Wonkadotcom is an unofficial fan page that has games, MP3s, Links, Movie Quotes (and the famous literature they came from), Pictures, Lyrics a dicussion board and other great stuff from the hit cult movie, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Also has information and news about the upcoming remake entitled, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, starring Johnny Depp.
I hope it lasts. As I eagerly await the release of the new Charlie and the Chocolate Factory movie, I decided to pull out my Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory DVD just to remember wonderfully crazy movie it was. Some of my favorite bits:
- Gene Wilder's wacky and slightly evil overall performance.
- The cool tumble he does when he greets the winners at the gate of the Chocolate Factory.
- The long "Terms of Service" that everyone has to read before going in
- The oompa loompahs
- The plethora of literary and cultural allusions sprinkled throughout the film
- And my personal favorite...the boat song!
There's no earthly way of knowing
Which direction we are going.
There's no knowing where we're rowing
Or which way the river's flowing.
Is it raining?
Is it snowing?
Is a hurricane a blowing?
Not a speck of light is showing
so the danger must be growing.
Are the fires of hell a glowing?
Is the grisly reaper mowing?
Yes! The danger must be growing
For the rowers keep on rowing.
And they're certainly not showing
any signs that they are slowing!
