Today I thought I would treat myself, so I brought the 1970s classic “Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory” featuring Gene Wilder on DVD. I must have seen this movie tones of times before, but I never got around to purchasing it. I am personally not a “movie musical fan” but this movie keeps me watching the whole way through without getting bored.
I previously read the original book that this movie was based on and I got the story straight away, but I always felt there was something missing and that it needed to go into better detail for me to take it in. That statement may seem weird to most people and somewhat backwards, but putting that aside the movie was creatively put together and naturally some parts were modified, in which this is to be expected as you can’t always adapt everything to the books standards.
Roald Dahl is one of my favourite authors of all time, he knew how to capture your imagination and that is one quality a lot of authors lack! Most of Roald Dahl’s books go back many years, but are loved by millions to this day and if you are new to his books then, I would suggest reading every book he wrote as it will take you on such a creative journey that you will never forget.
If you would like to learn more about Roald Dahl’s work then, I will leave all links below, along with other related links to this story and also links to where you can buy the DVD.
