WESTWORLD key art | ©2016 HBO

The 1973 cult hit WESTWORLD, based on Michael Crichton’s novel, centers around an immersive amusement park where customers can play at being gunslingers among lifelike androids. Naturally, something goes wrong. Now WESTWORLD has been reinvented by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy Nolan for HBO, which is now running the first season on Sunday nights. The new WESTWORLD still takes place in a very realistic recreated Old West, where profoundly humanlike androids do whatever the guests want. There are indeed glitches. But this WESTWORLD, instead of jumping into the “technology gone wrong, must escape” scenario, instead asks what all of the […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review FUTUREWORLD

FUTUREWORLD Blu-ray | ©2013 Syfy

Stars: Peter Fonda, Blythe Danner, Arthur Hill Writer: Mayo Simon, George Schenck Director: Richard T. Heffron Suggested Retail Price: $19.97 With 1973’s WESTWORLD, writer/director Michael Crichton created an innovative sci-fi film about robots at an adult amusement park that malfunction. Many films have cribbed from this seminal sci-fi film, even though it has become a bit dated. Three years later, a sequel was hatched without Crichton with FUTUREWORLD, and surprisingly, it holds up quite well. The new Blu-ray release brings to life the film in high-definition with a story that is more INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS than WESTWORLD, and […]Read On »
