KEEPIN' IT REEL

Tomorrowland, Walt Disney Pictures

Bound by a shared destiny, a teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor embark on a mission to unearth the secrets of a place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory.

THE GOOD

Story was fresh and real. Visually stunning. Nuanced relationship between Frank and Athena was believable and never crossed into a "weird place". We also really enjoy that the trailers gave almost nothing away regarding the plot of this movie. For the most part, we walked in blind.

THE BAD

The movie could have been trimmed down. Not enough Tomorrowland. Pin in actuality was not a pin and in other instances was a pin. Scenes for the kids were poorly introduced and executed. Casey Newton’s character development was lacking as the “main protagonist.”
