TV & FILM
Michael Garcia - August 29, 2016
I grew up on classic westerns as well as sci-fi. My grandfather and I used to watch all the old Clint Eastwood spaghetti westerns and the latest sci-fi epic on the weekends. One of my favorites, that combined the two genres, was Westworld with Yul Brynner. Now it is getting a slick remake as a TV series on HBO. We all know that HBO can make a great TV show with a huge budget, but will it be good? If it's anything like this trailer then the answer is a resounding yes. It tells the tale of a western themed virtual theme park where people pay to pretend to be in the old west. Everyone in the world is an android. Well, as always happens, the androids malfunction and start to rise up. Then wackiness ensues. By wackiness I mean extreme violence.
Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood, Ed Harris, James Marsden, and Thandie Newton star in the series. How the hell did they get Anthony Hopkins on TV? They paid.
