Tim Burton has given us a gift in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I tried to go in with no preconceived notions. I did not compare it to the book or the 1971 film, Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and I enjoyed a very creative film. First of all, kudos for best sight gag ever, the glass elevator! I thought the first fall was funny, the second hilarious!!! The story moved along nicely and the characters developed quickly. Strong points are the set design, the music and some great tongue in cheek humor .... and believe it or not, a mock-shower scene ... (see last post)!!
This was a fun film for me, and the Oompa Loompas knocked me out!!
