I was sent on an all expense press trip by Disney to cover the premier of the movie Tomorrowland. All opinions are 100% my own.
A couple of weeks ago, I got to sit with 24 other bloggers to watch the movie Tomorrowland. I have been on pins and needles having to keep quiet about what I thought of this movie, but the day is finally here and I can share with you what I think!
From the very moment this film started, I was mesmerized. In a world where violence is SO rampant in every single movie and show that you see, it was a breath of fresh air to watch a movie telling the world that there is a place to imagine and dream where NOTHING is impossible.
I watched with excitement as Casey Newton took the screen, believing in a world of hope and dreamers. Her way of thinking is one like we need in this world filled with gloom and doom.
I think the reason that I loved her character SO much, is because I am a lot like here. I have always been an optimistic person. When someone says you can't do that because something bad will happen, my answer has always been — but what if nothing bad does happen? What would happen?
I try to see the best in people and her character really portrayed that in every aspect.
Another thing that I loved about this movie is George's character — Frank Walker. I loved how it portrayed him as an old grumpy man, and yet somehow, this young girl and her optimism for the future changed his behavior. It's amazing how we have the ability to change the future.
So the overall theme of the film is can we fix it?
After the movie was over, it left me questioning my own actions in the world I live in. I started wondering, am I doing enough? Am I saying enough? Am I making a difference? If all I am doing is sitting on the sidelines doing nothing, then NO I am not. This movie inspired me to truly BE a part of this world I live in.
I work with teenagers everyday and I hear their stories of gloom and doom and it's MY job to give them a glimmer of hope for the future. I have been given a wonderful task of sharing with them that this world is more than just wars and angry violent people.
So — Brad Bird and Damon Lindelof — you got what you were hoping for out of this movie. Even two weeks later, I am still thinking about positive change and what I can do in this world to make it a better place — so thank you for making such a wonderful film about a positive future.
