    Charlie And The Chocolate Factory
    Directed by Tim Burton

    * In case you're wondering how I saw this film two weeks before opening...
    I get a free pass to see Warner Brothers trade screenings before they're released.

    Tim Burton is one of the most creative directors of all time.
    He has an amazing talent for visualisations in his works.
    This film was no different.

    If you've seen Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory,
    read the Roald Dahl book, and seen any other Tim Burton film,
    then you can already imagine most of this film.

    I thought it was a good film, but nothing more.

    (Fuck the pictures. Shit's not working.)

    So, I guess it is more like the book,
    but it still has a lot of the old movie visuals in it.

    Also, Helena Bonham Carter is Charlie's mom.
    Yea, the girl from Fight Club.

    I really want to see it.

    The one part aired in the commercial pisses me off though. The "don't touch the squirrels nuts"

    are there any more jokes like this one? please say no.

    I kind of hoped this would be a darker version since it's directed by Tim Burton. I haven't seen it and haven't read whatever rage wrote about it, but I'm guessing it's not.

    Yeah the first version was a little dark, but Tim Burton has a knack for showing the flaws of human characteristics, and this movie is set up for his kind of directing/interpreting. I was hoping it would have the same feel as Edward Scissorhands.

    And Gene Wilder was awesome. It made me sad to see how old he's gotten in the DVD of the first version.
