TRON: LEGACY Almost Brought Tron Guy to Tears

You may or may not have heard of Tron Guy but that's a picture of him above. His name is Jay Maynard, and he comes from internet fame. He's a computer programmer who has managed to be featured on Jimmy Kimmel Live and on South Park because he dresses up as a character from the world of Tron. 

Tron Guy recently saw the highly anticipated Tron: Legacy and he had to fight off the tears while watching it. 

Here's what he wrote for Wired who got him into an early screening of the film:

I’ve been waiting 28 years to see if the other shoe would ever drop on the Tron universe. It has, and the result is visually stunning, intellectually engaging and emotionally exhausting.

It's a logical continuation of the original, although you need not have seen Tron to understand what's happening now. Strong performances by Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde and Michael Sheen should prevent the kind of complaints about wooden acting that surrounded the original movie. The result delivers an unexpected emotional impact, especially at the ending.

Perhaps the emotional ending influenced my final reaction. As the credits rolled, I had to fight off tears. I would have been deeply honored and pleased to have my name associated with Tron: Legacy in some way, even if the sequel had stunk up the theater. With the film as outstanding as it actually turned out, that would have been an experience like no other. Instead, I walked out of the theater to my cold truck, determined to not let my feelings show. Nobody there would have understood.
