After watching Tron, let's try to get the high score on Ms. Pac-Man!

Waaaay back in ancient history, 1982 to be precise, before everyone had an iPhone or a gaming system, yes, even before facebook, there was a movie made named Tron.  Oh, you’ve heard of it?  It was a great science fiction movie based on the premise that there was some kind of an almost human power struggle inside your computer.

Beyond the killer storyline, it was a real game changer in the use of computer graphics.  They were definitely onto something with this one.  The visual stylings of director Steven Lisberger were cutting edge, dark, contrasty, and supercool. Here’s a little blast from the past for you.

I’m sure you’ve heard, but in case you haven’t, 2010 will bring us a new Tron. And from the looks of the trailer, this one is going to be pretty dang sleek. I for one am psyched to see how this classic is reworked.

I’ve got my 3D glasses on and I’m ready to go!
