I'm glad I saved my money.
First the good. This picture got something right that I have never seen anyone else ever get close to. This was the first movie I have ever seen that got the vibe of the Heinlein Juveniles just right. I'm not kidding, Bird managed it. The Precocious girl. The older man. The sudden danger coming out of nowhere to pursue them. The elements and more importantly the vibe was there. The comic book store owner who's name was Hugo Gernsback was a great touch as well as the fifties toy science fiction guns that could actually blow holes in walls.
Hugo is the one on the right
The one on the left is his wife.
Yes, this movie was made in the last eighteen months.
Now the bad. The mysterious MacGuffin turned out to be fucking terrible.
When George Clooney was a kid working in Tomorrowland...
Okay quick explanation of Tomorrowland now provided by Hugo the Expositionbot.
...he invented a machine that could predict the future. The problem was that his machine told them when the world was going to end which was within a month or so of the film's release. Tomorrowland fell apart and Clooney was exiled.
The ridiculous part is that this 100% certainty of catastrophic is easily averted just by being optimistic about the future...and blowing up the machine.
The epilogue is that George and the spunky girl protagonist are getting Tomorrowland up and running again...by making it SJW friendly.
If you want to watch it just for the mechanics that's fine but turn it off after the Eiffel Tower scene because it sucks after that. Sadly, I can't recommend it.
