This new edition of Tron, Disney’s widely celebrated (though hardly beloved) movie about life inside a videogame is about as deluxe as laserdiscs get — a freezable widescreen transfer featuring commentary by the creative team, plus an extra disc’s worth of deleted scenes, extra soundtrack music, and theatrical trailers. Unfortunately, the movie itself is still a badly scripted mess whose truly groundbreaking computer animation looks pretty cheesy on a TV set. In short: It’s the definition of period piece. B
