#tronsucks versus #tronrocks

Posted on: December 5, 2010

I came up with a new idea for my film reviews – the one word review… however, with all this tension with the Tron reviews only being allowed after 10pm today, I feel I should give it a bit more than that!

We’ve been preparing for the amazing sequel for years now and over the past year I literally felt overwhelmed with the marketing it got. In the end, this is Disney’s 3D masterpiece of 2010 and it should be treated that way. I must admit that I am neither a fan nor a hater of the genre and that the trailers and anticipation really didn’t make me scream when I heard Tron was the second film of the day at @showfilmfirst yesterday. (I honestly hoped it wasn’t although all signs pointed to it!)

So…. I say Tron: Legacy is a…… geekmajestic juicy bed time story 🙂

To define and explain my phrase, #tronrocks in 3D technology, special effects and sound (yes, the super sci-fi Tron world was majestically created) + in the IT, digital stuff (my boyfriend tried to explain how all the digital theory was put together and how it actually made sense to an engineer…) + Daft Punk OST (!!!!) and #tronsucks in the simplicity of the story, the stereotypes (don’t want to use spoiler alert here so I’m not going to explain which ones) and the so-predictable ending!!!!

For more on Tron try this review which I really thinks it makes the film justice, from a connoisseur’s point of view .

I’ll post the trailer in case there is actually anyone out there who doesn’t know what  I’m talking about:

And even if I’m not for marks and percentages, let’s say 3/5 for the winter blockbuster…

LE: didn’t want to say this earlier as I thought it was just me, but as I see I’m not the only one booooing itt: the acting was pretty bad as well… 😦

I was really looking forward to this, but ended up hating it. The story was awful, the SFX too unreal, the CGI on Jeff Bridges’ face is still a few years away from working the way it should.

Sorry to say, I was even bored.

Oh Young Jeff in the first scenes looked like Prince Charming in Shrek or something! I was quite amazed that with all the high-tech in the film, this was so poorly done.

I honestly hoped it would make me feel a bit ashamed of underestimating the whole idea after seeing all the trailers and publicity. But it didn’t…. and I don’t really think it will have anything to do with the fans of the first one… that was so long ago! And back then Tron was really a breakthrough in film technology, but the sequel come in Avatar times…

oanajinga, that’s awesome!! HAHAHAH Prince charming!! you are sooooo right!
I’m still laughing.
