Just two short months after Sammy Sneeze, I finally got around to watching my illegal copy of Tim Burton's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, first mentioned on SUPERBLOG!! back when it was five days old and mostly written in Swedish!
I thought it was a pretty cool film, but there's no way I'd have given it five Michael Keatons, (unlike some SUPERBLOG!! contributors I know). Not sober, at least.
One thing I'd like to mention: if you think you recognize the guy who plays the Oompa-Loompas (Mister Deep Roy), it might be because he was the Tin Man in Return to Oz, which you of course immediately ran out to buy after reading about on SUPERBLOG!! this summer.
Since Sammy already laid claim to being Augustus Gloop, I guess I'll pick Veruca Salt as the character I identify most with. Like Veruca, I'm fucking spoiled, I have a band named after me, I was born in Sweden to Swedish parents, and I speak fluent Swedish. Don't believe me? Check this out:
Jag bra prata! Mig bra svenska talare! Mapa skrika malopp!
I wrote that entirely without help.
P.S. About that title... D.S.
