Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), Tim Burton, B+

Jordan | Jordan Hoffman's Movie Journal | Sunday, July 24th, 2005

Somehow word had gotten to me that this movie was no good. Whoever says this has a serious case of “not getting the joke.” I actually think this is a better film that the first version — even if the original Veruca Salt is one of the greatest performances in film history. I think Depp as Wonka is a perfect match and all the other non-Veruca Salt children were terrific. (The Veruca on display here is fine, but, you know. . .what could compare to the original?) The original Chocolate Factory movie, for me, was always a disappointment because it was the first time I had ever experienced seeing a movie after reading a book. I’ve now grown to recognize that the book is always better (yes, yes, there is a short list that refutes this rule) but when I was eleven I assumed the movie would be just as I pictured it. Anyway, Ann & giggled our way through this and ate fudge. My favorite part was seeing Mike Teevee’s dad in those silly sunglasses.

  1. THANK GOD SOMEONE SAID IT!!!!! I THOUGHT THIS MOVIE WAS FUN TOO….SO MANY PEOPLE ARE SO ENAMOURED WITH THE FIRST MOVIE…I MEAN I LIKE IT TOO…BUT THE REASON I LIKE IT IS BECAUSE IT IS BAD!!!!! IT’S THE CAMPIEST THING YOU’VE EVER SEEN..I MEAN PAUL LIND WOULD HAVE SAID “DAMN!!!THAT WAS CAMPY!!!”
    ..I THINK THATS WHAT PEOPLE FORGET…THEY ENJOY THE BADNESS OF IT…PLUS PEOPLE REMEMBER NOSTALGIC THINGS IN A TAINTED WAY….IF IT’S FROM YOUR CHILDHOOD IT MUST HAVBE BEEN GOOD…MOVIES…T.V…..BUT REVISIT THOSE THINGS AND YOU’LL SEE HOW AWFUL THEY WERE…..MUCH TO OUR COLLECTIVE CHAGRIN….
    I MUST AGREE WITH YOU ON THE VERUCA SALT COMMENT THOUGH….SHE WAS DEFINATELY THE STAND-OUT IN THE FIRST MOVIE…I ALSO WAS A FAN OF THE SCARY BOAT “TRIP”
