bdub77: 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.


Lol... your posting leads me to believe you've never seen Tron 2, nor the Matrix.

douchebag/hater: Oh, please, subby.

ANOTHER sci-fi movie that the fanboys rant and rave will be the 'best movie evah!' and will most likely turnout to be run-of -the-mill crap.

Like 'Prometheus'. Or the 'Hulk' movies or 'Alien vs. Predator'.

I'm sick of all the hype put out about movies that haven't been made yet.


Oh, grow up and toke a doob, kiddo.

Dimensio: Dimensio:
Tron Legacy was an action movie written with little regard for an understanding computer science. [...] The first movie incorporated some basic understanding of computer technology and use at the time. [...] Tron Legacy made no effort to relate its "computer" world to reality...


This is right on target. I enjoyed Tron: Legacy but I felt it could have been a much better film, if they hadn't severed the connection with typical computers/programs and the things the users of the day are familiar with.

Back in '82, a lot of people would be familiar with dumb terminals, and a few would know something about PCs. Putting Tron in that setting made sense for that time. Showcasing the dopey disc-chucking and light cycle games made sense because they weren't too far off the crap you would find in video arcades of the day.

Tron: Legacy left all the nerdery behind and severed the characters from the slender threads connecting them to a real IT framework. Today, if some comp-sci grad is going to build "the perfect system" from the ground up, few people would do it using million-dollar mainframes (which have become a rarity, excepting transaction-heavy businesses like banks, insurance companies and retailers). It also wouldn't make much screenwriting sense; for the Average Joe today, a client-server model is more familiar. And if you're living in a client-server world, you're not going to be playing light cycles or disc-chucking games, you're going to be playing GTA or Warcraft or an FPS.

Anyway as previously said, I enjoyed Tron: Legacy, but I wish the writers had found a way to utilize current IT frameworks (and pastimes). That connection was part of how the original Tron tapped into the zeitgeist of its day. Keeping it locked into the outdated tech framework of a certain time renders it a little bit like modern Hamlet productions, where they stuff the actors in frilly 16th century slashed shirts, even though the people they portray lived a few hundred years before frilly shirts became the fashionable style.

Cerebral Knievel: GriffXX: Qwertyette: Daft punk sucks. I was laughing during that whole scene with Daft Punk. Totally lame and totally fanservice. Absolutely unnecessary and detracted from the movie, a movie which was already turning out to be pretty bad.
The whole movie was basically fanservice of "look at all the pretty lights". The villian was lame and overplayed, and the hero was weak and underdeveloped.
A Hot chick + Popular band does not make a good movie.

If you like electronic music it's hard to ignore the influence Daft Punk has had on the genre. I like some of their stuff, but I think the music for the movie was bland and the inclusion on them IN the movie was ridiculous.

I picture the conversation going something like this:

"We have to put them in the movie."

"What are you talking about?! They are musicians! How is this supposed to add value to the script?!"

"Look, they already made their own outfits. Helmets and everything. No-one has the heart to tell them no."

*sigh*

I love electronic, and I love Daft punk.. though, admittedly, I'm a bigger fan of Fatboy slim...Hell.. I even have all of Daft punk's stuff including live bootlegs.. word to the wise though.. don't bother downloading multiple copies of the same tour..

in any case

I agree with your assessment.. and you got a chuckle out of that.. but really.. wasn't the scene more or less just a Cameo anyways? it's not like they were some kind of mystical force leading the way down a maze complete with magical ZZtop'esque hand gestures point in the right direction or something.


Yeah, I guess for me it was just one more thing that added to the feeling of being 'left wanting' at the sequel. I loved the original and, even after reading this thread, I am still having a hard time putting my finger on how it just didn't evoke the same emotion. When I read your comment I thought, "What if they had Kraftwerk in the background in the 1982 version? I wonder if I'd react the same way." Probably.

Cerebral Knievel: thecpt: Fark yes. Loved the sequel, but fans are obviously awaiting for two more announcements for inclusion in the third:

[images.hitfix.com image 315x217]

[static.guim.co.uk image 460x276]

one glaring thing that stick out in my mine... Back when the movie came out, and everybody was excited that Daft punk was doing the music for the film, a Fark commenter complained that that they didn't like it because it sounded too much like a movie score..

had to facepalm when I read that..


I liked Tron Legacy.. it was what it was. a fun summer flick


Summer flicks are rarely released in December.

The sequel was great and I've probably watched it about 5 times. fark the haters.

FunkyBlue: 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.


Thats the number one fail thing a movie can do. If it isnt a direct sequel all information needed for the story should be in the film.

Dimensio: 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".


Have you ever worked in software? We can barely keep half the guys on our team doing productive work instead of burning all their time continuously rewriting stuff that already works in a Quixotic quest for perfection.

I am Wee Todd Ed: SacriliciousBeerSwiller: I am Wee Todd Ed: SacriliciousBeerSwiller: I am Wee Todd Ed: I love the Tron movies and the movies also generated so many interesting things to think about! Tron makes more sense than the Matrix.

Disagree. Plugging people into a computer network and feeding signals to their brains seems far more plausible than transporting their entire body into a computer. Plus, the latter comes with the whole "transporter" scenario: you'd just be murdering the individual and creating a copy with a separate consciousness that doesn't realize it isn't the original.

Um....yeah.....but...er.....um.....like...what if....what if Zion, the robot-war, the creation of the matrix, is itself another matrix? 1% of humanity doesn't accept the matrix so why wouldn't 1% of the1% not accept Zion? Humans farmed for energy? WTF? Also, no offense to anyone but most computer geeks are not buffed dudes and hot chicks who like to wear weird fetish clothes to blend in...just sayin'.

And I think when a user dies in the grid, their program is "de-rezed" (?) which I think means deleted. So you couldn't create another individual/clone who died in the grid with the laser thingee as their program was deleted.

You do bring up the issue of clones, could you create an infinite number of a particular individual thanks to the grid and the laser thingee?

Keep downloading someone over and over again to the grid or to the real world. Is there really any limitations to copying a program over and over again?

Did Flynn also create teleportation?

Send a laser thingee to mars and set it up with remote controlled robots. Download some astronauts/colonists here on Earth to the grid, upload them on Mars....boom...I just created teleportation and human space travel over incredible distances is now possible!!!

But you KILLED them, dammit! You killed the person and re-built a new one on Mars! TELEPORTERS = MURDER!!!! And what's worse, everyone you "teleport" insists they're fine, because they do ...


Looks like a lot of people in this thread need to read.

The new animated series was pretty enjoyable. Shame Disney killed it off halfway through the first season.
 
2012-12-14 09:18:32 PM
....Loved BOTH movies and can't wait to see this one. But I have to admit - the best part of seeing Legacy was realizing the way my 11-year old son was looking at me every time I went all fanboy over the easter eggs scattered throughout the film.
 
2012-12-14 09:22:05 PM
Meh. I'd pay to see another Tron. It'd probably the one they fark up the most, and it would be the last Tron I'd see.
Third sequels have never impressed me.

2012-12-14 11:22:12 PM
Tron was a very silly, low budget movie from the 80's with some very interesting visuals and a fun chase/ escape story that gave little ins to the computer nerd crowd.

Tron Legacy took that, and gave it a budget, better direction, and up to date visuals with a killer electronic soundtrack.

Honestly, it was the most prefect popcorn flick of the decade and was a very fun ride. I'm really looking forward to a the sequel, and generally don't understand the nay-sayers. What more did you want from the movie where people get sucked into a computer simulation? MCP? Well... the first was just the setup to the new characters and visual style.
 
2012-12-14 11:32:28 PM

MadCat221: 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 also had some very problematic scheduling. So much so the sound mix in the home release is very different then the theatrical release. They went back and fixed it, because the director admitted they weren't given time to really do it right.

The winter/x-mas release also had me scratching my head. Granted there was a weak lineup that year, but this was the sort of movie you release during the summer.

I think Disney got wobbly about science fiction, even as they wanted to replicate the Trek reboot.

Why would they waste time when dropping a brick on their head is faster? Kurzweil is a farking nut. He actually believes when nanobots get good enough he can sprinkle them on his father's grave and they will reconstruct daddy. It is not fanciful dreaming, he actually believes that will happen one day. Coo-coo for cocoa puffs.

He also does not understand (or totally ignores) the difference between types of exponential growth, and the fundamental concept of saturation which is ubiquitous in nature. It is like reading Michio Kaku except written by someone even more willfully ignorant.

Parallax: Dimensio: 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 ...

I desperately wanted to diss you with some kinda "cool story bro" comment, but I must admit you have a point. The plot points regarding the computer world itself are very, very vague in the sequel...


All this, plus as soon as they tried to pass off CG Daniels in the opening I was pretty much removed

dickfreckle: Yes, I am a tremendous motorcycle nerd.


High five. Haven't owned a car since 1998.

thecpt: That scene makes me want to buy a motorcycle every time I watch it.


Get one! There is no better driving experience. Take it to a track, and learn how to get the most out of your machine.
One piece of advice though: If you decide to get rowdy, don't make Sam's mistake of cutting light traffic at 108mph. You need to keep it up above 130 to keep the cops off your back.

I am Wee Todd Ed: Did Flynn also create teleportation?

Send a laser thingee to mars and set it up with remote controlled robots. Download some astronauts/colonists here on Earth to the grid, upload them on Mars....boom...I just created teleportation and human space travel over incredible distances is now possible!!!


No, the laser system wasn't invented by Flynn. And no, that's not the way digitizing works in the Tron universe.

Not disintegrating, Alan -- digitizing. While the laser is dismantling the molecular structure of the object, the computer maps out a holographic model of it. The molecules themselves are suspended in the laser beam. Then the computer reads the model back out, the molecules go back into place, and...voila.

That's from the script; the actual quote from the film is slightly different.

yves0010: The whole concept of perfection was a minor subplot that was not really explored to its fullest.


The point that I found to be hammered home rather soundly is that Flynn's original idea of perfection was limited based on the knowledge and experience he had at the point when he created CLU. At the time, Flynn saw perfection as being something akin to "perfect order" or "perfect efficiency". CLU could never move beyond that idea, because even though he was as "intelligent" as Flynn was, he wasn't able to become "wise" for lack of a better word.

Flynn, having lived in the computer for 1000 years with nothing to do but ponder the question, is now essentially the wisest person who ever lived. His understanding of the paradox of "perfection containing imperfection" or perfection being a self-defeating concept, sets him apart from everyone, humans and programs alike. It also touches on the paradox of omnipotence, in that his creation (the Grid) gave rise to the spontaneous creation of beings whose complexity is beyond his own understanding (the ISOs).

Dimensio: 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.


You make some good points. The complaints that aren't legitimate have already been addressed by others, so I'll just say this: The movie paid some lip service to real geeks with Flynn's system clearly running an identifiable variant of UNIX, and Sam's use of real UNIX commands. Also here's a link that explains the idead behind some of the "hacking" stuff that flashed by and was probably taken as technobabble by most of the film's viewers.

I think they got all of this out of the way early in the film so that they could concentrate on larger philosophical ideas without having to force the digital world into some sort of tortured analogy. Tron was my favorite movie as a kid. I didn't enjoy T:L the first time through as much, but the more I've watched it and thought about, the happier with it I've become. The main reason I was able to re-watch it in the first place is that a) it's a straight-up visually beautiful film, b) I'm a motorcycle nerd, and c) Olivia Wilde's mix of power and fragility is something I find gripping.

I think a better ending, though depressing, would have been if Quorra had come out of the computer world as a floppy disk.
 
2012-12-15 12:38:18 AM
Dimensio really grasps the core of what fails in Legacy. It could have been much more than it was, and I have to think the writers did come up with a lot better plot lines with fewer holes and inconsistencies, but I choose to believe the iterative and collaborative process of movie-making is what fundamentally distorted this movie's world. They probably started with things making more sense and being simpler at the same time, but then you get "notes" from every shmuck with some skin in the game, and the resulting script changes are ... well. it's like the scene in Robocop when he's become overloaded with conflicting directives. When you write *good* sci -fi, you do it by first designing the world of the story and its mechanics, then using those rules to drive and steer the plot. This is not the usual Hollywood story development process.
 
2012-12-15 02:33:05 AM
Let's see, in Kingdom Hearts II we had the first TRON, the "Space Paranoids" world, which had a critical importance to the plot and was incredibly awesome and nerdgasming.

images4.wikia.nocookie.net

And in Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance we had TRON: Legacy as "The Grid", which was one of the darkest Disney worlds in the series.

Maybe TRON 3 will be in Kingdom Hearts III, or as part of the first KH game in the post-Xehanort Saga series.

I liked the second because it was fun to watch, with plenty of eye-candy (plus Jeff Bridges, who's always really awesome no matter what he does)

Curious to see what they do with the third... Probably more brainless eyecandy, which is fine by me.

I am Wee Todd Ed: 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 cer ...


Apparently not. Flynn was aging in real-time. The ISO's I think will be found to bridge the gap between human and program, with Quorra being able to heal from wounds that no human can, like for instance having her arm amputated.
 
2012-12-15 10:28:14 AM

Dingleberry Dickwad: 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.

It did $400 million WW on $170m, which puts it right in line with Trek 2009. Perfectly acceptable when you don't know marketing costs.

Unfortunately word was Disney really spent on marketing, close to 100% it's budget. Which isn't surprising, look how the same studio totally screwed up John Carters marketing and release. Back to back, and people were fired over it.

Tron:L's biggest issues was it's botched marketing and release. Still, they probably more then paid for it off licensing, nerd toys and kids merchandise.

well, yes.. that was pretty much my point. That it would've done better over all if it was handled better.

and while I haven't seen John Carter yet, I am willing to give it a shot. That the issue with the Film was more that they were trying to make the tittle character a kinda :Indiana Jones like license-able character instead of focusing in the princess of mars story line it was taken from.

Legacy was the poop.

They had such an opportunity to to explore how computers have evolved and how our culture changed with access to all this computing power and ubiquitous networking. Instead they made it a dumb action movie where the action wasn't even that good.

"we as writers suck too much to figure out how to work the internet into this so we are making this a closed system"

Tron 2.0 was just a better crafted story and world, and made a much better use of the source material.

That could be what Tron 3 is about. I can see how the internet would not be brought into Tron Legacy due to the computer the Grid was on was a legacy computer and was there since the late 80s. There was no network (as far as I can see in the film) that the computer existed on. Now, with today's tech, and hoping they set the next movie inside ENCOM's own tower and its servers. We can finally see them try and take over the world via the internet. Maybe MCP could make another appearance.
