Episode 82: The Tyrannosaurus Rex of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

It’s the beginning of a new week!

In minute 82, Veruca sings her song, and runs around causing havoc. We try and figure out what 10,000 tons of ice cream would look like. David also spends time talking about the practice of lip syncing in movie musicals. We also discuss Veruca’s list of demands. We also slide in a plug for Minute of the Apes.

Episode 81: Spa Day

Happy Friday, everyone!

In minute 81, we’ve got nonsense and relish! Veruca wants a golden goose, and someone finally tells her “no”. This causes Mr. Salt to insult Wonka, and Veruca to start to sing. David does some digging to figure out where Wonka’s little sing song phrase in this minute comes from. We also go into some discussion about the origin and meaning of Easter eggs.

Episode 53: Music Theory with Todd

It’s the middle of the week!

Todd Hartsell is back discussing the minutes that he was looking forward to the most. In minute 53, we start what is, arguably, the most famous song in the movie. We discuss the chocolate room, and the reactions of the actors to the chocolate room. Todd also notices a nod to one of the most classic films in the history of the medium.

Find Todd on Minute of the Apes. Also, you can find his book, The Risen, at this link.

Episode 40: How Many Spiders Are In These Slippers?

Welcome to a new week!

In Minute 40, Grandpa Joe sings “I’ve Got a Golden Ticket”, and starts to wander around the room. We try and break down exactly where Joe’s perspective is coming from in the lyrics of this song. We have a lot of problems with his selfishness (and hyperbole). Jason points out that after 20 years of non-use, Grandpa Joe’s slippers, which he demands, probably have spiders living in them.

See you back here on Wednesday!
