I've tried to watch Tron a few times and I've never succeeded. It's an overrated movie.

I watched Tron a few months ago when I was sick.

It was very different to what I thought it was going to be. I’m not sure if I hated it or loved it.

Just highlighting these for Mike. :P

Daft Punk scores "Tron" soundtrack

By David J. Prince David J. Prince

NEW YORK (Billboard) – Daft Punk, the French electronica duo known for their robot personas, will compose the score for "TR2N," Walt Disney Pictures' update of its 1982 science fiction classic "Tron."

The film, currently in production, is tentatively scheduled for a 2011 release.

The "TR2N" score marks Daft Punk's first foray into the studio since 2005's "Human After All." After an extended hiatus, the duo reemerged in 2007 for an extensive world tour, spawning the Grammy-wining live set "Alive 2007." The group's 2001 track "Harder Better Faster Stronger" was adapted by Kanye West for his single "Stronger," and the pair appeared at the 2008 Grammy Awards with the rapper.

The musicians, Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, split their time between Paris and Los Angeles, where they have assembled a new recording studio for the TR2N project.

Daft Punk have worked in film before, most notably as directors of their feature "Electroma," although that film used none of the group's own music.

The original "Tron," which pioneered the use of computer graphics, was scored by Wendy Carlos, an electronic musician and composer whose "Switched on Bach" album was one of the first to highlight the Moog synthesizer as a musical instrument.

Awesome!

That name change sucks.

Not really; if you look around certain sites you can find a synopsis of the film. It makes a lot of sense with the new storyline they have.

I think TRON is one of those films where you either get it and love it or you don't. I get it and love it. People keep complaining about how the visual effects haven't held up over time, but I honestly think that it only adds to the film, since computers really were that low-tech in the 80s. Hopefully this new film's "modern" world-of-Tron will satisfy all.

I'm anticipating this new film more than anything else right now.

I think Tron does pretty well considering when it was made. Dated effects don't phase me so much as the really poor understanding of what computers actually do. Still, it's a great film.

....but I still think that new name sucks.
