Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory

 (1971)

Screenshots from another edition of Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory Blu-ray

The story of Charlie Bucket, a little boy with no money and a good heart, who dreams wistfully of being able to buy the candy that other children enjoy. Charlie enters into a magical world when he wins one of five "Golden Tickets" to visit the mysterious chocolate factory owned by the eccentric Willy Wonka and run by his capable crew of Oompa-Loompas. Once behind the gates, a cast of characters join Charlie and Grandpa Joe on a journey to discover that a kind heart is a far finer possession than a sweet tooth.

Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5


From Jeffrey Kauffman's 2009 review: There's no getting around it, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory has always been a spectacularly ugly film. It was when it was originally released, something that has continued unabated in its successively "upgraded" home video releases. Full of garish colors, with rather odd looking Technicolor (reds verging on oranges a lot of the time), and an almost videotaped look to what may have been very cheap film stock considering the film's rather paltry budget, my sense is there has never been a lot to work with in Willy's source elements. This new Blu-ray release, encoded via VC-1, does offer some spectacular sharpness, a sharpness that is (no pun intended) a two edged sword. The superior clarity makes the weird patterned black and white room Willy first leads his charges into on their tour of the chocolate factory superbly detailed for the first time, for example, with no hint of moire patterns or aliasing. On the other hand some of the opticals look pretty shoddy, notably the close up of Mrs. Teevee behind her newly shrunk son, as well as the closing green screen shots of Willy's magical elevator (the right side of the elevator virtually disappears in the final shot of it floating into the sky). Color is as odd as it has always looked in this film, with flesh tones all over the map (and that's not including the Oompa Loompas), but saturation is quite pleasing in this transfer. This is certainly the best Willy Wonka has ever looked in any home video format, but it's still not very good. A cheap looking film somehow only looks cheaper in 1080p, sadly.

From Jeffrey Kauffman's 2009 review: I make no bones about loving Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley's song score for Willy Wonka. Who could have foreseen Sammy Davis would have a completely unexpected Top 10 hit with "Candy Man" at a time when his career was pretty much Vegas camp? The rest of the score is similarly imaginative and melodic, and it's therefore a shame that the Dolby True HD 5.1 mix reveals some damage in the mid to low range which is especially egregious in the sung moments. You'll hear something akin to low level distortion in these frequencies, more obvious in "Candy Man" than "Pure Imagination," for example, but noticeable nonetheless throughout the sung segments. I almost wonder if the vocal stems were archived separately from the orchestral, because the orchestral music per se sounds excellent, with the True HD track revealing lots of color I hadn't heard before in Walter Scharf's fun orchestrations. Fun little things like the glockenspiel in the opening credits sequence pop now with a clarity that they simply didn't have in previous home video incarnations. The rest of the 5.1 mix has several fun immersive moments, mostly in the over the top sound effects that accompany Willy's crazy contraptions. Directionality in dialogue is not especially overwhelming, but is subtly present. If you're in the mood for some unusual fun, toggle through the foreign language soundtracks (and there are several). I was surprised to hear that some of them kept the original English language singing, but others had the songs in their respective languages.
