    It should be creepy. I've always thought Charlie and the Chocolate Factory had an incredibly dark side to it, and I also always thought it was a bit odd that it was viewed as a children's movie.
    There's no earthly way of knowing
    Which direction we are going
    There's no knowing where we're rowing
    Or which way the river's flowing
    Is it raining? Is it snowing?
    Is a hurricane a-blowing?

    Not a speck of light is showing
    So the danger must be growing
    Are the fires of hell a-glowing?
    Is the grisly reaper mowing?
    Yes, the danger must be growing
    'Cause the rowers keep on rowing
    And they're certainly not showing
    Any signs that they are slowing!

    Agree 100% Michael. As a fan of the book, this definately looks like it follows it more closely.

    As for Hollywood's original ideas, almost all of our current horror movies are remakes of far superior Japanese films.

    Agreed. "And I don't have a big problem with remakes that are done well and use technology their benefit. Not that they should be done ad nauseum or only for profit.

    I am very much looking forward to Peter Jackson's King Kong for instance - it's a remake of the 30's version - which is probably my all-time favorite movie since I was little. It'll just be a neat way of re-living the story and experience all over again instead of just watching the same film til the end of time. Ecspecially because Jackson's an up and coming, talented director with an appreciation for film on the level of Spielburg and Scorsese etc..., so I can dig that. It'll be fun to see.

    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.

    Re: Trailer: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

    The real problem is that Depp looks too young for Willy Wonka in this movie - everything else about it looks like a fun movie to see - and I'll see it - but I always thought Willy Wonka was supposed to be an older, tired man ready to hand over his business to the most deserving child after years and years of work.

    Depp looks like a teenager in this - and his character comes off as contrived and forced - it's a distraction.

    Whatever with the Michael Jackson parallels - that's a stretch - but Depp just doesn't fit the part and it was a poor casting decision by Burton or whomever.

    Hope to catch it soon though as it does look like a well done remake with some different twists so as not to be too predictable.
