Tron: Legacy – A Futuristic Blast to the Past

The original Tron was released by Disney in 1982, two years after The Empire Strikes Back. Although the graphics were already outdated when it was released, because of the amazing work that Industrial Light and Magic was doing, there was something enduring about the film. <img src="http://pointofviewreviews.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/lightcycle.jpg" alt="lightcycle from Tron Legacy" title="lightcycle" width="550" height="206" class="size-full wp-image-2385" srcset="http://pointofviewreviews.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/lightcycle.jpg 550w, http://pointofviewreviews.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/lightcycle-200×74.jpg 200w, http://pointofviewreviews.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/lightcycle-300×112 more information.jpg 300w, http://pointofviewreviews.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/lightcycle-150×56.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 550px) 100vw, 550px” /> lightcycle from Tron Legacy For all of us who grew up in the age of the old video games played on the big arcade systems, the idea of being pulled into the game and ending up on the grid… or within the inner workings of the computer network (or Internet), which was just coming into being, was compelling and in some way weirdly magical. Coming back to Tron after all these years was fun, especially on the big IMAX screen in 3D, where the graphics of the Grid are able to shine. I have to admit that I really enjoyed seeing the updated versions of the game arena, the cycles, and the big transports. Although I had a good time in the film, the ticket price for IMAX 3D is really a killer. At $18.50 per ticket, it was a very expensive evening for two.

If you have kids and you can only see one film during the holidays, then this is it. This updated version of Rapunzel is smart, cute, and simply a blast!

Her side-kick is a cute little chameleon, who keeps reminding her of her dreams. helps her with her paintings, and her chores around the tower. No kitty cats for this girl. Rapunzel’s Chameleon One day while her “mother” is out, a rogue by the name of Flynn (played by Zachary Levi Pugh) is chased into the castle by a guard’s horse, Maximus, a rather determined fellow. Striking a deal with Flynn after knocking him out with a frying pan, Rapunzel sets out on the first journey of her life to see the floating birthday lights that have fascinated her all her life. What ensues is hysterical and wonder filled. [ad name=”Google Adsense-bottom”]Although Disney has come under fire for changing the name of the story from Rapunzel to Tangled, it seems as though an updated story deserves an updated name. When asked about it at the film’s release, Wikipedia quotes the directors Nathan Greno and Byron Howard as saying,” You can’t...
