Product Description

Tron (20th Anniversary Collecto

Amazon.ca

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.

Did you grew up with Tron in your childhood? Maybe you played the Tron video game and spent far too much time in tank and lightcycle battles, battling the MCP, until you were out of quarters? Whether that describes you or not, you owe it to yourself to pick up this classic version. The special effects in the movie have stood the test of time surprisingly well. The graphics are of course relatively simplistic and low resolution compared to Tron Legacy, but I find it lends credence to the concept of an environment created within a computer system; especially those that existed at the time. None of that, however, detracts from the top-notch acting and the story, which is both timeless and very well written.

Pick this up today and enjoy a piece of history.

Tron is so outdated in so many ways but strangely endearing. It has a truly bizarre feel and it is obvious that Disney was really experimenting here. Tron has historical significance and there is a strange, haunting quality that lingers in the mind. The fact that they made the sequel, Tron: Legacy, nearly 30 years later says a lot.

There are ample special features.

I remember watching Tron on TV during the mid 80s and while i enjoyed the movie I had virtually forgotten about it and how important a movie it really is for early CGI fans.

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.

Despite many of the bad opinions that some people have of this movie, Tron is a classic that is underappreciated by most people. The amount of work that went into making this movie is incredible. And as for "sarah, moviefreak"'s list placing this movie as one of the worst game-to-movie made, this movie was made before the game.

Preamble: Flynn (Jeff Bridges) is an ace software programmer who writes his own video games using his company's mainframe computers. A fellow (and jealous) software programmer, Ed Dillinger, finds the games on the company's computers, realizes Flynn's brilliance and steals the code to present to the company, naming himself as the author. Forward several years, Flynn has been dismissed from the company which has now prospered due to the videogame sales falsely attributed to Dillinger, and runs an arcade, somewhat ironically, filled with his own video games. A few of his friends stayed on with the video game company (which has now moved on to more experimental and expansive applications from the proceeds of the video game sales), and are having difficulties with a promoted-to-head-honcho Dillinger who is now trying to upgrade a "Master Control Program" which effectively limits any abilities for the software programmers to control and access their work on their computer terminals (there are definitely some human versus machine, individual versus oppression, "I'm not a number, I'm a man!" type themes working throughout the whole script here, albeit in a rather simplistic and clumsy effort that loses all credence by the time you realize that the moral of the story basically is still a bunch of numbed-up kids feeding quarters into a series of machines for one guy, and whoever he sees fit, to get rich off of). In order to get back into their computers, they seek out the hacking talents of Flynn to break into the system and change their security clearance level. In exchange, Flynn realizes he has the opportunity to try and find the original versions of the files he created, and thus prove that he was the developer who programmed the video games, and not Dillinger.Read more ›

I havent seen the DVD version so Im not sure what problems people have had, but I can review the movie, (and what an excellent movie it is! )
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.
