    I've been trying to watch this movie for a while now, but I've been having some computer troubles, and all it took for me to watch the movie was to go to the other side of the States and use my Grandpa's computer. Which, by the way, is probably the fastest home computer in America. Back to the movie, I thought it was great! The plot was ok, and the humor actually made me chuckle, which is really saying something. I personally think they could have expanded the game grid part a little longer, as it only seemed to last 10 minutes. The special effects were pretty cool too. Oh yeah I almost forgot, this movie basically freakin' pioneered 3D animation. I'm gonna give it a 4 out of 5 stars. :D

    It's been years since I last saw the original Tron. I should really find a way to watch it again, before I see the new one.

    Watched it years ago & found it extreemly boring. This was back when CG wasn't common so the CG created world should have made it more interesting. It didn't. Thus, I have no desire to see Tron 2.

    You've been kind. I was expecting some bashing about how corny it was.

    Little known fact.... Disney didn't actually come up with Tron. It was a little independent production studio that created Animalympics and was orignally concieved of as an animated film. When the animators started to leave, the project was shoped over to Disney.

    Watch it last night again. It has been since before the announcement of Legacy, so I never realized that certain things about Legacy are mentioned in TRON, such as Clu's name. I forgot he had a name (and that he was orange).

    Edit: Special thanks to my buddy, Smasher for sending me a random Tron disc in the mail, lol

    Well, if you have a taste for TRON, maybe you'd be interested in checking out the FLYNN LIVES! ARG (Alternate Reality Game)? )Takes place in 'the real world'... All of it leads up to the premier of the movie (like how they did an 'Encom Press Conference' with Alan Bradley (Bruce Boxleitner) at the SDCC last year).

    Solve puzzles and get some ARG swag (I've got a personalized Encom employee name badge, exclusive poster, an "89" pin (the year Kevin Flynn disapeared), among other items)...
