Episode 92: Complete Lack of Responsibility 101

It’s Wednesday!

In minute 92, the Oompa Loompas finish their final song, and point out that books don’t have commercials. Wonka, Grandpa Joe and Charlie are back in their street clothes, and Wonka goes through his mail. He has already basically forgotten about the Bucket family, and is extremely nonchalant about the fates of the other kids. David discusses the issues that he has with the Oompa Loompa choreography, and how much it has made him cringe over the years. Wonka needs to get back to the Queen, and Grandpa Joe plots to kite Willy Wonka’s checks.

Episode 84: Roy Kinnear, You Left Us Too Soon…

Ready for the weekend? Well let us get you there!

In minute 84, Veruca went first, and Mr. Salt goes second. Wonka gives the Salts a “good sporting chance”(?) of not getting burned up in the furnace. David and Jason question that math. David tries to figure out why the onscreen lyrics return for this particular Oompa Loompa song. We also discuss Charlie’s return to his sweet, caring form. We also discuss Roy Kinnear’s dive into the eggdicator chute.

Also, Jason continues to think that Wonka needs sunglasses…

Definitely not…

Episode 74: Wonka’s Sense of Humor

Happy Wednesday!

In Minute 74, we’re continuing to deal with Violet’s transformation. The Oompa Loompas moralize, and Mr. Beauregarde is very concerned for his daughter’s well being. We talk about this version of the Oompa Loompa song, and whether or not it’s diegetic. David breaks down the lyrics, trying to figure out what they’re getting at this time. We discuss how difficult it must have been to be Denise Nickerson for the shooting of this scene, and talk about the costume that she had to stay in for long stretches. There’s also a discussion about the gum chewing habits of our hosts.

Episode 62: The 2nd Most Well Known Ocean Liner Disaster

Welcome to the middle of the week!

In Minute 62, Wonka brushes off criticism of how he handled the Augustus situation, and introduces the tour group to their new form of transportation. Wonka fat shames Mr. Salt…which I suppose is only fair, since Mr. Salt did the same to Augustus. Jason has a theory about the diegesis of the Oompa Loompa song. David offers a different way of looking at the staging of the scene, and it may owe to some confusing camera work. Jason compares this issue to a similar issue during the semi chase in The Dark Knight. David wonders why Wonka names his boat after a sunken ocean liner.

Also, I found this auction listing for some Harper Goff drawings of the Wonkatania.

Episode 61: Photoshop – 1971 Edition(?)

Happy Monday!

In minute 61, we get the first of the Oompa Loompa songs, as the Oompa Loompas moralize over Augustus’ weakness. There’s discussion about the potential reasoning behind the usage of onscreen lyrics during the Oompa Loompa song. We also have a discussion about whether the Oompa Loompa song is diegetic. We also go back to episode 7, and discuss the usage of William Allingham’s The Fairies in a new context.

We’ll see you back here on Wednesday!
