Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

[Amazon Link] [4.0 stars] [IMDb Link]

This is a completely enjoyable movie. Tim Burton is a wizard. David Kelly, who plays Grandpa Joe, deserves an Oscar.

And Helena Bonham Carter has never looked worse. Not even in Fight Club.

I'm not sure why people (including the increasingly doddering Roger Ebert) were saying that Johnny Depp was imitating Michael Jackson; I thought I caught a real strong and obvious flavor of the late Mr. Fred Rogers in Depp's performance.
