Hayden Harnett for TRON

This is going to be my last (but long) blog post for awhile since I'll be on vacation tomorrow, but I just got back from seeing TRON Legacy in 3D. Being a die-hard fan of the original 80s classic, I was skeptical and expecting something totally mediocre, something contrived; another failed remake lost in the sea of cgi-overkill. The latter is what got me the most, seeing as how the original was so cutting edge during its time, but during a time where the internet, social-networking, and blogging were virtually non-existent. I was afraid the new version would fall flat, a  seemingly 'easy' Hollywood effort with all the technology around today, and even the news of 'latest cutting edge' techniques cropping up wouldn't convince me totally...until I saw it. The verdict? I'll say this. Plot = average, but solid and comparable with the original. Visuals = I just about peed myself. So beautiful was it that 'visually stunning' can't seem to fully describe the aesthetics of the film. It was exquisite, and I was lost.  Couple that with Daft Punk's soundtrack and I was floating in dark, cyber-heaven, dreaming of what life would be like in Tron-world.  My eyes felt like they were on holiday, drinking in the gorgeous dark, neon metropolis landscapes, not to mention Beau Garrett and Olivia Wilde in their extreme hotness. It also comes as no surprise that these ladies proved inspirational, forcing me to scour every nook and cranny of the internet for Tron-esque wares (the shoes...it's all about the friggin' shoes!) but alas, all I came up with were accessories for now. The above are some neato bags being offered by Hayden Harnett. I am particularly fond of the cuff and wouldn't mind the little clutch. Above these, I had to post pics of the gorgeous Tron sirens. I'll be waiting to get my grubby hands on a pair of "Quorra" boots if they ever become available.
