Tomorrowland * Brad Bird (2015)

This huge Hollywood Disney-kid-fantasy-scifi production is actually very amusing. I am not totally sure what group this film aims at. The kids as main characters give the film too much of a teen-feel to me, but the story is relatively complex. Still there is an environmental message for the next generation, so perhaps adolenscents?

A boy and a girl both meet a little girl from the future. The little girl is recruting for something which proves to be a task for the future to prevent something from happening. The little girl’s ways are elusive, strange and elaborate. All this results in an adventure in which George Clooney with his fellow travellers set out to fix the future. This is packed in a descent story and told with a lot of humour, action and a couple of things to think about.

Not bad for a Disney film.

Ah yes, the film is also known under the title “Project T”.

Wicker weekend

Last weekend I saw both Wicker Man films, the 1973 original and the 2006 remake and I just see that I ‘blogged’ about these films before.

Nicholas Winding weekend

Last weekend I have rewatched both “Drive” (2011) and “Only God Forgives” (2013). The films are very similar, yet very different. Both have Ryan Gosling as poker-faced main character. In both films Goslings character is involved in illegal activities, but does not really seem to want to. Of course, both films are slow and minimalistic. [...]

No blog

A “blog” with one entry every two years, that is quite cool, is it not?

It has been a couple of years since I added “blogs” to the different sections so I could share information other than reviews. Looking back, I am not entirely sure what kind of information I had in mind. I [...]

Fantasy bombast

During two airplaneflights I have killed some time watching to fantasy spectacles. First the lauded “Avatar”, second the first “Hobbit”. I did not expect “Avatar” to be some sort of “Matrix”, but the famous blue characters inhabit some sort of ‘inbetweenworld’ that men can only come using some sort of machine. The film is an [...]
