I find Ron Jeremy as physically repulsing as almost any being on this planet, but this Tron: Jeremy parody is unfortunately too good for me to skip. The ending is especially clever. And it has a girl with large breasts. Who am I to deny you the right to see it?
As for Tron: Legacy, I have been seeing if not reading the reviews, which have ranged from ambivalent to dire. I’m not too worried personally, since I’m giving this movie about three and a half stars just for existing, but who knows if the insane media blitz will counteract all the bad press, box office-wise. However, it’s the only movie I’m looking genuinely forward to seeing in 3-D, so there’s that.
At any rate, I’ll be watching it tomorrow and then instantly driving across the country for the holidays; Chris Cummins will be taking care of you on Monday, and my Tron: Legacy review will probably go up on Tuesday. Maybe Monday, but probably Tuesday. If you guys wanna talk Tron now, feel free to do so in the comments here.

He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
