The summer movie season is under way, and while it’s traditionally a time for blockbusters – which can be fun or just annoying – there are a few other more complex movies in the mix, as well as some locally made films.
Tomorrowland, a sci-fi drama with George Clooney, was directed by Brad Bird, best known for the Pixar cartoons The Incredibles and Ratatouille. Clooney plays a former boy-genius inventor who teams up with a teenage girl fascinated by science to try to find an alternate universe and save this one. It certainly has great special effects, and Clooney is always watchable. It opens this week.
