not great quality infact the quality is terrible,crooked and very small,but stick with it(2minutes 32 seconds),it has a lot of lightcycle action,the special effects look awesome...and very cool...and Jeff Bridges being in it suprised me as well



seems the lightcycle stream can do better than rightangles all the time,but then again if this is another game,seems that it is upto date and the 'graphics' can do that now

oh and like Se7en...instead of Tron 2,i think its Tr2n...which is a bit er.... saywhat

That came out of ComiCon and I've been waiting ever since for a decent version of it to hit the net.  I hate the naming convention, but I look forward to the movie. smile

here's a script review.  obviously there are spoilers, so here's the opening bit if you're worried about seeing something you don't want to:

Quote
A look at an early draft of  Tron 2 reveals a script filled with problems and potential.

It's a sequel in the Die Hard 2 sense of the term. Meaning, it's less a pure continuation of the original narrative like The Empire Strikes Back and more a dutiful remake told on a larger scale and with a bigger budget. You know, like most sequels.
I don't begrudge it for being that. I love the original Tron, but my biggest problem with it is its length. It's too short by half an hour. Steven Lisberger, the animator and brains behind the 1982 cult classic, undoubtedly poured most of his budget into Jeff Bridges' salary and the movie's fantastic bleeding-edge CGI. He probably had to keep it short and sweet.

But man Lisberger packed his original movie with invention. Over the years, we've seen dozens of movies revisit virtual reality, cyberspace and the basic idea of going inside a computer, from the terrible (The Lawnmower Man) to the great (The Matrix), but Lisberger's movie has retained a lot of its charm over the years for its simple conceit that the programs we write have lives of their own, all without us knowing it. I wanted to see more of that world. It's worth exploring again, though the draft of Tron 2 I read didn't explore this world or the interesting ideas Lisberger introduced with the depth I'd like to see.

Before I go on, let's get the caveats out of the way. Richard Jeffries receives sole writing credit on the draft I read, though the IMDb lists Lost scribe Edward Kitsis as a writer, too.

Since I did at age 17 see Tron in a theater in Summer 1982 in Virginia on my annual visit back from Korea (by myself - my friends thought it sounded stupid, and probably they were dismayed Cindy Morgan didn't have a topless scene as in Caddyshack drool), I can say... it'll have been 28 years since the last movie, not 25. Apparently Jeff Bridges' character has invented computer time travel as well. Very clever...  icon_razz

I think it's also time for a grumpy old man like me to also wave my cane and holler "The Light Cycle game is a ripoff of Taito's 1981 arcade game Qix! Harumph!"  disgust icon_smile It is funny that I've seen old Qix console reviews that said "this reminds me of the Tron light cycle game!"  Roll Eyes We had a Tron light cycle arcade game near my campus in 1983 (maybe we had one in one of our dorm buildings, i can't quite remember), and I really enjoyed any opportunity to play it.

Although I've never heard of the young actors, that's maybe for the best. Some better known young actors bring so much baggage. I hope they've written a story worth sitting through. Unlike in 1982, computer-generated special effects are not exactly unique today.

If you want to get technical (and considering it regards ancient videogame history, I do!), Atari's Surround predated Tron by nearly 5 years, and was so similar I'm quite surprised Atari/Warner didn't try to sue Disney for such a blatant duplication.

...which was in turn a copy of an obscure arcade game called Barricade from the previous year

I don't know how objective a Moviefone review's going to be, but here ya go...

'Tron: Legacy' Review: A Thrilling, Evocative, and Utterly Satisfying Piece of Entertainment
http://blog.moviefone.com/2010/12/03/tron-legacy-review/
Quote
As a longtime fan of the 1982 original, I must confess to a certain willingness to give this sequel/follow-up the benefit of the doubt, although by no means would I be or am I now blind to its shortcomings. But there is an undeniable singularity to the accomplishments of first-time director Joseph Kosinski and his cast and crew that really does make it a special, vaguely nostalgic but also futuristic fable, a time capsule and fortune teller bottled up together inside the prettiest piece of pop art you've ever seen. Moreover, it's not in spite but precisely because of the wonky, unusual feeling it produces that 'Tron: Legacy' is a thrilling, evocative, and utterly satisfying piece of entertainment.
He has seen it 3 times already.  icon_smile

Apparently the tech to have Bridges play himself as the younger villain isn't as seamless as Avatar's effects. Though it could be interesting down the road if the tech improved. Would you have, say, a 75 year old Harrison Ford playing a digital version of himself at 38 (his age when he did Raiders of the Lost Ark) as Indiana Jones? Or age Sigourney Weaver back into her 30s for another Alien flick? The mind reels.  icon_razz It sounds ridiculous, but probably no more so than the idea of a wholly greenscreened film like 300 might have a couple decades ago.

If this and next summer's Cowboys & Aliens are both hits, I guess Olivia Wilde (House) will have to cope with becoming the new It Girl.   Fabulous

It's almost like they want you to get the torrent.  ninja

Fortunately for me, the movie was on cable over the summer and I DVR'd it.  I think I've watched it a half dozen times since then.

Bill Hunt at thedigitalbits.com suggested that the reason they didn't do a reissue to build hype for the new movie is that they didn't want to scare off the mainstream audience that wasn't familiar with the original..

Quote
One other brief note: A lot of you have asked why Disney hasn't released the original TRON on Blu-ray as part of the build-up to the 12/16 debut of the sequel, TRON: Legacy, in theatres. I don't have special knowledge on this (though I'll certainly ask the studio), but having seen the original film recently in high-def on HDNet, my guess would be that the studio feared it might scare off mainstream audiences. The original TRON, fond of it though we are, doesn't really have a lot of mainstream appeal these days. And clearly, just judging by its current marketing campaign alone, Disney is doing everything it can to make TRON: Legacy a more mainstream 3D movie event - something that both honors the original TRON but also reaches audiences WELL beyond those of the original film. Given that, if I had to bet, I'd lay money that you'll see both TRON and TRON: Legacy arrive on Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D and DVD on the same street date next year, probably individually and in a box set as well.

The movie is very much a product of it's time (both in terms of effects and the "computers are big scary things you should be afraid of" theme), and if you're not already familiar with it, it looks *really* dated - probably not the vibe Disney wants to portray for the new flick.

The Moviefone reviewer was quick to say you don't need to have seen the original Tron to enjoy or understand Tron: Legacy at all (i.e., there's enough exposition to get you up to speed - I sense that's probably why Bruce Boxleitner's character is there, to provide that back-history story on the fly) -- but you'll probably get more of a kick out of certain sequences, and you'll feel more nostalgia than someone who hadn't.

I'm sure they'll polish up the 1982 film with a nice remastering or something. I don't sense a George Lucas-type desire to spiff up its effects or a Spielberg political-correctness desire (replacing the federal agents' handguns with walkie-talkies in E.T.) to change something else. Tron is really sort of a "historical document" as far as computerized effects go, so they'd probably just as soon you still see it with the zipper running up its back, so to speak.  icon_smile

My best friend was in town recently, and we talked about trying to see it during the holidays. I remind him that he and another pal specifically refused to see it with me back in summer 1982 when I was on summer visit from Korea, and so I saw it myself in a nearly empty theater (he and I did see E.T., and Blade Runner that summer together), and later in the summer saw John Carpenter's "The Thing" in the same place.

I remember some critics dismissing Tron as watered down Star Wars (Bridges as Han Solo, Boxleitner as Luke Skywalker, Cindy Morgan as Leia, David Warner as Darth Vader etc.) when it released. I still quite enjoyed it, and it didn't look like anything else did at that time. Maybe the audience didn't know what to make of it, and Disney (not known for much more than animated kiddie flix at the time) wasn't quite sure how to market it. It might've had a better chance releasing somewhere other than the middle of summer during E.T.'s then-historic box office run.

While Tron was ballyhooed for computer effects in 1982, the underappreciated "The Last Starfighter" in 1984 was perhaps more meaningful in terms of putting computer effects on a mass scale on screen -- though Tron clearly sort of switched the light bulb on.  icon_smile Though I'm still of a mind that really good miniatures and stop-motion camera work still seems to look better and "weightier" for some things, though it's clearly either a dead or dying art at this point.

I'm sure they'll polish up the 1982 film with a nice remastering or something.

The 20th anniversary cut released in 2002 is acutally quite good and has some of the best DTS audio I've ever heard in a DVD - including Silver Bit disks. It's not HD, but it upscales very nicely to 1080p due to the good SDef source.

This was my biggest beef with the critics at the time, IMO it only marginally resembled Star Wars. Something that's easy to forget now, but it released at a time when only a small portion of the population was familiar with computer terms like Bit, CPU and RAM. For sure in none of the reviews I read back in the day, did any of the critics have a clue. A lot of them just saw the Tron setting within the mainframe computer as a simpler, colorful Star Was Universe. I think to really appreciate the movie you have to understand the clever inclusion of computer tech. In contrast, by the time the Reboot animation series came on the air in the 90's, far more people got the use of such terms and appreciated it more.

Hey, Jeff Bridges was on Tonight Show yesterday. He's in the odd position of having two films (Tron on Dec. 17, and True Grit on Dec. 22) open within a week of each other. Bizarre, no?  confused

He talked a bit about the motion capture work to play the younger "evil" version of his character. An interesting thing he said was that the motion capture animators were trying to replicate his look in the 1984 film "Against All Odds" (w/ Rachel Ward and James Bridges, though it's maybe better known for Phil Collins' title track hit song), working off footage from it, rather than from the original Tron. Perhaps too much of the footage from the original film had funky lighting.

Some early reviews said the "young Jeff Bridges" looked more like he did in Starman (for which he got his first Best Actor Oscar nomination), which also came out in 1984. But perhaps that film also had too many effects sequences with goofy lighting. And since he was playing the alien as emotion-less for much of it, it might not have lent itself to motion-capture in terms of variety in facial expressions.

The Grid is FANTASTIC work.  The Recognizer is also impressive work.   Daft Punk really outdid themselves with this soundtrack.  I'm not a big OST purchase guy, but this is a great exception to the rule.

I remember last Christmas my best friend was in town and we went to see Avatar at a mall. It was sold out all that night, and several shows for the following day too. I ended up seeing it in March, I think.

I'm not fully convinced Tron Legacy is going to draw that sort of rabid moviegoer interest, but I might look into advance tickets here soon, just in case.  icon_smile

Hey, Jeff Bridges was on Tonight Show yesterday. He's in the odd position of having two films (Tron on Dec. 17, and True Grit on Dec. 22) open within a week of each other. Bizarre, no?  confused

He talked a bit about the motion capture work to play the younger "evil" version of his character. An interesting thing he said was that the motion capture animators were trying to replicate his look in the 1984 film "Against All Odds" (w/ Rachel Ward and James Bridges, though it's maybe better known for Phil Collins' title track hit song), working off footage from it, rather than from the original Tron. Perhaps too much of the footage from the original film had funky lighting.
Maybe it was because he had a funky cap on for most of the movie.

Good lord no, why would I want that?

Because it's outstanding.  Have you listened to any of it yet?

I'm going through my first listen through now and enjoying it greatly.  I like Daft Punk to begin with, so the cheap purchase was a no brainer.  It's not all electronica, as there's an orchestra in there as well.  It's a really good mix.

They must have picked poorly when they picked the samples; I listened to a bunch of them and none of them screamed 'buy me!'
