Tag: Tron Legacy
Disney Animation is not in the best of places right now. Although Tangled did pretty good, it wasn't the huge success it should have been. Tron: Legacy might have made its money back, but nothing more. And Mars Needs Moms? Let's not talk about that one. So who will Disney call on to rejuvenate their studio? Well, the big man himself; none other than Mickey Mouse.
Chances are you've already caught this video, if you're still into anything TRON related. It started making it's rounds at the end of last week and on into the weekend. So why didn't we post it then? I had refused to watch it until now. However, if you haven't had a chance to check out this video (which is supposed to be attached to the upcoming blu-ray release of TRON: Legacy) then you're in for a surprising treat.
An update to the Amazon website appears to have given fans awaiting the TRON: Legacy blu-ray release a look at the box art and the various editions that will be coming out for the movie. In short, they plan on saturating your store's shelves with TRON whenever it decides to release.
Tis the season to give people tiny gold statues. Whether you have realized it or not, Oscar season is upon us all. It's one of the biggest events in the movie industry because, regardless of the worth that these trophies have on swaying the average moviegoer to watch a film, it certainly does wonders to ones resume. So stand up and prepare your acceptance speech; we're going on a journey. We will explore the best and brightest that this year had to offer, from Oscar bait to crowdpleasing blockbusters, we got em' all. And, if we're lucky, we may just be able pluck up the noble few who will be lucky enough to grace the historic Kodak Theater. From Best Picture to Best SFX, we're running down who we think may find themselves with Oscar gold come February 27. Without furthur ado, here's TMP's predictions of the 83rd Annual Academy Award nominees and winners!

Some of you may not know that I'm a very big gamer. I love games and in particular I'm a retro gamer. I collect the old 8 and 16-bit systems (NES, SNES, Sega Genesis, etc) and there's something about them that I love. So when I see a video that emulates that old-school style I tend to get a bit giddy, especially when it deals with movies.
On the whole, I think the year of 2010 was fairly positive for film. We saw plenty of great movies that made us visit the entire spectrum of emotions, and tell a powerful story (Black Swan, Inception, Scott Pilgrim, etc.) but unfortunately there were quite a few stinkers this year. The saddest part about some of those movies, however, is that they were supposed to be great! Some of the most hyped movies, failed. While not all of them were terrible they failed to deliver on the expected level of excellence.
So instead of a standard best/worst of 2010 list, I've decided to compile a list of the movies this year that should have been awesome...but weren't.
Like many people this past weekend, I went to see TRON: Legacy. I went into the movie theater with child-like excitement, but left ultimately disappointed. I didn't hate it, but I wanted so much more. I felt the story was actually okay, but big holes and unanswered questions kept it from being the epic it could have been. That being said, I've thought hard about the 5 questions Legacy really should have answered.
Tron: Legacy rebooted the Hollywood box office, providing a jump start to the Christmas movie season after several down weeks. The other big opening, Yogi Bear, didn't fare as well but still finished second for a nice picnic basket of a weekend.
An homage to a decade. That’s the mantra that kept running through my mind while I watched Joseph Kosinski’s directorial debut, TRON: Legacy. The film cannot be divorced from its incredibly ‘80s-drenched source material: a fact that leads to TRON: Legacy's greatest achievements and most disappointing failures.
