Is Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory a children’s movie or a creepy movie?

Willy Wonka is about a boy from a poor family who suddenly gets the chance to go on a trip of a lifetime to a wondrous chocolate factory - sounds like a delightful children’s film. Until you start watching and notice some odd choices were made. Gene Wilder is just plain unsettling at times, and the Oompa Loompas sing haunting ballads at the end of each child’s arc (which usually ends in pain). Do you think this 1971 movie is still kid-friendly, or is it too dark for children?

You’ve been put in charge of recasting The Flash for James Gunn’s DCU. Who do you choose?

You just so happen to win a once in a lifetime contest that grants you the power to choose any Hollywood actor (or actress) to fill the shoes of a soon to be premiering hero within James Gunn’s new DCU. Across the table from the new co-CEO of DC Studios, Gunn reveals to you that he’s planning to revitalize The Flash for his new comic book cinematic universe. He confides in you that while you are able to pick anybody, fan favorite actor Grant Gustin is too busy with the theater world at the moment to be brought in. If this decision somehow fell into my lap, I would want the role to go to Joe Keery. As Steve Harrington in Stranger Things, Keery shows he can balance a strong-willed personality with an emotional side. Plus, his transformation for season five of Fargo is much slicker and well-toned which could be well suited for a man who runs all the time. Who would you pick?

Are you a fan of slow-burn horror?

I used to be a big fan of mainstream horror releases, such as the Insidious franchise, but when I saw Insidious: The Red Door in theaters last year, I walked out of the theater extremely disappointed. I think I gravitate toward slow-burn horror now more than ever (even if it's still a "mainstream" release), and there are so many great films in the subgenre. I'm a massive fan of Ari Aster, and if you include Midsommar and Hereditary as "slow-burn" horror, then those are some of my favorites (though Beau is Afraid is my favorite project from the filmmaker). I also love The Witch and The Lighthouse from Robert Eggers, along with The Babadook and The Wicker Man (1973). I've heard good things about The Blackcoat's Daughter and I am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House from Oz Perkins, which may be a good watch before Longlegs. What is your favorite slow-burn horror film?

What movie franchises can you just not get into no matter how you try?

For the life of me, I just cannot finish the second Pirates of the Caribbean movie and won’t go any further into the franchise because of it. Compared to Curse of the Black Pearl, Dead Man’s Chest quickly paces itself at the rate of a snail and I have switched it off - not once, but twice. Another franchise that I just don’t find myself attracted to is The Fast and the Furious. The first one just doesn’t sit right with me in regard to the LAPD. That could have been a great reveal, but it’s told to the audience right away. Picky, I know. I’ve tried to watch the movie three times now in the span of three years or so and just cannot understand the plot choice. I really want to know - what are some franchises that you really tried to get into but can’t?

Which Universal Classic Monster deserves a modern-day reboot?

Frankenstein. The Mummy. The Wolf Man. The Creature from the Black Lagoon. All of these names are pop culture, horror-riffic icons from the 1930s to the 1950s that have unfortunately fallen to the wayside. Universal Pictures’ planned Dark Universe didn’t do the monsters any favors in the long run and spin-off titles like 2015’s Victor Frankenstein (told from the perspective of the assistant) 2023’s Renfield (highlighting Dracula’s servant) and 2024’s Abigail (a take on Dracula’s daughter) didn’t hit any strides at the box office. Having watched most (if not all) of the classics with my dad when I was little, I would love to see them done once more - but with the authenticity and vigor of the original. Nosferatu starring Bill Skargsard seems promising enough, right? I would love to see something done for The Creature from The Black Lagoon. What do you think?

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is in a slump, and it really doesn’t seem to be getting any better. With three different sequels reportedly being cancelled and the Young Avengers no longer becoming a thing either, it really seems that the lifeline of the MCU (in the short term, anyways) rests on Deadpool & Wolverine. But the problem for me with this movie is that it seems to be one big nostalgia trip for those who were into Fox’s X-Men universe. Aside from the iconic Wolverine, I do not remember - or really care - about the numerous villains that were in comic book movies which were released almost twenty-five years ago. Without a doubt, there’s going to be more surprise names popping up, but cameos and teases only propel a movie so far - look at No Way Home or Multiverse of Madness for instance. Post-release buzz was nowhere near the pre-release hype. With that being said, do you think Deadpool & Wolverine will bring a new lifeline to the MCU? Let me know what you think.
