Just got back from Tommorowland.
Ug. I'm going to buy it because I want to walk frame-by-frame through the scenery/cityscapes, but I'm perfectly ok with never hearing
that dialogue ever again.
Its just DULL. Its about the most soulless 'message of hope' I've ever seen. Certainly not the first time a villain monologues and I am right there with them nodding my head - fury at a planet of idiots I get.
And when I start to think I'm too cynical, I remember that I'm supposed to cry for little girl robots and laugh at the wholesale slaughter of boy robots. Then I remember I'm not even close to the most cynical voice in the theater - the writers outstrip me by miles.
About the only good thing I have to say is at least when this female protagonist is anointed "the special one" (and no-shit, they call her that) at least she's special because of her own accomplishments and not because she's born a princess.
Mad Max was amazing. Epic. It's Battle Opera
that is unashamed of being REALLY LOUD. I absolutely recommend seeing it in the theater because the home experience will not be the same.
Tommorowland will shrink down to the small screen and you won't even blink.
