Gene Wilder is the devilish glint in the windshield of this majestic emotional Rollercoaster that swirls in whimsy from the get-go.
I rewatch this movie every time it’s on for the classic feel it has with the filming and story.
An assault on reality that lives forever fertile in the imagination of viewers. While a remake exists, it is this that altered a generation.
Great directing and story, used to think it was scary when I was younger
An eerie yet inviting film with a story that will stay in our hearts forever
It’s fun and horrifying and stupid and I like it
A musical masterpiece, not to mention one of the best kids movies out there
A magical classic and the definitive adaptation of Roald Dahl’s book, Gene Wilder is absolutely electric as Wonka, a legendary performance
Charming and imaginative film that is a fantastic adaptation of the book. Gene Wilder is transcendent as Wonka.
Gene Wilder is brilliant. This is a true classic.
