TRON, man... It's annoying to see how few people have actually watched it. Love that movie.

deep_fried_bum_cake2357d ago (Edited 2357d ago )

Yeah it's a fantastic movie. I think most people have seen tron contrary to your experience, and a lot of people would have seen it when tron legacy was coming out.

More people definitely need to see office space, that's a great movie, I've got the DVD next to my bed.

it amazes me how many people who work in office environments (cubical, etc) have never seen office space. The whole red swing line stapler goes right over their head.

on topic...there was rumor that a sequel to the last starfighter was being kicked around. If not a sequel then a remake would be nice. With today's cg it would look even better and possibly with 3d really make the viewer feel like they are piloting a gunstar.

I've seen both TRON movies and I think the new one is better than the old one.

But in all honesty TRON is far from movies that I even remotely like. I don't even know why I watched the first one...I must have been really bored back than. The new one I wanted to give a chance and wasn't much better.

Point is, TRON isn't a movie in my opinion that must be watched before you die.

If we are talking about video game movies than I can only mention two of them and say that they are good. One is Mortal Kombat (the first one only, the second is trash) and Silent Hill.

Those are the only two movies gamers have to watch.

Yeah, I've got to disagree with Tron. There was nothing good about that movie. The visuals may have been revolutionary for the time and from the viewpoint of historical cinema, it might be interesting from that perspective but the movie itself was god awful. I'm a movie guy now but I never saw this as a kid nor did I grow up watching many movies (I was 8 at the time this came out and the closest theatre to me was a 3 hour drive), but when I watched it prior to the release of the new Tron I almost couldn't finish it.

Even if you could look past the unbelievably one dimensional characters the movie was! The premise was good, the idea was sound and yet in execution it just became this tedious, unwatchable slog of a movie. And for some reason they never felt the reason to explain anything..ever. Maddening. When you have a plot this thin you just can't drag it out for as long as they did hear without boring your audience to tears. Did I really watch 15 minutes about them drinking energy water? It certainly felt like it.

Apparently they also developed some sort of time warp for this movie because they made 96 minutes feel like 4 long hours. I sat in a hospital for 7 1/2 hours yesterday with my wife (she's fine) and I think I would have preferred that to having to watch Tron again at just over 90 minutes. Although it is close. I'd have to think about it if given the option.

I liked the followup, I'm looking forward to the next movie and even the animated series, but I can't recommend Tron to anyone.

In conclusion: I did not care for the first Tron. It's painful.

I agree. Tron does not merit even a single viewing. I can't beleive that anyone who would write a list like this would put Tron at the top of the list....

Therefore, I don't think the blogger has actually viewed the movie Tron, and suspect he hasn't viewed several of the movies in the list.

I honestly thought both the new one and the old one were pretty bad. But thats just my opinion.

Menashe2357d ago

To those commenting on Office Space, I saw it and thought it was great.

I also liked both Tron movies. Is it weird that I like the second one even more than the first?

Coltrane_C2356d ago

No I love the second movie...I love Tron

Metropolis (1927)
Dir: Fritz Lang
Starring: Brigette Helm

shodan742357d ago

King Of Kong is hands-down one of the best documentaries I've ever seen.

RXL2357d ago (Edited 2357d ago )

Scott Pilgrim get's an honorable mention?..

that movie is littered with video game references while the matrix (how ever awesome) just plays like one

Zelda base line...

Mario power ups..

Video Game visuals..


and what about Hackers with Angelina Jolie? given it's about hacking the main character loves playing video games..

Fylus2357d ago (Edited 2357d ago )

Scott Pilgrim VS. The World is such an amazing movie. I love how well they implemented that graphic novel style to it with the narratives.

ElasticLove2357d ago (Edited 2357d ago )

Graveyard of the Fireflies, first movie to ever make me cry. Recommend it to anyone that likes a good anime film.

deep_fried_bum_cake2357d ago

It's just grave of the fireflies not graveyard. And while I agree that everyone should see it, it's not really relevant to gaming.

ElasticLove2357d ago (Edited 2357d ago )

Yeah I was wondering myself had this article got approve.
