Jay Maynard, the man who will be forever known as “The Tron Guy” (yeah, it’s going to be the lead line in his obituary), got paid to review Tron: Legacy for Wired Magazine. What proceeds next is a restrained nerdgasm unlike any you have seen before.
Perhaps the emotional ending influenced my final reaction. As the credits rolled, I had to fight off tears. I would have been deeply honored and pleased to have my name associated with Tron: Legacy in some way, even if the sequel had stunk up the theater. With the film as outstanding as it actually turned out, that would have been an experience like no other. Instead, I walked out of the theater to my cold truck, determined to not let my feelings show. Nobody there would have understood.
