Review: “Tomorrowland” Feels Like Yesterdayland

Excerpt: Like many of Disney’s older rides (a la It’s A Small World), Tomorrowland is full of visual pleasures and sweet sounding platitudes, but ultimately you know it’s an innocuous attraction. Usually halfway through the ride you find yourself bored and ready to get off. You can’t. You’re trapped with nowhere to escape to and you are forced to endure this ride, whose uplifting message has just been soured by your inescapable experience on the ride. The only way to save yourself is to not get on it to begin with. Welcome to Tomorrowland.

RATING: ★★★★★ (5/10 stars)
