    Charlie and The Chocolate Factory

    YouTube - Charlie and the Chocolate Factory trailer

    I just watched this wonderful movie even though it was made a few year's back. Johnny Depp is incredible in it, as in everything he does.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.


    True love is wanting to give to another person without any thought about
    who’s getting the better of the deal.

    Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise

    ~All quotes by Leo Buscaglia

    I guess I need to see this version. I liked the original. I will have to check it out. I am not that hot for Johnny Depp but he is okay.

    I prefer the original. Where naughty children get their just desserts.

    I prefer the original, in book form that is.

    I didn't see the original, but I wanted to see this one because I really like Johnny Depp!

    They don't in this version?? Sad. That was one of the best parts.

    I love Johnny Depp and I enjoyed his version of it but the original one still holds a place in my heart.

    I thought this new version was incredibly dark, bizarre and a tad bit creepy.

    Roald Dahl books are both sweet and scarey but worthy of reading if you loved Charlie & the Chocolate Factory.

    Watched the Gene Wilder version over Easter - essential viewing whilst eating chocolate
