Episode 64: It’s Not Like Beowulf!

Welcome to your new week! Buckle up, because this week we’re getting weird!

As minute 64 starts, we’re sailing along the chocolate river and we’re talking about nuts…Salt’s Nuts. Mr. Beauregarde tries to make some small talk with Mr. Salt, and Salt kills the conversation very quickly. After about 20 seconds of boating, we head toward the tunnel that has become infamous in the internet age. David reads a poem, and Jason recites one from memory. We also talk about Julie Dawn Cole’s recollections of shooting this scene.

If you’d like to buy Julie Dawn Cole’s book, you can find it on Amazon.

Episode 63: People Are Kinda Gross

Happy Friday!

In minute 63, we’re talking boat rides, physics, spitting and nose picking. We talk about how the physical travel of the Wonkatania worked in terms of filming, but we also discuss how boating on chocolate would actually work. David asks a question about the nature of the Chocolate Room, and what its actual purpose is. We also talk about the drama of shooting a film with adolescents, and David catches himself being wrong…again.

Also, it has been brought to our attention that Denise Nickerson, who played Violet, has suffered a stroke. You can read the EW story here, and can donate to the family for medical care here. We here at Everlasting Minute wish her a speedy recovery, and our thoughts are with her and her family.

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.
