The hateful eight

Tron: Legacy

As a person who has never seen Tron I may be the wrong person to review this film. But then again, I’m sure I’m not alone, so here goes :)

Some twenty years ago Sam Flynn’s father went to work and never came home. Since then his company has gone from strength to strength, sometimes at the expense of Kevin Flynn’s original ideals. But Sam doesn’t want to be CEO of a company, instead he doesn’t seem to work, drops out of college, and adopts a rescue dog. Oh, and plays tricks on his own company like releasing their products onto the internet for free. But one day a page comes from Flynn’s Arcade. But the phone there has been disconnected for years. Sam goes to investigate and discovers that his father has discovered how to transport himself onto “the grid” and has been trapped there ever since.

Daybreakers

IMDb ; Official Site ; MetaCritic This film is utterly meh-worthy. It isn’t entertaining enough to be enjoyable, but isn’t bad enough to merit a walk-out. You’ll most likely forget about it two minutes after you leave the cinema. It’s supposed to be an “original” take on the vamp movie I suppose, with its vampires […]
