Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and its original mood, manner, and visualization from the novel (Part 1)

Since it was published in America in 1964, Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (1964) has become a classic of children’s literature.  The book is still assigned reading in many middle school and high school curricula and has spawned two film adaptations, 1971’s Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and Tim Burton’s 2005 fantasy, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Although Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory has become a generational touchstone for kids raised in the 1970s (myself included), the recent Tim Burton adaptation is, surprisingly, far…

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory wasn’t made for the family to watch

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory wasn’t made for the family to watch

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory wasn’t made for the family to watch. Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory is far more enjoyable than the 2005’s take. All this is irrelevant, of course, to the new Charlie and the Chocolate Factory except that it’s amazing that, amid the tumult of movie-making, Joel, Christine, Lillian, Joel’s parents and I all took a little break at the local multiplex to see it. The general reaction was positive, with Joel’s parents by far the…

Charlie And The Chocolate Factory 2005 movie: The iconic novel made into big-screen twice!

Charlie And The Chocolate Factory 2005 movie from Roald Dahl’s novels have entertained and entranced children and their imaginations for years. Several successful films have been made based on his works, but the most recognisable Dahl adaptation has to be the 1971 film Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, based on his 1964 novel, Charlie And The Chocolate Factory. The story of a poor boy who, with the help of winning a golden ticket into the world’s…

There’s a dark side to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’s fun

There’s a dark side to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’s fun

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory 2005 film review: If there is any living director who can do the right to the warped nature of Roald Dahl’s “kids’ tales,” it’s Tim Burton. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory isn’t the first time these two have “collaborated.” Burton produced Henry Selick’s animated James and the Giant Peach, but this time he’s in the director’s chair, with his favorite star in the camera’s crosshairs. Although this film is an adaptation of one…

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory 2005 full movie is not that child-friendly

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory 2005 full movie is not that child-friendly

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory 2005 full movie review: From the appearance, Willy Wonka’s factory is a dark, imposing industrial edifice overshadowing rows of red-brick shops and houses — something out of Fritz Lang’s “Metropolis” planted in the landscape of Charles Dickens’s “Hard Times.” It is not ugly, exactly — by now we are accustomed to seeing grandeur in this kind of architecture — but it is nonetheless forbidding. The interior, of course, is another…

Ant-Man Partners with the Wasp Are in Marvel Sequel

Ant-Man Partners with the Wasp Are in Marvel Sequel

Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man and Evangeline Lilly’s The Wasp, will rub shoulders in Ant-Man And The Wasp. Despite not much press yet for the upcoming Marvel sequel – which makes sense given that Marvel Studios is still focused on soon-to-come Black Panther, followed by May’s Avengers: Infinity War – the Ant-Man sequel is expected to be quite pivotal as the narrative direction of the MCU moving forward. Last to roll out during Marvel’s 10th anniversary year, the sequel will see the return of director Peyton…

The Witty Easter Egg Hidden In Ant-Man And The Wasp’s Trailer

The Witty Easter Egg Hidden In Ant-Man And The Wasp’s Trailer

Earlier today, Marvel dropped the first trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp, which found Evangeline Lilly’s Hope van Dyne making her official superhero debut in the form of The Wasp, which was teased in the Ant-Man mid-credits scene. Just like in the first film, audiences can expect a lot of shrinking-related action in the sequel, and while Hope has wings built into her suit, Scott will have to stick with calling winged ants to quickly transport him somewhere else….

The Overdue Entertainment of Thor 3 Ragnarok

The Overdue Entertainment of Thor 3 Ragnarok

Marvel Studios’ latest flick suggests the future of superhero films may rely more and more on embracing their inherent wackiness in Thor 3 Ragnarok. When Marvel Studios released the original Thor in 2011, it was their trickiest franchise to date: This time the hero was not an irradiated Earthling or a man in a metal suit, but a surfer-blond ET who also happened to be a Norse demigod with an almighty hammer. Wisely, the studio chose to…

Thor Ragnarok And Justice League– Who says superhero movies can’t be funny?

Thor Ragnarok And Justice League– Who says superhero movies can’t be funny?

Thor Ragnarok And Justice League– Who says superhero movies can’t be funny? Early in Justice League, the new DC Comics juggernaut, Batman (Ben Affleck) is gathering his team of exiled, misfit superheroes to defeat a growing threat. Getting into Batman’s luxurious car, The Flash (Ezra Miller) wonders, “What are your superpowers again?” To which the Caped Crusader simply responds, “I’m rich.” It’s a one-liner that echoes a similarly glib moment from Thor Ragnarok. You know,…

Thor Ragnarok Review – Asgard is once again under attack

Thor Ragnarok Review – Asgard is once again under attack

Thor Ragnarok full movie Review: Death goddess Hela (Cate Blanchett) returns from exile to claim the throne of Asgard, thrashing Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and banishing him to the fighting pits of Sakaar. There, reunited with the absent-since-Ultron Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), he must fight his way to freedom, return home and beat the usurper. With Marvel properties, as with Betelgeuse, third time’s always the charm. Each hero starts with a carefully pitched origin story; then…

Thor Ragnarok review: The Mighty Gods have been kind to us, it’s officially one of the best Marvel films to date

Thor Ragnarok review: The Mighty Gods have been kind to us, it’s officially one of the best Marvel films to date

Thor Ragnarok full movie: Directed by: Taika Waititi Starring: Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Tessa Thompson, Jeff Goldblum, Karl Urban, Anthony Hopkins,… Rating: 4.5/5 Chris Hemsworth’s as charming as ever, and as Cate Blanchett is venomously over-the-top as Hela, but director Taika Waititi is the star. He has made one of Marvel’s best movies. It is astonishing, truthfully, that Thor Ragnarok full movie was made. It’s incredible that perhaps thousands of folks…

The Marvelous Joys of Thor Ragnarok full movie

The Marvelous Joys of Thor Ragnarok full movie

The problem with superhero movies is simple. What began as rollicking work by a handful of inspired creators saving the world in crowded midtown offices became the bureaucratic sludge of huge business. The hands-on flair is long gone, replaced by corporate decision-making planned a decade in advance, transforming the viewing experience from giddy-kiddie aestheticism to executive Kremlinology, the sussing out of politics from onscreen clues. Still, Thor Ragnarok full movie looks a bit distinguished; it bears…

Thor Ragnarok is a complete stroke of ingeniousness

REVIEW: Even if you’re not into superhero movies at all, you’re going to love Thor Ragnarok. Not only is it hilarious – it’s the best Marvel film yet. THOR has always existed in one of the grimmer corners of the MCU film series with its grandiose tales about fathers complete with sons and family secrets. Be assured, this third installment is not that. Thor Ragnarok full movie is an exhilarating, fresh take on the superhero movie, a…

Thor Ragnarok: Marvel’s wackily bold gamble

Thor’s latest entry – Thor Ragnarok full movie marks a stark (not the Tony stuff) difference from the movie’s predecessors. In the franchise’s third instalment, our favourite Norse god Thor has come into his own, flipped his golden mane back and is down to have a good time. The audience will only adore the guy more for it. You’ve never seen Marvel take such a bet and come out with a glorious success. Thor Ragnarok is less…
