Quick Thoughts on Tomorrowland

I agree completely with this review of Tomorrowland. (Below the comic, though the comic is also entertaining.)

Tomorrowland isn’t a *great* movie, but it’s a good movie. It’s entertaining, has an upbeat sense of life, and the message that optimism and a can-do spirit are better than wallowing in negativity and giving up. I feel like the critics who are bashing it are cynics who enjoy wallowing in negativity, and are offended by anyone deviating from this world view.

So if you are the kind of person who hates humanity and is eager for the apocalypse so we can finally get what’s coming to us, you probably won’t like Tomorrowland. But if you are the kind of person who is hopeful that technology will fix the problems of the world and make things better (as it has more or less continually over the last 10,000 years), you’ll find it to be a fun and enjoyable diversion.
