Episode 95: Nerds For ELM

Welcome to the middle of the week!

In minute 95, Grandpa Joe continues to rail against all that he thinks is unfair, but Wonka won’t budge. Joe plots his revenge, but Charlie is having none of it, because Charlie is actually a good and decent human being. He provides a light in the darkness that is the world. David thinks that Grandpa Joe is projecting his own feelings about himself onto Wonka. We talk about revenge, and varying ways to think of revenge. We talk about Charlie’s good deed, and the Shakespearean quote that it inspires Willy Wonka to paraphrase. David even gets a little personal talking about his faith.

Also, please tweet at Dairy Queen’s official account, and tell them how much you want a Nerds Blizzard!

Thanks for listening, and we’ll see you back here on Friday!

Episode 51: Dodo Denney Is Knocking It Out of the Park

It’s FRIDAY!

Todd Hartsell is back for another episode. In minute 51, David consistently gets fooled by the optical illusion that is the small black and white room. Todd remembers the unsettling feeling of seeing it as a child, and David admits that there is a very claustrophobic feel to this minute. Todd talks about the way the scene is shot, and how it almost makes the kids disappear.

David always thinks the back wall is visible in this shot. It’s not.

Go to our Facebook group, and let us know what you thought the Willy Wonka tour was going to be like when you first saw this movie.

Also, listen to Todd on Minute of the Apes.

Come back next week for more!
