I came back safely last Thursday but didn’t get home until early evening. I haven’t been up to much really; doctor’s appointments, eye examinations (I’m considering contacts for certain occasions such as sports) and catching up with my family. We’ve been out to a couple of meals and went to see CatCF tonight. Sorry for not being in touch with many people just yet, but my parents will be going away on holiday on the 13th August, so I plan to organise some sort of sleepover then.
CatCF was very good. I was a little worried it wouldn’t work, but Tim Burton brought out the best in the film with his eccentric artistry and humour (although I think the old version still has its charm). Johhny Depp portrayed Willie Wonka as an odd, introverted artist very well and Danny Elfman’s score and Oompa Loompa songs (he sang them!) completed the zany atmosphere of the factory. What’s more, I saw a trailer for Burton’s ‘Corpse Bride’ before the film. It’s very Nightmare Before Christmas-esque, not least because it’s done in stop-motion animation and Elfman is scoring in it as he did NMBC ^_^! I can’t wait! Roll on September 23rd, or whenever it gets its UK release ^^.
Check out the trailer *here*
