Tron 2 was lame. Tron 1 was amazingly inventive and revolutionary. It sparked many a nerdy conversation and left you thinking about deeper issues. Tron 2 was an action movie with lots of neon

The first one was like my favorite movie ever as a kid.

The second one was a really cool Daft Punk music video.

I have no interest in a third.

I disagree:

Tron 2.0 was an enjoyable, even if not innovative, first-person shooter with a storyline that was faithful to its source material.

Tron Legacy was an action movie written with little regard for an understanding computer science. The only real reference to computer terminology was use of the word "primitives", and I am uncertain as to whether that was an intentional reference.

I wouldn't go so far as to call it lame. No, it wasn't as revolutionary as the original was, but it was a fun flick. Plus, Olivia Wilde and Beau Garrett in skin tight suits. Count me in for Tron 3, just bring back Quorra.

Disney recently updated the Test Track ride at epcot. The new version is pretty much TRON without calling it tron. I dont like the new version, little to bland but it makes me wonder if a light cycle ride wouldn't kick at least 3 kinds of ass.

Tron seemed to me like a classic example of a movie written by committee. There were some interesting ideas in there but none of them were explored very thoroughly or very well because they tried to do a bit of every thing. Instead of a cohesive story we got the poor bastard child of multiple idea people.
 
2012-12-14 10:04:27 AM  
The second Tron movie sucked donkey balls, like they tried to make it all Matrix-y and failed miserably. It showed a complete lack of imagination and creativity. The original at least had that.
 
2012-12-14 10:04:46 AM  
I heard a lot of negative things about it, so I didn't bother seeing it for a while. When I finally did, I was surprised that I enjoyed it. Maybe it was lowered expectations, but it was cool.

I'm not sure why the bonus material from the Blu ray version was cut from the film, though; it made me immediately want a sequel.

Dillinger, Jr. should be a fun storyline. Especially if the old man makes a cameo.

Tron Legacy was the better of the two. Sorry. It's one of those films that if I flip across it on TV, I invariably find myself watching it through. The original is interesting, but just not as fun.

And as has been pointed out, Olivia Wilde + Daft Punk = so much farking win it's painful.

The All-Powerful Atheismo: Dimensio:
Tron Legacy was an action movie written with little regard for an understanding computer science.

Uh when was the last time you saw the first one? It has just as little regard


The first movie incorporated some basic understanding of computer technology and use at the time. Given general public understanding of computers, and given the writer's inexperience with computer systems, the result was acceptable. It created a sufficient framework for the writers of Tron 2.0 to build a more comprehensive universe created with a deeper understanding of computer systems and updated to technology of the era.

Tron Legacy made no effort to relate its "computer" world to reality. The "system" of the original Tron was a corporate mainframe and thus served the purpose that would be served by a mainframe. Programs in Tron had been written with definable purpose; Peter Jurasik's minor character was an actuaries calculator, Tron was a security application and Master Control had originally been written as a chess program. While the original purpose of every program was not known, enough initial background was provided to create a reason for a viewer to assume that a purpose for every program did exist, even if it was not stated.

In Tron Legay, the "system" had no tangible purpose; at no time was I able to discern Kevin Flynn's "purpose" for attempting to create a "perfect system". I inferred that he planned to relate the system to life in the real world somehow, but how this relationship would ever be established was never defined. I also never understood the purpose of any program within the system; whether Tron maintained his original purpose of being a security program or whether he took on a new purpose was never stated, and I never understood what purpose CLU was intended to serve apart from being an assistant of some sort to Kevin Flynn -- but without knowing what Flynn himself had intended to accomplish with his "system", I cannot even guess as to the means by which CLU would assist. No other purpose of any other program was stated or suggested either; the function of, as an example, Zeus/Castor was never defined nor implied.

Tron at least attempted to explore the concept of a world within a computer system. Tron Legacy made no effort to retain adherence to that concept; the computer world of Tron Legacy is at best an artifact of its source material.

The story has several different pieces. Kind of a meta-plot. Some pieces between Tron 1 and 2 were in the Tron: Uprising animated series and some other tie-ins were part of the story of the last Tron game.

Not the best way to film a major picture, but the whole storyline is actually really well done once you get tidbits all put together.

I always thought that CLU was a new version of what the Master Control was. He was tasked to "Create the Perfect World" inside the System as well as maintain it while Flynn was not there. All the programs we see walking around were not all functions but were sprites that existed for the sake of existing. Tron kept him original security program but acted as a body guard for Flynn till he was rewritten into his character in Legacy.

I enjoyed Tron Legacy as much as I enjoyed the first one, neither one of them was very detail oriented. This is somewhat like the dislike of the Star Wars episode 3. No it's not really a cinematic masterpiece and yes it's pretty cheesy at times but so was the original trilogy.

/lets not speak of episodes 1 and 2

Star Wars did that between Episode 2 and 3. The Mini (or was it Micro) series The Clone Wars was supposed to set up Episode 3. So if you missed that little series. The space battle and the Emperor being kidnapped at the beginning of the movie does not make any sense.

I will agree that Legacy was more about style than deep story, but some of these things were at least implied. Flynn was attempting to make the system into a civilization, and CLU was there to maintain it when he was out of the system, and given the amount of time in a cycle vs time when flynn was out of the system, that makes perfect sense. The programs made themselves into a free civilization and CLU had his ultimate goal of imposing will, while Flynn wanted a reflection of our civilization so he could help solve its problems. The radical change were the primitives and how Flynn and CLU perceived them. Tron was still an "enforcer" program and was reprogrammed as CLU's right hand man and tool of the system and not the user. I thought it was a coherent story and the only BS moment was with Flynn and CLU on the bridge.

Master Control was a chess program that was extended to new purposes, until it eventually became self-aware and ambitious enough to desire to take over all system functions for itself. It was not attempting to "perfect" the corporate mainframe; it was attempting to dominate it and, eventually, other systems.

CLU's supposed purpose was the continued pursuit of Flynn's original goal of a "perfect system", but a "perfect system" is an undefined concept. "Perfection" requires context to be meaningful; "perfection" according to one standard may be "imperfect" according to another. A "perfect" shade of blue would be "imperfect" if attempting to create a "perfect" shade of purple. Without knowing Flynn's initial standards, I have no understanding of what he was attempting to accomplish. An argument could be created that a "perfect" system is one that can readily accommodate imperfect elements, in which case CLU's behaviour was counterproductive.

I got the idea that what CLU felt was a "perfect system" was order and adherence to a set of strict parameters that while they weren't explicitly stated, didn't include the genesis of ISO's. He saw them as a glitch, an imperfection that wasn't accounted for in the system and as such they needed to be eliminated. Flynn didn't agree with that which is why he and CLU came into conflict.

I knew what the MCP was before he became the MCP. I just used that as a context example. CLU being made to create the perfect system. And CLU did work close with Flynn until the Isometric Algorithms were randomly created. Then Flynn's vision changed but CLU's program did not which could explain his corruption.

The whole concept of perfection was a minor subplot that was not really explored to its fullest. They made comments about how CLU wanted perfection and if he someone got to the real world, he would pretty much nuke us into nonexistence.

I really enjoyed the sequel as well. People can hate on it all they want but the truth is the original wasn't all that great. It hasn't aged well either. I have seen both movies and the recent sequel is a fun, well crafted movie. I could give a shiat if its not as "deep" as the original.
 
2012-12-14 11:14:05 AM  
Loved the first Tron, I'll echo the "favoritiest movie ever" from when I was a kid.

I did not go to see Tron 2 hoping to see a faithful maintenance of the franchise and it's ethos; I went to watch a kick-ass two hour long Daft Punk music video, which it was, and more.

Only thing I really, REALLY didn't like about T:L was how hard they tried to mold everything to the religion subtext that was established. I get that it was intentional and supposedly served an artistic purpose, but halfway through the movie I wanted to stand up and yell WE GET IT ALREADY, HE'S JESUS, CLU'S THE DEVIL, AND THIS IS PURGATORY. ENOUGH.
 
2012-12-14 11:14:18 AM  

Orgasmatron138: Dillinger, Jr. should be a fun storyline. Especially if the old man makes a cameo.


My personal favorite idea for the sequel is that Dillinger Jr. finds a copy of the old MCP in some old stash of his dads stuff along with clues that lead him to find out about Flynn's little virtual world that Sam has on a chain around his neck. He steals the virtual world, does some reverse engineering and throws an updated MCP into the mix and it starts having an effect on the real world, which is where Sam and Quorra come in.

Tron Legacy was a great movie to see with my kids, was our first 3D experience (which was well-done and perfect for the sciency/techy plot of the movie) and was all around fun.

Many of the critics here forget movies are to entertain and simply enjoy sucking the joy out of things like some pathetic belly-showing nut-hugger-shorts-wearing comic book store guy.

The problem I saw with the income/expenditure ratio for TRON: Legacy wasn't necessarily the movie's budget, but the absurd amount of marketing that Disney put into it. Numbers I recall seeing showed that they spent more on marketing than the movie budget itself.

The purpose of the grid is so that Flynn can play God

If you think about it, Flynn created a computer universe which he can sculpt and mold as he wishes. He can create programs that can think and feel for itself. He can come down from the real, physical world to visit and interact with his creation much like God. CLU, like Lucifer knew Flynn/God's plan for the universe, didn't like it, and tried to create his own version of the universe. CLU knew that there was another plain of reality and wanted to overtake that other reality much like Lucifer storming the gates of Heaven.

Also, like God, Flynn can fix damaged programs and correct any glitches basically he can eliminate all pain and suffering and create a paradise for his creations to live in. So, is Flynn an a$$hole? Because when he leaves the grid he can't fix damaged programs or glitches since he's not there physically. Doesn't he have an obligation to look after his creation? Is he a bad god?

There are programs that created themselves and come out of the darkness to the grid. Flynn didn't create them and wonders how they came into being. They are exterminated by CLU but if they created themselves it makes you wonder if they can ever really be destroyed forever as where do they really go after death?

Plus, can a User extend their natural life by living solely in the grid? Flynn said that minutes and hours in the real world was days and months in the grid. If a User's physical body is downloaded to the grid, can't someone go into their program and delete any undesired medical conditions? Say you have cancer, well download to the grid and live there for as long as it takes for someone in the reall world to adjust your program to eliminate all the cancer cells. You upload back to the real world in a new physical body that is now free of cancer. Remember how the laser thingee makes a users physical body disappear when downloading to the grid and reappear when uploading? Why can't it eliminate certain medical issues?
