Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

OK, admittedly I’m a big fan of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971, starring Gene Wilder), and I’ve definitely had Oompa Loompa songs twirling around inside my head for nearly 35 years.

But last night I went to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (starring Johnny Depp), and I was enthralled by Tim Burton’s dark spin on the classic children’s novel by Roald Dahl.  Now I have brand new Ooompa Loompa music in my head (make it STOP!!).
