Bad Acting, Nice effects, and propagandaIt's a SciFi; But the movie attempts to create thought (good intention) but i was insulted to except their flawed messages, and was not emotionally pulled into this C movie . I must give praise to the child actors; Great Job..Score: 1/5
What an awesome movie!The critic got it totally wrong. I’m an adult and I enjoyed this movie tremendously, and I’m sure kids will do. Perhaps that’s what separates the dreamers from the doubters. This movie is for dreamers, and the message from the movie is to take actions about the world’s failures instead of accepting the status quo. But message aside, the storyline is just jaw dropping fun..Score: 5/5
Could have given it four starrsTomorrowland was the most interesting yet bad disney films i have seen in a while. It's captativing to see that disney has crossed the line with this movie and upon seeing the trailers and marketing choices this film had made i was planning in seeing this film to the hopes that it will be a giant waste of time. But instead of calling his film "visualy stunning and well executed this film is trying to be the science fiction verison of Wizard of Oz. The film follows boy genius frank (George Clooney) and his fellow science obesser Casey (Britt Robinson) who finds a coin that transports you into "Tomorrowland!" and his little to known partner David Nix (Hugh Laurie) together they must controll what's there's Tomorrowland is frustrating to explore despite the quality cast members that are casted in the film you would think a child would go see a disney film without knowing or excatly is for there age. Although George Clooney is the only one that is star-studded and both pretty in some movies where he tries and gives a good performence but playing a "boy genius" role for him wasn't suited or abstract if you will. See with all daring visuals and interesting plotpoints that don't make sense to audience members and this film is trying to be Wizard of Oz and Cloud Atlas both good movies that inspire science and achivement when it comes to telling a good story for the audience. Disney has been making stupid marketing films towards children including remaking ths cartoon disney films that already exist in the current planet we live in. Recently Disney remade Cinderella which was such a good template for the remake genre and telling a story is hard when it comes to remaking a film you have to tell that same story over and over again. Which is why Tomorrowland dosen't achive that must because of it's off-putting visual effects and wooden acting from the lead actors. And there you have a disney film which was directed by Brad Bird who recently directed Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol and the Incredibles. Brad Bird is the perfect choice for a sci-fi action, adventure director to helm this hidden movie of trash. And i was confused on what this movie is based on because many movies that Hollywood makes on based on books and i thought that Tomorrowland was based on a book and i was wrong. Unfortunatey this is based on the theme park that is placed on you guessed it Disney and this film knows exactly what kind of screw they can come up with. And presenting a futurestic city that 1,10000 million years from now has to show the main city up untill know in this film and what this film is trying to tell the audience that not all dreams come true and when a future city lays around maybe we won't live in a wasteless environment that will change the course of human events. Either way Tomorrowland is a complete piece of crap that dosen't explain what kind of plotholes or the characters are one-sided with each other because watching this film more than five times you will maybe lose touch of reality and the writting, the acting are all bad but visualy this disney film dosen't look real at all and should end up at the video store bin..Score: 2/5
Fantastic!!!!, The perfect World for Dreamers with an Imagination, Pure Fun!!!This movie is about incredible imagination with lots of fun, Inspiring throughout, I enjoyed every facet, Future World is a place where I would be most comfortable to live, Dreams are only limited to your imagination and this movie has many dreams waiting to be fulfilled, If only this place really existed today I would be truly free..Score: 5/5
A Fantastic Movie, But a Box Office FailureThis is another one of Disney's high budget movies that unfortunately slipped under the radar. It's a shame because this is one of the most visually stunning movies I have ever seen. The story is pretty spectacular as well. I love the idea of the city of Tomorrowland and this can't go unnoticed, MICHAEL GIACCHINO! One of his best film scores gives this film an outstanding music theme that is unforgetable and completely underrated. I also love finding all the easter eggs to the Disney Parks (Space Mountain, Spaceship Earth, etc.). Anyways, a really good film for everyone and an unfortunate failure for Disney. There was a lot of sequel potential for this movie and it just came up short..Score: 4/5
Fine movie!The movie did suffer from having to cram a 12 hour mini-series into a 90 minute (or so) format, but it has so much going for it that you don't have to focus on that. Fantastic effects, [some] great acting, and... hope, in a story that was not predictable and quite fun. High praise for all who created it. Sorry it did not strike the critics that way, but some folks don't like having to confront a movie where their very own negativity is the antagonist. The rest of us loved it. Try using negative capability (Keats; look it up) and enjoy the movie despite your political views. And for all those who think there are plot holes and unexplained phenomena, how do you cheer for a zombie or vampire movie? Use your imagination. The dots are there; connect them. It's a movie with a message, for sure. Brad Bird is an artist who wishes to acknowledge gifted and talented people, and wants society to do the same. People who know how things work shouldn't be relegated to the sidelines while the leftover savages in suits sack the world in real estate, investing, finance and politics. Don't kid me; you know who I'm talking about. They're all we see on the news. So what's wrong with not accepting that they win in the end and the world goes down in flames? The movie tells that story pretty well. For every Steve Jobs or Elon Musk, there are a hundred... well... I don't want this to get censored. You know who they are..Score: 4/5

A Great, Big, Beautiful Near-MissTomorrowland, Disney’s 2015 homage to retro-futurism, is like a tree made from grafts of several different species. The core story is a quest to find hope for the future in a present beset with troubles. Branching from this trunk are sub-plots: a mystery-adventure, a buddy movie, and a light romance. The effect is beautiful, but somehow the pieces don’t quite fit together. The story revolves around three heroes out to save not only the eponymous Tomorrowland but the future of our own world as well. George Clooney is Frank Walker, an optimistic boy-genius inventor turned cynical middle-aged man. Britt Robertson is Casey Newton, a twenty-first-century version of Frank Walker. She sets the story in motion when she receives a mysterious ring that temporarily transports her to a futuristic utopia, Tomorrowland. Guiding Casey on her quest is Athena, played by Raffey Cassidy. Athena is a robot . . . pardon me, an “audio-animatronic”. . . who looks like a ten-year-old girl. She was Frank Walker’s original guide to Tomorrowland back in 1964, and she comes to Casey’s rescue in the present day. The three join force in a last-ditch attempt to breach the dimensional walls of Tomorrowland and head off a global catastrophe. This is not a movie of excess, but one with an abundance of everything: appealing characters, thrilling action, stunning visuals. One gets the feeling that the filmmakers tried to put as many of their great ideas into the film as they could and ended up with too much. Tomorrowland could easily have been, and perhaps should have been, three movies, the first following Frank’s discovery of and exile from Tomorrowland, the second Casey’s quest and Frank’s redemption, and the third the struggle to save both worlds. That’s why Tomorrowland doesn’t quite work. Any of the three leading characters could have carried the movie on their own, but instead Tomorrowland tries to weave their stories together with mixed results. The movie starts with Frank Walker’s story, but before it can get moving it jumps fifty-some years into the future to pick up Casey’s story. Athena, because she’s a robot, does not change in fifty years, so her character is meant to tie the others together. She does so until Casey finds Frank. The story then takes up their story and Athena is left with little to do until the movie’s climax. What she was doing on Earth for fifty years, and how she escaped the robot enforcers from Tomorrowland, is never mentioned. The attempt to pack everything into one film cannot be excused by inexperience. Brad Bird, co-writer and director of Tomorrowland, has demonstrated his considerable talent on hit films like The Iron Giant, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, and Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol. It’s possible that Tomorrowland is like Spielberg’s 1941, proof that even a great filmmaker can have an off day. It’s also possible that this is a case of too many cooks. With an estimated budget of $170 million, not to mention the obvious tie-in to Disneyland, studio executives would have a hard time keeping their opinions to themselves. For all that, Tomorrowland is a lot of fun. The movie is more like a visit to its namesake at Disneyland, with monorails and impossible architecture and a focus on The Future. Its hopeful message also comes through, that we can still have a bright tomorrow if we’re willing to put in the work today..Score: 4/5
Slipped under the radarThis movie is poignant to me as I attended the 64 World’s Fair. It brought back a flood of memories and reminded me how the future was looked at as being a better time. I too, succumbed to the PKD storylines and with Star Wars in the seventies, space began to look a little beat up. With Nixon(the president of US) and his whole bag of mess we came to not admire those in high offices as we did with Kennedy and his optimism. I for one would like a more Star Trek and a less pessimistic or another joyless day of the year. But anyway, this movie does make one think....Score: 5/5

Mary Techno PoppinsTomorrowland is the spoonful of sugar to help the medicin go down ..... as the song in mary poppins says. Like ET or Goonies before it it is a kids film for adults too and rather than a disaster film as some critics have called it, it is the opposite. It contains wrapped in it's carbon nanofiber daisy dress ( see movie ) a powerful message of optimism, hope and just do it initiative as a surprise gift to the audience. It is well acted and beautiful to watch and keeps a reasonable medium between adult and kid humour. If the story Adam and the Dreamfish was ever to be made into a movie I would want the same team to do it. Great film, Warm fun Fuzzzy with a sci fi edge.Score: 4/5

Not a filmTomorrowland is a movie with many quirks, and an everlasting supply of originality, The main issue of the topic, is that this film is not a film. It doesn’t tell a tale that sparks positive controversy or questioning. Instead, the film portrays a very direct opinion that is not given any room to question. The film begins as a piece of technological art, and slowly becomes a piece of propaganda equal to the "Red Menace”. This film, intended to be ingested in a family matter, leaves too big a statement in the impressionable minds of the youth who are not then allowed to learn for themselves. Although this state of impression may be existent in the lives of our youth no matter what, it is dangerous to subject them to this kind of load in a public manner without the ability to exercise one’s need to question, and contrast to other events. As mentioned earlier, this is not a film. This is, however, a tool we can use to teach others. No matter what your position on the political or socio-economic statuses that exist today; we can all leave this “film” with something to either help us question our current beliefs, or as a tool to question the existence of the production itself..Score: 3/5
