Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory
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?
Maybe the best interpretation of Dahl's unique fantasy.
Willy Wonka: There's no earthly way of knowing/Which direction they are going... There's no knowing where they're rowing...
Mr. Salt: [weakly echoing] Rowing...
Willy Wonka: Or which way the river's flowing... Is it raining, is it snowing?/Is a hurricane a-blowing?
Willy Wonka: Not a speck of light is showing/So the danger must be growing... Are the fires of Hell a-glowing?/Is the grisly Reaper mowing?/Yes! The danger must be growing/'Cause the rowers keep on rowing/
Willy Wonka: And they're certainly not showing/Any sign that they are slowing!
[lets out a high-pitched, almost unearthly scream]
One of the best movies ever made, I don't know why I'm not giving this five stars but I'm just not 100% sure…
Oompa Loompa doom-pa-dee-da
My kids and I watched and they liked this by far
Oompa Loompa doom-pa-dee-do
This movie's still great and is one of those few
It's a film that's aged well
after all's said and TOLD
A film that still works for the young
and the OLD
I'm glad that I could share this with my girl and my BOY
They're smiles and laughs --- that tells me it gave them some joy
Oompa Loompa doom-pa-dee-dee
If you are wise, you'll listen to me
You will rewatch this as soon as you can
And I give this a doom-pa, loom-pa

I showed this to my 7th and 8th grade study hall on the final two days of school. They were angry that it wasn't Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I informed them that the two movies were very different, and in my personal opinion the original was far superior to the remake. They disagreed claiming that Johnny Depp was a much better actor than "the weird dude in…
I need a Wonka coat.

One of the goofiest, yet strangely heartfelt movies I've ever seen.
It was a joy to see this in an actual theater. I've always really liked it, but it's even better than I remembered.
I watched this movie three times in a week.
It was magical to see this on the big scree today. I love TCM for making that happen!
Five children win a chance to visit the closely guarded factory of a reclusive confectioner (Gene Wilder). Hadn't seen this classic family film since I was a kid, and as it was showing at the cinema as part of a TCM/Fathom event, I jumped at the chance; it still holds up marvelously, with Roald Dahl's script (based on his on classic children's book) filled with memorable characters and unforgettable dialogue, wonderfully acted by the entire cast, and elaborately produced. A joy!
Well that was a fun theater experience.
Nowadays, films have trouble appealing to both kids and adults, but Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory nails it.
Gene Wilder, one of my favorite actors, gives another great performance, even if there's a little bit too much Leo Bloom in there.
After that little whimsical, yet sinister adventure, I have to get back to watching 13 more Spielberg movies if I want to be done by The BFG.
Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory is an audacious oddity in children's fiction. What promises to be a lighthearted romp through a secretive candy plant ends up playing like a psychedelic slasher for the youth set. Morality is compromised and children are judged, then swiftly punished. One by one, a group of kids is knocked off while a Greek chorus of fantasy dwarves extoll condemnations of their sins. And hosting this ritualized dispatching of young sinners is a gloriously unapologetic madman, the ringmaster to a circus of sugary insanity.
Grim on analysis, Willy Wonka has survived almost fifty years as a family favorite because it is above all else a comforting celebration of fanciful imagination and childish delights. Sure, kids who…
