The 1982 movie TRON was a straight-up masterpiece. Between the cutting-edge special effects, the high-concept storyline of religion and technology, and the swirling, perfect soundtrack from Wendy Carlos, TRON was an eye-opening and mind-bending experience.

All I can say about Tron: Legacy is…
You have to see this film. If you’ve seen the 1982 original TRON, you need to see this film. Even if you’ve never seen the original film, you need to see this one. And that’s exactly what happened for me – Wednesday night. Thanks to one of my blog readers and trivia opponents (Jeff –…Read More
