    I felt that Tron Legacy and the original Tron were very different movies not only in terms of the obvious (some new actors, different director, different special effects) but when it came to plot and storyline. I also like Tron Legacy a bit more just because it has heart and soul, something that the first Tron was kind of lacking.

    Didn't they? It's basically the same plot, with similar characters, only different motivations.

    Something like that. And it's a good thing. I love both films.

    Looks like a sequel is a go, although the bitches seem to have no intention of continuing the (excellent) animated show.

    That's pretty much what I liked about it.

    I don't know that the "story" actually even registered while I was watching it.

    As an audio-visual experience, it was pretty freakin' cool.

    So the RedLetterMedia guys did a piece on Tron and Tron Legacy... and i think I finally have clarity on why a lot of MC liked this movie so much. In retrospect, with Kosinski's take on Oblivion, I really like his visual eye. Makes me hopeful for Top Gun.

    I love Tron Legacy. The animated show they could have touched upon more because it's a fascinating piece. I recommend it to everyone who hasn't seen it.

    It's so much better than the trailer paints it to be.

    Oblivion is a bit derivative from what I recall, but still capable to surprise. The soundtrack is really something else.
    Only the Brave is was very engaging. He was going to reboot The Black Hole at one point.

    As a fan of the original Tron, it hurts to hear Jay and Jack call it "ugly." Is that a common view? Because I think it looks amazing.

    I also appreciate the early scenes in the computer world, because as a kid, the only "boring" parts of the movie were the live action parts, so it was nice to get a few sneak peaks of the grid before Jeff Bridges goes there.

    Both Tron films look great.

    It does not hold up. When I compare that movie to other movies from it's era... it's shocking. They bring up Blade Runner which holds up wonderfully. But Tron looks so... flat.

    I'm not saying it "holds up." I'm saying it's not ugly.

    I also don't think the Blade Runner comparison is particularly apt. The two movies have very different goals. Blade Runner is set in the "real world," so its effects are realistic. Tron is set in another world, and I think it looks appropriately otherworldly. I was disappointed when Tron Legacy looked basically like Blade Runner.

    I'm still blown away about the special effects of the original Tron. Its just a lot more talky than T:L for me. I'm sure I've said it before, but Tron is 90 minutes that feels like 2 and a half hours, and Legacy is 2 and a half hours that feels like 90 minutes. Still really appreciate Tron for paving the way, but that sequel is my jam.
