I had been dreaming to watch this classic movie since months ago. Then last week I bought it for RM39.90 at Speedy. Well, what I can say is....the movie is not that satisfying. I expected it to be very much like "The Wizard of Oz" movie (1939)....which is extremely colourful and so alive. But, it is not.
Of course, I can't compare to the modern version, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory The Movie (The latest version - Johny Depp), which is more alive and colourful. Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory The Movie is more sincere and honest in displaying dreams and hearts desires of a kid because the plots of the movie are more logical and real. However, it does not stress on Charlie that much.
In a nutshell, the novel seems more alive than the movie (Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory). It's more than enough to watch Charlie and The Chocolate Factory The Movie (The latest version - Johny Depp) after reading the book....okay?!
