    Okay, I'm sure many of you may have seen both the original, "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" and possibly it's remake, "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory", by now.  However, now it's time to compare the two, and see which one you think is the better film.  Here are your criterias to judge. 

    Best Charlie Buckett

    Best Willy Wonka

    Best Umpa Lumpas

    Best Visuals

    Best Songs

    Best supporting cast

    And finally, Best story and better overall film

    Personally, this isn't much of a contest to me, as the original wins in all categories if you want my opinion.  However, I doubt seriously any of you in forums wants me to elaborate on that, as this is more about how...YOU feel which one is better than the other.  So how about it folks...which is the better movie? big_smile

    The original was by far the best, I don't like how they changed Willy Wonka from eccentric to 'weird and abused'.

    I like the original for nostalgic reasons.  However, the newer version with the combo of Johnny Depp and new technology is the winner!

    The original is better by far. I would say forget about charlie bucket. Veruka and Violet were the true stars of the original. And Gene Wilder was great of course.

    The only thing I liked about the new version was willy wonkas back story, and the chocolate river was much more impression. But, the new movie sucked.

    The umpa loompas from the original movie were best. the new movie had songs that were too modern for little kids, and I thought they were just filler.
