This Is the Best Thing in Tron Legacy

A lot of people looking for the perfect movie are going to be disappointed today. According to most reviews, Tron's not the Messiah, just a very naughty boy. But there's something amazing about it, something that will blow your underpants off.


It's the soundtrack. Not only the perfect Daft Punk score—which to me is one of the best albums of 2011—but the sound design itself. The work of Sound Re-Recording Mixer Gary Rizzo, Supervising Sound Editor Gwen Yates Whittle, and Sound Designer Steve Boeddeker, is amazing.

I honestly don't understand the hate on the movie. I saw it last night (well, this morning), and the plot was fine. It wasn't amazing, but it didn't need to be. I don't know why anyone expected a great plot. Have any of the reviewers seen the first movie? It's plot can be summarized in a paragraph, if not less, and the sequels plot follows a similar theme.

The movie was visually incredible, the soundtrack was unbelievable, and the plot was alright! Is it going to win 'Best Picture?' Hell no! Is it going to be remembered as one of the best movies of the century? No way!

But it's not supposed to do any of these things. Disney advertised it too much, had it been given less attention in the past few weeks, it would have gotten better reviews because peoples expectations would be lower.

Just go see the movie. Ignore the plot; the visuals had me smiling and having a good time for the whole movie, and at times I caught myself bobbing my head to the beat. It's an awesome movie, and I can't wait to see it again.

Oh one last thing, the IMAX was almost disappointing, there wasn't anything that seemed to be IMAX spectacular over a regular movie. And the 3D was very subtle, there were some cool moments with it and the contrast between grid and not-grid with the 3D was creative.
