Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)

One of my favorite books as a kid, so I was really hoping they would nail it on screen. Something I didn't feel the original pulled off. For the most part, this was a good edition. I loved the beginning of the film, the way everything was set up and the choice of characters.

I was skeptical of Depp's portrayal of Willy Wonka. He was a bit odd, but not odd enough to really annoy me. I thought the second half of the movie turned slightly sour. Visually stunning. Worth seeing. But there is room for improvement.

Rating: C+
