It’s a strange thing, taste in Charlie And The Chocolate Factory movie

Charlie And The Chocolate Factory movie review: There are people who will tell you, under the misty-eyed delusion of nostalgia, that Mel Stuart’s entertaining but heavily flawed Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory is an indisputable epic.
