Ok, I’m sick and tired of all the hate this movie is getting. And not just because I like it.

First of all, IT’S NOT A REMAKE OF THE 1971 FILM. IT’S JUST ANOTHER FILM ADAPTATION. It’s not trying to “replace” the old one. It’s just another director wanting to make a movie of something he liked.

Second, as an adaptation, it’s one of the BEST I’ve seen. It’s almost IDENTICAL to the original book, with a few minor changes. It’s actually one of the closest book-to-movie transitions I’ve EVER seen.

Third, I’m sick of people bashing it just because “the original is better”. Don’t get me wrong, I understand why the original is so beloved, it’s a childhood classic to most. I understand! But it’s not MEANT to compete with the “original” film! It’s supposed to be it’s own movie! Also, they had a lot of fun with it! Even if you dislike the film, you can tell they had a TON of fun making the movie and designing the scenery and characters. Plus, in my opinion, it’s not that bad! Granted, it has flaws, but everything does!

Finally, what bugs me most is when people don’t read the book and AUTOMATICALLY ASSUME that the “original” film is closer. Because it’s not. Not at ALL. The “original” 1971 film strayed SO far from the book, Roald Dahl, the CREATOR OF THE BOOK ITSELF, hated it SO much that he DEMANDED that they not make the sequel, Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator, into a movie. As for the newer one? It’s pretty dang close. They even had Roald’s wife help with the movie and make it closer to what he would have wanted. Now THAT is a good way to adapt a book into a movie!

Not bashing the old film, but I’m sick and tired of people flaming the new one.

With the face of an angel, nine year old Veruca salt can be perfectly charming - just as long as everyone agrees that the universe revolves around her. Spoiled rotten by her nut baron father, Veruca is given a Golden Ticket after her father commands his employees to open Wonka bar after Wonka bar until they find one. Unfortunately for Veruca and her mink-trimmed coat, when she tries to take on of Willy Wonka's squirrels, she ends up following the other "bad nuts" down a rather nasty garbage chute.

Ten-year old Charlie Bucket is an ordinary boy, who has never been considered faster, or stronger, or more clever then other children. He lives with his parents and four grandparents in a tiny, dilapidated house on the edge of a great town- with barley enough to eat. But...he actually is the luckiest boy in the world! When Charlie Bucket finds a Golden Ticket in a Wonka bar, he and his Grandpa Joe are invited to tour Willy Wonka's mysterious factory, and their lives change forever.

Could you do CATCF fan art? It been 50 years since the book was out in the 1960s, So I was wondering if you get to do some scenes from the book and the rooms where the four unlovable brats were send to after their endgames?

Ugh…naw thanks. JatGP is more of my Dahl fix. That and maybe the twits.
