    Gene Wilder June 11, 1933 August 29, 2016 Goodbye Gene, you ll always be Willy Wonka to me.Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl first published in 1964 was an immediate children s classic and has inspired two film versions.I was surprised to see that neither of the films came close to Dahl s text Dahl s Willy Wonka is a dark creature who killed children, crushed their bones and baked them into

    I was planning on writing an extremely argumentative review explaining how sadistically vile Willie Wonka is, and how his god like complex ruined the lives of four flawed children But that seems insensitive at the moment Instead I shall simply say that Gene Wilder dominated his performance as Willie Wonka He carried all the outward charm, the charisma and the playfulness, but still managed to portray the suggesti

    Slightly odd story of virtuous poverty rewarded by evil capitalist who caused the poverty by firing all his workers in favour of employing non human immigrants.Unemployment from the chocolate factory, apparently the only consumer of labour in the otherwise stagnant economy of Charlie s home town, proving I suppose that an excess of chocolate is really bad for you both economically and physically requires that all of his g

    I m sitting here on the couch watching Violet turn violet and fill up with juice before being sent off to the de juicing room The sun is going down, and it s almost bedtime out here, at least for the kids My night is just beginning I ve been halfway following along with the movie and thinking about how awesome it was to be a kid to dream of chocolate factories and eating a lifetime supply of chocolate with no fear of diabetes or a heart attack This

    I was ten years old and already the magic was gone from the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, leprechauns, Santa Claus and his buddy the Krampus All was stripped of its power to enthrall Heck, even sex had been demystified years prior Then along came Charlie and the Chocolate Factory It gloried in candy, my number one passion of the day But not only that, eating candy was the means to getting even MORE candy Ah, the golden ticket How, oh, how I longed for it t

    The movie always fascinated me both as a kid and adult so I was really eager to jump into this and see if I could figure it out But dude, i m still stumped I m not sure if Willy Wonka is supposed to be mad, a genius, or a mad genius There s just so many priceless lines of dialogue that the movies also captured so well, and this book is so whimsical and wholesome, yet dark with sort of a fable esque message about greed and whatnot from the Oompa Loompa s songs poems
