Best & Worst: Computer Movies
Best: Tron (1982)It’s a bit rough around the edges now, and the costumes haven’t exactly aged gracefully, but Tron will forever be remembered as a groundbreaking leap for CGI-augmented movies.

He has to take on the Master Control Program via a series of challenges in the neon environment. John Lasseter has referred to Tron as a huge influence which allowed many young animators to see the potential of computer animation.
