The Rinzler boy

Damn, that cock ring is ginormous. And why does it have that glowstick shit on it? Wouldn't that burn his junk?
Most remixes of film or TV score music are meh, but French remixer Basic Slack's take on "Rinzler"--Daft Punk's thrilling cue from the Tron: Legacy "Disc Wars" skirmish between Sam (Garrett Hedlund) and Rinzler (Anis Cheurfa), the antagonist who always arms himself with two discs a la Chow Yun-Fat's double Beretta action in John Woo flicks and Darth Maul's double-bladed saber-wielding in The Phlaccid Menace--is a pretty good expansion of that two-minute cue.

Tron: Legacy music supervisor Jason Bentley told the MTV Movies Blog that "The score that [Daft Punk] set out to make was one that could stand with Star Wars or Superman." It sure does stand with them. The fact that I keep adding more tracks from Tron: Legacy to "Assorted Fistful" rotation and have listened to Daft Punk's score repeatedly, whether in its original form or in remixes like Basic Slack's--and even more often than I did with any of the Star Wars or Superman score albums--is proof of that.
