So I went to see tron on Saturday and I have to say it was a thrilling ride. I really want a Light Cycle. Real bad. The technology is where the imagination was all those years ago when special effects were a trial and error process, with heavy reliance on camera tricks, and the results are spectacular. I loved it. Everything was so smooth and shiny, and the vehicles, suits, discs, and terrain were intricate and elegantly simple at the same time.

I think they did a really good job on the story, filling in the things you needed to know without making you wish they would move on, providing the characters with believable emotions and enough development you got a feeling of where they were coming from.

A tid bit of info I found pretty cool was that the costume designers wanted to make the suits actually light up and with whatever high falootin' techno gadgetry of this modern age they had they made the suits light up. I think that is awesome. I also want a Light suit.
I love the music in this movie! It's so old+new and awesome. Daft punk make a cameo in this movie and they look pretty cool I must say. Not only do they look amazing but the soundtrack to this movie is incredible, the bass is so low and the treble so trebly and the beats so head bobbing good. Then they fill out the electronica sound with symphonic bliss and the resulting audio elixir will cure whatever ails you.

I would like to give this movie a high five because it did what lots of movies try to do but didn't have to put in all the crap Hollywood usually insists must be present for a movie to be a success.

Go see this movie and you'll have lots of good fun. My girlfriend even liked it, and she's "not a nerd".
