Saw TRON Legacy yesterday. Really nice production design and CGI. But I almost fell asleep anyways. Too much father-son talk for an action movie.

What are the programs that populate ‘The Grid’ doing anyways? Even a cyberspace where everybody’s just crunching prime numbers should look more amazing, colorful and faceted than the world of TRON which looks like a city that’s 2 blocks wide and is populated by about 10 people. And why the hell are airplanes emitting smoke in a virtual world that has pixelized fireworks?

In a nutshell: a visual feast, the thin script that’s basically expected from these kinds of blockbusters and the feeling that the whole thing could have been better.
