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 loved this book growing up and it really is one of the more perfect films from my childhood...and it was made 8 years before I was born!!!
The kids are all fantastic and the ways they got them all were pretty fantastic. The music is great. The Oompa Loompa song is a classic. Discovering all this candy is such an adventure.
But the real star here is Wilder. He is so good. At times he can be the warmest person on screen, other a psycho(the boat scene) and in one scene he's a total a-hole! He was perfection in this role.
I also think they really got the feel of how it used to be with candy stores and…
Gene Wilder ist wirklich ein erstaunlicher Darsteller. Sein Willy Wonka ist zynisch und verspielt. Schon bei seinem ersten Auftritt, dem großen Moment vor der Fabrik, wirkt er schwach und verletzlich. Doch kurz bevor sich dieser Eindruck zementieren kann ist da ein jäher Stoß von Athletik. Eine energische Vorwärtsrolle, die demonstrieren soll, wie viel Kraft und in Wonka steckt. Doch im Kern handelt es sich um eine gebrochene Figur, die eine Fassade aufbaut, er ist mehr als einsam. Seine streben nach Perfektion, die ewige Kindheit hat ihn nicht glücklich gemacht. In seinem Büro ist jeder Gegenstand nur halb vorhanden. Die Bilder des Films sind so sprechend, so expressiv, die Figuren so grob und doch so tiefgehend gezeichnet, dass es eine wahre Freude ist. Roald Dahls feinsinniger, schwarzer Humor laut immer nur ein kleines Stück unter der süßigkeitenbunten Oberfläche verborgen.
One of the most charming, entertaining, funny, scary, and heart warming movies I have ever seen. This movie has such fantastic characters, like Gene Wilder and Jack Albertson. This is a very moving and great film. The music can be a bit cheesy and some of it does not hold up very well. But I still think this is one of the best films of all time.
Classic fantasy film based on Roald Dahl's book, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is a standout film with some truly engaging performances, amusing musical numbers and impressive visuals. Gene Wilder is great in the lead role, and the film has the perfect balance of dialogue and musical numbers to make it a truly engaging experience. This is an eccentric fantasy film, one that should be seen by anyone that enjoys a bizarre, story. For fans of the book, they should check this out, and with that being said, I think that Gene Wilder was the perfect choice to play Willy Wonka, and he delivers one of his strongest performances of his career. This is a well crafted picture with…
first movie i ever remember watching
"If you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it. Anything you want to, do it; want to change the world... there's nothing to it."
Gene Wilder is much sassier and wittier than I recall.
Still love the cameo from the Goodies' Tim Brooke-Taylor.
It's been a long time since I watched this and it's just as wonderful as I remember. I love this movie. So magical and a timeless classic that I can enjoy just as much as an adult as when I was a little kid. Fantastic soundtrack / music and overall story. Just marvelous.
Every child deserves and needs to see this film. Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory has stuck with me ever since I first saw it on that one fateful Easter morning so many years ago.
"If you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it. Anything thing you want to do it, want to change the world there's nothing to it."
It's lines like those that really stick with you. Messages that every individual should live by and that most children do live by, but unfortunately forget as they grow up. Everyone can really learn something from this film.
Honesty, never letting go of your imagination and living out your dreams.
It beats falling down a garbage chute and getting an Oompa Loompa song.
I was probably one of the few living people that had never seen this movie as a child and it gets worst because i was not even familiar with the story. But i had heard of Willy Wonka when i was a child and i certainly knew the movie's reputation, considered a family classic and with that in mind i went into Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory open to find magic.
