Tron: Legacy – My Take (**Spoilers Alert**)

1 01 2011

After more than a decade, Tron: Legacy, a sequel to groundbreaking Tron is now released.

I just got a chance to watch Tron: Legacy although I can’t watch it in IMAX 3D because I have to take out my reading glasses (I’m shortsighted). But Tron: Legacy 2D is enough me. Tron: Legacy has a really nice visual and special effects to keep you glue to your seats. I think those who don’t know or haven’t watched the original Tron might not enjoy Tron: Legacy as much as those who have. For me, people who grew up in the 1980s will have a blast from watching Tron: Legacy.

It maybe just me but by 3rd act I was a little lost with the plot but it’s still an enjoyable film. But everytime I watched Jeff Bridges (as Kevin Flynn), I couldn’t help but think of him as The Dude more than Flynn himself. The whole movie, for me, has two themes – the relationship between father and son (Kevin and Sam Flynn) and the power struggle of Kevin and CLU. Speaking of CLU, the “de-aging” process that made CLU looked like Jeff Bridges in his 30s looked marvelous although at some shots it looked too obvious that it’s computer generated. Still, good effects though. Another nice touch for Tron: Legacy is the lovely Olivia Wilde – a sight for sore eyes after watching lots of neon-glowing black suits.

Aside from all that I have mentioned, Tron: Legacy is an enjoyable film albeit some plotholes. It has a groundbreaking visual aspect into it. And who isn’t pumped up or got goosebump when “Separate Ways” by Journey was played at the arcade? Flynn Lives!!





Quantum of Solace – Music Video for “Another Way to Die”

1 10 2008

Thank you to folks at Joblo.com that today we have the official music video for “Another Way to Die” performed by Alicia Keys and Jack White for the upcoming 007 Quantum of Solace. The music video itself is very sexy and sleek. But honestly speaking, I like music video of Chris Cornell’s “You Know My Name” better. What are you guys’ favorite 007 music videos? Mine is “The Living Daylight” by A-Ha (yes, I know the music video look very 1980s-centric but their music is so catchy) and the mentioned “You Know My Name” by Chris Cornell.

Quantum of Solace – Theme Song by Alicia Keys & Jack White

25 09 2008

Here you go, folks. The new theme for James Bond 007 Quantum of Solace called “Another Way to Die” performed by Alicia Keys feat. Jack White. I’d say it’s a bit different, perhaps in the tradition of Chris Cornell’s theme for Casino Royale. Anyhow, “Another Way to Die” is different in a good way and go more into non-traditional theme for James Bond movie. I like the melody though – that still retains some of James Bond elements.
