tron-1982-80s-films-298793_834_11001Tron was released in 1982 by Disney.  The movie is about Kevin Flynn, a former employee of the mega-corporation ENCOM, who claims to be the inventor of numerous highly successful video games that the company has stolen from him.  With the help of some friends who are current employees, he breaks in to try and find the evidence.  The Master Control Program (MCP) rules all at Encom, is slowly taking over all programs at the company, and uses an experiemental laser to suck Flynn into the computer and neutralize him.  Flynn plays real-life video games (including a futuristic version of Hi Li and riding lightcycles) with allies (including a program named Tron), and breaks free to go after the MCP, find his evidence, and escape.
