  • Disney’s “Tomorrowland” asks what happened to our culture’s optimistic attitudes toward the future. The film’s lack of consideration for its audience is coupled with a plot that only begins to reveal itself well past the halfway point of the film.

    Call Me A Cynic, But “Tomorrowland”’s Future Isn’t Bright I can’t say where our culture’s current obsession with dystopian fantasies originated, whether it is a response to our doomsday news media or something far more innocuous, but it has become a dominating...

    How do you choose your goals? It’s about balance. As we grow older, our...
