One look at the newly redesigned lightcycles in Tron, and you know this movie is going to be a wild ride. And it performs surprisingly well as a better-late-than-never sequel that takes advantage of new actors and technology (and pushes it a bit past where it can actually go). But for his first feature film, Kosinski made the most common kind of mistake: story.
After nearly three decades, a return to the virtual world of Tron has been promoted at Comic Cons around the world for more than a year. With an ‘evolved’ look from the 80′s classic, some Tron purists are up in arms about the redesign, but you can’t deny that TRON Legacy has a gorgeous production design. But what about this digital Jeff Bridges?
By all rights, Paranormal Activity 2 is better than the first. It has more characters, more interesting characters, better camera work, cooler effects, even better sound design and a bigger, more impressive story. But somehow, just doesn’t measure up to the visceral experience of watching the first one. We’ve already had this experience and it was called Paranormal Activity. That doesn’t mean we didn’t jump out of our seats and lose some popcorn watching this bad boy. It packs a spook.
As a film and as an adaptation of Stephanie Meyer’s bestselling tween romance novels, Eclipse’s director, David Slade, most certainly out-did either of his predecessors. While the love story remains intact to satisfy Nat’s need for any angsty werewolf/vampire/human love triangle, Matt appreciated the clear effort taken to attract a male audience by adding a dark and more violent visual style, that was clearly riffing on actual horror elements for the first time in the series.

We were blown away by the first Ironman, and with the same creative team behind the sequel, we had high hopes going into part 2. The drama, action and comedy were all firing on all cylinders and it didn’t take long for us to realize we were in an Ironman film! Long live the Ironmen!
