Tomorrowland

Conflict being the essence of drama and all that, it’s not easy to pull an entertainment out of a pleasant scenario, unless it’s one under threat.

In this case the utopian promise of Tomorrowland is in danger of never arriving. We’re presented with a rampant dystopia and the hero’s adventure of turning the funeral barge around. There’s a good theme in here about prophecies of doom being self-fulfilling but it gets lost in a confusing jumble of wistful longing for futures past and finally pinning humanity’s hopes for redemption on NASA and innovative tech startups.

Screen scribe Damon Lindeloff again (PrometheusStar Trek Into Darkness, and the TV series Lost). It’s like incoherent or unresolved narrative is now a style.
