Tron (20th Anniversary Collecto
The surprising truth about Disney's 1982 computer-game fantasy is that it's still visually impressive (though technologically quaint by later high-definition standards) and a lot of fun. It's about a computer wizard named Flynn (Jeff Bridges) who is digitally broken down into a data stream by a villainous software pirate (David Warner) and reconstituted into the internal, 3-D graphical world of computers. It is there, in the blazingly colorful, geometrically intense landscapes of cyberspace, that Flynn joins forces with Tron (Bruce Boxleitner) to outmaneuver the Master Control program that holds them captive in the equivalent of a gigantic, infinitely challenging computer game. Disney's wizards used a variety of cinematic techniques and early-'80s state-of-the-art computer-generated graphics to accomplish their dynamic visual goals, and the result was a milestone in cyberentertainment, catering to technogeeks while providing a dazzling adventure for hackers and nonhackers alike. Appearing just in time to celebrate the nascent cyberpunk movement in science fiction, Tron received a decidedly mixed reaction when originally released, but has since become a high-tech favorite and a landmark in special effects, with a loyal following of fans. DVD is a perfect format for the movie's neon-glow color scheme, and the musical score by synthesizer pioneer Wendy Carlos is faithfully preserved on the digitally remastered soundtrack. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

Pick this up today and enjoy a piece of history.
There are ample special features.
Tron looks simply stunning on DVD and I think of it as more a work of art than a movie. The hours of painstaking work involved in making this movie back in 1982 must have been unbelievable, but amazingly it got completed and has stood the test of time quite well. The bonus features are very well done and tell you virtually everything you will ever want to know about Tron and its creation. I also enjoyed watching the movie with the audio commentary, which I found both informative and amusing. The new
5.1 dolby soundtrack is simply stunning and has to be heard to be believed.
I was trying to think of a movie to compare Tron with, but to be honest Tron is a true original. The computer world which Flynn enters looks beautiful and was designed to resemble the line 'vector' graphics which were cutting edge videogame technology back in 1979-1982. Everything that takes place inside the computer has a neon look, backlit using blue, red, yellow, etc.
If you are a fan of videogames, computers or just 80's retro, buy this movie and take a trip into the world of Tron.
Being a kid when video games were relatively new, Tron fulfilled all my dreams of being in an actual computer game! Imagine VR without the head gear, cool or what! Though the graphics arent up to todays standards, its still a visually stunning movie thats always entertaining.
What can I say about the cast, Jeff Bridges, Michelle Pieffer and Bruce Boxleitner, are well suited for their respective roles, enhancing the movie with acting talents.
Though this movie is old, kids these days might not enjoy it as I do, but then again this is a classic! If you like the idea of being transported into another world, and fighting your way back out with the help of some damn smart computer gen individuals then Tron is for you. Get a hold of a copy and enjoy.

The DVD came quickly, in good shape and in good working order. No issues, watched it a few times already, as it's one of my all time favorite movies.
Love this steelbook. For starters, it has a nice matte feel to it. The "TRON" logo on the front along with the border is nicely embossed. Read morePublished 13 months ago by angelis782003
