Episode 99: Happily Ever After

Happy Friday, and welcome to the penultimate episode of Everlasting Minute.

In minute 99, Wonka gives Charlie some very exciting, if unexpected news, and explains what the purpose of the contest was. We discuss the nature of happy endings in general, and this happy ending in particular. David and Jason decide that this may be the happiest ending in film history, and they’re hard pressed to come up with a way to describe the change in circumstance for Charlie and his family. We also discuss the original novel’s outcomes for the other four children.

Thanks for listening, and we’ll see you on Monday for the final episode of Everlasting Minute.

Episode 57: Chocolate Covered Steak

It’s Friday!!!

Todd is with us for one last episode, as we discuss minute 57. We’ve wrapped up the joy of “Pure Imagination”, and now we turn our sights to the Chocolate Room. Specifically, the centerpiece of the room the chocolate river and waterfall. Todd has questions about the buttercup, and the sound design of the bite. Mr. Salt and Mrs. Gloop have a weird reaction to the river running through the Chocolate Room. Mr. Salt seems pretty impressed with the fact that Wonka confides in him. We discuss the recording of the dialogue in this scene, which leads to a discussion about the the possibility of another filmed remake of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We end the episode discussing the Oompa Loompas and comparing the version in this film to Tim Burton’s version.

Thanks to Todd for being with us one final time. You can find Todd on Minute of the Apes and The Other Kind Radio. Also, you can find his book, The Risen, at this link.
