I reviewed Tron: Legacy over on G4's The Feed back in December, and I won't bore you with why I think it's a terrific film. Just accept that it is. Yes, I'm a Tron purist, and the first time I saw it I missed a lot of the flavor and spirit of the original. But then, something strange happened: the movie grew on me. The second time I saw it, I realized that there was some pretty impressive stuff in there, and that the story could stand well enough on its own. Then the third time, I realized that I loved the damn thing.
Now, if a movie takes three times to convince you that it's good, does that make it worth it? The same thing happened to me with Jackie Brown, and now I love that film too. So maybe some things just need to grow on you. Like a rash. Except in a good way. The film came out on on Blu-ray this week, and it my love affair with it still continues. In fact, it's even stronger now with some of the easter eggs that tease a possible third Tron film could be on the way, and it also offers up a sneak peek at Tron: Uprising. It's animated and features Bruce Boxleitner as Tron. What's not to love? Well, Chris Gore obviously doesn't agree.
