Episode 53: Music Theory with Todd

It’s the middle of the week!

Todd Hartsell is back discussing the minutes that he was looking forward to the most. In minute 53, we start what is, arguably, the most famous song in the movie. We discuss the chocolate room, and the reactions of the actors to the chocolate room. Todd also notices a nod to one of the most classic films in the history of the medium.

Episode 52: John Ratzenberger is Rachmaninoff?

Happy Monday everyone!

Todd Hartsell is back for another week of chocolatey goodness. In minute 52, David derisively responds to a comment that Mrs. Teevee makes. Wonka responds to a comment by Mr. Salt a little less derisively. Todd waxes rhapsodic about film making techniques of the past. The adults in this scene are being a bunch of Debbie Downers, which Todd points out. Also, David does funny voices, and, surprise, he screws up again.

We’ll see you back here on Wednesday!

Episode 51: Dodo Denney Is Knocking It Out of the Park

It’s FRIDAY!

Todd Hartsell is back for another episode. In minute 51, David consistently gets fooled by the optical illusion that is the small black and white room. Todd remembers the unsettling feeling of seeing it as a child, and David admits that there is a very claustrophobic feel to this minute. Todd talks about the way the scene is shot, and how it almost makes the kids disappear.

David always thinks the back wall is visible in this shot. It’s not.

Go to our Facebook group, and let us know what you thought the Willy Wonka tour was going to be like when you first saw this movie.

Also, listen to Todd on Minute of the Apes.

Episode 50: Grandpa Joe Exposed

It’s Wednesday…you know what that means!

Todd Hartsell is back to join David for minute 50. In this minute, David mixes up soap catch phrases, Willy Wonka blows people off repeatedly, and Mike Teevee goes off on a tangent. David and Todd marvel over the performances of the child actors in this movie, specifically gushing over Julie Dawn Cole’s acting as Veruca. Also, David points out how in control Wonka is of everything that happens.

Episode 49: Like C-3PO Gone Mad

Welcome to a new week!

In minute 49, Jason is on vacation, so David is joined by Todd Hartsell from Minute of the Apes, one of David’s favorite Movies by Minute podcasts. David and Todd discuss the donning of garments, and the terrifying, if wondrous, sight of golden hands closing around coats and hats. Todd teaches us about the language of 1970s film making. David spends way too much time reading the small print on the wall sized contract that Wonka presents to the finders of the Golden Tickets.

Come back Wednesday for more Willy Wonka goodness!

Episode 48: Vestments is a Great Word

Happy Friday, everyone!

In minute 48, Jason’s adopted catch phrase finally shows up in the movie. The assembled group of Wonka, the children and chaperones, head inside the factory to begin their journey…in a very oddly shaped room. There are a ton of great reactions throughout this minute, especially considering the room, and Willy Wonka’s general demeanor.

Thanks for listening, and we’ll see you next week!

Episode 47: Head Canon on Fleek

It’s your mid-week candy coated, deliciously decadent treat!

Episode 46: The Canadian Tuxedo

Welcome to a new week with Everlasting Minute!

In minute 46, we discuss the children crowding around the gate, their wardrobes, and the security of said gate. David has questions about Mr. Slugworth’s scar. Jason and David both have issues with remembering when Wonka’s cane gets stuck, no matter how many times they watch it. We revisit a discussion from episode 43, touching on Charlie and Grandpa Joe’s respective feelings about Slugworth. Also, David decides that Gene Wilder could’ve gone into a completely different line of work if acting hadn’t worked out.

Episode 45: Touch On Gene Wilder

We’re finishing out week number 15.

Heidi Bennett is with us one final time, and minute 45 finally introduces us to Mr. Willy Wonka! Unfortunately, he doesn’t do a whole lot except
limp down a carpet. So, we spend most of the episode discussing the career of Gene Wilder. We do briefly criticize Violet for chewing with her mouth open. And we also compare the outfit between the original film, and the tribute version in the Futurama episode referencing the film.

Thanks to Heidi for joining us for a great week of discussion. You can find her in the following places around the internet:
