Ok, I liked the first Tron movie... my close friends will tell ya I aint hard to please, but I liked it. I have been keeping close tabs on the sequel since I found out about from the Comicon footage last year... I have to say it LOOKs awesome.
Recently I have had a bad run of luck on movies I have highly anticipated, I.E. the SW prequels, Matrix II and III and The Last Air Bender to name a few. So I am hoping the hype and indeed the released imagery is as good as what we have seen so far and that the story is good enough... thats all I am asking.... Good enough.
I have a friend, I shall protect his true identity by calling him Amocay, he is the biggest Tron fan I know and has been for as long as I have known him, I believe his computer used to log on with “Greetings Program”, I hope the movies are good for his sake. If the movie is successful maybe we’ll see more Dark Future/ cyberpunk kinda films, addaptions of Sterling and Gibson’s work.
It is odd to note that of most of my friends, I am the only one that really embraces the Cyberpunk, or Dark Future Genre. Most of the gang are True Fantasy or Sci-Fi “It aint Space I ain’t Watch’n” kinda folk. In a earlier post I alluded to the mocking I sometimes get about Bladerunner. I remember back in the day thinking Max Headroom was a Awesome show but I also remember being disappointed by some of the drek that also came out “Free Jack” and “Johny Mnemonic” come to mind. I’d love to see a movie that really shows the Cyber-Hackers world and think we are at a point to show it.
