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

I agree that is good news, otherwise they would have inevitably ruined what was a stellar motion picture sci-fi epic of its day.

They would have recruited actors about half the age of the original cast, turned VINCENT and Maximillian into CGI abominations, and completely re-written a perfectly serviceable script with none of the targedy or pathos of the original.

Also, one of the best soundtracks ever.

Tron Legacy will DEF be a dvd I buy when it comes out. oh and I thought they 'were' gonna do a 'Black Hole' remake, NOT that they need to do one.

I have a site saved that has been streaming the entire soundtrack, including european tracks not available on the amrican cd or even itunes.
About 26 tracks in all. very cool soundtrack indeed.

Went & saw TRON last nite, really enjoyed it. Loved the nods to the original, the toys & posters & the Coleco handheld Quaterback game & yes the Black Hole.  ;D
The CGI Jeff Bridges was very good, well done. Will be getting the dvd when it's released.

I got to see it too.  I don't think I've seen the original for over 20 years, so maybe that helped, but I really enjoyed the movie.  The nods were pretty cool indeed. 

Yum.

We recently got a Blu Ray player and I could not resist getting the 5-disc Blu Ray pack for Tron.

It comes with:

-Tron: Legacy 3D Blu Ray
-Tron: Legacy 2D Blu Ray
-Original Tron on Blu Ray
-Tron: Legacy DVD
-Tron: Legacy Digital Copy

Amazon has it for $52.

I picked up the regular dvd a couple weeks ago and have watched it twice. It's really grown on me and love the movie even more now. Lots of subtle nods to the original one. I noticed a similarity between Flynn's speech on the beginning of the movie to Clu's speech towards the end as he describes both times how 'our destiny is in/out there'. PLus the soundtrack really jams even more now! Long live the User!

For anyone who's interested... a buddy of mine was a concept artist on Tron and I stumbled across this interview with him today looking for reference for a Nike job I'm on right now:
