Tomorrowland chokes on a big, fat Green pill

I desperately wanted to like Tomorrowland. The film’s director, Brad Bird, had made my favorite Pixar film (The Incredibles) and Iron Giant and Ratatouille besides, and the subject matter – that awestruck, hopeful image of the technological future promised in the Disney theme park attraction that gives the film its name – is one dear to my heart. But I didn’t, and I should have seen the reason coming a mile away.

    Pretty much avoid anything with Clooney in it these days for this very reason. He has dropped any subtlety he might have had and now all of his work hits you over the head with a political message with the finesse of a bag of hammers.
    Miss the days when he was a bit goofy, like Return of the Killer Tomatoes.

    Why does the perfect city of the future have no black people in it?

    Damon Lindelof has the reverse Midas touch…everything he handles turns to crap…

    I’m amazed George Clooney’s character wasn’t a Muslim ex terrorist.

    I have never seen a decent movie with George Clooney in it.
