Frank visits the 1964-65 New York World's Fair, the same one in which Walt Disney introduced the Carousel of Progress attraction and It's a Small World, both of which are still in the theme parks. Additionally, when Frank first arrives at the World's Fair, the Sherman brothers' song "There's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow" is playing, which was written for the Carousel of Progress. See more »
When the Blast From the Past robots blow up and destroy the store, Casey is shown landing in the street, as a colorful bit of memorabilia slides under her. It looks almost like a large smear of paint. But when the camera switches to the other side, and shows her beginning to stand up, the debris under her changes, and the colorful whatever-it-was is gone. 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.
