It could be Martha Stewart for all I care. I guess I should revise it to say:

IT LOOKS LIKE FLYNN IS A BAD GUY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




PS: Who's the geek with the stupid hair and the big nose?

That's not Michael Sheen in that picture with Olivia Wade and Jeff Bridges. Michael Sheen is way hotter. That dude is http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1330560/ Garrett Hedlund.



I take it back, dude is kinda cute.

Tron, last I looked, had a very long wait O_O I swear though, Jeff Bridges is the shit right now. I watched an old movie with him and Glenn Close - god damn he was sexy. He's still so damn handsome, still.

The Abridged TRON

As Told By Pharren



Flynn is this dude who designed video games for Big Evil Software Corporation, but some other jackass took the credit and became CEO - cause that's how the world works; software programmers become CEOs all the time - so Flynn opened an arcade. Big Evil CEO has this program called The Master Control Program, alias MCP (no relation to the Akai MPC... we hope) which is subverting the company network by taking over the functions of all the other programs, and plans to take over the world. For real. Flynn's buddy's girlfriend still works for Big Evil Software Corp, on some super secret high tech laser shit that zaps an orange into cyberspace. For real. Flynn's buddy wrote a program called TRON which was designed to police the MCP. Flynn breaks in to Big Evil Software Corporation labs with the help of buddy and buddygirlfriend to find evidence of Big Evil CEO's betrayal, and the MPC zaps his dumbass self and sucks him up into the Big Evil Software Corporation network.



Once inside there's all this quasi-religious shit about The Users - real-world programmers - who are worshipped by the network's denizens - the programs, duh - which conveniently resemble their programmers. The MPC is conducting some sort of neo-inquisition where all programs must renounce their belief in The Users or perish in these totally awesome gladiator sports.



Flynn meets some programs and kicks some ass playing Jai Alai and then busts through a wall with his lightcycle and shit. Rad. Since he is actually one of The Users, he has super powers like Neo in The Matrix. He eventually finds the TRON program and teams up with him and buddygirlfriend's digital self, and they make their way to an I/O port where they communicate with buddy. TRON's frisbee (yes.) is imbued with a virus designed to destroy the MCP, and so Flynn, TRON, and buddygirlfriend make their way to the MCP, where they do battle with Big Evil CEO's digital representation, and insert the virus.



Flynn magically reappears in the real world and becomes CEO of Big Evil Software Corporation.

Oh.

Indeed.

By the way, this is the origin of the saying "In like Flynn"

Well then! I stand corrected! And you're just calling me young so you don't feel so ancient.
