I Didn't Understand Tron

I know there are millions of geeks and science fiction fans that are going to mentally kick me in the ass right now. My web is going to go into a crazy frenzy once I make this confession.

Months ago, I finally sat down on the couch and watched the cult classic science fiction film Tron. I have become a huge fan of Jeff Bridges during the last couple of years. When I found out that played the lead role in the film I considered it a perfect opportunity to see it. This film kept calling me for years. Growing up, I would see at least one commercial a year about this movie. It was like this movie was having a rerelease every year.

Now there I was, months before my 20th birthday, and I finally got the chance to see this film. I sat there on the couch with popcorn and cherry Coke. I was so excited to finally see this cult classic. Then by the end of the film, I had this large frown on my face.

The story was amazing. Jeff Bridges and the rest of the cast did an amazing job with their acting. However, the entire film looked like it dragged on for a long time. I couldn't understand what they were saying. The dialogue was completely confusing. I want to call to the screenwriter and ask them what they were thinking when they wrote the dialogue. I guess I'm not that much of a science fiction fan if I didn't know what they meant. 

Don't kill me everyone. I am still a fan of science fiction. This is just one those movies I didn't understand. My apologies.
