Unlucky Ned.

The image you see is an everlasting gobstopper from the 1971 classic Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory starring the late Gene Wilder and a bunch of annoying child stars. Again I’m picking the original and not the crap remake with Johnny Depp. Taken from the book by Roald Dahl (who wrote the movie screenplay but subsequently disowned the film when another writer made changes) it tells the story of poor kid Charlie Bucket who finds the last golden ticket allowing him entry to the famous factory and a tour by its reclusive owner. The gobstopper is in fact a loyalty test so that Wonka can find someone to take over the factory for him.

Wednesdays Movie

Well done Ned, yesterday we had Gladiator, directed by Ridley Scott and starring Russell Crowe in the title role as the betrayed former General Maximus. As well as winning the Best Picture Oscar, the 2000 film is single-handedly credited with reviving the sword/sandals genre and a rake of imitations have followed in its path including the likes of Troy, 300, etc. The image is taken from the end of the movie and shows the dying hand of Maximus as he trails it through the corn on his way to the afterlife (Elysium) where he will be reunited with his slain wife and son. Another outstanding soundtrack by Hans Zimmer & Lisa Gerrard.

Well done EAB  The Hunt for Red October directed by action specialist John McTiernan and starring a young Alec Baldwin and Sean Connery. If you got it right you get one ping only! The story of a near silent Russian nuclear submarine, a defecting captain and the CIA analyst who figures out his plan and trys to help him is a great 90’s Cold War thriller (even though the Cold War had already ended). The image is self explanatory but crucially shows the Russian for Red October at the bottom We shail into hishtory!
