WandaVision Episode 5 Recap- SPOILERS

Published

on

THIS ARTICLE WILL CONTAIN HUGE SPOILERS FOR WANDAVISION EPISODE 5

DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN EPISODE 5 OF WANDAVISION

LAST CHANCE TO AVOID SPOILERS

So assuming you’ve made it this far you’ve now seen episode 5 of WandaVision and you’re either thinking “who on earth was that dude that appeared at the end?” or you’re trying to contain your excitement about multiverses and about the X-Men.

If you don’t recognize him, the actor who appeared at Wanda and Vision’s door at the end of the episode was Evan Peters. He’s appeared in quite a few things including Kick-Ass and American Animals but what he’s probably best known for is his role as Peter Maximoff/Quicksilver in the X-Men films. He first appeared in X-Men: Days of Future Past, wowing audiences with the incredible scene in the Pentagon set to Jim Croce’s Time in a Bottle. He later appeared as Quicksilver again in X-Men: Apocalypse and Dark Phoenix and now the fact that he’s turned up in WandaVision as Pietro opens up so many doors for where the MCU could go next.

The big questions are ‘Is this real?’ and ‘How is this happening?’. We know that upcoming Marvel films such as Spider-Man 3 and Doctor Strange: in the Multiverse of Madness will both bring ideas about the multiverse into the MCU so perhaps that’s one explanation and we might soon see the rest of the X-Men appear but perhaps it’s just Wanda subconsciously bringing her brother back to life just in a different body now?

This cameo opens up so many doors for the MCU and since Disney bought Fox back in 2019, who knows who else we might see pop up in future episodes of WandaVision! Might we see Michael Fassbender return as Magneto? Or Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier? What about Aaron Taylor-Johnson returning as Quicksilver from Age of Ultron? We’ll have to wait a few more weeks to see what the rest of WandaVision has in store for us but this week’s new addition is certainly a very exciting one.

Evan Peters’ surprise cameo was definitely the highlight of the episode but there were still plenty of other exciting things going on in today’s episode. We had Woo and Darcy referring to Endgame and talking about Captain Marvel and Scarlett Witch being able to single- handedly take on Thanos. There was Wanda and Vision’s kids growing up instantly, we got to see that Lagos and the events of the Captain America: Civil War opening are still on Wanda’s mind in the form of the advert for Lagos Paper Towels. They even got a dog called Sparky- the very same name as given to a dog created by Vision in the Marvel comics.

One thing I particularly liked about this week was the way the episode jumped from within the ‘Westview anomaly’ and the sitcom style to outside and into the real world. It had a really good mix of tones and styles that worked very well and I think lots of fans will like as some weren’t too keen on the sitcom style of the first few episodes.

WandaVision episode 5 was absolutely jam packed full of amazing moments and references to both the comics and previous Marvel films and as to where the series is going, we’re still not entirely sure but it’s definitely proving to be an incredible piece of television that is revolutionising the MCU and making us desperate for the next week’s episode.

Snow White Will Be The Worst Live Action Disney Remake: Here’s Why

Published

on

It’s no surprise that Disney’s latest foray in the live-action space has come to remaking the animated classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. Admittedly, the remakes are not inherently bad but this latest Marc Webb project may be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. Many of the remakes have been criticized for lacking the magic and charm of their animated counterparts. That may be true in some cases but Snow White seems like a remake to take the cake for that and the film hasn’t even been released. 

Not only does it seem that the film is going against the grain of what made the 1937 film so memorable, it decided to delay its release to 2025, which is usually not a good sign. 

Snow White isn’t a love story anymore

According to lead actress Rachel Zegler’s comments, “People are making these jokes about ours being the PC Snow White, where it’s like, yeah, it is—because it needed that. It’s an 86-year-old cartoon, and our version is a refreshing story about a young woman who has a function beyond “Someday My Prince Will Come“.

 

Having a character go beyond a love story is perfectly fine, but when filmmakers are remaking a classic tale that was largely based around the idea of romance and a strong love story, not making romance the focus of said remake will only lead to undercut what the 1937 film achieved.

It may not be Zegler’s fault that she was cast and is a larger problem that relies on Disney but the fact that the Mouse House cast a Columbian instead of a white actress when the movie is called “Snow White”, not “Off White”. 

 

Destroying the fabric and race of who Snow White is supposed to be almost makes it an insult to the character. She’s a great actress but this was not the vehicle for her.

 

Cast comments and director silence

Zegler has not done herself any favors by practically spitting on the legacy of the 1937 film and she and the filmmakers have decided to not only make a love story but also add (mostly) CGI dwarves instead of real actors. 

 

Moreover, director Marc Webb of “The Amazing Spider-Man” duology has been radio silent about the movie and apparently has been tapped to direct a Bermuda Triangle movie. That’s all probably because he knows that “Snow White” is going to suck.

Disney’s Latest Star “Wish”

Published

on

Plot

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Wish” is an all-new musical-comedy welcoming audiences to the magical kingdom of Rosas, where Asha, a sharp-witted idealist, makes a wish so powerful that it is answered by a cosmic force—a little ball of boundless energy called Star. Together, Asha and Star confront a most formidable foe—the ruler of Rosas, King Magnifico—to save her community and prove that when the will of one courageous human connects with the magic of the stars, wondrous things can happen.

Movie Review (no spoilers)

The film is inspired by Disney’s centennial, which ties together a central theme across most of the Disney-related stories — of wishes and dreams coming true. One can view it as the origin story for the wishing star, albeit a funny star. Disney delivers a feel good story filled with humor and the occasional teases and links to other Disney-related works. Ariana DeBose braces the big screen as the hero, Asha who discovers a sinister secret about King Magnifico and his use of the wishes.

Ariana’s performance performance is amazing and I enjoyed listening to the songs she performed. I foresee “This Wish” topping the charts at Spotify soon.

Chris Pine plays the part of King Magnifico and delivers a good performance as the villain. We hear him sing a song alongside Ariana, At All Costs.

At All Costs by Chris Pine & Ariana DeBose (Spotify)

The story delivers the usual fun characters that Disney brings along in all stories, amazing graphics of a magical world, and an amazing song library for everyone to listen to. This movie is excellent for young and old, delivering a feel-good movie for all. Wish is yet another treasure in the world of Disney.

I’m really excited for the next 100 years of Disney magic. The movie Wish has the potential to become a sequel, or even provide potential spin-offs exploring the wishes and dreams of others in the magical Disney Universe.

My wish is for more many more years of movie magic from Disney. What is yours?

My rating is a 4 out of 5 for Disney’s Wish. Watch at a cinema near you and join in the Disney centennial celebrations!
