Charlie and the Chocolate Factory reviewed

I took the kiddoes to go see this movie this weekend. I did so under slight protest, the trailers really creeped me out, but the kids insisted, and having fond memories of the original Gene Wilder version, I agreed. Alas, my suspicions were confirmed. This movie is just flippin CREEPY. Michael Jackson could have played the part of Willy Wonka and Joe Jackson the part of his dad, and I don't think anybody would have noticed much of a difference. Tim Burton is one sick b@stard. His next movie? Its going to be about a guy who inadvertently marries a CORPSE! This guy has no business making kids movies in my opinion. He seems facinated with Gothic images and Death. My kid is 4 years old for chrissake, she still thinks that sleeping and being dead are kinda the same thing. Death is REALLY not a good subject for kids as far as I'm concerned. My advice, AVOID this movie if you have impressionable kids.

Johnny Depp in normal attire is just plain creepy. Johnny Depp dressed up as Willie Wonka is skin-crawling creepy.

I think the only movie I've taken the kids to was Madagascar.
