Hey all

Anyone remember a c grade sci-fi movie called "Tron". I only ever saw it once and was about 8 at the time but I LOVED it. I'm sure that, compared with today's computer graphics, it would look pretty pathetic but I really enjoyed it. Then again, I was always a bit of a tom boy

Yeah, I remember it. Several of my friends almost flunked out of school because they spent all their time playing the game freshman year instead of going to class. I never had the patience to make it all the way through the movie.

Hi,

Tron is one of my favorite movies. The concept of being able to go "into" a computer really thrilled me at the time. Plus the movie had two of my favorite men actors in it: Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner. David Warner played an evil captain type and did a very good job too, though he always plays a good bad guy (remember the British policeman who roughs up Leo DiCaprio in "Titanic"?).

Yes, the CGI was quite primitive but let's remember that this was 1982!

Last summer I got to meet Cindy Morgan, who played one of the computer scientists, at the MegaFest con in Baltimore. I told her how jealous I was that she got to be in a movie with two such mega-hotties as Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner LOL.

I'm sure it is. Otherwise the movie makers might actually have to think of something original.
Any wonder that the last movie I paid to see was "Titanic"?
