The original Tron (I thought it was late 70s) was excellent and ahead of its time, kind of like Blade Runner but not quite so great. I haven't seen the new one but I think I will tonight since I have heard several positive comments, including yours.
Yeah, its worth checking out. The music is excellent, and there are a lot of nods to the original there. Flynn, Bradley, Clu, and Tron all have major roles. We even see Dillinger's son for a few moments. The growth of 'The Grid' is cool, and a lot of the old programs designed by Flynn are still there, though they too have evolved since the events in the first film.
Olivia Wilde is sexy as shit in the movie as well.
Now that I think about it, Tron was kind of a latter day digital Fantastic Voyage. If you haven't seen Blade Runner or Fantastic Voyage, they are worth checking out.
You are correct. Tron was a 1982 flick (same vintage as Blade Runner).
Haven't seen Fantastic Voyage
, but I've seen Blade Runner
in most of its incarnations.
I'm gonna do a Planet of the Apes
marathon next, I think. I remember very little about those movies, with the exception of some key scenes such as Heston's discovery of the Statue of Liberty at the end of the first one.
