Goodness Tron is Nerdy

I consider myself somewhat of geeky, but jeeze, original Tron, is pretty nerdtastic. I watched it for the second time last night, and between falling in and out of boredom I realized how high concept and computer geeky it is. Case in point.

Notice Pac-Man?

And for once I really truly believe that this is a movie deserving of a remake. It should have been made when the effects could keep up with it, and now that being a nerd is hip, what a perfect time.
Take a look at the updated lightcycles

And the ships

And the suits

Plus the viral promotion for it has been off the hook. Check out this game and see if you can find the video game references.

Everyone I’ve talked has had this movie bumped up straight to the top of their most anticipated movies of the year. It’s got cool effects, 3-D (which I guess is the most awesome thing ever lately), and a score by Daft Punk. Sign me up, I’m on the bandwagon. If you haven’t seen it yet, check out the trailer here. /tronlegacy/
