Anyone been to see it yet? I don't remember the original being that good and this trailer looks underwhelming.

To get that first question out of the way: I haven't.

I remember the original (not that I was alive to see it during the original run, but lazy TV scheduling always compensates) being a bit like Blade Runner, in that it was a very slow-paced, gradual-development kind of film. That said, watching Blade Runner a second time and properly focusing on it justified giving it another go. Watching Tron again didn't; the special effects are good for 1982, and the light-cycles and other imagery were striking, but the actual plot itself is pretty sterile.

Naturally, my fear about Tron: Legacy is that it'll prove to be this year's Avatar, i.e. twenty-seven years, eleven months, thirty days, twenty-three hours and fifty-five minutes spent on the CGI and the rest on the script.
