Eccentric candy man Willy Wonka prompts a worldwide frenzy when he announces that golden tickets hidden inside five of his delicious candy bars will admit their lucky holders into his top-secret confectionary. But does Wonka have an agenda hidden amid a world of Oompa Loompas and chocolate rivers?
CW: Racism/imperialism, food, sizeism/ableism?
"What must that factory smell like?" I asked my roommate as we watched the opening credits. Chocolate powder like flowing clouds, folding sheets of chocolate rippling, little kisses coming from a machine, the whole sequence is more evocative to me than the most erotic moment in the most erotic film. It demands bodily reaction. It seeps from the television screen and charges my blood with sweetness. It's not the most delicious moment in the film, though.
I knew, going in, that this film would not meet my standards. I knew that the Oompa Loompas are offensive, exploitation of little people for the sake of exoticism and a horrifying pro-slavery metaphor that is not at all masked…
Goddamnit 2016! What did this beautiful Saint ever do to you? Why would you pluck such a tender and loving human from our midst like Gene? All he ever did was bring joy and happiness to millions of people for so long. We've lost one of the most charming and loving actors today, I think I died a little inside.
Someone form a circle around Gene Hackman before anything else happens.
I'm going to be blunt, what's a movie that REALLY fucked with your head when you were a REALLY little kid? Not necessarily scared you, or even gave you nightmares, just one that ALWAYS confused you.
For 14 years, that movie for me has always been "Will Wonka & the Chocolate Factory". I know it seems weird to say, but it's always been such an oddity within the back of my mind yet not for the reasons you may think.
It was probably my first real "WTF?" movie because I never could say if I liked it or not. Then again, I've only seen it once when I was four years old. I remember renting it from a local video store,…
Don't forget what happened to the man who suddenly got everything he always wanted. He lived happily ever after.
I wanted to write a full review of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory much sooner, but every place in the state was sold out of bluray copies, so I had to wait a little for a mail order to come in. The truth is, Gene Wilder was practically a part of my life growing up. Everyone who watches films has most likely seen at least one of the 22 feature length films he's been in, and almost all of them are considered great classics. As much as I adore The Producers, Wilder's greatest role will always be Willy Wonka. The…
Maybe the best interpretation of Dahl's unique fantasy.
Saw this in theaters for the first time tonight. My favorite film of all-time. Gene Wilder is such an electric, energetic, enthralling presence. Mel Stuart did an amazing job directing this, but Wilder's performance makes this film perfect for me. What a magical film.
Dis that good shit. But damn does this movie drag before gene wilder comes on though. He's too good in this. Fuck Charlie. He's a pussy. But I'm into the songs and wonka is wise beyond his years. Better than the book. I think it has to do with gene wilder. His version of wonka captures the mix of chaos and purpose so well.
Divertido e encantador. Não importa quantos anos passem, esse filme jamais vai perder a magia. Simples como deveria ser (ainda mais se comparado à grandiosidade da fábrica do remake de 2005), mas ainda assim deixa sua marca.
Eu amo esse Willy Wonka do Gene Wilder de uma forma, que nem consigo descrever. Doce, bondoso, caridoso. Despreza os defeitos irritantes das crianças, mas não as julga e muito menos as destrata. Wilder compõe o personagem de forma delicada e coerente, uma performance imbatível, de fato. Já Peter Ostrum consegue emocionar em uma cena ou outra como Charlie, o problema é que o ator parece se esforçar pra passar uma imagem de pobre coitado desnecessária do personagem. A virtude do Charlie Buckett…
What a strange, strange movie. But it made me in a very good mood. The first 40 minutes we follow who five children will win a golden ticket to a candy factory, the same time it is showed how stupid we people are. That chemistry teacher was funny from the side characters. But I had all this time wondered when will Willy Wonka (Gene Wilder) appear. Just when I was beginning to be frustrated, then the gates opened to a factory. The first part of this movie was quite realistic, so it felt a very big change to get into an insane, surrealistic and colourful factory where there were small, orange oompa loompa men singing songs about morality things and…
good, but now i want a wonka bar and apparently they dont make those anymore so what's the point.
One of the best ever made and still holds up in 2016.
A nostalgia vehicle that holds merit above that mere virtue. Filled with memorable songs, irreverent production design and host to a truly iconic performance from Gene Wilder, WW&TCF deftly weaves childhood wonder, moral instruction and satire to create something special, capable of reaching the innocent and the cynical alike.
Ah, cómo se extraña la presencia de Gene Wilder en la pantalla.
Y se lleva de calle al WW de Burton.
