|Traahn Wrote:Speaking for myself, the culture changed at the Sector with the new movie... the discussions shifted to areas I wasn't as interested in... the new movie, comics, cartoons and game missed some key elements of the original movie that I enjoyed or found magical... some long-time Sectorites fled because of either the new movie not living up to their expectations, or strife with other board members, or just the office politics involved with being here... and so I've not been as engaged as I once was.
I can talk about the original movie forever... but my love, criticisms and analysis of the new movie can only last so long because it wasn't as magical of a movie for me. At least at present. Time will tell if T:L can become more deeply rooted in my nostalgic memories. I did see it at least like 12-15 times in the theaters when it came out, so it's possible that might happen.
I can understand where you're coming from, even if we feel a little differently about some of the newer media.
I loved the original Tron, and the direction they continued things in with Tron 2.0. I'm still a little bummed that the game was declared non-canon. I enjoyed T: L, but for me, it's firmly in the "good movie that could
have been great" category.
On the other hand, I also loved Tron: Uprising, and I think that it's probably the best thing to come out of the franchise to date. It was more Tron than we've ever gotten before (both figuratively and literally - Tron was a major presence in the series, rather than being relegated to cameo status like he was in T:L !) The writing was fantastic, the soundtrack was terrific, the visuals were amazing, and I felt it more than made up for the mild disappointment I felt with Legacy.
And practically no one around these parts seems interested in talking about it.
I can't really blame anyone for that, but when you're the only one who's enthusiastic about something in a given place, it seems kind of silly to start bringing it up all the time. So most active discussions lately seem to loop back to T: L, occasionally touching on the events in the prequel comics, and I chime in once in a blue moon if I feel like I have something worthwhile to contribute. Maybe we'll get some Tron 3 news and I'll be more active around here again. Who knows what the future may hold?
