    A wretched hive of scum and villainy.
    That intro was pure 80s gold!

    I enjoyed the first Tron and am looking forward to the second, but I agree with you 100%.

    Outside of the nerd demographic (and possibly the people who love 80s movies demographic) I don't see it appealing to anyone and being a pretty big flop at the box office.

    I'm surprised Disney was even willing to greenlight a sequel that cost so much money, much less have all this talk of a trilogy and TV shows.

    Am I the only one who thinks that looked great? I mean it was 80's all the way but the car changing to a helicopter. Pretty good for the time.

    A lot of people thought AVATAR would flop hard.
    The public has had almost 30 years to appreciate the original, so I think it'll at least make quite a bit more at the box office this time around.
    This is gonna be a feast for the senses, and people are drawn to that, even the ones who never heard of the original (which is doing pretty well on Amazon)

    I haven't-I used to watch this show all of the time, and although now I know it's meh, at the time it was great for my 15-year old self to see something like Tron on TV. I can't believe people like this guy named CaptainBuckRogers on YouTube who love it and want it to be on DVD and Blu-Ray DVD and who also think it's better than anything on TV now::wtf::rofl:
