Tron: Legacy Movie Review (***)

This is a hard movie to review for me. I am seriously conflicted on my feelings here. On one hand it is a shallow rehash of the original with poor acting, lazy 3D, and a overwhelming lack of heart. On the other hand it is a big budget sequel to Tron!

If I had to list the first movies that come to mind that were formational to me as a youth, it would be made up of a very short list (off the top of my head, quickly: Seven Blows of the Dragon, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, The Sting, M*A*S*H, Excalibur, and Tron – and really, if you know me personally at all, that should explain a lot).
