Since Burton records commentaries for most of his movies, you'd think the guy would have perfected his patter by the time he did this one for the HD/Blu-ray version of CHARLIE, but he still leaves big gaps in the track (many gaps do get shorter in the second half of the commentary though). Burton begins by talking about Roald Dahl, and then the cast of the film, then moves into more of the conceptual elements of the film (sets and music). Among some of his more personal reactions, his comments about squirrels are the most amusing. Is it any surprise that he finds them terrifying?? Still, with all the gaps, you'd think he could have found a few things to say about Depp's Wonka, the previous 70s version of the film, or even how this film fits into his own oeuvre.
