny Depp was going to play Wonka and that Tim Burton was going to be the director, all my fears of it being a thud decipitated: I know that Tim Burton is one of the few with the imagination and vision to do a remake right, and him and Johnny Depp usually make excellent oddball imaginative movies (Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow anyone?) together. Now, watching the trailer of the movie, which got renamed to"Charlie and the choclate factory" after the title of the original play that inspired the first movie, i am faith rewarded and feeling giddy like a 6 year old at an amusement park: The movie looks AWESOME, and i can't wait to see it. They even got the Oompa Loompahs looking cool. I am soo excited. I can't wait. Hehehe Ooompa Loompa, Ooompa Lumpa, Ooompa Lu... ohh, you are still here, ehhh, sorry! Ok, will revert back to adulthood any minute now!

And just why must we "revert" to something yucky like adulthood? (I never grew up anyway!) It's soooooo much more fun to just stay a kid.

I'm looking forward to seeing the remake too!!

It was originally a book, by Roald Dahl; the first movie really did not do it justice.

At. All.

I'm hoping that this remake will get it right. With special effects being what they are, I expect a Great Glass Elevator movie to follow it, too!

I might add Highlander that I have been loyal to the independent movie theaters for movies and plays here in the US as I became tired of the hollywood glamor.

Monsoon wedding (Parvin Dabas) and the whole cast is as good actors as all the hollywood actors. I actually can relate to them more because they look like real people.
