Did anyone see it yet? I tagged along with my friend's theatre camp, even though I wasn't technically allowed to. Apparently, it was a private screening for her camp. Luckily no one noticed. And I bought a ticket anyway.

I LOVED it! Johnny Depp was so creepy!

I saw it tonight. The Oompa-Loopas are really funny. Johnny Depp is super weird, but it's Johnny Depp and Tim Burton..it'd be disappointing if he wasn't, right? I give it "thumbs up!"

I'm seeing it tomorrow, even though it'll probably be insane at the theater!

AWESOME!!! I SIMPLY LOVED THIS MOVIE
really so funny with the little guy, I love how tim burton did not try to re-make but simply re-create a version in his own taste.
It was so good, we just went and got the soundtrack right after the movie, that was a first!
and I love the preview to Barnyard...that movie looks to be a classic.

I do envy you who have already seen this movie. I'm impatient to see it.

It looks too weird, plus I'm not very fond of Tim Burton movies. They're just too Hollywood.

I saw it and loved it! BUT, I can see where some people won't like it. Anyhow, I'll be sure to own the DVD. :D

I just saw it last night and I loved it! My mom couldn't believe the Oompa Loompas were just one person. Johnny Depp was perfect for the role...very creepy with even creepier hair!

I just finished watching it right now!
It's not a bad movie.
It's a lot like Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Same character names, different people.
Willie Wonka is still the one that owns the factory.
This time, there are flash backs about Willie's child hood. The Oompa-Loopas are smaller and they sing differently.
It was a nice ending though.

I just came back from seeing it, and I loved it!

The Oompa Loompa songs were amazing - I am definitely buying the soundtrack. The whole thing was actually very funny, and well done. Really cool.

Same here. I must be one of a handful of people who isn't interested whatsoever in seeing this. Depp just seems creepy and the trailer has him delivering boring and silly one-liners ("You're creepy," etc.), and that sort of thing really turns me off of a movie.

Then again, I wasn't the biggest fan of the original; I just don't see why they need to remake it. Can't they come up with, oh I don't know, something on their own?

The book is one of my all-time favourites, so I would't want to see the film which doubtless wouldn't do my imagination of how the book looked justice! ;-)

I bought a ticket to go see CATCF at the Cineplex Odeon theatre downtown tomorrow, for the matinee performance.

Will let you guys know what I think of it after I've seen it!

I'm going with my friend to see it tomorrow, too!


Even though I've never been a big fan of the orignal, but I wanna see if it's really as great as most people are saying it is.
