HA! I'M STILL TOTALLY FREAKING OUT ABOUT THIS! DUDDDDEEEEE!
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.
