Tomorrow Land – really cool despite not knowing how it all works

tomorrowlandFilm and television reviews by our resident autistic film critic Maymay.

From Disney comes two-time Oscar® winner Brad Bird’s “Tomorrowland,” a riveting mystery adventure starring Academy Award® winner George Clooney. Bound by a shared destiny, former boy-genius Frank (Clooney), jaded by disillusionment, and Casey (Britt Robertson), a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity, embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space known only as “Tomorrowland.” What they must do there changes the world—and them—forever.

This movie was really good. Time traveling to the future seems really cool except the way they do it makes it seem too easy. If that’s what the future really looks like then I would like to go. I like that they named the girl from the future after a Greek goddess. I would like to know how a pin could take you there but you aren’t actually there. Casey walked into a wall an then into a swamp. I thought it was cool how they had Star Wars things in the one scene. A Stormtrooper, Han Solo when he is stuck in the carbonite , R2-D2,and I’m pretty sure there was a Boba Fett too. George Clooney played a very good grumpy character in the beginning of the movie. The technology was cool and who wouldn’t want to have a jet pack to fly around with. Although why were they always in a wheat field? Why not put them in Tomorrowland when they first touch the pin? How does it all work? Is there some kind of magic they’re using?
