TRON

Oh man. I’ve been waiting for a sequel to the movie TRON since I saw the original at the Santikos Northwest 10 in San Antonio when I was a kid. I loved that movie. And this weekend, I saw the sequel. It was visually stunning, Jeff Bridges put in a great repeat performance as Flynn, and . . . it sucked.

Boy did it suck. There were plot threads that went nowhere. There was inconsistent internal logic. There were no surprises of plot or character development.

I was hoping for more. The best thing I can say about it is that it didn’t shatter my childhood memories the same way that George Lucas did with the three Star Wars prequels.

    How sad. But thanks for the warning.

    At least it wasn’t as bad as Avatar. Maybe I liked it better because my expectations were set appropriately low from a couple of reviews. Oh well.

    Miss you man – just ain’t the same without you around!!!

    “no surprises of plot or character development?”…what were you thinking? Isn’t this movie’s target audience teen boys? At least it was visually pleasing. Miss you!
