"The best version of Willy Wonka"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I grew up watching the Willy Wonka film multiple times. Even though I love Johnny Depp as an actor, the ‘Charlie and the chocolate factory’ does not compare to the original film. The original has all the songs we know and love, from “Pure imagination” to “Oompa Loompa”.

If there is any version of Willy Wonka to see its this one. :)

"My granddaughter loves this movie"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Having received a special willy wonka personalised book for christmas I decided to get the original movie for my granddaughter. She loves it, watched it as least once a day since. The original movie has something magical that the newer version with Johnny Depp doesn't have. Gene Wilder is the perfect Willy Wonka. Would definitely recommend.

Description

The classic 1971 Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory movie starring Gene Wilder.

The one-and-only Willy Wonka makes the world taste good for a whole new generation in this magical family classic sparkling with brilliantly restored picture and sound! Also included is the all-new documentary Pure Imagination, featuring interviews with Gene Wilder and the Wonka kids and revealing production secrets from the movie.

When they find prized Golden Tickets inside their Wonka candy bars, five lucky children win a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the legendary candy factory run by the mysterious Willy Wonka (Gene Wilder). Now, on a whirlwind tour of Willys incredible, edible realm of milk chocolate waterfalls, elfish Ooompa-Loompas and industrial-sized sugar-coated creations, one very special boy will discover the sweetest secret of all: a generous, loving heart.

Review

“…“Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” is probably the best film of its sort since "The Wizard of Oz.” It is everything that family movies usually claim to be, but aren't: Delightful, funny, scary, exciting, and, most of all, a genuine work of imagination. “Willy Wonka” is such a surely and wonderfully spun fantasy that it works on all kinds of minds, and it is fascinating because, like all classic fantasy, it is fascinated with itself.

It's based on the well-known Roald Dahl children's book, and it was financed by the Quaker Oats Company as an experiment in providing high-quality family entertainment. It succeeds. It doesn't cut corners and go for cheap shortcuts like Disney. It provides a first-rate cast (Gene Wilder as the compulsively distrustful chocolate manufacturer, Jack Albertson as the game old grandfather), a first-rate production, and – I keep coming back to this – genuine imagination."… Roger Ebert
