Joseph Kosinski has an elephant's memory when it comes to bad reviews.
To be fair, I saw "TRON: Legacy" twice before I reviewed it, and I had some nice things to say about the film in terms of design and how Kosinski re-created the world of TRON, but I also strongly disliked the screenplay. I referred to the film as a "Fleshlight" in my review, saying it looks like a real film, but there's nothing alive about it. I think it's a very pretty but completely empty film overall, and if anything, the sheer aesthetic drop-dead beauty of the whole thing only bugged me more. When it came time to do interviews for "Oblivion," Kosinski turned me down cold because of that "TRON" review. Oh, well.
