I would have sold that Golden Ticket for the 500 bucks. I love Tim Burton, but this isn’t one of his better movies. Johnny Depp is just a little too strange in this remake. Depp seems like he’s emulating Michael Jackson (in his later creepier years) in this role. The visuals are always stunning when you deal with Tim Burton, so that’s a plus. The Oompa Loompa’s were funny but the songs weren’t nearly as catchy as the original. Freddie Highmore was a super adorable Charlie. Watch this only if you love Burton.
