    It's creepy. Unassisted and I were talking about it and we think that Johnny Depp looks a lot like Isabella Rossellini in the trailer.

    Depp reminded me a little of Micheal Jackson. And Jackson and kids don't mix.

    RBA, you zeroed in on Roger Ebert's main objection to the film, but you called it 6 months ago.

    Ebert refers to Depp's characterization of Willy Wonka as a combination of MJ and Carol Burnett.

    I didn't like it either, but my kids did. I guess that means we're not in the target demographic, pedro.

    Knowing it's Burton and Johnny Depp... I really wanted to enjoy the trailer but I just couldnt.

    Felt just too strange and that music was irritating as hell.

    My thoughts exactly.

    I think it is is ridiculous to remake any movie. Good to see that the Hollywood types cannot write any new movies. Or is it just too easy to rip off the public with a remake of a movie? The Longest Yard and this. UGH! The only good remake I ever saw was Cape Fear.... and that was only b/c I had never seen the original.

    Depp looks like a freak in this movie. My kid wouldn't visit his factory if he was the only candy-maker on earth! He looks like a crossbreed between Michael Jackson, Mick Jagger and MaCauley Caulkin... and that is not a good thing.

    There is no substitute for the original. And I'll go on the record with that statement without even seeing the remake. Both of my thumbs are down for this remake. :thumbdown :thumbdown
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    It was a bit weird to me as well. The music was somewhat reminiscent of the "Silver Shamrock" jingle from "Halloween 3: Season of the Witch." I was torn between whether I was watching a trailer for some cheesy horror film or a U2 video where someone dubbed it over as a joke.

    Does this one have the support of the Dahl estate?

    OMG...I thought I was the only person alive that still had that song emblazened into their subconscious:

    "Onk-Unk-Onk-Unk-Onk-Unk...Three more-a days 'til Halloween...Sil-vuuuuuuur Shamrock!"

    Probably the worst 90 minutes of my life. This jingle is high comedy for me and my wife now. Those friggin masks.
