A few movies ago, the trailer for Charlie and the Choclate Factory was shown. Prior to seeing the trailer I had been looking forward to seeing the movie. Roald Dahl is one of my authors and I absolutely adored the 1971 movie with Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka.
But after watching the trailer I’m not looking forward to the movie at all now. It didn’t seem as exciting and interesting as I remembered Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to be. I know that our tastes change as we mature (my album collection is a testament to that) but are childhood passions better left as memories?
