This evening I went to see the movie “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” at Broadway Theater, Olympian City Plaza.
Johnny Depp has always taken on strange and unusual roles in the past. This time with the character of “Willy Wonka” it is definitely the most unusual even compared to “Edward” in “Edward Scissorhands“, but Depp made it very believable.
Depp played an eccentric chocolatier who owns the worlds best chocolate company. With a director like “Tim Burton” the story became a fairy tale similar to Burton’s “Edward Scissorhands“, “Big Fish” and “Beetle Juice“. You could see elements of all these movies in this one.
Along with Steven Spielberg and John Woo, Tim Burton is one of my three favorite directors. This time Burton had again brought us his traditional fairy tale that we have came to expect.
