charlie and the chocolate factory

Brian, Jacob, and I went to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory last night. This was, of course, a remake of the classic, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The movie was pretty cool. It was definitely weird like the original, but in a different way. There were quite a few differences in the plot, as well. I was curious to read the story that inspired the movie after watching the original, now I definitely am going to buy the book. I’ve been on the Johnny Depp bandwagon as of late. As always, he was excellent. His Willy Wonka character reminded me of Michael Jackson, though it supposedly wasn’t based off of him (but, he was child-like, wore gloves, had a weird haircut, wore weird clothes, and liked to have little kids over to the factory. hmmm.) Tim Burton is a hell of a director, too. His movies are always fantastic and so imaginative. All in all, a good flick if you ask me.
