"The only reason we came to see it was because my wife read it in high school."

Thus spake, within earshot of my wife, a disgruntled viewer unimpressed with the dose of literary culture he had just been so eloquently dealt by director Thomas Vinterberg's adaptation of Thomas Hardy's "Far From the Madding Crowd."

Filmmaker Brad Bird's "Tomorrowland," although considerably high-minded, is a convoluted and rambling adventure-mystery bereft of truly enchanting vision and long on sermon.
