candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker

it pains me to say this, but i'm starting to think that the new Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is going to be a pale imitation of the original. i still eagerly await it's premiere, though, because johnny depp is in it. JOHNNY DEPP. the man can do no wrong in my book -- he's hot, quirky, an ex-patriot -- what's not to love?? but i also love this story and the original movie, and i fear that he was not the best choice to play willy wonka. gene wilder was just SO brilliant in the willy wonka role. there was no reaching in his performance -- he really brought the character to life. in watching the trailer it seems like johnny is just going for an over-the-top, uber-eccentric version of wonka. granted the trailer is only 30ish seconds, but i'm going to stand by my assessment until i can see the whole thing. and the teeth! what's with the teeth?? oh, you have to watch it to see what i'm talking about. sometimes i wish i weren't cursed with the obsession over details.
