Willie Wonkers is a terrible actor. Worst movie of the year.

User review rating: 5 February 19, 2024

Loved it all!

User review rating: 5 February 19, 2024

It's a musical. It's a great family movie. I really enjoy it.

User review rating: 1 February 18, 2024

Looks like Chalamet is sitting on the toilet in that photo. Terrible choice to play Wonka.

User review rating: 5 February 13, 2024

I think it's worth seeing in the movies. This isn't the old story but it's a pre-quell. Visually stunning, funny and clever. A great flick.

User review rating: 5 February 11, 2024

I can't believe the bad reviews. This was so entertaining. I loved it and my grandkids loved it. Timmy Chalamet was captivating. This one rivals Gene Wilder and that is saying a lot to me. He sure fit the part.

This movie is really not good.

User review rating: 1 February 01, 2024

Awful movie. Skip this one, you will hate it.

User review rating: 1 January 31, 2024

Why do we have to put up with these terrible movies they make. This movie is painful to get through.

User review rating: 1 January 31, 2024

I don't understand how people like this movie. Terrible singing and Chalamet fails. Just awful.

User review rating: 5 January 30, 2024

2nd time was even better than the 1st time! Cute, funny, sad, goofy, hopeful, and very entertaining. I don't like musicals in general, but this was captivating! The lead is perfect as a young Gene Wilder!

User review rating: 1 January 28, 2024

The best part was when it was over.

User review rating: 4 January 28, 2024

I don't know what people are complaining about. Yes, there was music. It's a musical. The lead actor did a fantastic job. The bad guys were plentiful and despicable. There were emotional moments. It was less weird than other Willy Wonka movies (which I appreciated). It isn't going to perfectly please everyone, but it's a great family movie; my nine year old son and I both enjoyed it.

What a failure of a movie. Good for insomniacs.

User review rating: 2 January 20, 2024

All the singing and dancing in this movie is just too much. Watching this at times was like someone dragging their nails across a blackboard.

User review rating: 1 January 20, 2024

This movie is so stupid. I can't understand why anyone loves this movie. The music is awful, nothing memorable. I don't know how Chalamet has a career.

User review rating: 1 January 19, 2024

Timmy Chalamet has ruined Willy Wonka.

User review rating: 1 January 19, 2024

Really bad

User review rating: 1 January 15, 2024

Don't see it on a full stomach...

User review rating: 5 January 12, 2024

i enjoyed a lot about this movie, it had a lot of parallels with Matilda the Musical which I found interesting, some of the set design was really impressive and beautiful. I have seen some complaints that he was too sincire and cheery, but this is a prequel, he didnt become the weird Gene Wilder character that we love until later in life when he shut people out for years. This was really enjoyable and fun if you go into it wanting to have fun instead of knit picking every reason its not the same as the first 2

This is one of the very few movies available to watch on the big screen that does not have some sort of political agenda attached to it. You can just go and watch it with your family and it’s not offensive to religious people it isn’t pushing certain ideas on innocent young children that they don’t need to be exposed to it’s just a wholesome fun story. You can watch this movie even if you’ve never read the books or seen the other movies

User review rating: 5 January 09, 2024

I thought this movie was a great "feel good" show. The casting was good as was the music. I've seen it twice and will watch it again once it is shown on tv.

User review rating: 5 January 08, 2024

I saw this twice and I never see movies twice. It was so well done. Good to see on the Big Screen. Loved the lead. Little Green Hugh Grant was great too.

User review rating: 5 January 06, 2024

Just saw Wonka for the 2nd time, with hubby. I loved it even more the 2nd time, especially after watching some interviews with the cast. I don't care much for musicals, but this movie was very charming, endearing, clever, touching, and I loved the music and dancing. Chalumet is adorable and makes an excellent young whimsical Wonka, full of hopes and dreams and ingenuity. Noodle and Lofty were awesome too. Nothing woke in this film. I could definitely see this again! (btw, Hugh Grant, not Laurie - Dr. House ;)

User review rating: 5 January 05, 2024

It was cute

User review rating: 5 January 05, 2024

Finally, a Wonka character that isn't duplicitously creepy. Those complaining that the other movies featuring Wonka were better obviously have some deep-seated hatred for decency among people and for seeing justice prevail against the evil over-advantaged. If you love magic, wit, and wonder and you root for the under-dog because it's the right thing to do, this movie is for you. Hugh Laurie stole every scene he was in, but the cast is formidably rich on its own. Visceral, comical and beyond-the-archetype characters along with a fun score move this storyline along handily. The special effects were top-notch, but the fact that the "anti-woke" crowd (whatever "woke" is supposed to mean) doesn't like this makes me want to go see it ten times over as it is truly a progressive and timely Wonka. Dahl was on the cusp of progressivism appropriate for his day, and he utilized his talent to out the disgusting nature of people, but this treatment clearly gives the viewer even more hope that the just and creative can thrive in the face of great disadvantage. We need a film like this considering what passes for cultural standards today. Go see it.

Loved this movie for the song, dance and fantasy of it all !! Great characters and lots of fun!!

User review rating: 4 January 04, 2024

I Liked this Better Then the Tim Burton one the Original I think in the 70’s was good I really Enjoyed I’m happy this one got a Different director I liked the music. I did Recognize 2 Actors. It was very worth while

User review rating: 4 January 02, 2024

I liked it better than older Wonka movies that are outdated now. Willy is young, fun, mischievous and not too quirky. Noodle was great too.

User review rating: 5 January 02, 2024

Visuals just wonderful to see! We love the storyline, must see with or without children 😊?? I will be seeing it again with my sister very soon

User review rating: 4 January 01, 2024

It had slow parts but overall it’s worth seeing

User review rating: 5 December 30, 2023

Storyline was entertaining. The musical scenes were well done.

User review rating: 3 December 30, 2023

It was okay, but not as good as the other Wonka movies. Not sure I would recommend it unless you're a huge fan of the character.

User review rating: 5 December 30, 2023

Great storyline and excellent acting by Chalamet. Not the greatest singer, but he does not need to be. I would definitely go and see it again. I had low expectations after seeing the version with Depp. This is so much better.

User review rating: 1 December 28, 2023

They destroyed Willy Wonka. This is what happens when the woke take over the movie industry.

User review rating: 5 December 28, 2023

Great movie, and very funny!!!!!!!!!

User review rating: 5 December 26, 2023

incredibly entertaining and all-star cast

User review rating: 3 December 26, 2023

This turned out to be a shockingly entertaining family flick with a lot of heart and classic moral measure. The setting is grounded so far outside of reality and the orgional, that it doesn't fall into the prequel trap because it stands as it's own story. The creativity and colors are vivid. The messages are inspiring and encourage kids to standup for themselves (a message of questionable philosophical value in these days). The biggest faults lie in the lead man, who bascally held this movie back with his stale acting, musical ineptitude, and complete lack of dancing skills. The supporting cast all outshined the lead!!! The musical writing was also a bit lackluster, but fine by 2023 standards. Overall a good family movie that could have been great if it weren't for one poor casting call.

My child gave it a 6 out of 10 and I happen to agree with that rating. Just not enough, felt blend and I wish it was more colourful, positive, and funnier.
