Tron: Legacy - anyone? anyone?

Bueller? Bueller?

I have not seen the movie, but I do own the Daft Punk soundtrack (which is surprisingly and ridiculously entertaining). I also heard that the music was the best part of the movie.

The soundtrack is wonderful, and cues well with the visuals. The script isn't perfect, but the visuals and score are perfect. It's worth seeing in 3D (as it was shot with the same Pace/Cameron Fusion camera).

It's just fun, escapist sci-fi fare. Gorgeous visuals and an awesomely clichéd sci-fi plot - I wouldn't have it any other way.

I haven't seen it yet, really want to but doubt its still playing in this stinky ass town.. Is it true that only a portion of the film is in 3D?

No. The entire film was shot (and shown) in 3D.

Bingo. You'd think by the critical reaction to Tron: Legacy that the original Tron was a work of staggering cinematic genius. Uh, no. It was a thin (albeit archetypal) story with not very engaging characters existing in a world that's really weird and beautiful and action-packed. Ditto Tron: Legacy. It was a solid afternoon of fun for me and my kid.

Actually there are some scenes (at the beginning and end of the film, specifically) which are shown in 2D. These are the scenes taking place in the "real world." However, everything taking place in the digital world is shown in 3D. Even so, the audience is asked to keep their glasses on the entire time.
