When Walt Disney Pictures released their futuristic sci-fi hit Tron in 1982, the entire world was on its feet, stewing with theories and overcome with curiosity due to this new visual style which gave moviegoers and inside look at hypothetical computer graphics in a world of virtual reality.
More than just the stunning visual effects at the time, Tron also made people wonder – will the machines we’re building eventually rise? Well, they didn’t rise up and hold us hostage, of course. But movies like Tron did inspire a generation to take computer technology to a new level.
We’re seeing the results today, and the upcoming release of Tron: Legacy is sure to be another Disney cult classic, but they hit the right spot - bingo and we got a great movie!
In the original movie, the hacker Kevin Flynn, played by Jeff Bridges, was lost in the virtual world after battling the self-sustaining consciousness that was the machine. In the sequel, Flynn’s son Sam, played by Garrett Helund, is a new-age, tech-savvy 27-year-old looking to get to the bottom of his father’s disappearance.
The movie presented some high sci-fi events that took place and changed the way we view our movies. The effects really came hard on the viewers, to a point where they hit the exact soft point - bingo! The impact was so strong on the viewers that even professional poker players started to loose focus, hands and money even on the best poker site online. So strong, they made another movie just describing the effect.
To tell you the truth I haven't seen this movie yet but many people told me to watch it(in the past years), this movie is so highly recommended that I will see it soon to try to understand what everyone is talking about:
The Sci-Fi movie "Star Wars" from 1977 made a huge impact on other Sci-Fi movies, many made star wars series and new versions of the movie that turned out great, most of the credit should go to the original movie, watch one of the episodes:
