As movies about the workings of Wall Street go, it has the misfortune to be following THE BIG SHORT while that film – last year’s Oscar winner for Adapted Screenplay – is still in people’s memories.

TOMORROWLAND movie poster | ©2015 Walt Disney Pictures

Rating: PG Stars: George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, Britt Robertson, Raffey Cassidy, Thomas Robinson, Pierce Gagnon Writers: Damon Lindelof and Brad Bird, story by Brad Bird & Damon Lindelof & Jeff Jensen Director: Brad Bird Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures Release Date: May 22, 2015 Supremely well-intentioned and very uneven, TOMORROWLAND is a movie that’s easier to appreciate than to actually enjoy. Yes, it has some great concepts and delightful moments, but it also has long stretches that feel borrowed from dozens of other kid-friendly quest stories, along with some expository dialogue that goes on longer than is safe. TOMORROWLAND starts with […]Read On »
