Quoted from Aurich:

I honestly think it's aged badly. It's simply not a good looking film anymore, the sets look low budget and corny now, and the acting that isn't Gene Wilder chewing the scenery is stagey and over exaggerated. If you haven't seen it in a while and just remember the memes and "I said good day sir!" you can watch this scene:

and see if you agree. If you love the movie I'm not trying to be a jerk, just honest about what it looks like. It's really dated. I love Roald Dahl's books, I think it was a fun movie for the time (the Tim Burton remake is a looker but a shitty film, the original might not hold up that well but it's still better). But killer pinball theme? The hype is out of control.
It's already a slot machine, it's an available license, and JJP took it. Probably hoping the candy rainbows would be another WOZ since that one still sells. The hype and frothing over some rumors is peak Pinside though.

This scene was magical when I was a kid watching this. I didn’t care about the special effects, set design and acting. I thought it was the coolest, iconic scene in the movie. The way Wonka (Gene Wilder) stalled for them to allow them to eat the candy was done so well. The song is definitely perfect for the scene. Now, think if this magical moment can be felt experiencing this JJP pinball machine during the reveal. I want to experience that magic under glass that was evident with the 90s machines. Story, mechs, cool things that we have never seen thr ball do before. That is what I am looking forward to. Totally agree the hype train is full steam ahead, but we may not be disappointed. We’ll see on Friday. I hope we can all say “You won! You did it!” for JJP.

Of course you have a right to your own opinion. Now let’s hope the game is super fun to play and we all win!

Thanks Aurich. I hope it is too.

Even though we have to wait one more day...please let’s make sure no one leaks photos or anything else before the reveal. Let’s give JJP the spotlight without spoiling it! But the hype thermometer is blowing it’s top like Augustus Gloop up the chocolate river pipe.
