the teaser was so badass in that we have the possibility of transcending the perception that this movie has to be a "kids" film. Please at least aim this a notch above the Transformers crowd. <BR> I'm hoping against hope that if you wait 25 years to make a sequel/remake of a movie, you'll bother to get a good script just because why bother making it if you're not going to go the whole nine yards and do it justice. It is a fan favorite movie, it wasn't a box office success, so there's no risk in never going back there. <BR><BR> Keeping fingers crossed.

I think it's a minor miracle that they managed to get this picture up and running to begin with. There were various rumbling over the years that there was a TRON sequel in the works but until now nothing ever came of it. And at the risk of pissing Dickblood off, I think that this fiulm has some true potential. I llok at it this way. I don't know how that story will rate, but the special effects in the original TRON were breathtaking at the time. So imagine if you will how this film will look with the visual technology that the filmmakers have at their beck and call today. This film is going to be one sweet piece of eye candy!

And the sequel will stand on its own. They won't expect you to have seen the original. This movie has huge potential to be a wide-scale massive hit, showing us things we've never seen before. It won't be Watchmen II, count on it.

Sure, parts of the original don't hold up: the arcade game(s) Flynn was playing; the cartoon "vortex" scene; the big 2-legged thing, whatever it was called, that Flynn was flying around in, that whole sequence, just to name a couple; and a bunch more. But there's so much more that does hold up: the arena; the disc fights; Dillinger's touch screen still looks cool; lightcycles; and the great last scene, helicopter in city lights, to Wendy Carlos' end credit tune. Bring on the sequel.

It invented cyberspace. Tron came out in 1982, the same year that William Gibson first used the term cyberspace in his short story "Burning Chrome." It wasn't until 1984 that "Neuromancer" was published. Gibson is widely and correctly acknowledged for his work's impact on science fiction and the wider culture. And yet by the time Neuromancer came out, we had already seen a feature film that depicted cyberspace, avatars, black ice, helpful and malevolent AIs, visual representation of underlying code-based processes... all in a style that must have made Moebius cream his baby blue corduroys. Nothing before or since has looked quite like Tron. No discussion of that type of science fiction should ever include Snow Crash, Neuromancer, or (God help us) Tad Williams' Otherland without also including Tron. In this respect the sequel is very unlikely to live up to the original, but it could easily manage to be a more entertaining movie than its predecessor was. Let's hope so!
April 19, 2009, 2:23 p.m. CST
Watchmen was a disappointment to me as well; it left me cold. I think the level of disappointment one feels, though, towards a movie rendition/sequel depends on when he or she sees the original. Indiana Jones 1 & 2 I saw as a kid, loved them beyond words; they became a part of who I was, growing up. 4 was going to an escape, for me, just for 2 hours, back into that magic. I mean I can't remember being more psyched to see a movie - ever. And what did I get? A piss-poor concept that didn't even mesh with the first 3, a poorly written script, and lazy, half-hearted directing. A crushing disappointment. So I jabbed two American greats, yeah, but damn if they don't deserve one for IJ4.<p>Didn't read Watchmen till about a year before the film came out; loved it. Now if I'd read it earlier in life it's possible the movie would've been more of a disappointment than IJ4. Dunno. At least with the Watchmen movie you get the feeling a lot of effort went into it, even if, as I said, it leaves you cold. Just didn't see that effort in IJ4.

I cannot agree more. If Quint can ever do anything to turn me off his opinions, it's his constant prequel-bashing. To what effect? All it does is piss people off; does he seriously think people will flock to him because of that view, even if they agree with him?
April 19, 2009, 6:46 p.m. CST
I agree on the Gibson thing (though Gibson's envisioning was of the actual Internet, whereas TRON is basically representative of one computer system). However, there's one point where I'm gonna have to call you out on: Moebius actually designed a lot of the characters/costumes based on Lisberger's original concepts, along with Syd Mead. Basically, from the late Seventies until the end of the Eighties (even longer, if you want to include FIFTH ELEMENT and STRANGE DAYS), Moebius, Syd Mead and Ralph McQuarrie designed pretty much every major sci-fi movie.

uniquely beautiful, and they sneaked in some deep themes into it's zen, serenely paced plot. I'm looking forward to this, but am dismayed that it's about the babies.

The error, in that one, didn't lie with bad dialogue, but the plot as a whole.

And she didn't exactly add much to the plot in the first one, both in the real world and in the tron reality. No loss if she's not in the sequel

Or did they send him to prison for hacking into Flynn's account?
April 20, 2009, 2:39 a.m. CST
Why must it only be young starlets & old guys in new movies? Can't a smart older woman come back & kick some ass? She's a wonderful person & still looks great for her age. Bruce isn't exactly the stud he used to be either. If Bruce/Jeff had any heart they'd insist that she at least have a talking role in the movie if nothing else. Plus, why wouldn't they want to help out a fellow actor/friend? She would LOVE to be a continuing part of TRON in some way. She had a small role in the videogame a few years ago. A fellow Cindy Morgan fan, Julie Sigler got it right.. "...It was Lora who made the laser. It was Lora who decided to go see Flynn because she figured it was probably him hacking into the system. It was Yori who programmed the solar sailor. She wasn't just a throwaway female love interest character, and I'm upset that she seems to be treated as such. She deserves to be in the sequel. Plus, in my own personal canon, Alan and Lora got married, and Tron and Yori are still fighting side by side."

You can have your fantasy of being Harrison Ford...the man has done more bad movies than good (althought the good ones are pretty fuckin hefty). Starman, Baker Boys, Tucker, Fisher King...Lebowski...sheyacht! Even Against All Odds was pretty sweet (plus the Phil Collins song from that flick...I got a lot of 'tang to that one).

April 20, 2009, 8:10 p.m. CST
Your post is absolutely spot on. I frequently tell people that Tron was the first depiction of what would eventually be called Cyberspace. Tron was so far ahead of its time that most people didn't know what to make of it. (Kids probably adapted to its world much more easily than adults.) I remember seeing it come out on VHS in a Disney kids' collection, and read it described frequently as "a fantasy about a man trapped in a computer game", and would think, "Fuck, you people seriously have NO understanding of this movie". (In Disney's case, their OWN movie.) <p> So many great things in it...especially the nested world concept, wherein the programs regard the users as gods (whose existence is questioned), and the between-the-lines fact that time passes much, much more quickly in the cyber world than in our world. All that on TOP of the revolutionary effects and utterly alien world depicted. A landmark piece of cinema.
