    TRON: Legacy

    ★★★★½

    In my opinion, there are few films as visually arresting as Tron: Legacy. It’s exactly the kind of film that caters to my specific preferences as a film fan, which explains why I continually find myself drawn back into The Grid.

Nothing comes easy to Batman. He loses time and time again in this film, and yet, his drive to make the world better is what keeps him going. I find that to be the pinnacle of what makes a character compelling.
