This review is from: Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971) [DVD] (DVD)
This film is superb! I cant believe peopl are bashing the musical score etc as the songs are funny, quaint, cute and occasionally heart warmingly soft. So what if Gene doesnt have the best voice, its not all about operatics. My son (5) loved every minute of this, just as i did when i was his age. The new version (Johnny Depp) seemed to take Willy down a very dark and strange path, much like his other movies, and for me, that wasnt what Willy Wonka was all about. The original is a classic!
