Tron was released in 1982 and to be honest itreally blew my young mind, already a video game addict, the last thing I needed was a movie starring Jeff Bridges, a variety of at the time amazing "computer graphics" and a really cool "Light Cycle"
From the Wikipedia:
"In the year it was released," says director Lisberger, "the Motion Picture Academy refused to nominate Tron for special effects because they said we 'cheated' when we used computers which, in the light of what happened, is just mind-boggling."
