Liveblogging "Willie Wonka"

Not really, though I AM enjoying it.

I wonder where Johnny Depp got the idea for his Willie Wonka characterization: a cross between a midwestern drag queen hostess and Eric Idle's "old lady" routine from "The Meaning of Life."

I've heard it said that Michael Jackson was an influence. Dunno how true it is, but there you go. i like the Eric Idle idea, tho. I could see that.

Yeah, if you threw Michael Jackson into that mix he certainly wouldn't be out of place...

I actually thought the movie got a bit annoying as it went on, but there were several wonderful lines.
