Brief Synopsis:
While an enduring cult classic, the original Tron film suffers from a critical pacing issue in its opening act. Cutting between the world of the Grid and the real world only serves to alienate new viewers and confuses the internal logic of the story. By removing the first 8(ish) minutes, the plot is not only clearer, but gets going much faster and with fewer distractions.
After trying to show the film to several friends of mine over the years, I took note of how much I had to explain what was going on, especially during the first act. Inspired by a recent viewing of The Wizard of Oz, I took it upon myself to keep the mystery of the grid intact, and in doing so improve upon the pacing of the film.
Additional Notes:
I also remade the deleted text intro found on the DVD and blu-ray as a way to ease the audience into the world.
