TRON: Legacy - Review and Grading

I just returned a short while ago from the grid. Tremendous film visually, stepping things up to a more ominous nature than before. There aspects of the story which seemed rather muddled, but not too much. Olivia Wilde was reasonably used in this, with only a couple of "beauty shots" which were not gratuitously distracting. And as I've mentioned elsewhere... Bruce Boxleitner gets a nice part in this movie, something I was hoping for. He strikes me as a good actor... and a good man.

Other thoughts?

I saw TRON for the first time a few days ago and I'm looking forward to this.

One point... this particular sneak preview happened to be in 3D. While it was alright, and made a few scenes more fun ... don't bother with it. Save your money and go to a regular presentation

I went to the 3D session earlier in the day. Very enjoyable. As this the first film, I've ever seen in 3D, kinder felt a little disappointed by the 3D aspects. The soundtrack by Daft Punk rocked.

Re: TRON: Legacy - Review and Grading

Neroon, tell me one thing about the film:


I've been impatiently waiting for this film for longer than I can remember and hopefully that wait will end on Friday or this weekend at worst.

This was going to be my first 3D movie, but i think i will give it a miss now, sad to hear people say just go for the normal version.

Re: TRON: Legacy - Review and Grading

The 3D is decently executed and enjoyable, don't get me wrong on that. It's simply that I felt it wasn't worth the extra ducats you'd have to shell out to see that version.

I'm not surprised. 3D sucks.

(I guess it's worth giving a try. But I'll never willingly go to a 3D film again. The offender? Avatar, widely considered the best use of 3D of all time.)

Re: TRON: Legacy - Review and Grading

Avatar was superb in 3D. You really got the feeling you were "in" the movie-space. James Cameron devoted a tremendous amount of effort and resources to "get it right". I've not seen other 3D movies, but from the testimonies of my friends who have seen them, they all pale in comparison to Avatar. Thanks for the heads up on this, wee free king. I was going to see Tron Legacy in 3D, but now I'm not...

Speaking of 3D, I thought it real folly for TV manufacturers to build in 3D functionality to flat screens. The effects are seriously lacking for that scale. You need a huge screen to really get a feel for it. Thus, I could see TV projectors using the technology... that makes sense. In any case, I'm in the market for a flat screen TV and with the general public feeling the need for 3D, that makes the ones offering only 2D go down in value to make them more affordable.

Re: TRON: Legacy - Review and Grading

I saw it at a Variety screening at Skywalker Ranch on Monday, and there was a Q&A with the director afterwards. The film is pretty to look at, but the story isn't much of anything at all.

Just like the original.

And cool opportunity there, DS9Sega

Re: TRON: Legacy - Review and Grading

I'd give the film 8 out of 10. Yeah, it's not too taxing as far as storylines go, but I don't see why that's such a big deal. Half of the more 'complicated' films these days are mostly filled with busy air, not amounting to much anyway.

I liked what I saw, I liked what I heard, it kept my interest, and I'll buy it when it comes out.
