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 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 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.
