Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

I somehow managed to see the wonderfully twisted original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory twice this week -- once in a 2nd grade class and once on HBO -- and really enjoyed it. Gene Wilder is so perfectly off in that movie that he cracks me up. "Oh, no, please stop." Anyway, Tim Burton looks like he will be just as brillianly fucked-up as ever in the remake (or readaptation of the Roald Dahl book, more accurately). I'm glad he's not going for a carbon-copy, either.
