    Default Which Wonka is your favorite?

    Personally I like the Dahl and Wilder versions as they seem more in the spirt of what Wonka is all about. Like how can you not like this song . I couldn't get with Depps Wonka for some reason he just didn't capative and inspire me the way the two others did.

    Wilder. By a country mile.

    Gene Wilder's portrayal gives the character a sense of charm and whimsy, whereas Johnny Depp's version just comes across as creepy and embittered -- in the Tim Burton version, the way they attempt to convey Wonka's eccentricity to the viewer just makes it all feel so contrived.

    I prefer Wilder, but ironically I'm pretty sure that Dahl said he hated the earlier version....

    Wilder, by a long shot. I read Dahl, it was a children's book without a lot of very deep characterization so there was less to be attached to in it as far as that was concerned.

    I don't really remember the book, but I liked the first movie much better than the remake. Wilder is likeable, Depp as Wonka just didn't work.
