I can understand that. You have emotional ties with the film that interfere with any objective assessment of its qualities. I have similar emotional ties to Never-ending Story. You must understand that the magic qualities of childhood have fused the film to certain associations that are in your own mind and no one elseís. I am talking about the actual film here.

I read your posts as they are written.

My good fiend, you are evading the issue. How does my more objective view of the film make me a pompous cave dweller?

And you lack the consistency to follow your own advice. read some of my posts on the thread, you Highly Modest Homo Sapient.


P.S. If you wish to persist to insult me rather than talk about 'Tron', I suggest that you not clutter this forum with your filth. You want to 'take it outside'? That is what 'Pilots Mess' is for.

'world inside-the-computer flick of the early 80's. a programmer is sucked into his own creation. The sprites are alive! Eventualy he saves the comp. world from it's evil Red-Tornado looking ruler. IBM 9000 will probebly give you a more detailed description when he gets bored of gnawing at my ankles.

(and if you have read the post after this one, you will notice that he hasn't yet... Persistent little bugger, ain't he?) oh... and Mr. IBM (it's okey, we all BM ) if you want to continue with the childish insults please have some consideration to those who want to discuss Tron and do it here

A TRON remake = money loser!

I would not envy the producers of a remake of "TRON". It is likely to be a money loser, possibly a big money loser. I doubt many people, aside from fans of the original, will be interested enough to pay $9.00 a seat at the movie theatre.

I would see a remake, especially since i saw Tron as a little kid, and don't remember a damned thing, aside from the fact that I liked it.

Re: remake

I would wait until it came out on tape... a streight-to-video release might be the safest option... Tron does not have a large enough following for the sequal to garantee a blockbuster.

Re: remake

Do you think the remake will feature Bruce Boxelightentheloaferser, from all those Kenny Rogers Gambler movies (and a stint on the repressive Babylon 5)?

I remember the absolute anticipation over the original film only to be absoutely let down when I saw it. I like it a little better now that I can at least understand what's going on. Bottom line, this is the only example I can quickly recall where the video game was better than the film.

Re: remake

Tron was original because of the "what is reality" theme. If Tron was never made The Matrix movie wouldn't exist.Other themes in the movie are the Christ/Flynn subtext and information is for all and not for big companies.IT IS A GREAT FILM.Can't wait for Tron2.0

Tron did not invent the 'what is reality theme'. Philosophers have been debating it for thousands of years. It has existed in SF litereture for quite a while, and I am sure that Tron is neither the first nor the best film to have explored it. The premise behind Tron is rather more like Toy Story than the matrix to begin with. "The video games are alive!"

And while the Matrix is neither the deepest nor the most original movie to have covered this issiue, (The Thirteenth Floor is both deeper and more original) when set against Tron, it looks like one of the prime acheivments of Humanity.

Re: remake

I saw Tron when I was 12-14 (33 now) and I didn't think much of it either. Saw it again recently and although it was still pretty bad, especially the acting, it was strange seeing as I now understand all the computer jargon. I did like the effects though.

It was DEFINATELY better than The Black Hole! lol Ironically, I liked that movie the first time I saw it.
