Episode 64: It’s Not Like Beowulf!

Welcome to your new week! Buckle up, because this week we’re getting weird!

As minute 64 starts, we’re sailing along the chocolate river and we’re talking about nuts…Salt’s Nuts. Mr. Beauregarde tries to make some small talk with Mr. Salt, and Salt kills the conversation very quickly. After about 20 seconds of boating, we head toward the tunnel that has become infamous in the internet age. David reads a poem, and Jason recites one from memory. We also talk about Julie Dawn Cole’s recollections of shooting this scene.

If you’d like to buy Julie Dawn Cole’s book, you can find it on Amazon.

Episode 63: People Are Kinda Gross

Happy Friday!

In minute 63, we’re talking boat rides, physics, spitting and nose picking. We talk about how the physical travel of the Wonkatania worked in terms of filming, but we also discuss how boating on chocolate would actually work. David asks a question about the nature of the Chocolate Room, and what its actual purpose is. We also talk about the drama of shooting a film with adolescents, and David catches himself being wrong…again.

Also, it has been brought to our attention that Denise Nickerson, who played Violet, has suffered a stroke. You can read the EW story here, and can donate to the family for medical care here. We here at Everlasting Minute wish her a speedy recovery, and our thoughts are with her and her family.

Episode 59: 40 Takes and One Costume

It’s the fourth of July…celebrate by listening to us talk about a German boy falling into a chocolate river.

Minute 59 is where Augustus Gloop contaminates the chocolate river with his hands…and then his entire body. Also, Veruca has a weird idea of what an Oompa Loompa is, and we’re venturing into some pretty weird territory. We also learn that the production team did not seem to be prepared for shooting this scene.

Have a safe holiday!

Episode 58: Green Wigs and Orange Makeup

Happy Monday!

Jason and David start a new week talking about minute 58. We learn more about the Oompa Loompas and Loompaland, and Mrs. Teevee is being a know it all again. David doesn’t really understand the creaming and sugaring process in the chocolate river. Mike Teevee wonders aloud if the Oompa Loompas are real…and if they’re not real, what are they? We also talk about Rusty Goffe who is the Oompa Loompa with the most credits.

Episode 55: Kicking Chocolate Filled Balls

Happy Monday!

Todd Hartsell joins Jason and David for Minute 55. Wonka allows the group to go running off in all different directions, as they explore the almost entirely edible Chocolate Room. Todd points out that this is not a scene for people who find eating with your hands to be gross. We have a hard time figuring out what kind of candy Augustus is eating. And is Willy Wonka lying to the world about how his candy produced? We also discuss how on-screen eating is done during movie making.
