Maybe they could get thet kid with the glasses and headband thats in the arcade?????



Maybe all I want is a remake??



That kid always stands out to me when I watch the film. I ask myself if he EVER passed as a normal looking arcade goer. Can't remember if I thought he looked funny when I was a kid... hell - he's probably my age now, give or take.

As for the Journey song - there will be a character named "Sherri" in TR2N. She is a systems security annalist for Encom in the new film. The song "Oh Sherri" by Steve Perry will be playing during the end credits in honor of her character... and what a weird Journey that would be!

Hold on - I was just joking.

45?

Naa - he'd be like my age or so. I'm not even 40 yet.

I wonder if he admits to even being in TRON these days - looking like he did.



Whoa - what's this?



New digicon!

Nice work, Sketch!

I'm suprised no one has brought this up...
I don't think there should be any songs in TRON not made by a synthesizer Definetly nothing with lyrics. For some reason, when a movie uses a song with lyrics in it, it "detracts" from the movie's "goodness" (that's how I'm gonna describe it ) and really gets on my nerves.
There is a very good chance the Danny Elfman will be doing most of the soundtrack. He's the big hot-shot in Hollywood, and he does music for almost every recent movie. Of course, the only time I really noticed was in Tim Burton/Johnny Depp films so maybe not... hmmm. Anyways, everyone wants him to do music for their movie so I'm thinking he will do at least some of the soundtrack.

I *love* Danny Elfmans film scores, but again I think his style of music compositions really does *not* fit TR2N in *any way* *face palm*.

Heck the music of group "The Knife" (without any singing parts) would fit for like BGM faded in the background (for some real world scenes, and End Credits)

IMNSHO cheesy, sentimental, retro 70's and overly
cheer-y 80's pop music or Hair metal just won't fit "TR2N." (-__-);

The Produceers of TR2N either need to get Wendy Carlos to score it, or someone that can pull-off her style of Electronica or compose similar style Electronica-synth music really well.. like whomever scored Tron 2.0.

Funny, because the music to Tron 2.0 was trashed in all the reviews I read, even though I thought it was quite good, But I think its a mistake falling into that trap of using stuff from the old movie (like Wendy Carlos). Her music is great and all that, but this is over a quarter of a century later, and music has evolved quite a bit.

I still reckon a modern Industrial artist(s) are ideal to capture the dark futuristic sound with their combination of Harsh electronics and mechanical sounds to give the movie a true sense of modernism and to show how technology has moved on.

What I'm expecting is that there is no music to this movie except a score. Either way, Ill probably be happy

"Professional Critics" weither it be of movies, tv, or videogames, or PC games are usually very narrow-minded biased jerks that don't like anything beyond their little box of perspectives, aesthetic and ephemeral likes. I take what they say/write with a tiny grain of salt...

Industrial is a mixed bag, some of it is good, alot of it is bad IMO.
In general Industrial is a bit too repeative and the beats too harsh, clashing, thumping, I really don't see that fitting TR2N.
Post apocholyptic Steam-Punk or "real-world" dirty-gritty cyber punk type stuff yes, but TR2N?
I just don't see it "fitting".

Ambient Progressive Electronica ( not out right Techno) something like the music by "Dweller at the Threshold", 'Cosmosis", or by "Radio Massacre International"would fit nicely as BGM.
I DO think Wendy Carlos could pull it off again.

As for End Credits, IMO an appropriate song from any of these: TOOL, NIN, Radio Head, Depeche Mode, or maybe Moby.

Those comparisons aren't remotely relevant to what is being discussed. If 300 was a sequel to some movie called "200" and 200 had established a look, sound & feel that was well recognized as "being" 200, then 300 should probably follow that foundation somewhat. If ABBA was played in 200, then it might be okay to play ABBA in 300. A more appropriate analogy, but one that doesn't help your case, would be, "What if Star Wars IV played classical symphonic scores throughout and never played any contemporary music, but then Star Wars V played tracks from John Denver and Journey?" Playing ABBA for 300 doesn't make any logical sense. Playing John Denver/Journey in SW:V doesn't make any sense. However, since TR1N played Wendy Carlos and Journey, it'd make perfect sense to hear some of that in TR2N. Just because a 3 minute TR2N clip is dark, it doesn't mean every minute of the movie will be. And keep in mind, Journey was played in the real world in TR1N, not the computer world. There could very well be a Flynn's arcade scene in TR2N... Journey could very easily play in the background, no?

As a fan of the old Miami Vice TV series, it's synth music (Jan Hammer, etc.) and of the Phil Collins song "In the Air Tonight," it really bugged me that the Miami Vice movie that came out a few years ago didn't really give me an old 80s vibe; and the ultimate 'ugh' was hearing "In the Air Tonight" ruined (imo) by some rockerized version of it. There wasn't really any need to re-do that song, imo. I still really liked the movie... but I wish the soundtrack gave more homage to the TV series. It's all opinions though, and everyone has one.

Catering to "Broad audience appeal" almost always tarnishes a creative, magical endeavor, by what I've seen. Games, movies, etc. Obviously, studios would want that, but the fact that TRON didn't have broad audience appeal back in 1982 may be partially why we like it. We all loved its many elements of uniqueness for whatever reason, while the general audience didn't understand it or didn't care to understand it. To bring mass appeal may mean dumbing the movie down or adding cheesy cliche things that makes the movie cater to today's crowd. It is possible to bring mass appeal to TR2N and yet still keep us all greatly satisfied, but I do cringe and worry any time I hear "It's about broad audience appeal." When something already has broad audience appeal it's easy not to screw it up by catering to 'broad audience appeal' in the next go-round. But when talking about something very unique, with a small group of appreciaters, that unique thing can be ruined by appealing to the broad audience. It happened with one of my favorite video games. I've seen it happen to movies, etc.

The broad, general audience doesn't like Wendy Carlos' music, I'm sure. It's too unique and odd for most. I enjoy it. It was in TR1N, so I'd be happy to hear some in TR2N. I'm open to new flavors (I enjoyed Tron 2.0 soundtrack and the TR2N ambient track), but I'd hate to blanketly say "No Journey/No Wendy." Wouldn't make sense to me.

So songs like "Jump", "1984", Journey songs, etc while cool songs and "popular" among *some* people,
IMO just would seem "out of place" thematically, and would probable not fit the "vibe" of TR2N in my view.
I hope the whole dark vibe of TR2N is what we saw in the 3-minute clip, but I think you are narrowing your scope of the movie too much. There will probably be a real world in TR2N. I should hope so anyways. Journey only played in TRON in Flynn's arcade and the closing credits, that I can remember. It wasn't like Journey was playing during the light cycle sequence. I understand what you mean, but i think you might have some unnecessary fears about all this. Would it really be that bad to have muted Journey music playing in the background of an arcade while Flynn and Alan talked in TR2N?



End of line.


I'm getting out of here right now, and you guys are invited. -----^

Yeah dude, but that thread only has two other posts in it than your own! Hardly democratic.

I think TR2N should have the theme to the Teletubbies playing in the background in the real world, and Neo bending "no spoons" and kicking MCP ass in the digital one.

Now that would be awesome!
