This is a point-of-view ride through Shanghai Disneyland's TRON Lightcycle Power Run roller coaster. It looks like a seizure. It also includes some of the things you see waiting in the queue line for the ride...

comparing Easter to original Tron

(this is NOT me, it's a tweet thread by that Ken Jennings guy who won a lot on Jeopardy!)

Quote:
The best movie version of the passion of Christ is Tron (1982).

Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) programmed Space Paranoids, Light Cycles, etc. He is, quite literally, the "creator" of the game grid.

When he enters his creation, he finds he has miraculous powers to control game elements, heal ailing programs, etc.

The dark forces that now rule the digital world hate him and put him on trial. They think his talk about being a "User" is blasphemy.

In the end, he sacrifices his own life, throwing himself into the communication beam of the Master Control Program.

His sacrifice defeats the MCP and redeems the digital world. His disciple Yori: "He saved you. He saved all of us."

Flynn suffers when he creates the new junction in the Solar Sailer beam, and Sark believes he's been "de-rezzed," but he rises again.

After Flynn returns to his own plane, Yori kisses Tron the way Flynn taught her, spreading his message of love.

The I/O towers light up to the horizon. Flynn's message of hope is spreading across the game grid, even to the ends of the earth. Credits.
