I just like that it's an actual sequel and not a "re-imagining" AKA rip-off.

And it's ALWAYS good to see Bruce "The ORIGINAL StarKiller" Beefcakener getting some work again. (That's a B5 reference for those of you unfamiliar with the best sci-fi series ever on TV :) )

I've been following the development of this for a while and hope it does well. It helps, to me at least that Daft  Punk, a great techno style group/duo is doing the soundtrack. The trailers are visually amazing and I'm hoping the story is well crafted. Probably not an 'oscar' movie but should be tons of fun. The toys are out and are kinda so-so. They have a light-up feature and the deluxe figs have some kind of 'image fancy doo-hickey' technology that projects the characters face onto its helmet and moves as it 'speaks'. That is pretty cool but limited.

Anyone catch Tron?  I haven't seen a movie in the theatres since IM2 and I'm hoping to go see this tomorrow in the third dimension...I guess.

I saw it last night.  I loved it, but could see why some people won't.

The effects are incredible.

I had no time to go see this today which means I missed out on the UltraScreen viewing so I will wait for ye ol redbox for home viewing.

I very rarely go to the movies but this time I went. This was a great movie! The effects were great and the story was good. I saw it in 2D.  This movie would make a great theme park ride. I'm in love with Wild. I can't wait to see her in Cowboys vs Aliens. I can't wait for the sequal.

I saw this on Christmas eve on the IMAX 3D screen and EP Center and it was very cool. The effects were great and the soundtrack was rockin'. The only effects issue were of course the KLU/young Jeff Bridges shots. Some were spot on, mostly when he wasn't talking, but a lot of the time really stood out as CG. I'd give the movie a solid 4 out of 5.

I always put those KLU/young Jeff Bridges shots as being what KLU looks like in his world. His world's graphics resolution weren't quite up to par yet to make him look realistic. He still used his creator's voice. So the imprefections fit in perfectly.

I saw it today in IMAX/3D and thought it was good.

I've just got back from seeing this terrible mess of a movie. The thing is it could have been so much worse so I can't complain too much.

I just got back from seeing this in 3D.  I thought it was really, really good.  I appreciated the throwbacks to the original, but the buddy I went with thought it was good all on it's own and he had no problem understanding anything even though he hadn't seen the original.

All in all, a good movie and I was glad I spent the cash to see it.

FInally got to see this with my son on Tuesday. Hadn't planned to see the 3D version but the times I found didn't specify which version and since it didn't cost TOO much more, we went. I was a little worried going in but I loved it and so did my son. THe visuals were outstanding especially in 3D. I thought the story worked pretty well with logical nods to the original IMHO.
and of course the Daft Punk soundtrack was totally rocking. We both walked out very pleased. But as with any niche movies, not everyone will like it and that is OK.
This will DEF be a dvd I buy when it comes out!

Well Tron didn't do as well as Disney hoped it would do in theaters. Disney was hoping for a Avatar-type box office for its opening weekend. It did ok though. It seems the Disneyland ride has been put on hold however the animated series on Disney XD is still going forward. Hopefully the DVD sales and the show will make Disney green light that ride and the sequal.

On the brighter side, there will be no Black Hole movie.  ;)
