looks like it will be a lot worst than the Wilder one.

seriously, I saw the previews and it's looks over-the-top ridiculous

you can't like something JUST because it has Depp...then we'd have to like Nick of Time!

Even worse, then we'd have to like The Astronaut's Wife!

I had to shop there for a birthday present for my daughter. They had t-shirts from the movie, and they were the only place I could find them in this town. So I bought one, and some trading cards. And some Depp postcards. They didn't have the cool poster from the movie... I don't normally shop there, although I have bought my nephew giftcards to that store for the holidays...

Well, I mean. I've bought a fair share of shirts there mostly because they're one of the only stores that carry the sorts of shirts I'd want. I bought the Zeppelin US 77 tour shirt there. One of my many Coldplay ones. And that's just to name a few.

But the store itself caters to the angst-ridden teen cliches I've grown to loathe.

Yahoo has clips and an interview w/ Johnny, Tim Burton

There's something nice about listening to Johnny's voice and seeing him in front of a fountain of chocolate so early in the AM

I like what Tim Burton does. Nightmare before Christmas is one of my favorites.

To me, Depp makes the Willie Wonka character look too young and impish.

I'm the exact opposite. I think he makes Wonka look more demented. Maybe the whole manboy thing makes him seem even more creepy? I don't know for sure, I just think he looks great and is a great envisioning of a character that I always imagined to be as twisted and strange as it gets.

I think Tim Burton is a fucking genius, and I liked or LOVED everything he's ever done.

I also think Johnny Depp is a fucking brilliant actor, and I like ALMOST everything he's done.

However, those two things combined cannot eclipse the pure and utter adoration and praise I have for Gene Wilder. And Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is my all time favorite Wilder performance.

I'm not expecting Burton's version to be BETTER than Wilder's (I say that like he directed it.. ) but I am still anticipating this film almost as much as I did Star Wars Episode III ( x 1000)

I'm sure it will be great, but nothing will be able to top the original film.

I dont really care for crowded theatres. I like to watch movies in peace, without a bunch of people/teens goofing off, laughing, talking, yelling, in my ear .. etc. That's how it is where I live anyway Plus I'd rather spend $3 for a relaxing evening in my living room than $10 for the above.

True, but that would only work if you had a 42" plasma TV

Otherwise, there are some movies that are worth watching in a movie theater... because of their photography, special effects, etc.

Perhaps you should schedule going to the movies accordingly, like when it's less crowded or no teens around (during school year when they should be in school). 9 days to go!

Surprisingly the cinema in downtown San Diego which is really nice inside is always empty so I always go there... personally I cant stand movie theaters...i like to watch movies in quiet...and with other people answering cellphones, chewing, talking, getting up etc ... is irritating
and plus i'm a bit of a germ freak and i start thinking of all the people sneezing/coughing..all the people who might have sat in my current seat

overall my biggest complaint is that my friends and me have very different movie tastes.. they're more into "Monster in-law" or "meet the fockers"...two movies i would never think of going to see

and of course movies like "sin city" "aquatic life" "garden state" are movies they would never want to watch

my boyfriend and i have very very similar taste in movies so that's the important thing


hahaha,,,and i dont liek making out in movies...
im such a film enthusiast that i want to WATCH the movie if i wanted to make out i wouldnt be there

Johnny Depp is gorgeous and I love all his acting roles. While he's not as beautiful in this film as he was in, say, Chocolat ( x infinity)...and my friend and I have determined he looks a bit like Michael Jackson, I still can't wait to see it.

My friend and I are seeing it in IMAX!

edited to add: Tim Burton is awesomely amazing as well
