Default Westworld (HBO remake series)

I heard about this a while ago but forgot until I read this article today. Old farts on the forum will probably remember the 70s sci-fi thriller movie called Westworld (based on an older Michael Crichton novel) which was basically Jurassic Park with androids.



And it was referenced in the Itchy & Scratchyland ep of the Simpsons where the robots go bezerk.


HBO is remaking the movie into a series, and their current track record on drama series has been solid. They haven't done a major scifi series yet, could be good.

Maybe I'm just old and jaded, but it seems like the entertainment industry is batting out of their league lately with the remakes.

Ed Harris might be a passable Yul Brenner, but he'll never a good enough Yul Brenner...in the same way that Christian Bale will never hold a candle to Chuck Heston in the Ten Commandments.

This kind of production seems like total SyFy fodder and if it was, i probably wouldn't give two sh**s, but coming from HBO, I want to check it out and give it a chancr.

I like the part where they pee into the machine and it turns into water which Kevin Costner drinks.

I think its bc old versions of Vbulletin let you edit the title in the first post but it still appeared wrong on the forum. *shrug* it's been a while since I had to fix a title typo, haven't looked

It was messing with my head. Had to read it about 10 times to figure out what the heck was going on.

But he's not playing Yul Brynner. He's playing a cyborg cowboy gunfighter. And I think he'll be fantastic.

My point is that some characters become permanently linked to the actor.

Hopefully, changing it from movie to series form will cause enough changes to create some distance the two characters, since in the movie it took very little time for the rogue androids to kill most of the guests of the resort.

He'll pretty much be a cross between the T-1000 and his character in Apaloosa-- so basically, himself.

I'd like to submit Rooster Cogburn from both film versions of True Grit. John Wayne and Jeff Bridges knocked it out of the park in their respective portrayals.
