Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Noah Taylor plays Father Bucket, Charlie's father.

We missed the Reds first game of the second half and only televised game of the weekend to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I am very happy to see that the Reds have started off the second half right even without my ever-watchful eye. I never doubted it for a minute.

In fact, I was so confident that it was only minor agony to wait all the way until we got home to find out how the game had turned out. Part of that was alleviated by the movie itself. I heard that this movie received poor reviews, but I thought it was wonderful. Parts of it felt like they were written just for me, even though the whole audience was laughing and even applauded at the end.

Not only did it leave me grinning like an idiot, but it also left me with an inexplicably positive feeling about Joe Randa.
