obviously, my all-time favorite film is "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory"....but when people ask me "why?" i respond with WHY!?!?!?!
...i've never met a person that didn't like this film - for whatever reason..
...that is, until i went to a restaurant here in Ohio a few months back.
..i was wearing my "Wonka bar" shirt & a lady came up to me & asked "oh, you like Willy Wonka?", i replied "yes.....yes i do", with a big cookie grin on my face.
then, out of nowhere, she said "i never liked that film....it always scared me"...immediately, i mentally flash to the boat scene(which i will agree is very scary to a little child - at least back in the 70's), because if anyone says that this filmed scared them, it would have to be due to that single scene...although, i'm sure there are others.
truthfully, i gasped!
so, this film doesn't agree with everybody(what does?), but it agreed with me - & i'm quite sure the lot of you out there.
..& to think, there's been talks of a remake for the past 5 or more years now(please...oh PLEASE GOD, don't let 'em do it!!!).
...& look at the bitch NOW!
