The Worldbuilding is Not Enough

I have two New Year’s Resolutions for 2011. 1. Eat fewer donuts. 2. Stop giving films credit for worldbuilding. I am sick of worldbuilding.

Playboy Does “Tron” — NSFW

You won’t be seeing nudies of “Tron: Legacy” star and actual real life princess, Olivia Wilde, in Playboy’s new pictorial tribute, but the models playing characters from the film have their own kind of retro-futurism allure.
