I just wanted Tomorrowland to be a place that had big ideas and was visually breathtaking. Overall the world itself was just okay and all the early things on earth were the best part.

As the film goes on you become more attached to the characters, and will most likely be devastated yet filled with emotion at the end. As the credits rolled and the music played, I got goosebumps and contemplated how it must feel inside the body of an addict.… Full Review »

I suppose Mel Brooks did a good job in the movie, but that can't cover up the fact that I only laughed twice, and I forgot nearly all the jokes afterwords. I suppose if you liked the first movie, you should see this, but otherwise it would be better to spend your money somewhere else (or just see another movie).… Full Review »

After watching this film I justWithout a doubt one of the most beautiful, thought provoking and devastating movies to ever grace the screen. After watching this film I just couldn't get over it. This masterpiece contains such beautiful acting that you can feel every inch of emotion poured into this film by Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal. The cinematography is wonderful and the scenery of this film takes my breath away. I can't forget the soundtrack, beautifully composed by Gustavo Santaolalla, the music still haunts me to this day but I am thankful for it. Literally everything about this masterpiece from the brilliant Ang Lee is spectacular. DON'T miss out on this angelic film.… Full Review »
This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. The film encounters problems that many low-budget films do, so some of that is excusable. The only two things that bothered me was the reveal of the father's death. Revealing it so early made the tension between the mother and son feel repetitive, had they saved the reveal for maybe 50 minutes in, it would've given everything that was happening between mother and son new context and made the film more interesting.
My only other issue is the child acting, sure Noah Wiseman is better than most child actors, but that does not mean his performance didn't suck me out of the movie every now and then.
But I have no other complaints. Essie Davis is amazing, it has great photography and the atmosphere is thick. Despite it's problems, Jennifer Kent's directorial debut is quite impressive and I hope she is able to work on more projects soon.… Full Review »
