Where's all the Love for TRON?

Greetings programs! Hey, I know this movie has been out on DVD for years (two-seperate releases) but still. Sure it's sort of goofy and cheesy but it's a REALLY fun movie. This is one of the few movies that is light-enough-but-cool-enough play over and over again. Must have watched it 50 times already since I got it and ... it's on my screen as I type this! So any other TRON lovers out there? Maybe if we get some DVDs sold we'll finally get that sequel made? Could happen.


BTW - The TRON 2.0 pc game was really cool and you can get it now cheap ($20).

There IS a sequel. Albeit the sequel is TRON 2.0 and available for PC. PC you say for a sequel? It's a video game sequel, mind you!
Same goes for the sequel to The Thing. 'Tis a video game sequel.
BUT, we want a live-action, big-budget, silver-screen sequel! Ok, I'm glad I cleared up that matter.

Flynn ............ "inside the MCP" = Master Control .... nice.

Deleted. - Static

And honestly, the Reboot television series was the Tron sequel for me. People inside a computer. It has really been done. And anyway, the first movie doesn't have any continuing story needing resolution in a second film.

If you think someone is trying to shill something, report it to the mods. Don't clog up what might be a legitimate thread with your speculation. Thanks.

Odd, I thought atleast half my post was not talking about shilling... But I guess if all of it seemed fit to be nuked.. whatever.

As I said, Disney may have given tron a 20 year ann. treatment, but it's still a bastard child in it's libary. The people mover removed it's little tron section some time before they even removed the people mover from disneyland. Rather a lot of suckage if you ask me.

So the sequel to you is something completely unrelated? I would have enjoyed a live action sequel but I'm sure that under Eisner's control the interest in making a sequel to a 20 year old film series that might not have had a larger audiance was out of the question.

I love Tron. I used to watch that flick every day when I was a kid. I bought both DVD's.

And Jack is right, Disney treats Tron like a bastard child. Some days it seems like Black Hole gets more love from them.

I always thought Tron was a little cheesy, but I loved it as a kid, and I still enjoy it. It's one of those movies that will always have a special place in my heart. I have the 2 disc version and have watched a few times.

The first time I watched Tron was at the mall, on laserdisc. My mom had a little table at Waldenbooks for something or other, and I had to mind the table every now and then. I was able to go over to one of the big TV stores, where they were playing Tron on a big-screen. I had to watch in chunks, though... I watched the second third, then the final third, and then the first third.

I'm always being reminded to Tron everytime I play old PC games. That movie is a fun to watch. And oh, am I the only one who think that the special effects is still holding up?

Of course they are "dated" but they are a wonderful product of their time. I wouldn't change them one iota.

Let's just hope they never remake it with "state of the art" effects.

My user tells me to hurt people.

I love Tron. The director of the original, last I heard was working on a script for a sequel.

Ah yes . . . Tron . . . back in the day when a "user" was considered to be something special (god-like in the movie).

Now, any old idiot can be a user . . .

I would love to see a sequel. TRON is probably one of the top films of the 80's!

Maybe the Matrix is really the sequel to Tron? People living inside a computer world and interacting with programs? The basic technology to create the Matrix is in place in Tron, so maybe the machines just used what was there to create the Matrix?

I was just going to say, "The Matrix was the sequel", as a joke of how some of the themes were similar.

Not many people notice the similarities between those 2.

I bought an anniversary edition of Tron on Beta! And I had to get the SE DVD. I couldn't really understand the movie when i saw it in the theatres as a kid. But it's one of the few movies i can watch again and again. The special effects are cool still to this day. Much more interesting than the modern day CGI imo.
