Tron/Tron Legacy

A lot more than time separates these two Disney Sci-Fi films. Tron: Legacy (2010) may have a lot more cinematic bells and whistles to splash across the screen, but the heart of the movie is as cold as the technology. The original Tron (1982), on the other hand, is obviously a labor of love by director Steven  Lisberger and his crew who were boldly going where no other filmmakers had gone before when they decided to show the world what the inside of a computer would look like if you only had enough imagination. Be sure to watch the extras and see just how the original Tron effects were stitched together (literally) in the days before all a director had to do was punch a computer button.
