Charlie and the Chocolate Factory DVD Review

The classic Roald Dahl book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory has made its way back onto the big screen and this time Johnny Depp is taking on the role of Willy Wonka. Will this flick satisfy your sweet tooth or is it more sour than a Shock Tart? Find out with our review!

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - Modern Remake

After firing everyone from his factory fifteen years ago, Willy Wonka is finally ready to open the doors to the public once again. He conducts a contest by hiding five golden tickets in random Wonka chocolate bars around the world. Whoever find the tickets will be invited to the factory for a one-on-one tour with Wonka himself and a lifetime supply of chocolate! The five lucky children who win are champion gum-chewer Violet Beauregarde, rich daddy's girl Veruca Salt, technology nerd Mike Teavee, choco-holic Augustus Gloop and little Charlie Bucket. Tim Burton's flick is quite a bit different from the '70s version of the movie, but it's supposed to follow the plot of Roald Dahl's book a bit more closely.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - Fantastical Flavor

Johnny Depp takes on one of his most ambitious roles yet as Willy Wonka in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. If you remember the original flick with Gene Wilder playing Wonka, you know that the reclusive candy maker is a bit odd. Johnny takes Willy Wonka's odd behavior one step further, creating a truly eccentric character that definitely steals the show. Violet Beauregarde and her pushy mother are great in their matching blue track suits and bleach blonde hair and it's impossible not to love Charlie Bucket and his family. The other kids aren't as memorable but still give really great performances.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - Beyond Your Wildest Imagination

Everything about Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is awesome. Each set has its own unique look - from inside the factory to Charlie Bucket's house, it all has that Tim Burton flair! The chocolate waterfall in the flick was created from scratch and is not the work of a handy special effects team. In fact, a lot of the Charlie set was made by hand and not computer. Special effects were of course used in the flick, especially when filming the Oompa Loompas. All the pint-sized factory workers were played by just one man and then duplicated by computer.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - DVD Features

One of the most eagerly-anticipated DVDs of the 2005 holiday season hits video stores near you on November 8, 2005! This DVD explores how Tim Burton created the fabulous Oompa-Loompas - played by just one actor! Also, challenge the oompas to a dance-off with the Oompa-Loompa Dance Machine Challenge.

Charlie and the Chocoalte Factory - Bottom Line

If you see one movie this summer it should definitely be Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Whether you check it out with your closest pals or the fam, everyone will love this flick. It may not be the best movie to take really small kids too though. While Johnny Depp pulls off an amazing performance, his character can be a bit creepy at times.

I thought it'd be cool for all the anime fans if there was a forum where we could find friends who like the anime we do :) Personally I really need some more friends who like what I do. Maybe you'll find someone who shares your love for something really obscure! Including manga too. To start off here are some favorites of mine: (just because one isn't here doesn't mean I might not like it too so everyone please share yours!) Black Butler D. Gray-Man No.6 Yu-Gi-Oh Seraph of the End Puella Magi Madoka Magica Horimiya Kekkai Sensen Free! Kyoukai no Kanata Tamako Market (especially its movie!!) My Little Monster Mekakucity Actors (and that whole music project that it's based on) Toradora! haven't finished reading/watching but like: (if you like it I'll make it a priority :)) Akagami no Shirayuki-hime Pandora Hearts Kyou Kara Maou Kuroko no Basket Noragami Kiznaiver  Bungou Stray Dogs The World Is Still Beautiful Ajin Haikyuu!! Aldnoah.Zero Princess Tutu That's all I could think of for now! What are yours? Note: No bashing other people's faves! Have debates/flame wars elsewhere. (Especially about Sword Art Online.
