Tron was one of my favorite movies growing up and I still like to pop it in occasionally. I loved the whole concept of being trapped in the game grid and feel that the special effects were very impressive for the time, and they still hold up pretty well. In fact, I think they work better than the effects on the recent sequel, Tron: Legacy. The clean sharp lines of the original look much cooler to me than the swishy neon effects that were used on the sequel. I did like that they used Jeff Bridges in dual roles but the CGI used to make him younger did not work for me and the Clu character just looked a bit creepy. Oh well, at least I have the original to still enjoy.
