It's Harry's third year at Hogwarts; not only does he have a new "Defense Against the Dark Arts" teacher, but there is also trouble brewing. Convicted murderer Sirius Black has escaped the Wizards' Prison and is coming after Harry.
When Willy Wonka decides to let five children into his chocolate factory, he decides to release five golden tickets in five separate chocolate bars, causing complete mayhem. The tickets start to be found, with the fifth going to a very special boy, called Charlie Bucket. With his Grandpa, Charlie joins the rest of the children to experience the most amazing factory ever. But not everything goes to plan within the factory. Written by
At the beginning of the movie when it's lights out, Charlie sees the factory through a big hole on the house roof. He can easily get hypothermia from the cold wintry night with a hole that big. See more »
This is a story of an ordinary little boy named Charlie Bucket. He was not faster, or stronger, or more clever than other children. His family was not rich or powerful or well-connected; in fact, they barely had enough to eat. Charlie Bucket was the luckiest boy in the entire world. He just didn't know it yet.

If you love kids, don't let them watch this darkness but warn them against its cruelty; have them see the 1971 Wilder version instead: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067992/ though even it is regrettably dark, parental discretion & warning strongly advised. I have no desire to be negative about Johnny Depp's considerable gifts; it's rather the film's monstrous concept that's the problem, though I've no idea whether this or the 1971 Wilder version is closer to the book original. While Gene Wilder's 1971 version is a not-quite-so-dark delight, this darker version is needlessly and gratuitously cruel (not knowing which version is truer to the book original), kind of like the current vile, sadistic "angry birds" phenomenon that kids also don't need, as harshly as the cold, selfish, senseless world in which they're made to suffer already seeks their destruction. So much for the high price of post-Christian anti-God "freedom" (e.g. the hypocritical Star Trek delusions of godhood) where the imagined "cure" is vastly worse than the disease so grossly ignorantly and hypocritically condemned by lawless fascists, as the once great and literate civilization sinks ever lower into gross illiterate barbarism, as seen in this film, significantly surpassed by the 1971 rendition & its wonderful musical nature, seen at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067992/
