I love this version of charlie and the chocolate factory. It's very different in some aspects to the 1960s version, but also had its own fun elements added to make itself stand out from the other version. While I liked most including the childhood stuff, I believe this fan edit does a great job at setting out to remove the childhood parts and the one line that made no sense.
"Absolutely not" Wonka said when Charlie asked if he could bring his family.
It's dumb and it being removed improves the film by a long shot for various reasons.
Again the childhood stuff is gone, but again the edit doesn't do much else to change the film.
Despite that, the editing is top-notch and makes itself a great improvement on the source material.
However, It's the same 2005 Wonka film just improved at the end of the day.
If you hate the 2005 Wonka, you might like that they removed the childhood stuff and not much else.
If you love this film, you will love this fanedit as I did.
This was an excellent way to attempt to stay true to the book and make it less about Wonka and more about Charlie. I am glad to see the subplot eliminated and the film focus more on the book's elements. Great job!
A significant improvement over the original, and none of my family members noticed it was an edit until the final scene. This had to do with familiarity with the original, and was not a reflection on that portion of the edit, which I thought was handled excellently. A wonderful addition to the editing community and my personal collection. Thank you!
