I watched Tron recently for the first time in years, and a couple of things struck me,
a) Jeff Bridges can make any part convincing
b) it’s look is still fresh.
c) oh man it’s an awful film
In fact I would go do far as to say it better looking now due to its style, that was dictated by the technology available, and the fact that its look had as much (if not more) to do with the artists involved more than the computers. So much of Tron is hand painted, or makes use of quite possibly the most complex analogue compositing system i have ever seen.
I just stumbled upon the maing of Tron on youtube and its essential viewing.
