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.
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…
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.
A world of pure imagination and also things that can possibly harm your children
Fun musical, Wilder played the psycho extremely well.
I still love this movie, but never realized how closely it follows the line of a horror film.
Lo bonito de las películas viejas es que se puede apreciar el esfuerzo de la producción artística, que se daban la tarea de armar hasta el detalle más pequeño de todos los sets, sin tanto chroma key ni CGI.
Incluso las coreografías de los oompa loompas se disfrutan más al saber que todas son personas reales tratando de hacer los mismos movimientos en los mismos intervalos de tiempo, y no un solo actor repetido miles de veces con efectos visuales, es decir, dónde está lo entretenido de eso.
Muy buen guión, e indudablemente Gene Wilder es el auténtico Wonka, pero no puedo evitar quedarme con el Charlie de Freddie Highmore, y también con el final de Burton, el de esta lo sentí muy forzado.
"If the good Lord had intended us to walk, he wouldn't have invented roller skates".
You can watch this film again at any age and appreciate the magic within.
A true classic in every sense of the word. Gene Wilder is perfectly cast as Willy Wonka and Peter Ostrum as Charlie Bucket. The songs are memorable and the characters are charming. It does have a sometimes dark and scary edge to it (particualrly the boat ride), but that's all part of the experience though. The German locations are wonderful and the sets are awe inspiring as are the costumes. One for everyone to see and enjoy.
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.
