On a whim, I borrowed Tron: Legacy from our local library — did you know that public libraries are awesome streaming services in their own right? — and found myself so much more underwhelmed than I wanted to be (again). Tron: Legacy takes itself too seriously to be fun and there are parts that are too goofy (like the protagonist’s parkour and BASE jumping) for it to be taken seriously.
Which is a shame, because there’s a lot that I love about the movie (e.g., its stylish visuals and world-building, Daft Punk’s soundtrack, the highbrow concepts that are bandied about, Olivia Wilde’s haircut), but it never gels together as much as I desperately want it to.
