Old school

by Netguy on 3/30/2012

I remember watching this when I was a kid thinking that is awesome. Now I watch it and it shows me how much technology has changed since then. What we found futuristic and awesome has changed quite a bit and the new version has all of that. Great movie to compare. Read More

Editors Note
Note A video game designer trying to prove a big time executive stole his idea is sucked into a corporation's mainframe where programs are personified counterparts of their writers and "users" are subjects of religious faith. A well-crafted and scripted metaphor, TRON benefits from breakthrough computer animation.
Plot Summary
Summary The MCP, a master computer program, is appropriating all other programs in order to become the controlling program in the world. To regain access to the computer for users, hacker Kevin Flynn sneaks into the system, but gets himself digitized. Stuck inside the system, he pretends to be a program and manages to help another program, Tron, free the machine from the tyrannical control of the MCP.
