>>64424264 I like Gene Wilder a lot more as Wonka but honestly prefer the Burton version. Pity it wastes time with an unnecessary 20 minute sequence on the end. Neither anywhere near as good as the book but I'm biased because it was my favourite book as a kid.
The Wilder version is way above the Depp version, although the Depp version is still interesting in it's own right. It just lacks the subtlety that made Wilder such an effective Wonka, and relied too heavily on visually representing 'imagination' rather than letting it build in the mind of the viewer.
>>64424264 The music alone should put Burton's Wonka in its own shit tier of movie adaptations. The most annoying fucking thing I've heard and seen, the POO oompa loompas were about the shittest thing about the movie.
>>64424264 New one is closer to the original story I guess, but Wonka's backstory was really unecessary. Also it looked too dark and creepy, even when it was trying to be whimsical. The tunnel ride and slugworth in the original are creepy but they work because they stand out from the rest of the film.
>>64424441 Dahl hated the movie for giving it a happy ending. The book ended with the boy accepting that he was only going to live for a few more years as a mouse, and resolving to do as much as he could in that time. It also had the implication that the fat kid was killed by his parents.
He hated the 'happy' ending so much that he stood outside his local cinema with a megaphone telling people not to see it.
