    This is one remake that doesn't bother me. I'm not a big fan of the original film but, a remake made with the right budget could be interesting. The only fond memories I have of the film released in 1979 are the robots and the theme. I didn't like any of the human characters.

    I'd rather Hollywood remake terrible crap like Black Hole than anything with an iota of artistic merit.

    I can't complain about this remake...1) We don't have nearly enough space movies. 2) Seeing Maxmillion with new special effects is too cool to pass up.

    I've never actually seen the original, but I do love going back and watching older Disney movies, would you guys recomend it?

    It's good, though it's unique in a way that I personally felt like the director and producers didn't know what the movie should cater to: adults or children. The movie is dark and slow (image Disney's very own version of 2001) but it has these cartoony robot characters (read: trying to cash-in the Star Wars crowd).

    The ending is so dark and disturbing, it makes for a great short art house film.

    I have been wanting a remake of this for a while. The old version is soo dated it needs to be revived.

    I think that the movie will be in development, but won't get greenlit until Joseph Kosinski and Sean Bailey show off their first cut of "Tron Legacy" to Disney execs. Otherwise, they're still an unproven duo. Not to say that they won't do a good job with Tron.

    Man i seriously hope this movie has some awesome visuals.
    I love it when science gets a proper visual representation in movies. That's one of the reasons why i love movies like 2001 and event horizon.

    Vincent better be in the remake, and he better look exactly as he was in the original. Like R2-D2 and C3-PO, he is a classic that shouldn't be messed with. Maximillian can be "slightly" altered to give him an even more menacing look.

    Ill be honest, when I was a kid this movie kinda creeped me out. At first I was really captured by the sci fi aspect, but as it continued on it took that horror type turn and scared the hell out of me. Especially the ending.

    Why not? The original was interesting, but kind of cheesy and silly in some respects, so it's hardly a classic.

    I remembered that it was a bit creppy when I watched movie for the first time, but I love it. So far from I've seen from Tron Legacy it looks good so I have faith in Kosinski for the reimagining.

    Cool. I want a totally amped up and uber-weaponized Maximillian.

    It's about time. I will be at least able to buy a V.I.N.cent figure.

    Here's a case where a remake can only improve on the original. Great effects, bad movie.
