Tron Legacy, one step closer to bringing back the dead?

ws_Tron_Legacy_1280x8001

Most of the geeks and nerds I’ve spoken to have been either really excited about the release of Tron Legacy or can’t even relate since the original was released in 1982 and most of these kids weren’t even born yet. Sad to say, I was around but I was one of those closet nerds that loved the original Tron. So going into this weekend with the expectations that I was really not gonna be impressed with the film and that originals are always better, I was happy to be somewhat right. It wasn’t that great story-wise, but really? I’m complaining about a story that is based off of some other digital dimensional world, ok nerd. Anyway what I did really like about the movie was how, like the original film, pushed the realm of technological entertainment. The 3d was fantastic, fast and played well with the architectural landscape of Tron’s ‘Grid’. But what was the most impressive was the facial motion capture.  You remember Brad Pitts character in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”, well ILM did some amazing work with Jeff Bridges to bring his 30 year old character from the original to interact with today’s Jeff Bridges.  Although there’s a bit of rubber-ness to the CGI version, I’m pretty sure we are looking at a crazy time in film making similar to when we moved from prosthetic makeup to CGI makeup. Think about the aquatic characters of Pirate’s of the Caribbean. You can’t do that with prosthetic or it’ll look like the Muppets!

How soon will it be when actors can play themselves in at any age? And obviously the next question would be, when would we not even need actors all together and just create them in the digital world. Did we just open the digital pandora’s box in film making?
