Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is one of those rare movies that comes along and completely changes the way that fantasy films are made. Very much like the book, even though it seems simple and childish, you would like to stop for a second to collect those feelings and try to analyze them but you don't have the time.
A lot of attention was paid to the sets and visual effects, clever special effects such as a trap door and miniturization testify to the care that the producers put into making this movie. And that is the genius. The tickets start to be found, with the fifth going to a very special boy, called Charlie Bucket. It also features outstanding performances by the entire cast. Those unheard, barely seen changes can be read many ways. Some Oscar Nominations should fall here.
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is simply magic - a film that everyone must see, especially parents whose kids are just becoming that bit too big for their boots!

Gene Wilder takes the lead role of Willy Wonka, magnetic and bordering on clued in madness, Wilder takes his rightful place in the pantheon of memorable performances performed in fantasy pictures. And, oh boy, I was in delight!

Fantasy Family 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. Both are perfectly good and legitimate themes, but my reading of the book left me with an impression that Roald Dahl was more concerned with the former theme than the latter.
Don't expect a bleak remake of the amusing and rather psychedelic 1971-version. The film became highly popular in part through repeated television airings and home entertainment sales. Eat candy, run around and play, steal fizzy lifting drinks and bump into the ceiling that now has to be washed and sterilized, it doesn't matter as long as no one's looking.

Each winning child is exposed as being rotten-to-the-core, then dealt with harshly and dismissively by Wonka.
Give me Gene Wilder's version over creepy Johnny Depp's Michael Jackson take any day. Within about two seconds, I was completely mesmerized!

Gene Wilder is a comedic genius who will forever be the timeless Willy Wonka. The film's set design is fabulous, with particular high-spots including the chocolate room, the egg room and the wacky corridor which gets smaller and narrower the closer you get to the end. Charlie and The Chocolate Factory is a step forward in the direction he gave to his career with Big Fish. In the Chocolate Eggs Room, Wonka uses geese to lay golden eggs. Everything that was mentioned, from the chocolate palace to the hair toffee, was taken directly from the book. Here, his acting ability showcases that genius.
The other is the 2005 Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, starring Johnny Depp. The Oompa-Loompa musical numbers blew. Songs are provided by Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricuse, with the sumptuous art coming from Harper Goff. Although the film received generally positive reviews, it became a box office bomb. Burton never has been so generous in terms of human warmness.

It's disturbing because it strikes a certain primal chord: freedom and danger are entwined, and people have never wanted to associate children with either. The sets are also just fantastic and so yummy to look at. Willy Wonka is the stranger with a bag of chocolate that parents are always warning their kids about, but what he's really offering is a seductive nightmare in a kaleidescope of candy colors, a cautionary tale told with fairy story whimsy.

Johnny Depp gives us a strange, almost creepy Willy Wonka, Freddie Highmore is a perfect Charlie, the Grandparents are lovable and wacky, and the five other children and their parents are amusingly irritating. Along the way, mild disasters befall each of the odious children, but can Charlie beat the odds and grab the brass ring?
