  10. At least he was honest about it.

    For whatever that's worth.

  11. To the anonymous poster who posted today at 3:38, yes, actually, it is.

    The original Tron was a what-if movie about a digital future full of potential, and it was strangely prophetic for a fantasy movie. Against this backdrop, the movie told a story about a pretty goofy guy who eventually grows into a mature enough person to be willing to sacrifice his life for his friends, without knowing what the consequences are.

    The new movie is more about our status as citizens of this brave new future, and just as the real digital future, it is a much darker vision than the idealist dreamland presented to us in 1982. It presents a story of loss, family, reuniting, courage, and I guess we'll find out what else its story is about when it comes out, won't we?

  12. Who could have ever thought it would be 'Sir Bacon' to show us the way...

  13. to Sir Bacon, no Tron is garbage... like worse than Pirates of the Caribbean garbage, and that's a mass market friendly 'color by number' style franchise. And, for your information, no Tron was ALL ABOUT the special effects. The story was practically and after thought.

  14. Woo! Nerd fight!

  15. SirBacon, just because you were on Tosh.0 doesn't mean you have to rub it in our faces.

  19. @sirbacon: It's okay to like something without trying to pretend that it's Srs Bsns.

  20. @Martha - It's also ok to be "Srs" about something interesting but nonvital, and that's not an excuse for a bunch of internet infants to have a U MAD BRO fit because someone uttered a sentence that might be construed as showing anything but casual dismissal of any topic, ever.

    You're all so fucking terrified of being caught paying attention to something, it's like culturally mandated ADHD and it's so tiresome aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

  21. @Socratic Method Man: Calm down. When did I say that he shouldn't care about Tron? I just find it annoying when people feel like they should only care about "important" things and therefore try to justify everything they like as important, even when it's something as totally non-vital as a cheesy 80s movie. I love a lot of completely ridiculous things, but I'm comfortable with admitting that they're ridiculous.

    You might think that "I love [thing], but I know it's not objectively great," is casual dismissal, but I disagree. I think it's more honest to love something despite its flaws than to try and justify it as some perfect work of art.

  25. To be fair, she distracted me. But she distracted me from the lack of story, so it was alright.
