Charlie and The Chocolate Factory

Why are they remaking every good film that ever existed? What’s next, a remake of Ghostbusters??

Charlie and the Chocolate FactoryBurton offered no new insight into the Planet of the Apes and there really is no need for this version.

I guess Roald Dahl did not like Gene Wilder’s version because it wasn’t dark enough and too corny on the musical numbers, wanted it to appeal to adults more.

What this Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (check out the Widescreen Edition) lacks is a heart, who cares about Charlie or Wonka or all the little brats? Without much personality, they all seem expendable. As well as Bad News Bears, stick to the original. Sometimes they get it as good as its going to get the first time around.
