    "I really like this adaptation probably out of all of them, not the least of which because it doesn't have the awkward DID YOU PUT YER NAME IN THE GOBLET OF FIAH???? moment, which makes it an automatic win. This one is well acted and the ending is just devastating."

    "Even though the book is one of my favorites, I was not enthralled with this version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Sadly, this version is dark and not appropriate as a family movie."

    "This is a quintessential Scorcese movie starring DeNiro as Jake LaMotta the boxer. The story is a gritty tale and the fight scenes are some of the most ultra-realistic ever filmed. You feel each punch to your mind and gut, as you do the life story."
