Wow, this thread died a couple years ago.  Sad, after having so many posts, and going for almost ten years.

Well, I haven't watched (Tron) for a while, so I can't re-rez it for myself... but I just stumbled upon a website where a couple people (Mr. Uncommon Geek, and Mrs. Uncommon Geek) talk about their experience in seeing it on the big screen recently.  So, I'll re-rez the thread for that   They have a 15 minute podcast of his experience at the bottom of the page... and it's clear, they (especially him) definitely like   Even posts a photo he took of the 70mm film itself!  Good idea!  I've never thought to ask the theater to see the reel/film itself when I've watched the 70mm movie a small handful of times in theaters the past fifteen years.

I wonder if he's a member here?  Maybe he's posted it here before.  At any rate, here is the link:

End of line.

I would like a big screen viewing soon.  Wonder where the 70mm print is floating around these days

I'll resurrect this thread. Just watched Tron again last night, through Plex on my Nvidia Shield Android Tv, the digital copy is a 23gb Blu-Ray rip (mkv) with DTS 5.1 audio. I watch it at least every week, gotta be my favorite all time film, it just takes me back like no other.

I watched Tron last night after not seeing it for at least a year. 

I was noticing all the little details and differences between Legacy. 

For instance, in Tron, Flynn didn't need a disc to go back to the real world, in Legacy, though, Sam needs a disc to get back.

Maybe he needed it in order to bring Quorra into the Real World (on the grounds that she's not a human), and safe from Clu's clutches?
(I'm still here by the way, just been a bit busy lately  )

Ping!

..so I took a wrong turn somewhere!  I just watched Tron uninterrupted late last night on my laptop with some really good headphones.  The music and sound effects make up a lot of why the movie is so good.  You can really hear that bass when Sark turns into a giant and walks a few steps!

Did you ever notice that Flynn was never really worried in the computer world?  He laughed at Sark.  He didn't seem to care about what Lori or Tron thought.  That was pretty cool.  I think he knew he couldn't be hurt in that world.

 Ahh...the summer of '82!  Just graduated from high school.  Played a lot of GORF, Bosconian, Asteroids, Defender, and of course Tron with the blue joystick!!!   Good times!

PING!!

Over my nice Thanksgiving vacation I watched both Tron 82 and Tron Legacy!!  It's been quite a while since I've logged in and seen you guys.  It's so awesome to see the same names still posting here on a regular basis.  This is a site I am going to get back into the habit of checking as I missed you guys.

-D

PING
Decided to show the original to my 10 year old daughter tonight, she's seen it but she doesn't remember.  She's seen Legacy too in the theaters, but she was little - we even went to the Los ANgeles popup store and did a "color your own lightcycle" event back then.  

This all stemmed from her watching Daft Punk's anime Interstella 5555 and falling in love with Daft Punk's music...so then I told her about Legacy and she's dying to watch that but she needs to watch the original first.

I thin it still holds up nicely.  Hell I still think that the innards of computers look like the grid.

I watched TRON last on 70mm film at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood.  They were doing an 80's month and screened TRON several times.  They said that the film they had has been in archives for a long time (possibly never run through a projector before), and it looked beautiful an it was awesome to see it on the big screen.  I went with a few friends, and there were some original Intellivision software developers in the audience too, signing game boxes for some collectors.

How are you going to control the universe if you can't answer a few unsolvable problems?

PING and PING!

Last night I watched Tron for the 25th time, and I forgot to ping the 24th time I watched it, which was late July 2014. I couldn't believe it had been nearly 3 years since I last watched Tron! From now on I'm watching it at least once a year, hopefully more!
