Visions of Tron

August 6, 2017 Tron provides simple, beautiful electronic landscapes

Some films go beyond its audience. Their clear visions come at a price. Steven Lisberger's Tron is one such film, it premiered in 1982 and grew no audience. "It's too confusing", that was the comment i kept hearing from friends who saw it with me many years ago. The rest of the world seemed to agree. But that consensus has changed. Two decades later it's considered a classic. What happened? Is it a severe case of audience jet lag ?. Maybe yes; we had to catch up on computer technology. I enjoyed the film, now and then. From costume design to screenplay Tron stands tall.

Dressed for success

Tron's costumes are a landmark in design. Observe them carefully, they have complex, colorful, intense circuitry. Although they are one of the iconic images of the film, these costumes were not drawn by a computer, real artists painted them. Their names are listed in the end credits in Taiwanese. The filmmakers used traditional 'photographic animation'. The director filmed the actors wearing spandex costumes against a black background, then each frame was retouched in multiple layers. Instead of animating a 'drawing', the filmmakers animated a photograph. All frames were painted in Taiwan and sent back to America. This is a computer movie built, in part, without the help of computers. The result is a unique, retro-futuristic look. But if a filmmaker wanted to reprise the look of Tron today, he would need to replicate this painful, expensive technique used more than 20 years ago. Such attempt is not an appetizer to any movie studio nor investor, it just does not happen anymore. Tron is electronic art.

My Favorite Movie of All-Time

Tron is a 1982 Science Fiction film directed by Steven Lisberger and stars Jeff Bridges, David Warner, and Bruce Boxleitner. It was distributed by Disney and I consider it my favorite film of all time.

Tron follows the story of a "young, bright" game programmer and arcade owner Kevin Flynn (Bridges), whose job is taken away by another employee of ENCOM, Dillinger (Warner). Wanting to find evidence of taking Flynn's credit and selling games under his name. With the help of Alan (Boxleitner) and Lora, he goes into the world of Tron, "where energy lives and breathes".

The characters in Tron are a little shallow, especially the titular character. Flynn and Dillinger, along with his digital counterpart, Sark, pretty much steal their scenes. Flynn himself was somewhat a Jesus figure on the grid who was really an everyday guy which is kinda neat to think about. Sark himself gives off a menacing presence in his scenes, though with a little bit of humor attached.

I love this movie. The reason it is my favorite is due to the huge impact it had on my life ever since i've first heard about it. It has quite the reputation in visual effects being the first ever movie to include extensive use of CGI in 1982 (20 minutes worth). The distinct style of the world Tron presents bear a huge impact on cyberpunk culture and it's early representation on computers as a positive impact.

Tron includes themes of Religion and Technology. One of the main points of the movie as mentioned before is that Flynn is Jesus on the grid and Tron represents a "David the Warrior" type figure. Tron envisioned technology better than most movies of the past using computer-literate terms to describe the world and what characters do, though to a degree.

Tron didn't do well during its time and became a cult classic over the years. There is and are people who can appreciate the film the most for nostalgia and visuals with a pretty big impact. This is one of those films that people say "isn't for everyone".

Overall, I give Tron a…

Visually Stunning And Yet Boring

Tron looks beautiful with its special effects and Cyberpunk elements but fails miserably with its dildo story and boring ass pacing. I was shocked that my consciousness was intact throughout. Well that is pretty much it. Five lines huh? Okay. Well I guess I could recommend this turd to those...... Oh look at that. 5 lines. Bye.
