Tron 3 Teaser



This isn't a teaser by any stretch - it's ten minutes long - but if you want to know where the Tron franchise is going, or fill the blanks between Tron and Tron Legacy, here you go.

Don't have time to watch this before work, but I have to protest the creation of this film. We're obviously heading for cash-in territory.

So there is going to be a Tron 3? Guess they didn't learn their lesson with Tron Legacy...

I'm not so sure about a cash-in, I didn't hate "Legacy," but if Disney doesn't lighten things up on this third go 'round the franchise may have lost a fan.

I still haven't seen Legacy, but nothing about that really interests me. Basically it looks like another "Speed Racer" to me. Meaning, it's good for visuals in a cool fantasy world and that's about it. The first Tron sucked. I'm not at all inclined to watch a third Tron (especially until I've seen Legacy).

Another Tron movie already. I still haven't seen the second one!

I'm getting the general sense that there isn't an interest in another title right now. I honestly assumed that Disney would hold off a decade or two before pushing another one out - the idea being that enough time would pass for the visuals to really progress in the way that they did between the original and "Legacy."

Review: Anomalisa

Weird is rarely used as a good quality in film criticism, but few words so completely describe Charlie Kaufman’s work as weird does. All of his films are a window into his very particular worldview, and that p.o.v. is certainly unlike anything seen in pop culture. For that reason, Anomalisa became an entry on many most anticipated lists for 2015. That Kaufman chose stop-motion to tell this story made the picture an event. So it came as a disappointment when the film was one of the year’s more mundane efforts.

Being John Malkovich and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind have an energy and heart at the center that is not present here. Previous collaborators like Spike Jonze and Michel Gondry were able to temper the overwhelming negativity Charlie Kaufman occasionally falls prey to, but, this time, the writer doesn’t have a director to rein things in. In all of his efforts to create an experience that is both familiar and alienating, Kaufman may have accidentally created something host…

Review: The Salvation

Westerns have never recovered from the oversaturation that killed off viewer interest decades ago, but every now and then a gem pops up. Recent successes like The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, 2007’s 3:10 to Yuma and the Coen brothers adaptation of True Grit all did well because they tweaked the genre slightly, but director Kristian Levring goes with an old school approach. A faithful recreation of those revenge Westerns made so popular in the 1970s, The Salvation envelopes many elements of previous Clint Eastwood classics and wraps it into a tidy package.

The Salvation starts in on the central dilemma, joining Jon (Hannibal‘s Mad Mikkelsen) at the train station where he awaits the arrival of his wife and son. Jon and his brother, Peter (Mikael Persbrandt), have lived in the United States long enough to build a hospitable life for their family back in Denmark. This homecoming should be a sweet moment to establish the family important to Jon, but fate plays out…

Review: Selma

It may surprise many that Martin Luther King Jr. never received the celluloid treatment prior to Selma. Sure he had been mentioned in other historical pieces, but short of documentary footage, King was never given center stage. Quite shocking given the man's legacy and the lingering effect of his efforts still felt today. Several years of production and a director change later, Selma arrives as the film worthy of the man.
