Surprisingly delightful. I went in with low expectations. I'm not keen on prequels (or "origin stories") and don't particularly like the first two Willy Wonka films. And I haven't seen one film with Timothée Chalamet, which I've liked. But I found this utterly magical. Couldn't remember any of the songs afterwards, but they were fun during the film. And in Wonka we've got to the point where CGI is transporting and not annoying any more.
