"What did I just watch?!"

That's what I asked myself the other night when I turned off my DVD player.

With Disney's "TRON Legacy" coming out at the end of the year, I figured I'd watch the 1982 original movie so I'd know what to expect when I see the new flick in December. (I'd vaguely remembered seeing the original "TRON" when I was a little kid, but didn't remember anything about the movie other than that they played with a light-up Frisbee® — as I recalled them — and rode on those awesome Light Cycles.) After watching the movie again earlier this week, I don't understand much more than that!

For a movie that came out just five years after George Lucas changed the way sci-fi movies are made with "Star Wars," it was amazing to see the computer graphics used in "Tron." That said, they kind of overshadowed the story, which I'm pretty sure I still don't comprehend.

Still, considering the technological advances in the 28 years since the original "TRON," I'm dying to see how the sequel turns out ... at least I think I am.
