Notes on TRON: Legacy
  • It doesn't suck. It's not an all-time classic, but it's shiny and decently enjoyable. It's always a relief to get a sequel that is not facepalmingly poor.
  • Lots of references to the first film, some rather subtle (such as the hoarding above Flynn's arcade). I'm sure I missed some, not having seen the original for years.
  • Shiny.
  • Some of the references are purely for computer geeks ("Backus" and "Cray" as programs on the Game Grid?).
  • CLU is The Stig.
  • When the DVD comes out, I'm going to have to keep pausing it so I can read the computer screens.
  • Shiny.
  • It kind of ends before the plot starts.
  • They totally got the whole "beardy hippie free-software programmer as an action hero" idea from Richard Stallman's appearance in XKCD.
  • Did I mention the shiny?
