    Later complained of soundtrack. Not enough 90's rap. I agreed, but didn't think it was pertinent to the review.

    its silly environmental guilting. It was absolutely awful. Also sound has never made that much of a difference to me in movies.

    There's clearly something in the water out there in Pixar-World.

    Wall*E, Cars 2, and now this.. it's all the same crap: pay ten bucks to go be lectured by a bunch of ignorant idealogues, under the guise of 'entertainment'. It's especially insidious that it is primarily aimed at children.

    It's a shame too, because there ARE things I liked about Tomorrowland, as well as the other movies mentioned above. Unfortunately, the taint they were pushing poisons the whole experience for me.

    It is Disney. Moralizing is kind of their thing.

    What exactly is insidious about teaching our children to cherish the earth and want to protect and preserve it?

    Seems like the best time to teach this type of stewardship and responsibility is when someone is young.

    Supposedly it's amazing sound, dolby atmos surround sound with speakers above you.

    When it says best picture, he meant picture quality.

    They are using laser projection at these specific theaters.

    Not picture meaning Oscars

    Cool. I actually went to the tomorrow land attraction at disney.
    It's an old chucky cheese robots acting out different eras show.
    Can't believe they made that into a movie.

    a lot of theaters have 4k projections and at least here in LA there are a bunch equipped with Atmos - how is it different from these Dolby theaters? the type of 4k projection?

    Check the link out. It's got HDR contrast and increased color space. Laser projection, different from regular projection.

    It's at the el captain theater in Hollywood.

    It's like in your hood

    ugh im tired of nanny state liberals keep brainwashing us to care about our planet and her environment. like get a job so you can afford to buy more environments and earths instead of taking other people's hard earned money to maintain this old one. if ppl want to save the trees, they will vote with their dollars. let the free market decide. its better for our kids to watch cartoons like gi joe.

    In the 1980's the "message" movies were about saving whales and avoiding nuclear holocaust. How about just avoid the message pushing entirely and focus on making a good movie.
