TRON Legacy

tron_ducatiLast night, in preparation to watch TRON Legacy, I re-watched the original TRON film.  It seemed so much cooler when I saw it 25 years ago!  It’s a movie that didn’t age well, looking silly compared to film magic of today.  But TRON Legacy was awesome!  Yes, Sam (as Calvin pointed out) had lines that consisted of at most 5-word sentences, but he was sooo nice to look at, and the black and white and glow-suit imagery was visually exciting and very appealing, and the Daft Punk OST was fun, energizing, and fitting.  And I was super excited to see that Sam was riding my dream motorbike, a Ducati Sport Classic!

Sad smile  I will have to take the girls later in the week.  They were disappointed to hear I was going to the movie without them.  I didn’t think they would be interested in it, but they have been watching the previews on the Disney Channel, so that’s how they knew about it.  I think the tech talk will have them a little lost and confused, but there the story is easy enough to follow without understanding all of it.
