Since how many years ago do we knwo this game is coming?

#35 10 days ago

Just checked if it's really not just me,... it isn't. Seems to be the whole Country...

You can't buy Willy Wonka new on DVD (but it exists at least) and it isn't available at all on BluRay, that's how popular the movie is around here.

And no, I'm not poo-pooing over the game. Looking Forward to it, only not as much as most else here.

But yeah, if I can I stay up till 2Am to watch the reveal.

That’s not just where you are. Can’t buy it on dvd or Blu-ray here either. Can only buy a digital download.

I just watched the film yesterday for first time in forever. Was surprised how lightweight the film is. Not bad but not the greatest. It’s ~90 minutes and Wonka is contained to the second half. Basically it’s something like Wizard of Oz if the opening sequence of Wizard took up half the movie and then stepping into Oz = stepping into Chocolate Factory.

I mean lightweight is compared to Oz it’s more just a few choice sound bites. Gene Wilder was awesome and Varuka Salt and the other kids were ok/annoying. I’ll be interested to see how they make the game. Sure is a great few callous. Gene Wilder/Wonka are something of pure magic like Depp was as Jack Sparrow in first Potc movie.

Without a doubt Wonka / Gene Wilder is worth a watch and Varuka Salt but the overall movie is not the best.

I don’t want to come off too hard on the film but it’s something of a PotC affair.

The movie is ok but it’s remembered and loved because of Gene Wilder. There have probably been hundreds or thousands of films like this (kiddie movies) over the last 50 years but only a very few are remembered with as much reverence and not really was the movie that great but Gene Wilder was just what Sean Penn was to Fast Times or Matthew Broderick was to Ferris Beuiler’s day off.

Gene Wilder was a bit upset about the movie remake.

I hope that the game stays true to the original.

All this Wonka talk makes me really miss Gene Wilder. Dude was a legend.

I watched it free on the Roku Channel a few nights ago. Yeah commercials, but it was just on in the background while I was clicking F5 on all the Wonka threads.

Does the wonkapation set some sort of pinside posting record? I'm also F5'in it and there's always some new post. I can't get enough. What the @#&(% am I going to do after the release? =)

#50 10 days ago

LOL - I hope you don't get too many down votes by the 'can't take a joke' crowd.
