I think the Daft Punk score MADE the film, I think it would be a mistake to go a different direction musically for the next movie. I was disappointed that they did not allow Daft Punk to cover / reinterpret the original Tron score rather than release "Reconfigured" which was various artists attacking the T:L soundtrack. For some reason, and IMO a big mistake by Disney, was to distance T:L from the original Tron when marketing the new film.
It was true to the electronica genre, though, where remixes are a way of life. Let's face it: in reality it was no more than yet another way to make money (YAWMM?
). But it did make sense. Might've be interesting to work the original score in, in some way, but perhaps they had their reasons for not doing it.
|1982program Wrote:The server that Flynn uses in the basement is different than the server used in the original Tron....am I correct? If so, wouldn't it make sense that different servers / computers / devices would have a different look internally? I think it is a cool concept that it is possible for an Apple device to appear differently than a PC...or different servers to have programs w/ unique appearances. I hope they explore this in a future movie or series, would keep things fresh.|
I think it absolutely makes sense they'd look different, though I would think any machine of similar OS and era would look similar with just small changes.
But I think a lot of people felt much was lost. T82
depicted a working computer system where the programs had functions and the circuitry patterns looked like, well, circuitry. T:L
depicted a world where programs go to clubs and it rains. As I and others have pointed out, there wasn't much there to suggest "computer world" besides the fact that we were told it was, and much of the wonder and novelty of the idea was lost. (And I believe someone had argued above that today's generation wasn't interested in such a storyline. In THE age of technology, not to be interested in imagining that inside your every Android phone/iPad/graphing calculator/netbook is an entire digital world? Heaven forbid folks should have so little imagination.)
They pulled it off because they passed it off as Flynn's little virtual playground; you wouldn't expect it to function the same as an actual working computer like whatever you and I are tapping away on right now. But something was still lost.
Now, the change in circuitry design is arguable; the original T82
design is cute and great, but logically: why does a program have circuitry at all as if it's hardware? So I could understand an argument for the new design from that standpoint: the fact that programs glow at all in unique patterns is nifty to me. But it DOES deviate away from what they established in the original.
Really the biggest thing I have a problem with is the continued deviation away from original disc function. But it looks like that's here to stay and most people accept it, so oh well.
I would love to get back to a storyline where programs have functions and where we imagine what different computer processes might look like from the inside.
