Charlie and the Chocolate Factory: enjoyed much more than expected,
keeps the spirit of Dahl books. Christopher Lee scenes were awesome.
The Island: not recommended. Good cast, potentially the original
script was good, but the whole thing got the Michael Bay treatment.
Not sure how they got most of the cast to do it (Scarlett claims to have
signed up before learning of the Michael Bay aspect).
Harry Potter 6: very harsh cliffhanger. You might want to wait for 7
to come out, then read the last two together.
Tour de France: not as exciting as some years, but always good.
