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.
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…
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.

The greatest horror film ever made.
This 1971 musical fantasy is directed by Mel Stuart, adapted from the 1964 children’s novel ‘Charlie And The Chocolate Factory’ by Roald Dahl, and stars Gene Wilder, Peter Ostrum, Jack Albertson, Julie Dawn Cole, Denise Nickerson, Paris Themmen and Michael Bollner.
The most famous chocolatier in the world, Willy Wonka (Wilder), hides away in his factory in Europe producing chocolates and sweets that are shipped around the globe. Poor local boy Charlie Bucket (Ostrum) lives a very secluded life with his family all sharing one house, with little money and luxuries, and even uses his meagre paperboy pay to buy bread.
When Wonka announces to the world that 5 special Golden Tickets are hidden in confectionary that will allow children…
How delightfully better than I remember it. Catchy songs, a moving beginning, and some real surreal turns. Part charming, part terrifying. Great stuff.
The first film to genuinely terrify me. I can still remember the very moment I asked my parents if we could stop watching. I was almost sick with worry when Violet Beauregarde turned into a blueberry.
Still as wonderful and bizzare as I remember from my childhood.
Gene Wilder, one of the greatest actors to ever draw breath, in one of his finest roles. I cannot rate this classic film high enough.
The failure in the special effects in some scenes just only add up to the charm of this movie. It is the definitive adaptation of the book though it changed a few minor details.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
Many favorites, as well as a small handful of films that I don't care for... in no particular order (1960-2014).
