    Watched in Czech with the lovely lady. Two observations about this movie, which I’ve seen hundreds of times:

    1) this very well might be the most angsty, lonely, moody installment of the HP movies. well, actually, that’s Azkaban. well, actually, it’s probably Goblet. or wait, it’s definitely Half Blood Prince. Or maybe Deathly Hallows Part 1? Wait, were all these movies just really angsty all along?

    Gene Wilder brilliantly weaves a sense of enigmatic mystery with a genuine whimsy and compassion that shines through the chaos. Every time I watch this film, I'm amazed that it hasn't become a meme/shitpost movie yet. The level of pure chaotic energy and the absolutely savage deadpan insults Willy Wonka dispenses on a regular basis make it such a fun "did he just roast that child?!" movie to rewatch. Also, uh, I miss movies where the whole plot is just "this place is friggin WEIRD."
