Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory

Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory ★★★★

Ah, a bag of sweet childhood nostalgia. Everytime I re-watch this film I am blown away by the late, great Gene Wilder's performance. He encapsulates everything that's great about the character.

Grandpa Joe too is the right kind of savage and I love him for that. Every line that comes out of his mouth is pure golden eggs.

This film is a wonderful golden ticket. The 2005 remake has nothing on it.
