    I wrote about how the film compared to the books. I think one problem with this adaptation is that Burton was never much of a fan of the books or other adaptations. He has basically said he did this movie because everyone expected him to. That's no way to do something so popular.

    What do you have against oompa loompas? Do you have a complex about people of different origin?

    I don't remember the oompa loompas being of different origin (and if I did that would not matter to me). I do remember them being short. I have nothing against short people as I am short myself but I just happened to prefer the oompa loompas in the 70s version of the movie. I had no idea that Burton was not fan of the books! That's too bad and might explain some of my issues with the movie. Though I thought the first 20 minutes were picturesque and executed very well! And that was the part that was similar to the original story.
