    It's hard to say. I definately like the "craziness" of the 2005 better. It also followed along with the book much more than the 71 version. I didn't like all the history about Wonka though. He's just weird & we should accept that about him.

    the 2005 version stuck to the book much better. And I agree with 4Mickey they didnt need that much detail about Willy's life.
    It's a Disney thing. If you understood, your only question would be "can I go?"

    1971

    The original relied more on character development than special effects. While the new one gets points for Wonka's back story, and points again for Depp's acting, Gene Wilder defines the role. :mickey:

    yes, the 2005 version was more accurate to the book, and that's why I liked 2005 version better than the 1971 version.

    FYI I heard that Mr.Dahl who wrote the screen play for the first one hated it and never wanted to see it on the big screen. I honestly like them both. I do have them both on dvd but if I had to choose I go with the new one because it follow the story and the songs if you notice are the actual words from the book.

    I almost always prefer the original of anything better. I love Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka....to be honest, Johnny Depp was rather scary in the role! And I like the original Oompa Loopas better as well!

    Haven't actually seen the new version yet, but if they stuck to the book (which is still one of my faves), the brains behind the film rocked with all due hardness. If I think about it, my biggest problem with the old movie is Charlie himself. In the book, he was an absolute sweetheart of a kid. The movie version of Charlie seemed to be only a nice kid when compared to the four monsters.

    If it were an option, I'd vote for the Family Guy episode that did a take on 'Willy Wonka and the Brewery.' I swear, I laughed 'til I cried blood when the 'Chumbawumbas' sang their song, and when the owner of the place sang "Pure Inebriation."

    Good times.

    The 1971 was better. The oompa-loopas looked so much cooler(as they werent the same guy and shrunken) and the songs were much better. Also Willy Wonka by Gene Wilder had a nicer feel to him. He was more lovable, except at the end. I do have to say that i liked the recent ones jokes. Wonka was just so weird that it became hilarous.
