DisEnvy at the Movies: Tomorrowland

In a time where if a movie doesn't make over $60 million on the first weekend, it is considered a bomb, we have a great movie from Disney that opened with $32.1 million for this Memorial Day weekend. 

In 2013, just before D23, Disney started its viral campaign for the movie Tomorrowland, and ever since, the expectations have been monumental. With filming taking place in Disneyland and Walt Disney World (for scenes at the 1964 World's Fair) many fanboys had hopes that they would see a story about their favorite rides that have their start in the parks thanks to this World's Fair. 

Two years later, however, we get this amazing movie that was made for us Disney fans. The general theme of the movie is something we are all familiar with, "If you can dream it, you can do it". I don't want to go to far into the movie because that is something that director Brad Bird wanted to keep low until you saw the movie. 

The main cast, consisting of George Clooney, Britt Robertson, Hugh Laurie, and Raffey Cassidy, have a great on screen chemistry and each put a lot into their performances. 

Michael Giacchino (Star Trek, Up, Speed Racer) composes a great and emotional score. Giacchino himself calls this a very personal piece. The music puts you in the exact spot that you need to be in each scene, creating another voice of the story. 

Overall, this movie is a must see for everyone. There is some language from the two male characters, but a great move non the less. 

I give this movie a 8/10.
