this however i found a thoroughly fun film, especially the oompa-loompas and the way they got Charlie's family spot on. Liked the way they kept the search for the tickets (omitted or at least severely summarised in the original film). New backstory suitably Dahl-esque. Wondering if Wonka's written reviews of chocolates (I remember one said "good, nutty, taste") are the same as Dahl's reviews in Boy. Must check.
me, darkstream, eldritchreality caught the 7pm showing, managing to catch up with landvaettir beforehand, who is apparently off to surrey again, hopefully not to kill pheasants. sadly vjbseven and lost_species and qfyd and bx_83 didn't make that showing, but we met up in the pub afterwards and i think we achieved a consensus that the film was pretty damn good.
