This movie made me feel nostalgic and like a kid again even if the first time I watched it was when I was 16. Awesome movie.

Neither, Tim Burton movies suck, and the original Willy Wonka is just aweful

I'm late to the party, but I enjoyed this one. Gene Wilder was great.

Agreed. Perhaps it would've been even higher on my chart had I watched it younger.
