    I really wasn't expecting too much from the audio side of this 1982 movie. Sounds like the video is great and it has lots of good bonus material. I'll be picking it up. [​IMG]

    I didn't think the audio was too bad on the initial release. Now in 5.1, the audio is even better, according to the review. I was never a huge Tron fan, but this is something I may pick up. I'm already buying American Pie 2, Tombstone, and Sixth Sense on the 15th - it's going to be a big spending day. [​IMG]

    I love this movie. I can't tell you how many times I watched this film as a kid, of course thats not to say that I'm all grown up now [​IMG]. I was talking with some co-workers yesterday about upcoming DVDs and I was actually surprised at how many people did not know about TRON. To give you some background I'm a software developer and I work with people roughly my same age. To my surprise none of them had ever seen the movie. Is this common? I thought this film had a huge following.

    I just want to know if the REAL, FINAL trailer is on this DVD. I have a 35mm print of it and I really hate having to thread it up to watch it. The laserdisc had something like 7 or 8 trailers on it, but not the FINAL one. Annoying.

    I've just watched this disc and was really impressed with the audio. There is some extremely deep bass and lovely use of the rears, while the dialogue doesn't have the thin nasal quality that often comes with older remastered material.

    I haven't been through the bonus material yet, but the feature is presented very nicely...

    WOOHOO!! I forgot this was almost due.

    My etailer of choice has this in stock and I've just placed my order, so hopefully I'll have a Tron-fest this weekend.

    Nice.

    Wow, somebody else had Intellivision!! [​IMG]
    It always seemed to me like the VHS vs Beta debate: Atari was the more popular platform, which flourished commercially, but Intellivision had better graphics and more complex gameplay.

    A little off topic, but if you liked Intellivision and want to know the stories behind the games then check out:

    It seemes that Matel bet alot of money that Tron would be a blockbuster. Cost them alot of money.

    "Wow, somebody else had Intellivision!!"

    We had it too. Man, the sports were great! Then after Intellivision, we got Colecovision (sp.?).
