Lets face it, the child is pure white trash. and honestly he didn't deserve that factory. He still broke rules. His family is gonna move in there are the whole place was gonna look like a tornado blew thru it. The oompa loompas are gonna die from how unclean the place is gonna be. when the grandparents die they are are just gonna thru them in the choco-river instead of a decent burial. The place is gonna go to sh*t pretty quick.

While Veruka may have been spoiled she could take the factory on balls to the wall. Sure she would probably throw out the current help and hire cheaper workers. She would start out young but she would be the devil wears gobstopper in the end.
Stop the Replacing of original Studio Opening / Closing logos! These are becoming endangered and should be kept intact. They are part of film history.

Some months ago I wanted to re-watch it, and when it finished, I decided to not buy the collector's edition box, but, the standard edition. After all, I saw that it isn't that great film I thought it was when I was a child. And i'm still thinking if I buy the standard edition or if I use the money to buy other film which I really like and think it's very good.
Actually, I prefer Tim Burton's version, but this one is cool too.

This is a classic IMO. There were many redeeming qualities about the movie and music; very little in the Burton version.

This film is indeed a classic; one of the most wonderful kids' films for adults ever made. Burton's film, however, is the worst remake this side of Stallone's GET CARTER. Johnny Depp's horrendous "interpretation" and Danny Elfman's woefully uninspired score really send it straight into the bin, burying the (very) few good moments within.

Just listen to the awesome yell Wonka (Wilder) does at the end of the Wondrous Boat Ride song. Right after the line, "...and they're certainly not showing, any signs that they are slowing! Aeaeeaeaeaeaeaeaeae!!!"

It's frikkin priceless!! Depp has nnnnnnothing on Wilder

I have to say that I love the elevator scene at the end, it kinda makes me feel emotional, but, I don't know why I don't think of it anymore as a great film.
Maybe I'll have to re-watch it again and again, after all, it was one of my favorite films in my childhood, since the day I saw it on TV for the first time.
I remember my mom said: watch it, I think you're gonna like it, I saw it when I was a child and I liked it, it's cool.

I actually have it but haven't opened it yet :P

Love this movie. I find it kind of funny though that Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is really about Charlie and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is really about Willy Wonka. :P

A year or so ago I found the Beetlejuice / Charlie & the Chocolate Factory / The Corpse Bride triple feature at Wal-Mart for $12.96. I figured for a few bucks I could live with the lesser remake.

I've been re-reading Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator recently. My God, is that book crap. No wonder they never did a follow-up film with it.

I'd been waiting for a price dip on this for a year and finally just after Black Friday (Dec 1st) Amazon ran a sale of some WB digibooks. Was able to get Wonka for $12.96 and Doctor Zhivago for $13.99.

At the age of 33 I still enjoy the hell out of this version. When you really break it down, simply put, Gene Wilder is awesome in just about everything.

No, while Im not a huge fan of Burton's reimagining of it, his POTA remake was about the worst remake ever made

The great thing about this film is that its been a favorite of mine since I was a child, though for different reasons such as wanting to tour the factory and load up on sweets... Now I laugh at the over the top absurdness of the golden ticket mania more than anything. And what a douche Grandpa Joe is, invalid for years in bed with the other grandparents, smelling up the joint... but the second Charlie wins the ticket he's dancing around like he's on broadway screaming I'VE got a golden ticket... that's Charlie's damn ticket you old fart.

Haha I've read a lot of retrospective observations about Grandpa Joe over the last few years here on the Internet. Some of them are so funny that I was in stitches reading them.

Hell theres even a whole website dedicated to Grandpa Joe! Makes for some hilarious reading - http://saynotograndpajoe.com/

Another place to keep an eye on for these digibooks is Walmart. I picked up Willy Wonka, Doctor Zhivago and A Star is Born (with Judy Garland) just after Black Friday for $12.96 each. That would be my guess why Amazon dropped their price ... to match Walmart.
So many blurays, so little time.
