True, but since we're all here because we liked Tron, I don't think much harm would be done by sticking to a formula that worked for us once already.
The formula is pretty basic (in a good way). It's really very Wizard of Oz/stranger in a strange land/heroic journey at it's heart. And I do agree that this formula should be preserved. In fact, you may recall my endorsement for a remake. That's what I meant really. We don't all want the same thing. Some of us want the original characters, some of us want new ones. Some of us want the world of Tron to reflect modern technology, some of us don't see that as being necessary. As fan communities go, we lack a unified voice, though I tend to think this keeps things interesting around here.
Off topic: It looks like I'll be in Seattle again next year. You should try to come to the show again.
