tronI still have the VHS of the original 82 TRON. What an overlooked film, but not to us who couldn't get enough of it. It's a bithokey, so what? The "masters" within the program and the "users" and human beings digitized into cyberspace ....what? C'mon give me a break.

But, suspend your belief for the moment and let those light cycles zig zag up, down and around and you start getting it, just don't try to figure it out. So, it's with this backdrop that I've been anxiously awaiting the TRON Legacy, 3D no less, and now with enhanced CGI capabilities, motion tracking software, the works. Still, the premise and the idea of this internal gaming computer world hacked by evil masters, ... stop me please. 

Once again, don't try to figure it out. But this is what worries me about this new release1982 Tron Light cycles after watching all those teasers. The "son" (what son? He had a son?) is going after his father who has split up into part evil master and part ancient guru eternally trapped. Never mind the basics like food, shelter, or as I said don't try to figure it out. So, will we be bombarded with "meaning" and "explanations" this time?

YORI

Remember the original slogan "where love and escape do not compute?" Yori was hot and ENCOM became the "ultimate enemy" thanks to "master control" or lines like "you should've been erased?"

Jeff Bridges seems to have lost the young "dude" routine, or at least in the trailers we don't see his arms flapping saying lots of "hey man" though he's been split into a virtual demonic self and a spiritual Zen like overseer, trapped forever in cyberspace.

It's just in time for the holidays where the "users are gods" line returns to our senses. After all aren't we "user masters" at our screens decoding  "who shall live and who shall die?"

Play on!

I've used Drupal, a very powerful modular content management system, for this site. The theme and style is my own starting with the base Zen template
