    Interesting that Tron and Alice in Wonderland are both 3D.

    So, aside from Bridges in the building... is everything else computer animated?

    The bodies and faces - especially their motions - of the characters seemed exaggerated, which has always been my personal complaint with computer generated characters - "realistic" humans, anyway.

    If that is the case... that's unfortunate.

    but isn't that kinda the point ?
    they're programs ..... I'm not sure they're supposed to accurately mimic human movement

    No, no... I get it. I'm simply saying that the original Tron didn't do that and it looked pretty great - even by the standards of its age.

    All I'm saying it... they don't NEED to do it, they're just doing it anyway. My complaint is that computer generated humans move awkwardly and I'm completely taken out of the story because it moves into an "unreal" area.


    I don't mind the computer generated vehicles and cityscapes... but the close-ups of the people look awkward, exaggerated and bad - to me, anyway.

    i agree it does look unnatural, but many CGI scenes do.
    even though it looks it, there's no indication that this is a final rendition of the scene
    I think it looks fantastic as it is.

    If I was playing Tron as a video game, as cut-scenes these would be amazing!

    But, if I'm going to spend $12+ to watch it in a theater... it better improve before official release! :thumb:

    I saw the first Tron and it was visually stunning. I think their using CGI now because it's the new standard of some of todays movies.

    It's a bit of that hidden valley effect.
