Post Which Willy Wonka movie should be on Blu-ray?

Personally, I'd rather have both "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" and "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" on Blu-ray. But that's just me. Anyone else?

Gotta be the Johnny Depp version. The first ones great but, this one will look great on BD.

Ok I voted for both but if I had money for 1 it would be Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

Willy Wonka for the win.

Tim Burton Was Far more True to the original book than the first movie Read the Roald Dahl book

Release both since there are fans of each movie but I voted Willy Wonka. Not really interested in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Tim Burton's vision is to much like a "G" rated version of Michael Jackson's Chocolate Factory.

Gene Wilder was and is Willy Wonka!

I prefer the original, but both deserve a BD release.

The Depp version, stupid unnecessary father issues aside is far more accurate to the book. The Wilder verison was disowned by Dahl. While I'm not thrilled with the way Depp played him at all, Wilder did it just as wrong in another direction

I chose both, because certain ppl like one more than the other and to get more people to choose blu, we need more movies. I think a double pack at the price of just one movie would be great, then people could get both in a 2-BD set.

I would love to read the actual book myself to get a better idea of how the story differs from the movies. But we all know books have not always translated well into film, the same as video games. As far as the movies go, I grew up on the original so I voted for it. I haven't seen the one with Depp and didn't really want to. The movie seemed to 'weird' for my tastes, although I am a Burton and Depp fan. I wonder how it would have been if Manson had played the role.
