    TRON

    Awesome flick; totally recommend, especially at IMAX. Olivia Wilde is hot. That is all.

    Go Cyclones.

    Tron is an absolute abomination of a good film.

    Re: TRON

    Olivia Wilde in spandex would be the only reason to see this.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Re: TRON

    I never saw the original, does that matter at all? Is this a sequel, remake, prequel, or what?


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    Re: TRON

    I had some questions about this. I had never seen the original, but the release of this one has sparked some interest for me with it looking really cool, having Jeff Bridges in it, and sounds like a unique story. The only problem I am having is convincing the girlfriend to go. She says that she has no idea what its about so she isnt interested. Can someone give me a brief rundown of the plot of the movie (without spoiling anything of course) because I know very little about the Tron movies.

    Hey do you think Tron from Wilson Toyota of Ames got his name from this movie?

    Re: TRON

    It is a sequel. According to the reviews, it is better. I saw the 1982 version a couple of times and it was not outstanding. Our kids are hardcore gamers, so we are going today. I am hoping for good special effects - this will be my 2nd 3D movie. It's cold and I'm done shopping so what the heck, this will get me out of the house.

    Re: TRON

    It's a sequel, main character is the son of the protagonist from the 1st one.

    I am usually not a fan of remakes, but in this case I'm all for it. two movies I have been saying for a long time I wished were remade (due to better effects doing them better justice) were Tron and Dune.

    The special effects in the original Dune were top-notch. That's not what held it back. What made it awful is that David Lynch went off the deep end and made it totally different than the book.

    Re: TRON

    It has a sweet soundtrack!

    I haven't seen the movie though... I just heard Daft Punk was doing the entire soundtrack and had to get some of the music.

    Daft Punk even makes a cameo in the movie, pretty sweet!

    I doubt they reveal themselves though... not that it matters all that much, they make good music and that's all I'm concerned with!

    Re: TRON

    I wanted this movie to be better than it was. It was pretty good, but unfortunately not the amazing movie I wanted to see. Pretty good story, like the first movie, but not as much action as I had wanted.

    Not to worry, they left it open for the sequel. The IMAX 3D was good, but not amazing. Glad I saw it in the IMAX, but if I go again (not likely) I will just see it in a regular theater.

    I liked it. I would give it a B, but it had the potential to be an A+.

    Re: TRON

    What the what was that?

    Visually its pretty cool, but I was expecting Avatar 3D visuals and feel like I got The Sorcerer's Apprentice. The plot doesn't make a ton of sense and I can see the soundtrack being really cool if your into techno/gamer music, but its not my cup of tea. It was a good way to spend an afternoon and serves its purpose by entertaining, but its kind of just blah.

    This wasn't the new Jeff Bridges' movie I really want to see anyway, Rooster.

    If you don't like trance music and video games you aren't American imo...
