Literary Movie Response Essay

964 words - 4 pages

Charlie and the Chocolate factory is a remake of the children’s classic Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, although the acting, setting, and story may seem silly at times, the movie actually have a logical message hidden beneath it all. The emotional connection, credibility, logic, purpose, and setting of the movie are extremely valid, and when you get past the childish cover up, it is really a serious movie.

The little British girl and her father have the most annoying British accents ever, but I think all British accents are annoying. Not only are their accents annoying, their teeth are crooked and disgusting. Average British people have awful teeth. The British characters have another stereotype related to being rich. The characters are snobby and greedy, just like an average rich person. With the behavior of the children, it makes me think the writer wanted to convey the seven deadly sins with the children.
Charlie and the Chocolate factory does not really use logos in my opinion. The movie is goofy and uses simple words, rarely did I hear a word I did not understand or that was...
