I "discovered" this yesterday. It's not in the same block of channels as the other Disney crap in the sky guide, and it shows, as the name suggests, Disney films. There's also, if it takes your fancy, Cinemagic HD lurking hidden in the Sky Guide.


So yesterday, I was able to introduce the little ones to Toy Story, which was great. I also managed to find Ben's old Woody and Buzz in his toyboxes, so they're being used again.


Also on yesterday, was Tron (not as good as I remembered!) This/next week, they'll be showing Bug's Life, Cars, Aristocats, Monsters Inc. and towards the end of September, Up. Hooray!

Nice. I'm afraid I've only got Freeview now so can't join in.


Did I mention that Toy Story 3 is ace? At one point tears were streaming down my face whilst I watched.


I still have a lot of affection for Tron, but should perhaps try to watch it again. Back in the early days of portable LCD video games (is that what they were called?) a friend had the Tron game and it was great cos there was the light cycles, then the frisbees and then attack the MCP. Can't remember if there was a tank round.


Tron Legacy is just around the corner

Interesting that Jeff Bridges is back, although being distinctly un-dude-like. Wonder if Boxleitner will make an appearance?

Apparently the soundtrack to Tron Legacy is by Daft Punk.

I saw Tron - Legacy back in December. It's not all that.


The first half hour or so is all right - perhaps even the first half. But I actually got bored by the end.


It looks great - but even that got a bit old after a while. I didn't expect it to be amazing but it really should have been better than it was. It was just quite flat and predictable. There were a couple of nice 3D moments but, as ever, not enough to justify the extra expense of watching it in 3D.


The weird thing is that two "younger people" at work saw it - one male one female, both approx 25 - and they both enjoyed it way more than I did. Neither of them had seen the original so I don't know if that had any bearing on it.


Also - the CGI young Jeff Bridges/Flynn just looks weird. To me anyway.

I think that as humans we're wired to spot when things don't look quite right. From CGI people to people who've had plastic surgery. There's like a sixth sense that they're not pukka. On the subject of CGI, it's weird watching Star Wars Eps I-III on ITV lately, and noting how quickly the CGI has dated and how crap it looks now. Effects always seem to date. I noticed that Gollum wasn't as good as I remembered him when I watched Lord of The Rings recently, yet I remember being blown away at the time about how realistic he was.

you're probably right about cgi, but i think it might actually look better on the big screen - i know that that doesn't make much sense, you would think that logically it would look better on the small screen where you're getting less detail... oh i don't know. i just remember watching aliens on tv years ago and thinking that the landing craft looked a bit rubbish when it had been fine on the big screen.
