Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory ★★★ 2005 (PG)

Unlike 1971's “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory,” this is not a musical, although the Oompa Loompas still sing. And Burton does a more faithful adaptation of the 1964 book by Roald Dahl. Poor boy Charlie Bucket (Highmore) is one of five winners of a golden ticket that allows him to tour the mysterious Willy Wonka's (Depp) chocolate factory. Fans of the original may have qualms, but this one has a little more depth and heart, great visuals, and the cooperation of Dahl's widow, an exec producer. Depp is brilliantly quirky and Highmore shines. 115m/C DVD, Blu-ray Disc, UMD, HD DVD .

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
