Why does it feel so timeless?
Because you were abused as a child and likely saw this movie sometime before the traumatic event you're repressing took place
Oof, fair possibility.
I think it’s the funny songs and bright colors though, personally.
>Augustus is one month of peewee football away from being perfectly healthy
>Holy shit this is the fattest kid that could ever exist and must be drowned in a pressurized pipe
It was a different time
There wasn't a single black person in this movie
good music and sets
Because they insult a kid for being fat.
the whole movie has an otherworldly feel that you can't place it's location and date
>film in germany
>redress everything to feel like England
>have the main characters speak with American accents
I could not possibly imagine sitting down and watching this
Because of the pure imagination obviously.
crazy ass midgets
relentlessly cute and handsome shota boy
Gene Wilder and whimsy
made in the 70s, before childrens' entertainment became ESPECIALLY shrill
filmed in an old German town
Time tested themes.
>GOOD DAY SIR!
Children's entertainment used to strive to be somewhat timeless. Then the 90s happened at like pic related everything suddenly strove to be "hip" and current and now has ended up aging worse.
yup got it
This, making some sort of pop culture reference might seem cool in the moment to whoever the fuck but it honestly makes watching it down the line way shittier
Because it is timeless.
I still remember when they revealed the entirely edible candy room with the chocolate river. My child mind was blown when I saw it for the first time. Everything looked delicious even if it was all fake. The new one was good and more book-friendly but the old just has that fucking zing. Gene Wilder's Wonka was better than twink Johnny Depp's Wonka too. He felt like a real screwball but with that hidden genius of an inventor. Like hes off his rocker but still above you.
Because Gene Wilder just winged it and mogged the fuck out of the book.
>oompa loompa songs that talk about a particular moral lesson
>the German town
>Charlie Bucket going on an adventure away from his dreary home life to a almost magical factory ran by a reclusive chocolatemaker
The original screams timeless, meanwhile the remake just screams 2000s spin on the original film.
Also, I hated the oompa loompa songs from the remake. Rock music rendition of a oompa loompa song? I hated it.
>you can chew gum, but not, like, a lot
What a weird fucking parable in the middle of pretty normal shit like being a retarded glutton, being a vile spoiled bitch, being a violent couch potato know-it-all. Violet didn't even stick the gum to tables or anything.
It's like if a kid got decapitated by a giant lollipop for repeatedly making that stupid clicking noise with his tongue.
>Violet didn't even stick the gum to tables or anything.
She does in the book.
I think Violet's lesson was less about chewing gum and more about being well mannered. The blueberry transformation was a bit overkill, but Dahl's writing is weird like that.
Mike TV is the best kid, because he welcomes his "consequence" with open arms, unlike homosexual Grandpa Joe who broke the rules then whinged about "muh unfairness".
American movie featuring American actors, set in an ambiguously European setting. Gives it an otherworldly kind of feel.
