My problems with this boring movie
First off, I am fully aware that this is in no way a remake of the '71 version with Gene Wilder, and I know that this version is more true to the book, so don't bug me about the comparisons I am about to make. My only problem with this movie is that they could have at least made it remotely enjoyable. First off, this movie tried waaaaaay too hard to be funny, with little success. Of course in my theatre I heard all the stupid kids laughing(yes I know, it's a kid's movie, but I don't care) and some adults. I didn't laugh once, I snickered a few times though, but I don't watch movies to snicker. The jokes were lame and the movie lagged like no other, I was so happy when it was over. The oompa loompas were EXTREMELY annoying, but their songs were good, not the actual music but the lyrics so props to that. The '71 version at least made me laugh and it was entertaining, unlike this one which I can't say enough! The one part I remember from the early one was the moment when Charlie opened the wrapper of the golden ticket-he did it ever so slowly and when he finally saw the gold it made it such a great scene. Every single time I see that part it makes me so happy that the poor kid actually found it. In this version, he opened it so fast and so blah that I just sat there with a grim look on my face just thinking what a boring scene i just witnessed. That pretty much summed up how the whole movie was for me, very bland and not funny at all.
