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.
I need a Wonka coat.
Even when poorly projected on the side of an old abandoned mattress factory, in a sickeningly hipster area, Willy Wonka is an amazing film to behold. Gene Wilder gives one of the greatest performances ever as the title character, and I pretty much am smiling from the time he shows up in the film till the very end.
Wonderful film. Strange but fascinating, fun, and inventive for it's time. It's still pretty unique today. Has something for the kids and adults to like. Gene Wider slips into probably his most iconic role and gives a fantastic and eccentric performance. I can't imagine anyone else playing him. As far as I'm concerned, the piss-poor Burton remake from 2005 does'nt exist. This is the only Chocolate Factory I want to visit time and time again. This is the film you remember loving as a kid; the kind of love that resonates into adulthood.
I grew up watching this film, I can quote it and I know the words to every single song, but I swear, it has never been funnier than when I watched it a couple of days ago. Maybe I was just in a silly mood, but I found myself giggling uncontrollably for half the film.
It's so nice after so many watches, that I had a new experience with Willy Wonka and his antics. I think that's one of the great things about a film like this, they NEVER get old, they are absolutely timeless and an absolute treat to watch. I can't wait to show it to my future children one day!
P.S We've decided to have a Wonka themed party for Halloween, I'll be sure to tweet some pics!
A childhood favorite that still holds a special place in my heart, even when I watch it with a hilarious Rifftrax commentary.
there's this hostile air in this movie that draws you into it. Some dark force that beacons you.
I can watch this movie a million times and never be sick of it. Gene Wilder can do no wrong.
I'll have nightmare forever because of the boat scene. Damn it.
I am a big fan of Roald Dahl's source work Charlie And The Chocolate Factory. I have watched Tim Burton's adaptation as a kid but never got round to watch the first one ever made, and figured it was time for a change.
Everyone knows the story of Willy Wonka's magic chocolate factory where ''no one ever comes in and no one ever comes out''. When a contest is open for 5 lucky children to visit the factory by finding one of the hidden Golden Tickets in Wonka's chocolates, the world gets moved by trying to find them. Charlie is one of the lucky ones!
The insides of the factory are pure fantasy. The film is interesting and the beggining is really nice. But after entering the factory, it sort of dries of. Still an interesting watch.
Willy Wonka is an absolute sociopath
Gene Wilder pulls hair out of Mike Teavee's head. Hilarious.
When I was a kid my aunt kept trying to get me to rent this movie and I never would because I told her I didn't like chocolate. It turns out I do like chocolate but just thought I didn't because I had snuck into the cabinet and eaten some bakers chocolate which has no sugar. Once she finally convinced me to watch the movie I fell in love with it. It has its own charm, great songs and is visually stunning even if the special effects are very dated. This is a timeless classic that I am excited to watch with my children one day.
