Tron: Legacy? Don’t sugarcoat it Premiere; beyond your half-star rating, tell us how you really feel about the new sequel:
Tron: Legacy will only be enjoyed by men in their thirties and early forties searching for a Proustian moment.

Movie fans will likewise loathe this movie, because it wasn’t made for them either.
Will my Proustian moment be a sudden Proustian rush? I figured the sequel stunk as badly as the original Tron; could it be literally odoriferous as well?
Incidentally, not that I thought it was very good when I saw it in the theater during its first run, but good luck trying to find the original Tron on DVD, Christian Toto writes, in what seems very much like a mixed blessing.
