Tron: Legacy – A Futuristic Blast to the Past

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 Although the graphics were already outdated when it was released, because of the amazing work that Industrial Light and Magic was doing, there was something enduring about the film.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. Like its prequel Tron, some of the graphics were a bit outdated before the film hit the theater.

The Men Who Stare At Goats

The Men Who Stare At Goats

There is a tremendous amount of talent in The Men Who Stare At Goats. The cast includes George Clooney, Jeff Bridges, Kevin Spacey, and Ewan McGregor. On the opposite end of the camera there are equally impressive individuals, including cinematographer Robert Elswit (There Will Be Blood, and Michael Clayton). Sadly the talent in this film is not utilized.
