just because a movie is a remake doesnt mean its going to be terrible

both Depp and Burton are brimming with talent..... if anyone could do it, they could

Burton+Deep= Good. It's basic algebra!
(I don't know what the original film was anyway)

It is a remake, and I think it's a good idea. Burton is great at story-telling, and the general feel and ambiance of his films is awesome. Gene Wilder made Wonka into a dreamer and jokester, where in the book by Roald Dahl he is more malignant, more darkly mischievious. I'm sure Depp will be able to convey that. I look forward to seeing this movie.

True, the first was great, and why fuck with a great? Because other people have different interpretations of a story, and I wanna see where Tim Burton takes it. As long as he doesn't do what they did to "Psycho". But I doubt that would happen.

Lol, anjaba i hope you realize that it was originally a book that is nothing like the 1971 film. I loved the 1971 film but it was the disgrace... to the book that is. Burton's movie is expected to be more in line with the book which means it will take a darker tone as if the vibe of that chocolate river boat ride was present throught most of the film.

I expect it to be quite good.

:shocked:Ahhhh..I've never read the book.  Hmmmm...now it's actually intrigueing hearing that the book is different.  Especially considering how I hate movies that differ from the books.  I think I found some literature to keep me busy :grin:

Read it... it'll take all of 2 days, and that's if you're an incredibly slow reader. And it's very good. Very different from the more popular film.

Does Johnny Depp sing?

Edit: Genre: Fantasy / Adventure / Comedy / Family Don't think it's a musical. Could be wrong though.

I dunno...I kinda hope not. I didn't know Richard Gere could sing, but they cast him in "Chicago".

Alright, I just watched the trailer. It looks updated and pretty cool. I like the "wonka-vision" glasses.

Chewing gum is really gross, chewing gum I hate the most.

A movie can deviate from the book that it was based on and still be good. Kubrik's version of the shining was an amazing movie, yet it was vastly different from King's novel. The version that did fall in line with the book actually sucked pretty hard.

Anyways, Im really looking forward to the new wonka movie. And as others have said, I'll be gettin really baked before I see it  :stash:
