Tomorrowland: A World Beyond

Whee! Wow! Watching “Tomorrowland” is like being on the biggest roller coaster ride in the world.

Yes, the plot is full of holes. Why complain about gloomy news so often, yet feature a lot of scenes of it?

And the product placement is so obvious, it will distract you.

Please don’t get me started on the random colon in the title. This trend for colons has to stop.

I grew up on Disney and have longed for happier films about the future. So the joy on offer here is appreciated and most enjoyable.

Youngsters Britt Robertson (Casey) and Raffey Cassidy (Athena) steal scenes from George Clooney (Frank) and Hugh Laurie (Nix).

Adventurous Casey is trying to protect her dad’s job. She is given a pin which pushes her to a futuristic place.

Modern history, philosophy and scifi are among my most-loved genres and this is a great movie, although there is confusion in the story.

Just let go of that. You adored “The Jetsons” so you’ll be happy watching this. Everyone at the Stratford East Picturehouse oohed and aahed, as did I.

Younger children were frightened at certain times and even I jumped, so nervous kids should be warned that it gets dark, at times.

It’s a vision of the future based on ideals of the 1960s. It reminded me of the visionary work of Arthur Radebaugh so I’ll add this link.
