Most Unnecessary Movie RemakesAlexandr
The Top Ten
I like Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale but the movie itself, was weak - Alexandr
Seeing Kate Beckinsale is NEVER unnecessary!
The original film isn't even that old. - TheRiceKing
Terrible! Remakes are so pointless and such a waste of money. What IS the point of them? - icthruuV 1 Comment
Original looked funny and entertaining. This one looks stupid - AlexandrV 1 Comment
They didn't add anything new nor smart to the story. The main female character was very annoying in addition - Alexandr
So what? It was an unnecessary prequel! Get it!
Every once in a while comes a good remake, that happened in 1982, now Hollywood had to go remake a remake. - TheRiceKing
Prequel or sequel, who cares? This movie was awful and absolutely unnecessary!V 5 Comments
I guess they were trying to remake the original because of how old and dated it was, but who in the right mind thought about casting Vince Vaughn as Norman Bates?
When you remake Psycho with Vince Vaughn as the lead role, something has gone horribly, horribly wrong.
Not scary at all. Just silly - Alexandr
Original is better but nevertheless this one is worth to watch. And Sophia Bush is very good ( and hot! ) in this movie.V 1 Comment
Compared to original movie this one was dull - Alexandr
It's like the writers just simply came out 'we have a new idea for a remake of the original beloved classic, willy wonka and the chocolate factory'. Tim burton said 'let's put this idea in work'.
God! This movie was painful to watch! It really hurt. I this version, charlie is way too perfect and flawless. In the original he was more like a normal kid - he had emotions and feelings, while in this version, he seems colder than frozen rock and he has no personality at all. Also, his grandpa joe has no personality too. The original grandpa joe was funnier and more stubborn. The bratty kids are also badly played/re-imagined. I mean, how could someone ever top the 1971's verruca salt. In that version, she was aggressive, mean and incredibly spoiled. In the new version, she's also very spoiled but she isn't rude or aggressive in any way. Actually, there she seems quite polite and nice. THAT'S NOT WHAT SHE IS SUPPOSED TO BE! Also, the girl who plays her pretty much put no efforts in ...more
Look, I understand what you mean. But I'm really not feeling hurt because of the remake. It was bad, I know what you mean, but I have no idea why do you have to be so upset about this? I don't like the remake too, I watched just one time and I'll never watch again. If you don't like it you should just avoid it, like me.
This remake was a total disaster.
Tim Burton, what's the matter with you?! Just stop remaking things and do something original for crying out loud! I'm not a Tim Burton fan, but there are some of his movies who really impressed me like 'Batman' or 'Sweeney Todd'. But this movie was a total mistake.
I saw in a commercial, that Burton is going to do a remake of 'willy wonka and the chocolate factory'. I was all like 'god, when are they gonna stop doing those crappy remakes'. In the commercial, Burton said he didn't like the first movie and decided to do another one. How dare he?! Well, it's a good thing he didn't like the old one, because I didn't the new one. I decided to give it a chance anyway and started watching it with an open mind, maybe he really was going to do a better movie, but he didn't. In this version, charlie pretty much doesn't do anything. When he found the golden ticket he wasn't even excited. He has nothing to do in this movie. The bratty kids are also poorly ...more
Wow! There are so many butthurt people in the comment section! Is quite weird that all the people who read the book hated the 1971's version and like the 2005 one. You guys are too nostalgic. The original willy wonka managed to be entertaining for a few times, but then he became boring and his jokes weren't funny at all. I mean, he quoted from classic literature and played classical music. He also seemed t friendly and social for someone who spent 20 years in a factory. Depp's wonka was funny and dark and his jokes actually were funny.
The only thing that made this movie better was the fact that it wasn't a musical, God some musicals are just annoying.V 15 Comments
Tim Burton didn't even wanted to work on this.
Very boring if you compare to original - Alexandr
Plot doesn't make sense. the movie looks like reused clips from Jurassic park.
