Tron 2

According to this article on Ars Technica, Disney plans to remake the early CGI flick Tron. I don't find that so surprising, Hollywood remakes a lot of junk. What jumped out at me was how the author of the article had such fond memories of the original movie:

...the original Tron was so ahead of its time that Klugman and Sternthal have a lot of work on their hands if they want to impress geeks they way they were impressed more than 20 years ago.

Now I wasn't a full fledged geek back in 1982, at the time I still had dreams of being the next Jacques Cousteau, so maybe I didn't get it, but in my opinion Tron was just insultingly stupid. Sure I get the whole life of Christ parallels, so perhaps the movie has some artistic merit, but as a fodder for a budding technologist it was crap.
