Charlie and The Chocolate Factory Is STILL One Of My Favorite Movies
Published on Monday, October 19, 2009 by

I remember being in first or second grade in San Diego when my father took the family to see Willy Wonka on the big screen.  This scene had me mesmerized.  I would dream about this world.  The chocolate, the candy… pure heaven for a little child.

Today I watch this scene with different eyes.  Gene Wilder is simply amazing.  I still tear up when Charlie finds the golden ticket.  I still walk out of the room when “Cheer Up Charlie” is on.  I always wonder why the owner of the candy store gives all that free candy to the other kids while hungry Charlie just gets to gaze through the window licking his lips.  And when Gene Wilder tells Charlie to remember what happened to the man who got everything he always wanted I choke up.  “Snifff….. he lived happily ever AFTER sniff sniff!!”   I am such a sap.

Do you have a favorite movie that you have watched time and time again?
