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!
