|deadly_cookie Wrote:TR2N is subtle and makes perfect sense (and people automatically refer to it as Tron 2, or Tron sequel).|
I think it makes some sense, but not much. They are only using that for a nickname, or it would be like TR3N. Maybe for a title it seems cool, but using leetspeak only seems cool. It would be cool if it wasn't a mystery, and made me want to see it, just reading some spin in the title. Yeah two.. I get it..
|deadly_cookie Wrote:I disagree about Bruce's character (Tron) needing to come back, dispite the obvious that it's about Tron. Tron is about the WORLD which Tron is part of. He became something of a myth. Maybe Bruce is the new MCP?|
I disagree. That title needs a commonality that lifts the original movie beyond as a phoenix.
I thought to myself after Mr. Sinistar reminded us of the mysterious atmosphere in the end of the trailer, that what makes more sense to me, and adds to the plot quite nicely, that Kevin Flynn is in some way the MCP in that plot. Even if I'm wrong, he jumped into the MCP, came out unscathed, and had a printout of the evidence he needed to prove his case with Ed Dillinger owning space paranoids, and maybe four other games. The MCP has alot of explaining to be had in this new film. How much control did he maintain inside Encom when flynn hopped in his core? Did Flynn actually destroy him, did he take control over him in some other form? The rumors of MCP being in the next movie are certainly something that piques my curiosity.
It's not hard to think that Flynn was in a control room, and may be watching over and controlling the the digital landscape from his mountaintop fortress. He could be willing to destroy Tron if he must to keep him from being caught by a foe, or to keep Tron from destroying another system, and finding out his user is the enemy, there's all sorts of scenarios.. I can't make a good guess from the trailer and rumors, so that's about all I can think of, aside from what's written the other TR2N thread.
|deadly_cookie Wrote:Cheesyness will ruin it (weird terminologies: M3PO TRZ ZIP, PDA, INTERNET, FIREWALL), too much dialogue will ruin it (it has to be easy to digest, as the main interest of Tron is the ART/world of Tron, not so much the characters). Main characters revolving around Bridges/Bruce alone isn't too good either. Either Bridges avatar is the main character (which he controls by meditating), or new characters entirely.|
That's a problem with the original. People were thrown off by that strange artistic world, and saw little attachment to the characters by the mediums available to them. Just the opening visual of Kevin Flynn on a Space Paranoids arcade game. The coincidence of these programs built in that one facility, and appeared similar coincidentally - because they were so advanced at the field of computer sciences, was what people couldn't digest by the visuals alone. Back then, to most - a computer programmer was unimaginable, but those programs were imaginable, some could easily manifest in a simulated world of the mind with so much reason. But, few had been saturated in games - they would play out the character in thier mind and they didn't get it. Today, AI programs are easier to visualize since the simpler forms didn't quite catch the mind's eye, and because people made several treatments to characters/avatars that gives reason to artificial intelligence in nearly every form and fasion. Look at the opening dialogue in Star Wars, a ton of dialogue expanded the universe, it was a fast paced full motion picture, but Tron was made completely differently, yet potentially more complex, having needed to show every manifestation. It just has a certain feel to it that pulls you into the digital realm. It needs the explination of the pride that goes into that universe. It needs to be full on Tron over the top. I'm sure atleast we can agree on that..
|deadly_cookie Wrote:TRON 2.0 game does not exist (not relevant) to either movie (movies are movies/games are games, the two don't mix, exactly what kind of ruined the matrix as the game sort of interweaves with the movies). Any references to (especially) the game or the first movie isn't good. We all know what Tron is, and who played the characters in the first movie (only a fraction has played the game making it irrelevant). No reason to re-introduce/re-elaborate/re-explain, not relevant. Reuniting characters isn't particularly interesting if you want to keep it fresh and new. TRON was a given, TR2N needs to take things to the next level. Bridges (being something of a reclusive) was a nice touch as a cameo appearance thing (sort of suggesting TR2N will be something for the next generation), bringing back Bruce is a bit too much.
I'm already worried that this movie will turn out cheesy, esp. with the TRZ name-change. Next thing they'll be bringing back Wendy Carlos to do music scores. Things change, time changes. Keep it fresh and new (and static/dark).
The only thing I have to say, don't be paranoid.
There is much more suitable material going into this then ever went into the game, and the original. ...And cross your fingers.
