    Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory or Charlie & the Chocolate Factory? Which movie do you prefer?

    Easily Wilder's Willy Wonka vs Depp's Willy Wonka.....Wilder's Willy is a classic that gets better every year....Depp's Wilder is fading away in everybody's memory very quickly.

    I would have to agree that Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka was, and is my favorite. Both movies are great fun though!

    The classic Wonka was fantastic, but I'm pretty partial to Burton's style. He's so weird and intriguing.

    Both are great movies in their own rite. I love both Wilder and Depp and it is hard to compare them given the changes in technology and effects. I can watch either and be equally amused.

    I too would have to say the original is my favorite. Even though i do love the colors, and tend to be drawn to Burton's interpretations,  the oompa loompas and Johnny Depps teeth in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory scared me a little.

    The original has a greater re-watchability, in my opinion. Depp, a great actor in many kinds of roles, nevertheless seemed to be playing the character ironically, instead of authentically. Or maybe I felt he was mocking the character instead of truly inhabiting it. Wilder, also a great actor, brought his own famous warmth to Wonka. Depp and Burton,  predictably, went for an edgy, creepy feel. The original seems more kid-friendly without being patronizing.
