Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

This trailer looks great one of my ten fav films is coming back! I just watched WWATCF the other night it just gets better and better.

Although as an adult I have to wonder what kind of drugs those folks were taking when they made it. The video montage in the tunnel with the chicken getting its head cut off is pretty insane (not to mention the dialogue!). Then again, the guy who wrote the screenplay for Omen wrote the screenplay for Wonkaexplains a lot!

You know that Peter Ostrum’s only role was as Charlie right? His parents took him out of acting after that one amazing performance and now he is a vet in upstate New York. I wonder if he thinks about what could have been? I mean, he could have been the next Leonardoor Gary Coleman. Maybe his parents did the right thing.

Tim Burton is a great choice, however, I would still like to have seen the Martin Scorsese version.

Anyway, back to work I just found the lyrics to Pure Imagination

Willy Wonka:
[Spoken]
Hold your breath
Make a wish
Count to three

[Sung]
Come with me
And you’ll be
In a world of
Pure imagination
Take a look
And you’ll see
Into your imagination

We’ll begin
With a spin
Traveling in
The world of my creation
What we’ll see
Will defy
Explanation

If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it
Anything you want to, do it
Wanta change the world?
There’s nothing
To it

There is no
Life I know
To compare with
Pure imagination
Living there
You’ll be free
If you truly wish to be

If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it
Anything you want to, do it
Wanta change the world?
There’s nothing
To it

There is no
Life I know
To compare with
Pure imagination
Living there
You’ll be free
If you truly
Wish to be
