Tron, Daft Punk, Tron: Legacy

It's a cool world, I'm sure Daft Punk was influenced by Tron; Tron: Legacy however took all of it's inspiration from Daft Punk.

The movie is good because it stands on the shoulders of Daft Punk's masterful soundscape and music. I don't know if there's a name for this type of relationship (other than maybe self referential possibly?), but it's cool shit! Sort of like the first time you wrap your brain around writing a C compiler in C. Initially difficult to grasp and later makes perfect sense to the extent you can't imagine a more logical creation path or process. Until I think of-or learn a better term I'll refer to the concept as a 'Beeblebrox'. Ya, him, Zaphod Beeblebrox, due to his "semi-half-cousin" relation of sharing "three of the same mothers" as "Ford Prefect" via "an accident with a contraceptive and a time machine" and the fact his direct ancestors from his father are also his direct descendants. I digress… In any case, the Tron: Legacy soundtrack is some of my favorite music; right up there with Pink Floyd.
