When young Casey is pointing out the stars the date is March 9, 2003 and the sky is very dark. She mentions several stars including Sirius and Vega. Sirius is a winter star and Vega is a summer star. These stars are on opposite sides of the sky and would NOT be seen together. The only possible time would be early February just after sunset. Vega would be setting and Sirius would be rising.
The other stars Procyon, Capella, Betelgeuse could all be seen near Sirius. Canopus is near Sirius too, but it is a southern star and can only be seen close to the horizon in North America. Arcturus is closer to Vega and is best seen in late spring-summer in the northern hemisphere. See more »
Maybe a bit childish but enjoyable sci-fi tale none the less.
A bit uneven and too long (It takes the movie about 30 minutes to really kick into gear). Otherwise I enjoyed the plot of slowly figuring out what is Tomorrowland and what's the purpose behind it all. So it's not a perfect film but a long way from the failure it's made out to be. Brad Bird doesn't disappoint.
I have read quite a lot of negative comments about this movie and even its message and I find that to be slightly odd. From saying science should only concentrate on inventions instead of research to being annoyingly preachy. God forbid if a movie has a message these days and despite it having an agenda I thought the movie was fun and entertaining.
I personally found the message of the movie to be pro-science and to fight the cynicism and apathy that makes it seem it's impossible to save the world from the direction we're going in. I usually feel there's no hope for the human race but I like to see movies that try to convince me otherwise and try to keep the small glimmer of hope alive.
