I'm one of the few folks who saw TRON in the theater during its original 1982 release. Of course, after it came out on video, the film acquired a fervent following. In fact, it has become so popular that it has now inspired a brand-new sequel, TRON: Legacy, which opens on Friday. As if I wasn't already psyched enough to see it, I've learned that when the main character, Sam, is reunited with his dad after 20 years, Sam says that he has a dog to whom he is devoted and who "is a rescue." It's a smart way of showing that Sam's a great guy. Kudos to the filmmakers for making the point that people who care about animals always adopt and never buy.
