How can you not have seen Willy Wonka? It’s just one of my all time favorite films, ever. The story is every kids dream, to visit a famous candy factory filled with tons of goodies. Although there was a remake, the 1971 original remains the best.
Based off of Roald Dahl’s book, the film tells the tale of five lucky children who each found a golden ticket in their Wonka Bars and have the opportunity to visit Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory for a full tour as well as a lifetime supply of chocolate. Yes please! Each character is very different and their personalities are truly remarkable and entertaining.
Their journey brings much adventure, to say the least. They don’t know it but Wonka has set up a secret test for all of them and in the end, only one passes. Little Charlie Bucket wins the prize which is way more than he and his family could of ever imagined. A must see for every child, this film is not only fun to watch but shares lessons along the way.
The color palette is one of bright and many colors. Think of a rainbow multiplied a few times. From the costumes to the Oompa Loompas and beyond, color is one thing this film didn’t lack. It’s a good palette to get inspiration from when planning a children’s party, for sure. Willy Wonka rules!
James and the Giant Peach is a classic film for children and people of all ages. Tim Burton brings this amazing story to life and allows us all to visit a place where our imaginations can soar. Originally written by Roald Dahl, James is stuck living with his mean aunts when his parents pass away. After some time, he meets a little man outside who gives him a secret potion. Unfortunately, James spills it all over the peach tree by accident but to his surprise the peach brings him a way to escape, explore and find happiness.
With all his little insect friends, he travels the high seas to find his way to New York City. Their journey is full of adventure and amazement. The color scheme used is full of life and holds a childlike feel, taking us all on the exciting trip with James we will never forget.
