Charlie & The Chocolate Factory

Charlie Bucket is a poor young boy. Together with his whole family, he lives in a very small house near the chocolate factory of Willy Wonka. Charlie’s grandpa Joe tells him that he used to work for Willy Wonka until one day the factory was closed and every employee was fired. Ever since then he always wanted to see the inside of the factory one last time to see what has happened since the days he worked there, but the gates have remained closed all that time and nobody knows what is going on in there. When one day, Willy Wonka sends out a message to the world that five children will be invited to see the factory, the whole family scrapes together all their money to buy a Wonka bar in the hopes to get one of the five golden tickets that grant access…

Sound and Vision:
The image and sound of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory are just perfect. There’s no grain, no compression errors, good contrast and high detail present and absolutely nothing to complain about. Also the soundtrack is nice and although the surround speakers are used more subtle, the music from Danny Elfman nicely supports the story and when effects do happen, your whole system will be immersing you into the world of Willy Wonka

Extras:
None, you’ll have to get the special edition to get any

Conclusion:
Tim Burton has again succeeded to make a magical movie and the cast is just perfect for the job. This movie will put a smile on any kid’s face and its parents at the same time as well. Johnny Depp does a terrific job as the strange Willy Wonka while Christopher Lee constantly reminds you of his former role of the devious count Dracula. Tim Burton has managed to make a great family movie that does have its dark sides, just like we’re used from him. However, the man that really steals the show is Deep Roy who plays the role of all the Oompa Loompas.

One advise: get this DVD!
