Tomorrowland is a movie about the way that we think about the future, and as the old saying goes, the future ain’t what it used to be. There was a time not so long ago when we looked to the days to come and envisioned marvels; now when we look to the future, what we see is often bereft of hope. This is the central problem that Tomorrowland seeks to address, and it’s a question worth pondering.
I’ll admit that I was underwhelmed by the extended preview before Avengers, and made skeptical by the negative reviews I’ve read of the film. Plus, George Clooney. But if Nathan sees this much good in it, perhaps it’s worth a watch.
