Yes... because sequels are always separate entities.

Yea, I say you shouldn't be so lost that you can't enjoy the sequel, but, of course a sequel should have some harkening back to it's original, without having to retread the same ground in too much detail.

Re: TRON: Legacy - Review and Grading

I would still watch "Tron" even if someone told you that it was boring. You will get a better sense of the origins of the Tron-Verse if you do watch it. At least I think so. While the second movie works as a stand alone sequel, it was made for the larger Tron audience after all.

I was thinking of watching the first movie but was told it was dated and boring. Also, I shouldn't need to watch the first to understand the second, and the difference between programs and ISOs should be easily seen from what they do onscreen. I never saw anything convincing onscreen. Explanations after the fact don't count - if it's not on screen, it's not part of the story.
Really? Because I thought it was pretty clear in the movie that the ISOs were something different and they came from the Grid itself. Flynn pretty much SAYS that.





The difference is that programs have static source code that cannot evolve. They can only do what their code allows them to.
That was never dramatized in the movie. Quorra was never shown to be X and become Y, whereas programs tried to become Y and failed.

Just another example of how inept that movie was.
Yeah... if only that were true.

The programs did their tasks as told.
And went to night clubs. And sporting events. Basically there was no distinction between them and real people other than they liked to wear light bright clothing.

Sigh...this movie missed all of its potential.

As Cartman explained, everyone has a soul.


Except gingers.

get the cd. there is also an album of remixes...its not as good as the soundtrack, but still worth checking out.
I'm not a huge fan of movie scores and this one doesn't even seem to consist of full pieces of music, so I decided to just buy the five tracks I most fancied off iTunes instead. I've been listening to them over and over again for the past three hours. I really need to get my own copy of the DVD and re-purchase the Wii game...

^I love the score, though I would call it "Daft Punk inspired" rather than Daft Punk's. Especially after reading the insert that came with the CD.

Re: TRON: Legacy - Review and Grading

There is allegedly a "Tron Legacy Complete" score out there, was originally supposed to come out in two months but it got canceled as part of a package that included a vinyl copy.
