Craving for Chocolate
Last night, Leo and I decided to watch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at Market! Market! I’ve been wanting to see the movie since I chanced upon its trailer. I’m not so fond of Johnny Depp but I wanted to see the chocolate lake and the chocolate falls. I think everybody still has that childhood fantasy of drinking from a chocolate fountain or taking a bite out of the ginger house…Yum! Gee, I suddenly miss childhood.
Anyways, I can’t dig the production numbers of the oompa loompas. They are the little people (read: some guy who is lucky enough to be digitally cloned for a full-length movie) running Mr. Wonka’s chocolate factory. They’re supposed to be cute but they scare me, I don’t like them one bit, sorry. I love little Charlie Bucket though, the kid can act. Apart from Charlie's and his grandpa's acting, the whole movie was bland to me, even with all the chocolate around. I'm not even recommending the movie to my nephews.
