Synopsis


Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Director Tim Burton brings his unique vision and sensibility to Roald Dahl's classic children's story in this lavish screen interpretation. Willy Wonka (Johnny Depp) is the secretive and wildly imaginative man behind the world's most celebrated candy company, and while the Wonka factory is famously closed to visitors, the reclusive candy man decides to give five lucky children a chance to see the inside of his operation by placing "golden tickets" in five randomly selected chocolate bars. Charlie Bucket (Freddie Highmore), whose poor but loving family lives literally in the shadow of the Wonka factory, is lucky enough to obtain one of the tickets, and Charlie, escorted by his Grandpa Joe (David Kelly), is in for the ride of a lifetime as he tours the strange and remarkable world of Wonka with fellow winners, media-obsessed Mike Teavee (Jordan Fry), harsh and greedy Veruca Salt (Julia Winter), gluttonous Augustus Gloop (Philip Wiegratz), and ultra-competitive Violet Beauregarde (Annasophia Robb). Over the course of the day, some of the children will learn difficult lessons about themselves, and one will go on to become Wonka's new right hand. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory also stars Christopher Lee, James Fox, and Noah Taylor; the book was famously adapted to the screen before in 1971 under the title Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, with Gene Wilder as the eccentric candy tycoon. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Where the Wild Things Are
Visionary director Spike Jonze brings Maurice Sendak's beloved children's book to the big screen with the help of hipster icon Dave Eggers, who teamed with Jonze to pen the adapted screenplay. A mixture of real actors, computer animation, and live puppeteering, Where the Wild Things Are follows the adventures of a young boy named Max (Max Records) as he enters the world of the Wild Things, a race of strange and enormous creatures who gradually turn the young boy into their king. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    I purchased this movie to view during the holidays and really enjoyed it with the family and it was enjoyed by all not to mention the greatly priced offer on it too. Best Buy has the best deals and is the place where I buy all my electronics as well. Great value and quality products!

    The kids like the movie, but I'm not cool with bad behavior being encouraged. Also, Johnny Depp kind of freaks me out in Willy Wonka (I like the older, less creepy, version better). I gave it four stars because the kids approve, I'm just not impressed.

    This film is an adult movie disguised as a child's Saturday event - be certain to pay attention and "read between the lines" you adults out there !! And you get the benefit of an additional movie - - -

    Where the wild things are is a good movie and no matter how weird Jonny Depp is in Charlie and the chocolate factory, this is still a good movie.

    I had never seen either of these films before. They were interesting, but not as entertaining as I thought they might be.
