Ruby Tomorrowland Pin

“Imagine a place where nothing is impossible”

I knew I was going to like Tomorrowland, but I had no idea how much it was going to mean to me.

Some people have been saying this movie will only appeal to Disney fans, but I don’t think that’s the case. Disney fans will get the nostalgic feeling of the scene at the World’s Fair more than others. When they hear “There’s a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow” playing they’ll be holding in the urge to sing along. And, the fact that the film perfectly captures the spirit and vision of Walt Disney’s philosophy will bring a tear to their eye. However, those things will take nothing away from the regular movie goers experience. Besides these few things (and the title of the film), this movie has nothing to do with DisneyTomorrowland is a completely original concept created by Brad Bird, Damon Lindelof & Jeff Jensen, and to me to it’s ingenious and amazingly creative. But, reviewers have been absolutely killing this film, and it’s not making the profits it deserves. If you’re reading this and haven’t seen it yet, please see it – multiple times if you enjoy it. The fact that people aren’t giving it a chance just isn’t fair, and if you still aren’t completely convinced to see this movie, I’ll tell you why you should be.

In my opinion, great movies are ones that entertain you, inspire you and make you think. Tomorrowland did all three of those things.  But, the most important thing about this movie is the moral. We get what we put out there. “There are two wolves always fighting. Darkness and despair and light and hope. Which one wins?…Whichever one you feed” Those words are the drive of the whole movie. YOU have complete control of the way you want to feel. YOU have the power to change anything, so why not do something positive? Sometimes we don’t think or understand that all the actions we take have consequences, even little ones. This film reminds us that we have to take responsibility for our mistakes and fix them because later it can have a big impact. Most of the time, saying is a lot easier than doing, so we must work extra hard to be better. What really sells this message is the speech Hugh Laurie’s character gives, even though he’s sort of yelling at the world. You really can’t help but think about what he said. Frank (George Clooney) is also right for saying “The future is scary”, because thinking about it can be! But, if we do our best in everything we do, believe in it and have faith, then it doesn’t have to be scary.

Like I said in the beginning, Tomorrowland included all three things I think are necessary in a great film, and it exceeded all my expectations (which were very high!). I am now, more than ever, sure that if I put hard work, passion and imagination into anything, I can do it. I feel like everybody should see this movie, it’s very important, and I think Walt Disney would absolutely agree!

So in conclusion, YES, I already have a pin of my own and will be wearing it the next time I ride “it’s a small world… Just in case.

    Great post! I whole-heartedly agree – Tomorrowland was a great film and everyone should see it! Thanks for reminding me to get my Tomorrowland pin BEFORE we ride its a small world on our upcoming trip! 😉

    Ruby, thank you for your awesome review. I totally agree with you. I thoroughly enjoyed Tomorrowland; it was not only entertaining, it was inspiring. I am jealous you have a pin – I must get one before my trip in November for the hope that something amazing will happen as I ride It’s a Small World!

    I totally agree with everything you said here! Of course, I had my own post on the film over at Everyday Disney, but as I said there, I think I love this film a little more every single day, and I have a feeling a trip to see it a second time is in my near future. Tomorrowland offered something that we don’t see a lot: originality. That’s crucial in a world filled with sequels. It’s terrible to see such a wonderful film put down because it’s not what the public wants. Little does anyone realize that this is the exact film the public NEEDS. Regardless, I too loved Tomorrowland and you’d better believe I’ll have my pin on the next time I travel on It’s a Small World too!

    Brilliantly said! You have a beautiful perception of things and seem to be exactly one of the “Dreamers”! We just saw it yesterday and I know my 13 yr old came away with the same hope, joy, dreams you did! Thank you for such a great, well written blog!

    Ruby – great blog post! You make lots of excellent points. I’m planning to see this movie a second time in the theater. And by the way, I was one of those fans who was holding back the urge to sing.

    Well done Ruby!! Our job is to set an example and others will follow. This Fall as I enter my college classroom and teach technology this idea will be woven throughout my course. Dreams and passion move us forward to do great things.
