If You Want to View Paradise…

Come with me and you’ll be
In a world of pure imagination
Take a look and you’ll see
Into your imagination
We’ll begin with a spin
Trav’ling in the world of my creation
What we’ll see will defy
Explanation
If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it…
Anything you want to, do it…
Want to change the world, there’s nothing to it
There is no life I know
To compare with pure imagination
Living there, you’ll be free
If you truly wish to be…
There is no life I know
To compare with pure imagination
Living there, you’ll be free
If you truly wish to be

— “Pure Imagination” from the soundtrack to Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971), lyrics & music by Anthony Newley

Wyatt said the new Charlie and the Chocolate Factory wasn’t good at all. Have you seen it?

I saw it…I did not care for it, but RM enjoyed it. The Oompa Loompas were the worst…

Yeah, I saw Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with Johnny Depp. I was disappointed with it. Gene Wilder beats it hands down

I’ve seen them both multiple times. My favorite is the older version although Johnny Depps performance was very good.
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory focused mostly on Charlie.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory focused on Willy.
All Oompa Loompa’s are cool.
