Upon reflection, it turns out I've been looking forward to Tomorrowland more than I've been looking forward to any actual tomorrows.

I give some thought to how well Bird and Lindelof succeed in getting us to believe in that Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow in my review for Jim Freund's Hour of the Wolf.
