Downtown LA Timelapse

I loved Tron the movie, especially that the sound track was put together by Daft Punk, they couldn’t have found a better team to make the music for it. Tron revolves around lights, specific types of lights, and the way this timelapse is made looks like the lines drawn by Tron, a perfect fit.

Tron: Legacy Mural

End of the Line presents a look at the creation of a 20m-long aerosol Tron: Legacy mural for an art installation in East London. I have a lot respect for Graffiti Artists, some of thing they create are mind bongoling, and now they created the Tron: Legacy Mural with the movie soundtrack playing in the background. Say what you will about the film (I loved it), there’s no denying that it had some style. And that all comes to life with this mural.

TRON Legacy Light Cycle

The first thing that they worked on when developing this movie is the Light Cycle, they made a point to modernize it and develop for this movie and I think its a beautiful piece of design and machinary. Its probably one of the cool things during the first part of the movie, and now its availble to sit on your shelf. Its 25 centimeters long and looks amazing, the riders looks like a piece of the bike, a very nice piece to have for $270.

Review: Tron Legacy

The son of a virtual world designer goes looking for his father and ends up inside the digital world that his father designed. He meets his father’s creation turned bad and a unique ally who was born inside the digital domain of The Grid.

Sam Flynn is the young man with a huge company to inherit which he wants nothing to do with, except to badger them and embarrass them whenever possible. Only to find a contact from his father’s old office, but his father has been missing for over a decade. The story picks up some time after Jeff Bridges disappears into The Grid and being stuck there for a very long time, and his son stumbles into his digital world. This is one hell of a science fiction movie that I loved from beginning to end, I kept wanting more and the story was great, and the graphics of their world and how everything was related together through the lighting patterns. Jeff Bridges does an amazing job in this movie, and brought back memories when I remember see it on VHS in the 80s for the first time. If you are scifi fan then this movie is a must.

Awesome Tron Posters

The latest Tron: Legacy poster is my favorite one yet. Its not that the poster is awesome in its own right but also because it gives a nod to the classic 1982 Tron poster that started it all. I can’t wait to see this movie coming out in December, I haven’t seen any of the trailers or details about it so I wouldn’t know what to expect, I just know its going to be amazing.

Marvel Superheroes in the World of Tron

Now you can see some interaction between Marvel and Disney since being bought out by Disney. Since there is a huge amount of hype and work that has gone into Tron: Legacy. Now Marvel are releasing alternate Tron covers to some of their major characters which is insanely cool. I wish they had this available as panels that you can mount to your wall, the Tron Marvel covers are amazing.

Tron Legacy – HD Trailer

I remembered watching this movie when I was kid and I didn’t understand it at all, I had to watch it again when I in the late 80s to understand how great a movie it was. At the time those computer graphics were insane but this time around I’m not sure what they have planned, I’m just looking forward to watching the sequel of this movie and I’m wondering whats the story line going to be like since it has to take a different angle, now we just have to wait to 2010 to watch it.
