No disrespect to Johnny Deep or Tim Burton, why would they sign on to ruin the greatest movie of all time (imho). This newer version of the classic Willy Wonka's Chocalote Factory looks so dark and demented. I guess that's Burton twist to it. The original one was a lighthearted, fun, fantasy world teaching you honesty is the right policy. Even, Gene Wilder's upset about this remake.

y? because american cinema is SHIT and they like taking english ideas and americanising them

war of the worlds, an american saving the world! out this month too..if they made films on reality, maybe theyd show the americans as the enemy

all the ww2 movies are funny because they make out they win the war single handedly

As an American I cosign your exact sentiments. I have the Killer on DVD, and the way they rip off that movie is crazy.

You're right man, well said.

I do think that the American movie industry rips alot of good movies. Like for instance the asia mania movies. The ring,The Grudge,Dark Water etc.....good movies,ofcourse, but they can't type the Asian cinema.
Now America is gonna re-make the Belgion blockbuster "De Zaak Alzheimer" aswell....What, did they run out of ideas or sumthin'? I mean c'mon, be original, get y'r own shit.
What's next? A re-make of "Seven Samuraļ"???????????????????

And I'm totaly agree with you about "Charlie and the Chocolate factory". But a Burton/Depp collabo is very exciting. "Edward..." and "Ed Wood" are fucking classics. "Sleepy Hollow" an ok movie.
But I'm with you dns ;)

I know Burton/Deep is a great combo. But you don't remake Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory. Classics should be left alone. If you're going to remake a movie, remake the shitty ones.

I'm glad this remake went ahead. Depp and Burton can do no wrong. The original was great sure. This remake wont damage that at all.

usually i would say the same not to remake classic films. However Roald Dahl, who wrote the book apprantly hated the orignal film! I read it in some magazine

On that note if tim burton can make it nearer what the author envisioned i say good luck!

hahaha same here yo
i used to dream bout the gummie walls an shit yo
and the giant candy canes, lol

but i thought this was the continuation to the original when i first heard of it (which was well over 2-3 years ago) since its named Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (since Charlie inherits the factory at the end of the original film)
guess i was wrong....wouldve been an interesting film though

peace

i like when remakes are made, because they give me a new insight on the flick, and ups my appreciation. when watching a shitty remake, i cant help but think "wow, im so happy this isnt the original. matter of fact, ima watch the original right now!"

also, i enjoy when foreign films are remade because i get so irritated when im reading subtitles. the remakes also let me understand the plot, so i know if i would like to see the original. for example, i really wanna see the japanese versions of the ring and the grudge...

by the way, the american remake of the grudge is such shit. other than honey, i dont think ive seen a worse movie.
