    This movie looks incrediably fucked up. I'll pass on it.

    Burton puts an interested twist on everything. I like his movies.

    My GF likes the original movie, so I'll take her to see this one.

    What's with those caps on Johnny Depp....freaky looking.

    The Boston Americans (1901)
    The Boston Somersets (1902)
    The Boston Pilgrims (1903-1906)
    The Boston Red Sox (1907-present) - Proof

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.

    The SOX are in Chicago...we just allow the Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets to use the name.

    Depp will really have to bring it to compare favorably with Gene Wilder...

    I'm pass. It may be decent, though, for my boys to watch when it comes out on DVD.

    Guys, there is no way this movie is going to be aimed just at kids. Johnny Depp looks just like Marilyn Manson (who was rumored to be a candidate to play Willy Wonka). Even though the trailers may look like it's going to be a kids' movie, I can almost guarantee there will be some creepy undertones. Especially with Tim Burton directing.
    If it's BROWN, flush it DOWN.

    GO STEELERS!

    This isn't a remake. It's a straight adaptation of Roald Dahl's novel - Depp's look is straight from Quentin Blake's original illustrations. If you've ever read any Dahl you'll know how well it could suit Burton's style. Dahl has a particularly dark and twisted streak through his writing making its appeal much wider than kids. I'll be awaiting this one with interest, and Gene Wilder is unlikely to enter my mind at all.

    Agreed.

    This actually looks much more faithful to the novel than Gene Wilder version. I can't wait to see it. Never been a fan of Tim Burton though. I hated Edward Scissorhands and Nightmare before. The first Batman was disapointing to me, but Big Fish was fantastic. If he can give this film that same surreal feelinig, which it looks as though he might have, it should be good.
