Fathers and sons. Heroes and villains. Virtual reality and candy factories. With a little editorial nipping and tucking, Gene Wilder's classic Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and the upcoming Tron: Legacy can blend into one candy-coated confection.

If you imagine, for a moment, that young Charlie Bucket isn't the winner of a contest to visit Wonka's great candy factory, but rather Wonka's son, then this mashup masterpiece makes all kinds of sense. And is actually kind of harrowing.
