Lafe's Favorite Movies
Probably my favorite film of all time. It has great art direction, video game action, Robin Williams comedy and an awesome soundtrack. Favorite Scenes: the surrealist fake MTV video to distract the guards, and when the toy tanks break down the door and begin the battle against the good toys - with "Welcome to the Pleasuredome" re-mixed version playing.
TRON - I love thee!
The greatest videogame movie ever, and probably the best movie from the 1980's. Disney did something weird and made a thoughtful film. I liked how the citizens of the computer world had real world counterparts. There was a pseudo-religion in the TRON world to believe in the greater forces beyond. There were probably many in-jokes to the smaller sector of computer programmers back then; so I'd say this movie was ahead of its time. The layered optical effects to make the models and actors circuitry glow, was unique. I wish I saw it on the big screen to fully appreciate its production design. This fueled a wave of great arcade and home videogame products which enhanced the 80's generation. The powerful and beautiful electronic score by Wendy Carlos made the movie into a lifting experience. The 20th Annivesary DVD (not pictured) is a wonderful way to re-live this film.
Favorite Scene: When the MCP explodes and all the I/O towers light up
