Tron Combo Package Review

I used to love watching the original Tron movie, and even more enjoyed playing the video game.  We were given the opportunity to review the combo package that is available.  The combo pack comes with Blu-ray,Blu-Ray 3D, DVD, and Digital Copy.  The most impressive part of this package is the 3D version.  Not many videos come with a 3D copy included.  This is a bold move, and one that will work.

If you haven’t watched the original Tron, then I would definitelly suggest you get this package so that you can watch them back to back.  There were a lot of things that I understood better after watching the original version, then watching the Blu-Ray verson.

This movie made a lot of sense because the movie actually continues in the storyline.  There are no major missing pieces as you find in a lot of “Series” movies.  Jeff Bridges did an excellent job in his part in the movies.

I definitely recommend this movie to any Sci-Fi fan, and even more than that any “Series” fan.  I know I will watch this movie many more times, and one of my friends also will watch this movie many more times.

Tron: Legacy A Rundown Of What’s Coming

How many of you are Tron fans?  Well, if you liked Tron, then get ready for some blue light therapy.  I did like the original Tron, and can’t wait to see what they do in Tron: Legacy.  Tron: Legacy is scheduled to release in December 2010.  Some of the actors are Jeff Bridges, Bruce Boxleitner,
Garrett Hedlund, and Olivia Wilde.

The graphics in the original Tron were amazing for the technology that was present.  The new one will probably far surpass what anyone can imagine.

Tron: Legacy is an upcoming 2010 science fiction film. It is a sequel to the 1982 Academy Award-nominated film Tron. Joseph Kosinski makes his feature film directorial debut with Tron: Legacy, while the previous film director, Steven Lisberger, returns as a producer. Jeff Bridges reprises his role as Kevin Flynn, and Bruce Boxleitner his roles as Alan Bradley and Tron, while Garrett Hedlund portrays Flynn’s now-adult son, Sam.[2] The other cast members include Olivia Wilde, Beau Garrett, Michael Sheen and John Hurt.[1] At over twenty-eight years, this film marks the longest gap between a live-action film and its theatrical sequel in Hollywood history.

According to the teaser trailer shown at the 2008 and 2009 San Diego Comic-Con, the film will be presented in Digital 3-D and IMAX 3D.[3] On September 3, 2009, Walt Disney Pictures announced that Tron: Legacy will appear in theaters on December 15, 2010;[4] however, in the more recent trailer preceding Alice in Wonderland the release date was stated as being December 17, 2010.

Here is a trailer for Tron: Legacy…
