Tron Legacy

Way back in 1982, Disney released a science fiction movie called TRON. A few years later, I was able to watch this movie and absolutely loved it. For those of you who do not remember this movie, below is a custom trailer that a fan put together of the old film.

I even bought the DVD of this movie and continue to watch it every so often even until now. Retro-Geekery, I know. This movie was actually one of the main inspirations/motivations behind me getting into programming when I was a kid. Yet, it's still very astonishing to me that my job career nowhere near involves programming. I still miss programming. I just don't have the time to delve into it these days.

In 2003, a PC game was released as a sequel of sorts of the movie TRON. Below are two trailers of the PC game. I actually loved playing this game given it was in full 3D glory.

A few days ago, a friend of mine sent me a link to a YouTube video that previews an upcoming sequel to the old school sci-fi flick. Below is that preview snippet that was debut at the Comic Con in the U.S..

Pure and unadulterated geeky arousal came upon me when I saw an aged-Flynn (Jeff Bridges) who now seems to be the antagonist of this new TRON film. I can't wait to watch it.

Oh, and this is obviously where I got "END OF LINE" from, that I place at the end of all my blog posts. LOL!
