Welcome back to Disney In Depth for the “top five” of a special two-part edition that explores the movies that deserve theme park attractions. Just in case you missed the previous edition, you can check it out here.

As I have discussed on Disney In Depth recently, the purchase of three key film properties – Pixar, Marvel and Lucasfilm – that have further realized Disney’s influence in the entertainment industry. Even the 2004 acquisition of The Muppets has forever changed the outlook for Jim Henson’s most adored faces. All of these characters unite the geek community, even those who enjoy Disney. In this edition, I will share some popular YouTube videos that spoof Marvel Studios, Pixar, Muppet, Star Wars and “regular” Disney films by featuring some famous personalities from the whole Disney universe.

Disney In Depth: Tron: Uprising Review

Disney In Depth banner

Tron: Uprising, an arrestingly-captivating new animated original series on the Disney XD channel, brings viewers back into the grid with the dynamic visuals, electrifying music and gripping storytelling that rekindled audiences with digital dazzle in Tron: Legacy.

Set between the original Tron and Tron: Legacy, Tron: Uprising focuses on mechanic-turned-renegade Beck (voiced by Elijah Wood), a deft programmer living in the stunning Argon City. Beck’s free-thinking society is soon threatened by the menacing General Tesler (Lance Henriksen), one of the evil CLU’s cohorts, who aims to take charge of the metropolis. Once his friend is “derezzed,” or the Tron version of someone being killed, Beck avenges his death by disguising himself as believed-to-be-dead hero Tron and inspiring a revolution. In the intense prologue special, “Beck’s Beginning,” we see this as almost an origins story, provided with heavy exposition to better understand the characters and storyline.

Netflix Review: TRON LegacyTRON Legacy
Netflix Streaming
DVD | Blu-Ray
Directed by Joseph Kosinski
Starring Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde, Beau Garrett, Michael Sheen, James Frain, Bruce Boxleitner, Daft Punk, Cillian Murphy
Walt Disney Pictures
Originally Released: December 17, 2010

TRON Legacy is a film that, for many of us, was a generation in waiting. Many of us who were children of the Eighties were floored with the richness and uniqueness of the original TRON film, sadly now quite dated (visually, though the story still stands up), as it was a statement of the budding tech generation we were becoming a part of. For decades, we waited for the potential of a sequel, and some of us lost all hope.

Then in 2008, something exciting happened at San Diego Comic-Con. Disney previewed new “test” footage in a trailer that was somewhat of a “proof-of-concept”. Then called TR2N, the sequel news set the internet on fire – as countless fans of the original movie enjoyed the fever of the news that another chapter was coming out. I’m sure even Tron Guy was amused.

$5 MP3 Album Deal: ‘Tron: Legacy – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack’

BAADASSSSS!   |

Tron Legacy soundtrack

For a huge selection of high quality MP3 albums at low prices there’s no better place to shop online than at Amazon. Every month the website hosts a wide variety of downloadable discs for $5 at their MP3 Store where each month they have 100 titles available, each of which will only set you back a single digital Abe Lincoln. Since individual MP3’s tend to sell for 99 cents at least you’re saving yourself a few bucks as well. Among the sweet deals Amazon is offering in November you’ll find titles from artists such as Lauren Hill, Bob Dylan, the Black Keys, George Thorogood and the Destroyers, John Coltrane, Kings of Leon, and Norah Jones.

There’s not a single dud in this bunch, but there’s one particular selection that has caught my attention so I’ve decided to write about it in greater detail: Tron: Legacy – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack.

Comic Review: Tron: Betrayal

Tron: BetrayalTron: Betrayal
Paperback
Writer: Jai Nitz
Pencils: Andie Tong and Jeff Matsuda
Inks: Pete Pantazis
Marvel Comics
Release Date: November 16, 2010

In the nearly thirty years between the events of Tron and Tron: Legacy, a lot has happened in Kevin Flynn’s life. Legacy gives the viewer all the basic information needed to understand and enjoy the events that take place, but for those who want the whole story, Tron: Betrayal gives you that and much more.

Kevin Flynn is a man torn between two worlds. In the real world he is the head of ENCOM, a Fortune 500 corporation, and a father-to-be. He is also the creator of a digital world that has undergone some drastic change in its short existence. The program TRON helps to keep order and security in the grid while Flynn is gone, but the expanding world needs more than just order. The amount of attention needed in both worlds has run Flynn down, so he creates CLU, a program in his own image to run the grid in his stead. CLU is charged by Flynn with creating “the perfect system” and he takes this task very seriously, going to extreme lengths to ensure its success. As a divide begins between CLU and Flynn’s definition of perfection, Flynn’s real-world responsibilities keep him away from the grid for longer periods of time than usual. The division between the grid’s creator and its supervisor is reaching a boiling point, all while Flynn is trying to raise his newborn son and still maintain an active role at ENCOM.

Tron Legacy blu-rayTron: Legacy/Tron: The Original Classic

Released date: April 5, 2011

If you want to see my opinion of Tron: Legacy, go ahead and check out my original review of the film’s theatrical release. My opinion of the movie hasn’t really changed since I originally wrote the review. To sum up, it is a fun and visually amazing movie, but it is not as good as it could have been. However, now I’m here to talk about the Blu-ray version of Tron: Legacy, in all its five discs of glory, and I can’t recommend it enough because it looks great at home, and because it includes the Blu-ray version of Tron: The Original Classic. The transfer on both of the Blu-rays look amazing, and if you’ve got a high end system, this is going to be a disc that will show it off. The movie is shown in its IMAX aspect ratio, so it doesn’t quite fill a standard screen, but that doesn’t take anything away. I was blown away by how great Tron: Legacy looked at home. Unfortunately, I am not set up for home 3D yet, so I can’t speak to what that looks like, but I have to assume that this is going to be a film that takes full advantage of that technology.
