    Having read the book to my children I found the movie pleasant. I wouldn’t say it is a great movie but I did enjoy it. The characters were exactly how I imagined them all those years ago.

    While I didn’t hate the film, I did find it rather difficult to avoid thinking back to the scenes which have been burnt into my brain from repeated showings of the original film. In Ireland it wasn’t Christmas unless Willy Wonka was on TV and, sadly, every year I made sure to watch it! I normally love the Tim Burton/Johnny Depp combination but here, although the film had memorable moments, it just didn’t quite work for me.
