Now I've seen it! Lots of squirrels in it! Without the squirrels it would have got four Keatons but because of all the squirrels Superblog!! gives Charlie and the chocolate factory five Keatons out of five.
The Michael Jackson pallor. The unnaturally white teeth. The smile stretched with insincerity. Johnny Depp's deliciously demented take on Willy Wonka, the candy man of Roald Dahl's book, demands to be seen. Director Tim Burton surrounds Depp with miraculous visuals of spun sugar and creeping menace. Their missionary lunacy is a treat for twisted children of all ages.
For your information I'd like to mention that the character that I identify myself most with is little Augustus. I eat a lot of chocolate and I have a creepy accent. I'm not very fat though.
