How did the "1996 edition" differ from the "1971 edition"?

@tsfisch: no idea... maybe I shouldn't believe everything that Amazon tells me.

Oompa loompas scare the crap out of me.

I'd rather buy from Amazon than Wal Mart. Quicker shipping and better customer service.

@luvche21: I liked them both, but this is the one that I grew up with and remember best. The leading actor's performances are truly remarkable in their own right.

Oh I see you've posted a popular deal. Tell me more about how hard you looked to find a deal on a 40 year old movie.

@luvche21: No, I refuse to watch it, it's an insult to Gene Wilder, originality, and quality screenplay. I'm dead serious, and I'll probably go postal if/when they ever remake Short Circuit and The Labyrinth.

@myspaceisacult: This is still the gene wilder version not the freaky scary and pervy looking Johnny Depp

@tsfisch: The last version was not letterbox so this one is a widescreen transfer and the colors are redone and look better. Hope this helps

Another DVD "deal" that's not really a deal. The thing's cheaper at Walmart and no dealing with Amazon and antiquated scam of a shipping method.

@maciver: Thanks, I thought I totally goofed it on the title!

@myspaceisacult: I wasn't the biggest fan of the new version either. Maybe a disassociation with the original would have made it better in my mind, I thought it was kind of weird. Good thing it was only a dollar or so for Black Friday.

@luvche21: I couldnt handle the new one... I kept waiting for the to catch a predator guy to arrest johhny depp... he went way overboard on the creepy factor. There will only be one Mr Wonka- Gene Wilder cant be beat lol
