This movie looks so much better than the one with Johnny Depp.

Chalamet's delivery is so low-energy and all the gloss on his lips is distracting.

Hugh Grant is great , but he seems on a lag? Are they still rendering the CG or is this it? Just speed up the movements by 0.1x and it'll look more natural.

Ok, I’m in.

True, in the clip at r1, the 3 other character actors do the heavy lifting, I’m curious to see if that up to now elusive spark of charisma from Chalamet that seems to be emerging is the real deal.

Or not.

Poor Hugh Grant in pain looks like he'd rather be anywhere else.

I'm not usually a fan of CGI and Special Effects, but in this movie it really works.

The effects give the movie a real sense of fantasy and wonder on a grand scale.

I love it.

show us the Wonka cock, Timmay.

Will Poulter or Paul Dano would have been perfect and have the chops and credibility to lead huge budget film IMO

“Funny Little Man”? Yeah, that was my first impression too…

R11: Jeremy Allen White would've been a perfect choice too.

I like Chalamet but his performances in anything period or fantasy always seem anachronistic.

He can’t help but come off as a Gen Z bro.

How does it make sense that he has developed a chocolate that makes people fly, if in the original (which takes place years later) he is only just starting to develop fizzy lifting drinks?

I'm assuming that they've "reimagined" Willy's history with this movie, R14.

Kind of like they do with every other popular franchise.

As long as the people who own the rights to Willy Wonka consent to the story change, then it's okay for them to change his history.

This is the perfect holiday movie.

Looks terrible. Made for slow children.

If you think that Paul Dano or Will Poulter are more credible as leading men in a big budget production, your hatred for Chalamet has driven you insane. Paul Dano is an oddball character actor who was meant to lead indie movies, and Will Poulter is the perpetual sidekick. They're both good actors, but come on.

What a weird piece of chocolate Wonka makes for the Black girl, with the trademark "Elvis" lightning bolt.

I think Timothee will just seem like Timothee in some SNL skit.

But then, the original never interested me enough to watch it, so there's that.

I will say that, reading some quotes (I forget from which Wonka movie), it is a film ostensibly for kids but with sly double-entendres and other adult jokes embedded.

Kylie’s girlfriend just might win a Best Actor Oscar.

by Anonymousreply 20November 16, 2023 12:19 AM

Who is Kylie's girlfriend?

And who is Kylie?

Whether it has legs is going to depend on word of mouth and whether or not the kids are that whiny and desperate enough to see it again. If kids are the audience because I have no idea from the trailer. I could see it on opening weekend performing within expectations but then dropping in the subsequent weeks as it gets lost in the shuffle with all the other holiday and family films.

R20, OSCAR? Are you out of your MIND?!

Do the names Cillian Murphy, Leonardo Di Caprio, or Adam Driver ring any bells with you?!

by Anonymousreply 23November 19, 2023 1:01 AM

Well people are throwing out that moronic KEN character from that moronic BARBIE movie, as a Best Actor nominee, so if Ryan Gosling can get a nomination, then Timmy deserves one even more so.

The Bidens are holding a screening of it today in Virginia for military service members and their families.

Wow, how lucky for them R25.

I wish I could go too!
