    Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

    Okay, so, here's my review.

    This was literally one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. If you go to it with a heck of a lot imagination and willing to accept the fact that it is incredibly weird from the beginning, there are scenes that you would crack up laughing in that would just be... well... really odd if you were expecting a normal movie.

    Johnny Depp is a god. (Purely for use of an expression). He is amazing. Incredibly, incredibly talented. And, he has the looks to match. I'm serious. I love Heath Ledger, but, even for him being forty, I do think Johnny Depp may just be the best looking person I've seen. Which is weird... because most people seem to only like him as a pirate. Ah, well, what can I say. I'm a sucker for dark hair, dark eyes, and strong cheek/jaw bones.

    Anyway, looks aside (obviously, because he's quite scary looking in this and some of his other movies. *cough* Edward Scissorhands), he does great. To pull of the extreme behavior of his character really takes a lot of talent. Holy cow.

    Tim Burton is an insane genious. Wow... either he was born with a heck of a lot of imagination, or he's something like... dislexic (or however the heck you spell it), but, wow. That was amazing. So... weird.

    Oompa Loompa's = HA!

    I'm not a person that really, really enjoys funny movies. I mean, I'll go to them and laugh, but usually there has to be something really, really quirky about it for me to see twice or even consider buying. Now granted, this isn't supposed to just be a funny movie, but, it's got the quirkiness down. I was on the verge of tears, and peeing my pants I was laughing that hard.

    Everyone, go see it. Make sure you go with an extremely open mind and accepting the fact that it's going to be really, really, really weird... and you will laugh incredibly. Also, don't expect the original. It's not the original. I, personally, think it's a heck of a lot better than the original. (Then again, I really never liked it. So... yeah). It's the book (*points to the name...* look, it's got the correct name). And it's awesome.

    Johnny should have so many best actor Oscars by now. Seriously.

I agree completely about Johnny Depp. He's simply in a whole other class of acting compared to many of today's actors. And he's so yummy to look at...*drools a bit* -- Have you seen 'Chocolat'? Not so much of a stretch for his acting ability, but mmm...makes you sometimes forget the movie actually has a plot....

Anyway, back to the movie at hand - The part with the puppets starting on fire really, really scared me. It could be because I'm scared of dolls/puppets already, but who knows. Overall I will admit it exceeded the original(I am usually the biggest anti-remake person you could possibly find) - But yeah, the keeping it more real with the book issue was good. And yeah, only Tim Burton could have really pulled this off. I walked out of this movie quite speechless. And the more I think about it, the more I like it.

Good stuff.

I haven't seen Chocolat yet. I was going to watch Donnie Brasco the other day on tv, but I didn't get home in time. But, seriously, he can make me like the movie Blow... which is totally something I wouldn't watch if it wasn't for him.

I seriously thought I was going to have nightmares after it, and I ended up cracking up the whole entire time. Then I ended up going to it with Gina... again... and I caught some new things.

Like the line about the cannibal thing... I didn't catch what he said at the beginning of it.

I do believe that through the whole entire puppet scene I was laughing my heart out. Then the "Puppet Recovery and Burn Center" thing... oh geez.

I think I ended up crying when he tells how he found the oompa loompas. The 'sign language' just about did me in. :P
