This is a classic that definitely needs to be watched (or rewatched) by anyone thinking of seeing the sequel in December.

When this chance comes-up again - don't walk but run to get a ticket.
The room that night was jam packed. The movie itself has a surprisingly complex storyline, visual effects & acting - all noticeably enjoyed by the reaction of an adoring crowd from 7 year olds to 70 plus.
Very little of this movie was actually made on a computer - as noted by writer/director Lisberger and the Visual Effects guru's.
Continuous movement did not exist on computer screens at that time - nor did email. Lisberger noted the visual effects guys would actually have to take Poloroid shots of their computer screen, and MAIL them to the director for review..
Jeff Bridges and the other greats were phenominal - Bridges himself is a riot ..!
These filmmakers that night were brilliant, humble and very informative.. Their comradery, jokes and sheer technical insights just blew the mind - as did their palpable respect for one another - in the making of this groundbreaking film.

Awesome, ground braking and one of a kind. Super cool to have Steve Leisberger there with 4 other Fx crew members from the movie at the Aero Theater.
