‘Tomorrowland’ times two
Rick McGinnis writes:
There is, to be sure, a great film – still unmade – about our loss of faith in a better world we imagined so fervently in the shadow of two world wars. But a new kind of faith – the gospel of Green and all of its logic-busting assumptions – has clouded reason and, almost like collateral damage, ruined what could have been a great little film about wonder and optimism and scientific inspiration.
Perhaps it’s no great loss that yet another film has been spoiled, but the same logical self-sabotage is crippling scientific education and public discourse, and as long as it persists we’ll continue moving into the future, one step forward and two steps back.
Ed Driscoll adds:
Since Clooney and Disney’s corporate management apparently believes that “global warming” and other “vapid capitalistic things are ruining us all,” but lack the conviction to eliminate their carbon footprints by shutting down down their theme parks and ceasing production of $190 million dollar movies, then the next best thing would be to shun their products until the corporation ceases “shaming” its customers.
