I'm on the Grid.

Dear Tron Legacy, 


I had some serious reservations about attending you. Somehow, you just didn't look like my-kind-of-movie. However, my husband was giddy about your techno-nostalgic-wonder; so, I humored him by going. While your story had some holes, some of your lines were cringe worthy, and your characters' lack of urgency when faced with the destruction of the natural world left me feeling rather perplexed. You weren't quite as silly as I expected, your computer-animated Jeff Bridges was uncannily realistic, and, well, there's a chance that I've been pretending to ride a light-stick motorcycle…everywhere I go. Seriously, give me one of those.

my sister and I keep cracking up about kevin flynn's line near the end, "TRON what have you become...?"and "radical man!" haha oh and I pretend I am riding one of those too and that everywhere I go I have those light streams coming out behind me and anyone who crosses me the wrong way gets obliterated.

AH! I saw this yesterday with my fiance and LOVED IT! I didn't think I'd like it as much as I did but I love the light stick and everything it can do and the clone of the dad was really realistic!

Seriously, there were some ridiculous lines. "Am I to create the perfect system!?" dude...chill out.

But Sam Flynn on that Ducati? Oh yes.

After the movie I kept thinking there were streams of light behind my car.
