Oh god. Tim Burton, Johnny Depp. I love both of you but stop making remakes, they're just bad. This movie should never have been remade. Even Gene Wilder said this was an insult. The visuals are nice. The chocolate river actually looks like chocolate. The kid actors aren't bad but I think they were more annoying in this one than the original. So this film isn't really a musical, the Oompa Loompas are the only ones who sing. Are they even Oompa Loompas? They don't even have a unique design. They look like a regular guy and they all look the same. Also, the songs are like from each decade which were interesting but nothing compared to the original.
It's funny how the original was called Willy Wonka but was about Charlie but this one is called Charlie but is about Willy Wonka. They gave him more backstory but the elephant in the room, this is Depp's worse performance. Also, it felt Charlie was way to nice in this one. He was nice in the original but still acted like a kid. This one was too kind. Well, the film ends with Charlie and his family living in the factory with Wonka. So Charlie living with Wonka, that shouldn't be so bad. Wait, he grows up to be Norman Bates(look it up).
So that's it for Remake Week. Tomorrow, we begin Crime Week.
