By the way...

This was one of the trailers before TRON.

I have to see this movie.  The fact that the Asylum didn't make it is always a good sign.

Not tron, but still awesome

If you've cared enough to read past my review-in-a-title, then I congratulate you, dear sir or madam.

I want to make this perfectly clear to anyone who hasn't seen this movie yet: this movie is not TRON.  It's got a lot of the same things in common (and technically counts as a sequel) but it might as well be a completely different movie.  It has a different feel, and probably the only emotion that will come from fans of the old  movie will be fanboy rage.

Now that I've established that, this movie is awesome.  It's an 80s style sci-fi movie with an excellent soundtrack.  It also rips off movies left and right in a way that rivals World of Warcraft.  In this movie I noticed elements of:

-Star Wars
-5th element
-David bowie

And that's just a few off the top of my head.  There are quite a few moments that had me and my brother laughing, but I hesitate to call them unintentionally hilarious.  The more I think about them, there's no way it's unintentional.

If you want a good 80s style sci-fi flick that you can just sit back and enjoy, this is a movie for you.

I see...

They call it "Power Metal."

Blind guardian takes its lyrics from fantasy books like The Wheel of Time, The Lord of the Rings, The Song of Fire and Ice, and Dragonlance.
