Almost all classic movies are remade...Look at Little Women..
Not all remakes are bad, IMO...Little Women is a prime example of that.

I am going to reserve judgement of this movie until I see it.

I wanna see it. I'm not a big fan of the original so chances are I'll like the remake better

You know, I'm a great fan of Gene Wilder. I'm not too sure if Johnny can surpass what he did with his role. Although, I'm really anxious to see what Tim Burton cooks up

See, I think that alot of people are going to be thinking that this is a copy of the original movie....which was very "70s". It was stylistically placed in that point in time.

I think that this remake will have influences from our "time" more or less...(That made sense before I typed it, really...)

I won't be expecting Johnny Depp to be doing a Gene Wilder impersonation.

I think I'll reread the book before I see it, too.

Hopefully It won't have the same/or any music, to further separate it from the original.

I adore the book, and I enjoy it even more now than I did as a kid. I definitely recommend reading it! I don't think the book is that much darker than the film, it's just more sarcastic and a lot stranger...like there are squirrels shelling nuts instead of geese laying golden eggs.


I wouldn't exactly call this movie a "remake" it's just another version of the original text. I just hope it's well done, because a version that will be truer to the book would be amazing.

thank you! SARCASTIC is what I would call the book! You put it into words, what I was trying to articulate!

Don't shot me...but I thought the original was good...but never fantastic. I'll be looking forward to see how this new one pans out...

I can't wait to see this movie. I think Johnny Depp will do a fantastic job as Willy Wonka. I am a little concerned that the movie will turn out a little dark because it is going to be directed by Tim Burton. I'm also wondering if the movie is going to be more true to the book than the first movie. I've read the book and there were a few things done differently in the first movie. Despite that, I still love the original. I'm not so sure this remake will do better than the original because that one is a classic.

Tim Burton has done a ton of movies including some of the Batman movies, and that movie The Nightmare Before Christmas. He has a thing for Johnny Depp too. Johnny Depp has appeared in several Tim burton movies including Edward Scissorhands and Sleepy Hollow.

About the remake. The original is good. I probably won't go see the remake at the movies but watch it on video. It'll be hard to top the remake though even with Johnny Depp.
