Episode 3: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory vs Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

In the third episode of Reel2Recent, we tackle a childhood classic: the story of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. A magical tale of chocolate and (horrible) children, which version of this Roald Dahl story is more entertaining?

With Gene Wilder as the classic Willy Wonka and Johnny Depp in the modern interpretation, which actor carries more weight? Which film has more likable kids? Which Grandpa Joe is more of a jerk? All of these questions will be answered and more!

Alongside our namesake, Reel 2 Recent, we also talk about the not-so-latest news. Without spoilers, one of the gang gets pretty mad at some recent revelations.
