Middle Aged Lady Night In - Tomorrowland
I have a stack of things to read and watch at the moment and the DVR is getting full. So for Friday night I chose to watch Tomorrowland. It is a bit of a George Clooney vehicle that I am thinking is a bit hard to explain, even after reading the Wikipedia explanation.
In simple terms it starts with Georges character as a young boy who finds himself led into an amazing future, full of flying cars and spaceships. Now in the present he us a recluse, living in a rundown house full of strange inventions. Meanwhile a young girl Casey gets her own glimpse of the future, and this leads her to George and then lots of chasing and explosions occur. Will they be able to save the future? Can they prevent the demise of the world?
I am not sure I am clever enough to understand the plot, but I am sure most 12 year olds could figure it out. Somehow I think that more time and money were invested in the special effects rather than the plot or script. 3/5.
