WandaVision

WandaVision ★★★

All the goodwill the series had created slowly turned to static as the show dragged on. Elizabeth Olsen was the shining light throughout, as she managed to evolve her performances with the changing times, whereas Paul Bettany, to me, kind of got lost in the mix. Sadly but not unexpectedly, WandaVision became too focused on its universe, trading off some of its genuinely exciting and innovative ideas in the process. In general, I think the standout element of the whole thing is the technical achievements reached in the first three-to-four episodes. If you are of the same sentiment and love the cinematography, do check out Letterboxd user Mikkel Abel’s brief interview with cinematographer Jess Hall.

All in all, I think WandaVision was in want of a vision.
