Wow, December of 2010 is shaping up, at least to this film fan, to be a real slice of stink. So far the lineup for 12/10 includes The Smurfs, Yogi Bear and The Green Hornet. I don’t know about you, but that sounds like two potential rivals to the suck created by Alvin and The Chipmunks, and a Seth Rogan movie that willl most likely go down in flames. Sorry to be Debbie Downer, but I get no sense of excitement or creativity with any of those titles. Smells like burnt fruitcake to me.
Hollywood is currently stuck (and probably has been for a few years now) in this dark love funk of all things 1980s. This explains the constant barrage of 80s craptastic TV heading to the big screen, as well as Hollywood’s leg-hugging and re-introduction of the never-was-cool, never-will-be-cool gimmick that is 3D movies. But I digress. This post is really about Tron: Legacy and how it’s scheduled to hit multiplexes in 3D on December 17, 2010. 1980s Tron was lame. No reason to suspect this won’t be even lamer. Jeff Bridges. Pfft! Sellout!
