Poetical cyberadventure
Excuse me, but : wow ! I feel sorry for those who are disillusioned, but Tron (1982) is nothing to me but pure magic ! A poetical "cyberadventure" where the cyber world is a methaphorical representation of the "real" one. And to think that those images were produced, and more unbelievable, imagined, in the early eighties ! OK, by today's standards, it might not look so impressive to some viewers, but still... And the imagination behind that movie, those graphics : wonderful ! I wish to be yet surprised by unexpected ideas such as Tron. And I am not necessarily thinking about a sequel : just surprise me ! Tron (1982) : a classic of the 7th art !

Quotes

Boy in Video Game Arcade: All right, give me room. Here we go.


Goofs

When Alan leaves his cubicle to see Dillinger (after he finds the Tron program unavailable), the line between the built set and the matte painting of the cubicles moves distinctly (clearly visible on the DVD).


Crazy Credits

Certain versions of the European/American re-release have the explanatory title cards establishing the viewer into the world of the Programs and Users.


Alternate Versions

The 20th Anniversary DVD edition includes a deleted love scene: Tron and Yori go to her apartment, where she pushes a button on the wall, the walls disappears and her uniform changes into a different costume. Tron ask her " How do we get into the I/O Tower". She replies "First, you have to go all the way down" as she moves her hand down Tron's body. Also included are a partially completed "morning after" scene (after Tron visits Yori's apartment, Tron tells her "It's time to go"; however all dialog tracks for this short scene are lost), and the "light cycles" scene with its music (music that also shows up in the "here goes nothing" scene, and which Wendy Carlos would later use as the basis of one movement of her "Moonscapes" suite), on the auxiliary DVD. Also included on the auxiliary DVD is a new 90-minute "making of" feature, with cast and crew interviews, and an alternate version of the end credits, with Wendy's close music playing in its entirety, instead of cutting to Journey after the organ solo.
