Tron Legacy 3D


TRON is back! I went to the midnight premiere with a group of users and programs. It was definitely another Vampire Mode occasion, hence the menacing glowing eyes. Here is my personal 10 bullet review.
  1. When the Journey song plays in the Flynn's Arcade jukebox – and Sweet dreams are made of these – you know it's time to go inside the machine.
  2. Light bikes are still rad. I want one under my Christmas tree.
  3. In like Flynn - Jeff Bridges / Kevin is the Zen man, man - the Dude abides off the grid - "it's bio-digital jazz, man" – "knockin' on the sky, listenin' to the sound...."
  4. The Grid is a lost private isLANd full of monsters and perfection.
  5. Zeus is zany fun, Gem is d-a-n-g-e-r-o-u-s.
  6. Tron has a black heart after 20 years on the Grid. Why did Alan stop programming Tron? Why didn't Kevin and Alan work together on the digital frontier?
  7. "Sometimes the only way to win is not to play" – Kevin Flynn to Sam, eh Wargames much?
  8. CLU has a mainframe state of mind. What if CLU got a clue and discovered access to the Internets? Game over. EOL.
  9. Quorra like all new life is beautiful to behold. Quorra is the one, last hope for ... something something new techno meaning of life. A User born on the Grid tranferred to the real world? What is the meaning of life? Metaphors about life and living free and open vs control inside the computer circuits. Users and Programs and alternative digital frontiers – oh my. Turns the notion of the other side of the screen inside out.
  10. Great fun for all ages, concepts in a very strikingly pretty 3D world. Go see it, again.
  11. BONUS: Harder, better, faster, stronger – Daft Punk is the deal! Charge it, point it, zoom it, press it, snap it, work it, quick - erase it, Plug it, play it, burn it, rip it – technologic it.
