Charlie spoilers...

So, yesterday...hubster and I went to the movies to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We walked out of there wishing we had our 2 hours and our 12 bucks back. Seriously, it was THAT bad. It totally ticks me off how much they messed up the remake. I know it's supposed to be more like the book - but the movie was some good stuff and they totally blew it.
First of all, Depp was downright creepy. Now, I'm sure he was supposed to play it a certain way...and he DID do a good job, acting-wise. But the person who decided that he should play it that way was off his rocker. He was like Michael Jackson creepy...with the wierd voice and the wierd face...and the RUBBER GLOVES. EW
Secondly, the oompa-loompas. WHAT THE HECK WERE THEY ALL ABOUT? They were even creepier than Wonka...and the music sucked donkeys.
They left a TON of things out...like slugworth, hello? wasn't he like a major part of the movie, and especially the end? and what about the burping scene with charlie and grandpa joe?
They also switched people around, and changed the story line of the previous movie so much that it really irritated me....

the first Willy Wonka was a feel-good movie...

but the remake was depressing and wierd and a waste of my money.

They didn't even play the oompa-loompa SONG...

I figured it would be weird-o freakin thing anyway, cuz Tim Burton was doing it. Also, they were going on and on about it on E! Channel about how it was so much like the book and how they tried to honor the book and all and so I was figuring that it would be closer to the book than the original movie. But, have any of us read the book, hell no, we wanted to SEE the chocolate, not dream about it....we all wanted to roll around in the damn stuff until it was coming out of our ears! Ok, back to reality now....yes, Depp does look a bit animated and surreal....i'll have to wait and see it for myself...and then i'll come back on YOUR blog and tell ya all about it :)
