Satisfying Treat in a Lovely, Shiny Wrapper
First off, I would really like to emphasize that this movie is *not* a remake of the 1970’s film. That’s like saying Peter Jackson remade Ralph Bakshi’s 1970’s version of LOTR. It’s instead a new, darker, and more cynical look at Roald Dahl’s novel. Dahl’s work is infamous for being darker than your average kiddy fare, so in that sense, Burton *was* being faithful to the source material.
Beyond that, I honestly don’t care how faithfully Burton recreated the original book because what I saw on the screen was captivating, satisfying, and definitely enjoyable. The opening sequence, complemented perfectly by Elfman’s quirky soundtrack, had me eager for the rest of the film.
The acting was great, including Depp’s quirky and original take on Wonka and Highmore’s heartbreakingly pure Charlie. I loved the overall look of the film, including the beautifully bright and colorful, yet still sterile, semi-dark, and slightly off-kilter, factory.
One major change that Burton made, which seems to be a point of contention for some, is the inclusion of a back story for Wonka which brings in Christopher Lee in a delightful cameo. While the flashbacks themselves could run a little long and make the action of the movie stutter a bit, I liked the overall story and how it influenced the eventual ending, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
The only complaint I really have is the lack of dialogue on the part of the children while they’re in the factory. There were a few nice bits of memorable banter, but I left wishing they had had more screen time. This is especially true for Veruca, who was nowhere near whiny or demanding enough for my taste.
Overall, I enjoyed the movie, but wished there had been a little more to it. Still, I understand that it’s difficult to pack so very much into a short span of time. While it may not be the richest treat, “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” is a solid and delicious, if a bit small, piece of dark chocolate in a shiny and eye-catching wrapper.
This film is just wrong and horrible
First of its important to say that I am a Roald Dahl fan, and indeed a fan of the original 1971 film Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory. What that film and the work of Roald Dahl have in common is charm, warmth, eccentricity etc. This Tim Burton film does not share in any of it. Having sat and forced myself to watch the entire film hoping something good would happen I was left feeling nothing but empty. I enjoyed most of Tim Burton’s work and was rather excited about this film when it was announced, the trailers never gave away too much and I kept on hoping right up until the credits rolled. So whats so bad about it then? My first massive problem with the film is the reactions from the children through the film. Were they sedated during filming? Watch the scene where they tear down the chocolate river in the boiled sweet boat, does one of them even scream in delight? are they not amazed they are on a boat made from candy on a river of flowing chocolate? Most of the time they stand there looking like they would rather be somewhere else, how are we supposed to believe in the wonder of this amazing factory if the kids there aren’t even impressed (too much blue screen work perhaps, means the poor actors had nothing to be amazed at)
my second not quite as massive problem with the film is Burton’s muse Johnny Depp. Perhaps their relationship is getting stale but Depp’s performance as Willy Wonka was nothing but irritating; less eccentric, more pathetic. The creepy grey skin, luminous teeth, puppy dog eyes and hushed voice all add up to a character that I was bored of in the first 5 minutes after seeing him. The ridiculous back story of his childhood was totally superfluous and added nothing to the film, it’s like Burton really wasn’t trying ‘why does wonka love candy….? hmmmm maybe his father was a wicked dentist who wouldn’t let him eat it… I could get christopher lee to play him! get on to casting!’ Wonka was supposed to be a man with years and years of experience behind him, a weathered eccentric not an excitable/sedated puppy
point number 3 THE MUSIC, perhaps the worst score to a film I have ever heard, Danny elfman, shame on you. OK so they wanted to bring the songs up to date but jeez the music is just bad, the incidental music is bad also, its all bad.
#4 the Oompa Loompa’s. this really made me sad, really sad, so in the revised book they are like miniature cavemen, in the 1971 film they are crazy psychedelic dwarfs, in this film they are… one man, one dwarf, Burton employed him in ‘Big Fish’ he did OK there but he is so wrong for the part of an oompa loompa and why does he have to play all of them? another gimmick that I suspect Burton really didn’t waste any time over coming up with, his expressionless face might have worked as a sad clown but the cheeky Oompa Loompas? I think not there were a few god points, the authenticity (minus the stupid flashbacks) I loved seeing the candy boat in all its glory, the fudge mountain , an actual glass elevator rather than the weird gold thing in the 1971 film but who really cares about all these things when not one person in the film seemed to be impressed by it, did the crew record dry run rehearsals by accident? ( by the way the original elevator of the book didn’t have rockets on the side it used sky hooks and was powered by sugar but kids would just laugh at that right?) It was nice to see charlie’s dad regardless of the fact he is of no importance to the film. The sets were OK but lacked any real wow factor.
basically if you took burtons script chucked out all the nonsense hired a new director kept the sets and gave them a bit more wow and hired a new sound guy and told everyone to smile and have a laugh it wouldn’t be that bad, but that didn’t happen, mores the pity. OK so one day, say 30 years from now I will make it again its the only way I can resolve my issues with this disaster.
in short if you are a roald dahl fan and like the 1971 film DO NOT WATCH THIS, honestly I regret ever seeing it
