Episode 75: Lickable Wallpaper Lifehack

Happy Friday!

We’re three quarters of the way through the movie. In minute 75, Violet and Mr. Beauregarde take their leave, and we head into a hallway with lickable wallpaper. We talk about the continued uncomfortability of Denise Nickerson’s blueberry costume. We discuss the origin of the literary quote that Willy Wonka dispenses in this minute, and the misunderstandings of childhood. We also see another example where the context of the literary quotes help us understand why it’s being used in this moment. Toward the end of the episode, David brings the episode to a screeching halt. We finish the episode by talking about the logistics of lickable wallpaper.

See you next week!

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 73: Was The Gum Real?

It’s a brand new week!

In minute 73, Violet is chewing away at a piece of gum, and it has extremely unintended results. We talk about the rather blase attitudes of several members of the tour. We also talk about the very quick change in Mr. Beauregarde’s attitude, and the fact that he is apparently very fond of sour cream. We talk a bit about the logistics of inflating Violet’s costume, and how that may have affected the on set dialogue recording. We also discuss the possibility that a famous comedian may have gotten his stage persona from this very minute…

Episode 44: Charlie’s Geocities Page

It’s time for your middle of the week sweet treat!

Heidi Bennett is back with us, and is champing (or chomping) at the bit to discuss minute 44. In this minute, we discuss Violet and her chewing gum. Veruca has very strict designs on what she wants out of the next few minutes, and her father grudgingly obliges. We find out that Heidi and David have similar experiences in a past life. We also discuss the way that the media covering this event sees Grandpa Joe and Charlie. We also go down a rabbit hole of what the Golden Ticket winners would be like in the social media age.

Thanks to Heidi for joining us for another great discussion! You can find her in the following places around the internet:

Episode 43: Fish Faces and Badgers

Happy Memorial Day to our US listeners!

It’s a new week, and with us, we have a guest! Heidi Bennett joins us to discuss minute 43. In this minute, Grandpa Joe gets a small moment for Jack Albertson to flex his dramatic acting muscles…while still wearing a terribly dirty night shirt. We learn that Mike Teevee has a friend named Fish Face. Also, David continues to think the worst of Grandpa Joe. We also have a conversation about how some of the kids “flaws” are exacerbated by their parents. Also, Jason compares the scene in this minute to public executions.

Episode 20: Empty Promises to Computers

Welcome back for your mid-week sweet treat! In minute 20, we continue with the computer operator scene, and the computer operator is becoming unhinged. In fairness, he does have to answer to these stern looking gentlemen, who may or may not be mobsters of some stripe. Charlie stares at a television, and we briefly meet the next of our Golden Ticket winners, Violet Beauregarde. Also, Jason is apparently sponsored by a TV company.
