TRON Ranks Highly On Top Visual Effects List

By TronFAQ on Wednesday, May 16, 2007 at 10:12 PM
The Visual Effects Society (an organization that brings together Visual Effects professionals from all different entertainment markets) recently released a "50 Most Influential Visual Effects Films of All Time" list, as first reported in a thread on the TRON-Sector site.

The list is available for download in Adobe PDF format, HERE.

I'll save you the trouble of downloading it, if you're only interested in where TRON placed on the list, by revealing the top ten.

10. The Abyss (1989)
  9. Alien (1979)
  8. Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977)
  7. King Kong (1933)
  6. Tron (1982)
  5. Jurassic Park (1993)
  3. The Matrix (1999)
  3. 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
  2. Blade Runner (1982)
  1. Star Wars (1977)

As you can see, TRON placed 6th on the list . . . closely behind such classics as 2001, Blade Runner, and Star Wars. This is actually a very impressive showing. Being considered worthy to be in the company of films like these, is no small feat.

    I agree with some of the thought put into the list, however, They should show disciplines used in ther explinations, such as which movie was the "best" in terms of dedication, man houts, time to completion, who is "champion" of movie making is just theory, so break it down! geesh. The overall brilliance in terms of society, and how far ahead the science was. There are alot of influences that aren't discussed in a list.

    Someone might pull a rabbit out of thier hat for that one.
