I loved the movie meself. It's fun....slow...but fun. And a visual treat still to this day. TRON was not critically acclaimed (except maybe in the visual area), and many folks consider it to be a dull movie. But I frakking loved it.

And damn, Cindy Morgan back then....phwoaarrr!

Did you know that Bruce Boxleitner (Alan/Tron) and Cindy Morgan (Lora/Yori) did voice acting for the PC/Xbox game Tron 2.0?

Boxleitner reprised his role as Alan Bradley, father to Jet Bradley. Cindy Morgan played a program called MA3A (pronounced Muh three uh). The story line is interesting, and it was considered to be an official sequel to TRON the movie.

But now, with TRON 2 the movie coming out, I am wondering if that will still be the case?

I have that game and all 4 figures that went to it. Including Mercury and her big tits. I knew Boxleitber was in it but I didn't know or forgot about Morgan's involvement. They also rereleased the classic tron figures, I got all of those too and all 3 light cycles. Actually his last name was Bradey(I think) in the movie but I see the wiki page has been changed to suit the game..

I always liked The Black Hole better than TRON.

If you ever manage to get it, get the TRON 20th anniversary DVD...it has a LOT of cool featurettes, and goes into the process of how the film was made...and even discusses the Oscar snubbery.

That sounds like a homework assignment, fellow movie lover! OK, I'm game!

I thought the Tron 2.0 game was weak, but I love the movie and cannot wait for Tron Legacy. I mean I've watched the reveal of the new ligthcycle @ Comic-Con on YouTube countless times now.

Nice to see the Huumans arguing over awards which are "futile", the BORED have decreed that Kirk and his 1701 be assimilated, NOW COMPLY

I think Trek got snubbed because there wasn't anything Oscar worthy, except for the visuals and sound. Looks like I wasn't the only one that thinks NuTrek was only fluff, fun fluff... but fluff none the less

If there is an Oscar for "film most likely to cause an epileptic seizure", then all those lens flares would have made NuTrek a shoe-in!!
