I remember when I saw TRON in the theaters back then. I was 16, and it was a BIG influence on my decision to get into Computers more (not they way Flynn did, of course!). That decision has paid off in my career that I have today! It was cool being a part of the early adaptation of Home Computers and the revolution they sparked!

I had a Tandy CoCo, Atari 800XL, Atari ST, Commodore Amiga, and then I moved into the "PC Clones".

The 80's were a fantastic time for having computers before the internet ruined them!

I agree with others that TRON Legacy wasn't nearly as good as the original TRON. My biggest complaint: Not enough use of the "CGI FX" like the original had to portray the environment. They used a lot of sets that were simply lit to look like computer graphics. That took away from the immersion effect we got from the original, even if it does look dated today. And everyone had HAIR! WTF?!?!? What happened to the cool helmets?? And the lit suits didn't look nearly as convincing as the CG'ed suits from the original.

BUT, TRON Legacy did have ONE awesome thing about it: Olivia Wilde! She is SUCH a babe! Damn that woman is FINE!!!

Ok Wise, you actually just lost a few "cool-guy" points with me.
You need to see TRON, however, don't go into it with any preconcieved notions or any thoughts of how "great" it is going to be, or you will be disappointed.

It is a fun popcorn flick to watch on a slow Saturday afternoon, and the sequel actually dovetails quite nicely into it. Lots of references to the first film in the second one, and some you definitely won't catch if you haven't seen it.

Also, a neat thing about the sequel is that the light cycles they used (where they are open instead of closed-cockpit) are what was originally designed for the first movie, only the computer graphics couldnt' accomodate showing the actors realistically enough at the time, so they were "simplified" to be enclosed.
