Two recent examples -
Batman Begins - huge microwave generator vaporises all nearby water. It vaporises the towns water supply, but has no effect on the humans (I think the last time I checked this out - we were 80% water...)
War Of The Worlds - As the aliens land, everything mechanical and electrical stops. However, someone manages to use his camcorder to video the entire thing. Hmmm. Strange.
Any more things to add?

Probably not, considering they use the term "candy", "allowance" and a number of other yank terms. He also uses a dollar to buy the winning bar. Where is it being set in England mentioned?
Then just carry on watching the film.

That would seem highly likely.

It could be that you are getting different peoples opinions, also peoples views are more likely to change once they have experienced something.
I like the original more. I still hold the opinion that Wilder makes a better Wonka than Depp.

Huh? How's it a movie mistake when Burton added that content himself, and it wasn't in the book to start with? He never made a secret of the fact he was adding this element. I've heard it's not a brilliant addition, but it's hardly a "McLains vest changing color" mistake.
except the car.
