New Poll: TR2N or TRZ?

on Tuesday, December, 09, 2008 8:09 PM


Since Disney has apparently decided to go with the even dumber name of TRZ for the sequel, I thought I'd create a poll about it.

TR2N or TRZ Poll
Vote on whether you prefer TR2N, TRZ, or something else. Let Disney know what you think.

I would embed the poll in my post here on Tron-Sector, if I could. But TS doesn't allow HTML in posts any more, for security reasons.

Not to state the obvious.. I don't like being in a data-mining statistic, um.. so I'll state the obvious.

The closest any computerized laser lab will ever come close to the power of a machine like EN-511 in this lifetime is the Z-machine.

Capable of producing 2 billion degrees kelvin, hotter than H3 fusion-hot. and some people have the opinion that gamma radiation is the only thing powerful enough to pull a "digitization" stunt off, which means it could be some future tech on Tron's level of weirdness..

If, by some chance the director of Tron has the Z-M lab for his movie, I would say do it. this thing will blast a hole through a mountain. so be it. The technology must be up to par with True tech. I'm not for nor against stupid names if the companies involved are open to the original creators.

Ok, I don't think that name has anything to do with Tron. that being said, it's rediculous. The problem is probably people who got fired (hello economy)making up some news available which has nothing to do with us, as far as I care. TRZ is retarded I doubt there is a reason to name of a movie like Tron. haha... trz.

Considering that TRZ is the identification code for an airport in India, I say we stick with TR2N to reduce confusion among TRON fans who look up airport codes.

I personally really liked , but everyone thought it was leetspeek (and it's not supposed to be) and bashed it to infinity.

I'm a little shaky on the idea of the plot synopsis that was revealed, it sounds too much like Star Wars or the original TRON to some extent.

Sorry, Disney, looks like you'll have to come up with another crappy title that will kill the movie.

I *sigh* every time I see TRZ.

I hope it has nothing to do with "Tron" (the name) being owned by some other company. Isn't that the case? E.g., Tron.com is some non-Disney company doing something non-Disney-related.

*TRZ* Ugh.

*TRZ* Ouch. Ugh.

*TRZ* Ugh.

I feel like I'm getting shock treatment every time I hear *TRZ*

Ouch. Ugh.

I had a feeling that either they are on a budget and couldn't afford the extra effort, no just kidding, sorta, (I agree w/ your theory) if they downplay the worlds of Tron, and ignore it due to other competitors products, and worse, were lobbied to make it a stupid film, setting it back in "1982" they are lzr. The party(s) in question should be drawn and quartered.

Yes, maybe the main characters in it will be Flyzz, TRZ, Yorzzi, RAMZZ, CLUZ, CROMZIZZLE, Bitzzy, Dumonz, Sarz and the evil MCZ. Oh, almost forgot.. Dizzinger, too.

they don't want to call it "TRON" because there is no TRON/Alan/Bruce

i hope not

Bruce said earlier this year, something to the effect that he wants to be in the next movie.

Too much grease and not enough machine if you ask me. maybe someone gummed the movie up in an effort to circumvent potential material going to future movies, or is using fear as a factor in making it memorable.

w/o the answers, it's not easy to guess, so I'll make opinion. If they made it like the original, they would have to live up to what it translates to. So they may be doing the same thing that doomed the first in making sub structured plots and anecdotes to make somebody happy, instead of retain what dignity the movie still has to bring it above the material that other film makers reveal to make award winning long lasting memories for everyone to enjoy.

I took the poll yesterday, but didn't have time to reply.

I'd prefer "TR2N" or "TRON 2" or "Kevin Flynn and the Digitizer of Doom".

Seriously, TR2N or TRON 2. I don't care for TRZ, at least not in use with a TRON film. As an acronym for Totally Retarded Zebra, it's fine, but not as a name of a TRON film. If they stick with TRZ, I'm a little worried about what other dumb things they're going to do with it. Then again - what's in a name, right? We all thought "The Phantom Menace" was a dumb name when it was first leaked to the pubic and then the film turned out to be... well dumb. Oh CRAP!

See, you're thinking just like me. People should care about the title.

Once the compromises start with such a dumb title, where do they end? It's a slippery slope. First it's just the title. Before you know it, they're consulting focus groups about every little thing. Are the costumes (CGI or otherwise) "hip" enough? Can we do product placements in the electronic world? Can we make it appeal to the street racing crowd? (Think of all the neon TR2N lights we can sell to street racers, who will put them on their cars!)

TRZ is stupid. I mean, what is it? An acronym? A character in the story? Think about the T.V. and radio usage: how do you pronounce it? "Troz"? "Trez"? It's simply just a dumb title for a movie.

TR2N is better, but it's like $2 is better than $1. $2 is still a small amount of money. What's it supposed to be? "Tron 2" play on spelling?

Anything that makes any sort of reference to "Tron" is right out inappropriate if the character of Tron isn't one of the main characters the story, and certainly stupid if Tron isn't even IN the story at all. Also, since Tron is a character (albeit, a personification of a computer program), the character has already been defined and characterized by the actor Bruce Boxleitner. If he doesn't reprise his role as Tron in a sequel, then it becomes like the Batman films with a different actor playing Batman every few years. (How would it have been if an actor other than Mark Hamil played Luke Skywalker in The Empire Strikes Back? I appreciate the studios who at least attempt to make an effort at maintaining continuity with sequels.)

I pick a title that interesting represents what the film is about, even if the letters "T", "R", "N" (and sometimes "O") aren't in it. I also hope the movie is a sequel rather than a remake, and a good one too.

Hey, there's been plenty of great movies with bad names (or bad in my opinion at least). "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" is a horrible title. Why would I want to see that movie? Who's Bill and Ted? Why the heck should I care? "Pee-Wee's Big Adventure". Kinda funny, how that movie has plenty of great jokes that adults can enjoy, and yet it sounds like a children's movie. "UHF". That sounds like the most boring movie ever. A movie about a kind of television station that essentially no longer exists? Why should I watch it?!?

All examples of great movies with bad names. (the name-game, if you will)

I've always thought TRZ was pronounced either "T R Z" or "Turz", which sounds kinda like "turd" which really doesn't do too much good on the publicity side of things.

If they don't change it before 2009, and start advertising it as "TRZ" on that new television channel, then we're definitely screwed, and this movie will fail at the box office.

Every time I see TRZ I epic facepalm.

The Z in TRZ is supposed to be an N turned 90 degrees.

I prefer TR2N.

Cheers
