Official Tron message board: Did you see it?

Infendo

I shirked work this morning to watch an early bird screening of Tron: Legacy.

AWESOME.

You planning on seeing the movie tonight? If so, swing back here after you watch it and let us know what you thought. As for me, I think it’s better than The Matrix, and a lot more fun. 1000x better than the original Tron.

You?

  1. My wife and I are going on tuesday or wednesday night (have to wait so the in-laws can babysit for us).

  2. In actual Nintendo news, Kid Icarus director Masahiro Sakurai tweeted a picutre of a Kid Icarus figurine.

    Nintendo will hold press events on the 19th in both Amsterdam and New York.

    3DS Game Card supplier Macronix has confirm that their cards can go up to 8GB in capacity.

    This has been your Guerrilla Nintendo New update.

    Now back to your regularly scheduled pointless fluff.

  3. gotta finish last minute assignments before going with some friends to watch it on wednesday!

  4. I’m going to catch it this weekend, if possible. I’m not a big fan of the original (I saw it opening day at Mann’s Chinese Theater), but I’ve always loved the concept!

    Jeff Bridges always rocks.

  5. We saw it in a sneak on this last Monday and it was pretty rad. Somehow my wife came away as a bigger Tron fan than I ever expected. She didn’t understand the original but this one seemed to resonate with her the way the original did for me when I saw it in theatres.

    Message received loud and clear, Infendo is a joke. As for Tron, the soundtrack might be good.

  7. Glad somebody agrees.

  8. I liked the movie. The only thing I had a problem with was some of the CG work looks like it was rendered on a PS3 or 360.

    Seriously if you don’t like the Infendo don’t log on to it dumb asses! Even if Tron is off topic you don’t have to click on it or read the damn article! Get lives you damn idiots! Oh yeah and by the way both your moms called and told you to move out of the f*cking basement, they’re tired of them smelling like sodomized gym socks!

  10. oh yeah and for everybody else i’ll be going to see it very soon!

  11. @Celtic Dragon: Don’t feed the troll(s).

  12. What a friend Infendo has in Celtic Dragon. As mindless and dithering as the main site itself.

  13. A sequel to a movie that has lead many people in to the game industry, including many that have worked on Nintendo related products. One that most of the user base of Indendo probably has seen at one time or another (Or has, at least, heard about) and that, even if a person doesn’t like it, has the iconic status not many movies find.

    Yes…I shall be seeing it tomorrow. Hopefully it doesn’t suck 🙂

  14. Saw it, Loved every scene

    The only problem is that the 3D is kinda “thrown in” than incorporated into the movie, making it feel like plastic.

    Favorite Scene: The villan’s evil speech of how he will take over the world blah blah
    So many barrel rolls!

  15. @Celtic Dragon Have much emotional stability there big guy. As for infendo, everyone loves a train wreck.

  16. yeah, i’m watching it on this coming tuesday night. i’ve been anticipating this movie for about a year now.

  17. @ go getter

    how is tron off topic? its all about the video games. tron is one of the first video game movies. plus, there’s a bunch of new tron games, even on nintendo platforms. i hope everyone has played the classic tron games. or maybe i’m just too damn old for anyone to remember, as evidenced by the couple of comments here.

  18. Saw Tron last night and wasn’t too impressed, to be honest. I thought that the action was very, very well done, but after the first 45 minutes or so it just dropped off and was pretty boring until the last 10 minutes of the movie. For a first time director, I’d say it was a great movie.
    Personally, i find 3D pointless and actually kinda annoying. The effects of it are never very impressive and you’re bored of it by the end of the movie. Then again, I am half blind, so it doesn’t work quite so well with me 😀

    >As for infendo, everyone loves a train wreck.

    If its really such a train wreck then why are you on it? It would be most logical to get off a train that is ,as you say, going to be a wreck. Especially if little to no one on the train likes you and your trollish comments.

  20. @JMC New to the English branch of colloquialisms I see. Don’t give up, you’ll get it some day.

  21. Might see it before its out from the 3D cinemas in my town of Linköping, Sweden.

  22. Are you actually serious? Stylistically, lovely. Music, good. PLot, absolutely woeful and all over the place.
