Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Recommended Posts

i knew this one was gonna be more like the original book. so there is really no reason to compare the two.i just count them as 2 diff flicks.

From an article I read in a local paper, Tim Burton said that it isn't meant to be a remake, but a "re-imagined" version of the book itsself.

 

I gave my son the choice of either seeing this movie, or Fantastic Four. He of course chose F4. I'll probably check this out once it hits DVD, though.

Isn't a remake like a sequel in the sense that it's an idea that's already proven itself as successful, and thus less of a risk for the studio?

 

Originality out the window does blow but :/

wait wait wait

 

My understanding of the movie is this. The original one was called WILLY WONKA and the chocolate factory, and Willy Wonka passed the factory onto CHARLIE, So the new one is called CHARLIE and the chocolate factory. So doesnt that mean its about CHARLIE passing the factory on because now he is too old or whatever?

 

So it was a sequel and not a remake right? Or am i wrong? because i would get kinda irritated when people said things like, The remake is going to blow, when I thought it wasnt a remake at all.
