Wonka rocks!

We went to the theater yesterday and watched Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It was very fun. The Oompa-Loompa musical numbers were wildly over the top, so much so that at times I was gasping for air as I laughed. One man played all the little Oompa-Loompas, which I think made it even sillier. Johnny Depp was great as Wonka, but I'm not so sure about the "let's explain his motivations" subplot that was added. All in all, a fun and trippy movie.

Before Charlie started, there was a preview for Tim Burton's upcoming movie, Corpse Bride. It looks interesting, rather like The Nightmare Before Christmas. I'll have to keep an eye out for it.
