Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Tim Burton and Johnny Depp combine to make another fantastic movie. I have to admit I didn't expect too much going in. I was overly pumped for the last Tim Burton Movie; Big Fish which was good but not a good as I hoped it would be.

I did enjoyed Charlie and The Chocolate Factory from start to finish. As usual with any Tim Burton movie it's the attention to the details that push the movie to the next level. Depp's performance is creepy but not over the top. The Umpa Lumpa's are pulled off without seeming cheesy or knockoffs of the originals.

UPDATE
Despite the obvious physical appearance Depp insists Willy Wonka is not based on Michael Jackson [LINK]
