    Pizza is a SANDWICH?! ►
    Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is a gem in the history of movies. It stands out not just for the acting and the main story, but all of the things you can find hiding beneath the surface. It is a surprisingly ominous movie and the character of Willy Wonka is at the center of the horror. We've talked about Wonka using the Golden Tickets to pass off his OSHA violations onto the winner, but what if that was not the only trick he's trying to pull? What else is Willy Wonka up to? Watch to find out!

    Or yknow. It's a movie set in 1970 where there isn't a single person of color that appears throughout the entire movie. The movie was rigged from the start not Wonka

    Im a loyal subscriber for Game and Film theory for a long time, your channels are all so good and entertaining, but for the love of God, stop asking for people to subscribe and check other channels every goddamn second.. Its frustrating 😤.. You became so cheesy man. Keep doing what you do and if people like it they will subscribe.

    5:45, surely removal of population shouldn't be considered as while highly improbable, it is possible that one person could obtain multiple golden tickets. Removal would be used as statistically when a ticket is found, the chance of finding one would get smaller. But it should not be for population.

    My next question is if Willy Wonka rigged this whole thing why did he choose such terrible people to get golden tickets? Could it be so continue the rigging and make it so the 1 kid he wants to have the factory will be the undisputed winner?

    If you look at the original book, there was one more ticket. It was won by a young girl who was a teachers pet. She was even against summer vacation. Her father was the headmaster and went with her. Their “death” was after Mikes. Wonka was creating a candy that would make a child sick for an hour or so so they didn’t have to go to school. They heard screaming after they went into the room. Wonka straight up admits he needed a young scholar and some kind of teacher to finish the candy. That in itself is proof he planted the bars because he knew he needed those people. The original was much more dark.

  • mappyhappychappy

    Mr Wilkinson was either: extremely good at working out the clusterf*ck that was international air travel in the early 70s, or a series of subservient clones of Arthur Slugworth that Wonka had made and named them all Mr Wilkinson.
    I mean, considering all the other things Wonka had created, clones aren't exactly off the table.
