Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory: A movie filled with a list of elaborate candies, visuals and a unique costumes
I got a golden ticket
Umpa Umpa Dopedy Doo, do I have another puzzle for you, come join us on one of Hollywood's strangest fairy tale stories since "Wizard of Oz." I'm sorry for the rhyming moment, but I thought it might be appropriate when rating this movie. Based off the classic kids' novel, "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" tells the story about a boy, named Charlie Bucket (Peter Ostrum), whom comes from a poor family, in amidst of the "Great Deppression", wins a golden ticket to visit Willy Wonka's chocolate factory, where all sorts of mischief occurs that'll tickle your imagination. Along with several other rotten kids, that somehow meet their own end due their greed and stupidity, throughout the movie. Featuring the great comedian, Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka. I was really impressed with the set designs and creativity of this film, as it literally takes your breath away. Perhaps one of the most imaginative and innovative film since "Wizard of Oz", "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" takes you on a bizarre fairy tale of imagination in which some of your wildest child like dreams can come true. Even Gene Wilder's song, "Pure imagination", fits the theme of the movie pretty well. As well as the rest of the songs, as they're able to define all the events perfectly into the film. I remember growing up as a kid, this used to be one of my favorite movies. Although, this is a bit dated by today's standards, and the story is a tad predictable, but you never get bored as you just can't help but be intriqued by the magic of this movie. Overall, a great family classic.
