Charlie & Choc. Factory

I went and saw that this afternoon. It was better than I expected. I really enjoyed it! Danny Elfman is a musical genius. Although I did have a hard time understanding lyrics to the songs that the little oompa loompas sang. I am somewhat unsure about the end of the movie. It veered off from what I remember of the book quite a bit. I know the book ends with them in the great glass elevator, which leads to book 2 Charlie & the Great Glass Elevator. I remember not liking that one at all. Johnny Depp is also a genius, but as one of the articles I read pointed out, there was definitely a Michael Jackson vibe to him. Coworker said that the character reminds her a bit of me. I don't know if I am okay with that or not. :) Mostly, she said, in the way I still get excited about silly things and the way I sometimes just say the things that pop into my head.

I almost went to see "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" last night, and then I didn't.

Neat story, eh?

(Mine, not the movie's.)

Nevermind. I've been in the office too long already today.

Your company would've been preferred to the company that didn't show up. Which meant I watched it alone and fumed for the first 10 - 15 min before I gave it up.

That sucks. :(

And yet, sadly, not shocking. Once I got over misguided feelings of guilt for actually going into the theater after waiting 20 minutes instead of waiting indefinitely I enjoyed the film. This may be one I purchase.
