Tron Legacy
Just saw it with my son and my ex (Thomas really wanted to see it with 'everyone'. He got his Mom and Dad and seemed happy with it). I really enjoyed it, for all I have a couple quibbles and there were a few places I thought it was a little obvious, but then I have been watching movies for .. how many years now? I am just not going to be easily led anymore.

But, a couple things occurred to me to question this time, that never even entered my head with the first Tron, and should have.

A) Why does gravity work? And, worse, why doesn't it work on everything?

B) The whole programs-as-citizens thing doesn't scan well for me.

Black helmet and name change does not fool me!

The Grid is based on a video game and, as such, must have rules. Rules can be broken or bent, but only by certain people, in certain ways. As animeangel points out, much like the life we know here.

I had some quibbles with the movie, too (I thought the original's plot was better, believe it or not), but ultimately it Did Not Suck, and that's all I was asking.

I still really really hate Quorra's hair, though. I think Flynn wanted to send her to this reality simply so she could find a good hairdresser who was capable of cutting her bangs straight.

cutting her bangs straight

I kept telling myself it was just a perspective thing. Surely they weren't going for the hacked-it-off-herself-without-a-mirror look.*

*please don't ask why I know what that looks like.
