    I support everything the burtman makes, but I’m really sick of hollywood remaking movies. what can I say, give me the rat pack in Oceans 11, and hepburn in sabrina, and dick van dick in chitty chitty bang bang…

    all remakes usually do is take all the good dry humor and writing and add retarded pretty boy actors and stupid modern references. oh and lets not forget the amazing CGI effects.

    I’m sure I’ll see this movie though… I’ve got some special treats perfect for this occassion

    Well, we can hope that in this case, it’s not so much a remake as a faithful adaptation of Dahl’s book.

    I don’t care if this movie totally kicks ass, it still won’t be Willy Wonka!  Hollywood should go ahead and remake bad old movies (like Ocean’s 11, into good movies like Ocean’s 11) but stop taking really good movies from my childhood and making mediocre remakes, please!  No Gene Wilder, no multicolored Umpa Lumpas with their weird but mesmerizing rhymes and dance steps!  Wilder made a bunch of crappy movies that could have been remade into good ones, why did you have to remake one of his few good ones?  Why Tim Burton, Why?

    That’s a good point.  It might not have been much like the book, but the original Willy Wonka was great.

    I have faith that burton can make this his own beautiful creation.

    and ocean 11.1 was actually a good remake and I hope the 12 is good too.

    When you told me that Johnny Depp wasn’t playing Wonka I was very disappointed, but I should have known that you’re a dirty liar.  This is going to be so awesome.
