So, I just watched the movie "Tron" for the first time in God knows how long, and for all its relentless hamminess and incomprehensible plot points, it's a pretty entertaining film.
To be sure it is a visually distinct film and as far as I know there's nothing else that really looks like it. No movies look like this today because they don't have to. Without any real limits in regards to how realistic computer imaging can be, there's no need to actually "design" visual effects anymore. But I suppose no one is interested in creating a movie that essentially relies on the technology of the time for its plot. Makes sense I guess.
Perhaps Jeff Bridges' best role next to The Dude.
Oh, and this is a great excuse to show you this:
My eyes itch like hell. 'Night.
(I swear I'll post drawings soon.)
