Very very predictable, including the post credit scene !!!
To me, this movie is perfection.
Just what I expected
This is a small, humorous movie in some ways, but it has a huge heart. What a nice experience.
Having endured no less than four of the interminable PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN movies, I had no stomach for sitting through yet another film based on a theme park attraction, yet when I saw TOMORROWLAND on TV I decided to give it a go. After all, the presence of the ever-charming George Clooney had to be a good thing, right? Actually, the answer is no. This is a cheap, superficial kind of film, an adventure fronted by kids in which the narrative seems to be made up of the stringing together of various genre tropes, all melded together with a big dollop of CGI. It looks nice, but I found it hollow in the extreme, lacking decent characterisation and any kind of depth whatsoever. Soulless, in other words.
This movie is done in a style that literally doesn't exist anymore in movies...the style takes you back to a time that was "magical", to when Disneyland was brand new, and Disneyworld Orlando was in construction...Tomorrowland is not just scifi, it is the magic of what our futures can hold.Never mind that the movie itself is a bit choppy in presentation, with a story line that is, frankly, hard to follow at times. Crazy as the story may seem at times, it always keeps you wondering what's next...
To have ridden that amusement ride at Disneyland and to have attended the 1964 World's Fair should have spoken to my sentiments, but not until I saw dreamers through this lens did this story connect for me. Maybe they can create a TV show at Disney about this story.
I love most sci-fi, and while this feels like a children's film I remember seeing the adverts for it and thinking it would be good. And I've got to say, I really loved it. I am so surprised at the critics response to this though - What is their problem? It's a great film, has a brilliant message throughout of hope and promise and not giving up, even when it seems hard.The technology displayed in the film is really fun, I love the ideas and I they were executed very well. There was one time where the green screen didn't quite pan out when they were ascending the tower, but on the whole the effects were really well done.The acting, the cast, (Loved seeing Hugh Laurie in there) were all really well done too. I found this film to be heartwarming and fun, easy to watch and kept me entertained too.I'd have loved to have seen more of Tomorrowland, And I want to see a Tomorrowland 2 please.
