Several plot details appear to have been taken from Clifford Simak's novel Ring Around the Sun, in which an organization of talented people is creating new civilization in parallel reality Earth. The difference is that, in the novel, the organization is created by mutants who are able to travel between realities, and who impact Earth-1 by selling their advanced products. See more »
Young Casey points out the stars on March 9, 2003m 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. They can only be seen together in early February, just after sunset. Vega would be setting and Sirius would be rising. Procyon, Capella, and Betelgeuse can all be seen near Sirius. Canopus is near Sirius too, but it's a southern star that can only be seen close to the horizon in North America. Arcturus is closer to Vega and is best seen in in the northern hemisphere in late spring to summer. See more »
I like this movie, well to say that I mean I like the movie up until they get to Tommorowland. The movie up until they get to Tommorowland is richly original and fun to watch. I thought it was cool seeing our characters traveling across the country and encountering sci-if stuff contrast to the homely city location. It was just such a fresh take on sci if and I was loving how it looked, but then we do go to Tomorrowland and it sucks. That's when things are confusing, and don't really excite as much as the first 60-70 minutes. I'm not saying removing the arrival to Tomorrowland would've made a more interesting movie, the movie just needed to make the Tomorrowland segment more interesting. But for the film they are getting across I liked it fairly well. After all this movie's heart is in the right place with a hopeful message.
Overall: Not as great as Pirates of the Caribbean, but not as terrible as The Country Bears either.
