Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

 (2005)

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

An eccentric chocolatier, Willy Wonka, long isolated from his own family, Wonka launches a worldwide contest to select an heir to his candy empire. Five lucky children, including Charlie, a good-hearted boy from a poor family who lives in the shadow of Wonka's extraordinary factory, draw golden tickets from Wonka chocolate bars and win a guided tour of the legendary candy-making facility that no outsider has seen in 15 years. Dazzled by one amazing sight after another, Charlie is drawn into Wonka's fantastic world in this astonishing and enduring story.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The VC-1 encoded image (1.78:1 aspect ratio) presentation brings about some mild confusion. It's important to understand the picture's soft look and artificial touches, which leave many of the younger characters and Wonka himself with a decidedly smooth appearance, looking at times like a DNR botch job. The deliberate "waxiness" can be deceiving. Details are acceptable throughout the feature, with terrific depth to the image, also offering great goopy particulars on the candy encounters. Human textures also register adequately, at least those outside of the cartoony airbrushed look, with reactions easily read, along with differences in age (there's wonderful facial character with the older actors) and make-up intensity. The visual effects also sustain their impact, with fine hair detail on the squirrels, along with subtle design changes within the team of Oompa-Loompas. Skintones are accelerated and varied, but feel appropriate. Clarity is good, offering a full sense of the image, with colors holding strongly, turning explosive during the factory visit, with all sorts of bold hues selling the intensity of the fantasy and the sweets superbly, leading with striking reds and purples. There doesn't appear to be any radical reduction applied to the image, with Burton's usual visual mischief more detectable on Blu-ray.


Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The 5.1 DolbyTrueHD sound mix carries the film's heavy fantasy workload quite well, starting with a natural, full feel for dialogue exchanges, which keep primarily frontal, opening up for group encounters, also gifted a nice echoed quality once inside various areas of the factory. Accents and verbal comedy are solid, without distortion. Directional activity is exceptional, from the chocolate-making robotics of opening titles to the frantic antics inside the factory rooms, offering a careful handle on supporting character movement and background bustle. Atmospherics are generous, with wintry exteriors supplying crunch and chill, while Oompa-Loompa interaction is offered some faint vigor while the tour commences. Speaking of the creatures, their musical numbers are the star of the show, widening the soundscape with a blast of crisp instruments and odd, but direct vocals, also triggering considerable low-end. The soundtrack sounds big, while scoring is more subdued, holding steady in the surrounds until directed to accentuate the moment.
