Chas 'n' Choc Factory

I loved it, Julie van Andrews thought it was rubbish; he hated the childhood flashbacks. He's such a purest when it comes to remakes.

I thought that Johnny Depp was superb in the role of Willy Wonka - just the right mix of oddball and camp!

Visually, absolutely stunning, as with most of Tim Burton's stuff. The oompa loompa repeated characters were hilarious. Favourite oompa loompa song on the 'sad loss' of the fat German kid: Augustus Gloop, Augustus Gloop, a great big greedy nincompoop / Augustus Gloop, so big and vile so greedy and so infantile ...

Do you watch The Mighty Boosh? I thought the oompa loompa songs were just great!

Loved the film.
