Tron

Ready player one.

Innovative for its time, Tron remains vibrant as it careens towards its 40th anniversary.

The tale of a software engineer who gets trapped inside the video game and has to fight his way back out, it’s chockful of trippy images and anchored by the always-great Jeff Bridges.

A film ahead of its time, its impact can be measured in the films which came afterwards.

Pixar bigwig John Lasseter once said, “Without Tron, there would be no Toy Story.”

Now, if someone would just put Woody and Buzz on a pair of light cycles, we’d really be talking.
