i haven't seen it (it's not my poster), but it does feature a fleeing peter fonda and blythe danner. and the tag is something like "futureworld... where you can get every sensual desire fulfilled! the price: $1000 a day... and your life!"

"And in a funny way, the shaving of my, uh, head has been a liberation from, uh, a lot of, uh, stupid vanities really. Uh, it has simplified everything for me, it has opened a lot of doors maybe."

I'm not what you think I am
I'm the king of Siam
I've got a bald head
My name is Yul Brynner
And I am a famous movie star

Perhaps you saw me in Westworld
I acted like a robotic cowboy
It was my best role
I can not deny I
Felt right home deep inside
That electronic carcass

You're such monumental slime
Let the punishment fit the crime
Tie it to a chair
The house music will blare
And turn your ears into
A medicinal jelly

Stay inside on Christmas Day
And make believe that you are my candy cane
You said, "I'm not that type,
No I'm not sweet, and I'm not overripe

Bob Dylan sang in
"Its alright mama im only bleeding":
"Everything from toy guns that spark to flesh colored Christs that glow in the dark
Its easy to see we got in too far and not much is really sacred."

i can't seem to find futureworld on DVD anywhere (it isn't available on Netflix).

anyway, i wonder if crichton's death means that there won't be a remake after all -- the original is a fun little movie. the obvious comparison would be to jurassic park, but i wonder if westworld also had some influence on the terminator (to wit, the relentless robot that can't be stopped absent a malfunction) or even the nightmare on elm street series (yul brynner with his melting face and on fire seems very freddy krueger-esque).

If they DO run with the color-by-song-title arranged-for-faux-period-instruments idea, I think I'll actually end up liking it even more

Sorry that was glib. I'm still watching it because it's pretty and the futurism stuff is cool. Everything else is pretty hard-to-defend.

DJI, Wednesday, 6 May 2020 15:49 (two years ago) link

It is pretty, I think it's worth it for the architecture porn this season. And honestly, one of the better near-future set and prop designs I've seen on TV lately. Thought the rideshare cars and drones were really cool looking.

soaring skrrrtpeggios (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Wednesday, 6 May 2020 15:52 (two years ago) link

It was funny how useless the riot control robot was in an actual riot situation

El Tomboto, Wednesday, 6 May 2020 16:22 (two years ago) link

Agree that when it comes to production design, architecture, technology etc., this was one of the best-looking and most credible future predictions I've seen on TV (except for the silly evil AIs, I guess). They really put a lot of effort in all those details, too bad the plot didn't quite live up to it.

TBH, I think this season would've worked better as an independent series without the baggage from the previous seasons dragging down the main plot, which was mostly self-standing anyway. For example, is there really much point in dragging Ed Harris and Thandie Newton around, when pretty much all they got to do was rehash the same character moments they did last season, which had little to do with the AI plot?

Tuomas, Wednesday, 6 May 2020 18:38 (two years ago) link

I was less into the architecture as a matter of plot because they used a bunch of existing buildings that are very aspirational and one-offs that get used as “the future” all the time! Very pretty, though

You could argue the use of buildings with those signifiers unironically are a strong indicator from the get-go that we’re seeing a dystopia

mh, Wednesday, 6 May 2020 19:21 (two years ago) link

At some point I just turn my brain off for a minute and watch hot robots kill people and mech robots smash through Calatrava architecture

This was the only approach to this show and even then there were diminishing returns. It's one valuable service was revealing how bad Aaron Paul is at acting. He was Vince Vaughn in True Detective Season 2 level bad, just much less distinctive.

Couldn't think of a better place to post this incredible, wide-ranging interview with Thandie Newton, where she talks about...everything, pretty much. Here's the Westworld-specific part, probably the least incendiary bit of the whole thing but still worth excerpting:

In Westworld, your performance is so poignant, both ferocious and beautiful. Do you have conversations with the showrunners around the arc of the season or where you would like your character to go?
I like to stay sane about my position, which is that I am being employed to tell someone else’s story. Where I do have a degree of choice is in taking the role, but once I’m in, I’m a team player. I do have frustrations with Maeve, but that’s part of her story line.

What are some of those frustrations?
Well, season one, the evolution of this robot who then has the revelation that she’s not human, and that she had a past that involved a child, and the betrayal of that, and then using information to empower herself — it was such a powerful story. I’m not surprised that it hooked people in. And then the second and third season has Maeve with a different directive, but it’s not her own. She’s following other people’s leads, by and large. In the first season, she was driving, dominating, pretty straightforward. I think Maeve is a metaphor for the dispossessed in the world, and she’s become that kind of leader, but she’s not had a chance to lead, and I don’t think she necessarily should. She certainly doesn’t want to.

This show was terrible, a more expensive version of some random SyFy series shot in Vancouver, but what kept me watching is the bizarre way the show clearly thinks of itself as good, and in some ways it instantiates the themes it clumsily keeps expositing; it is an artificial product built to provide cheap, repetitive pleasures that is slowly coming to concede it is not the real thing

It was distracting but also somehow great to cast Todd Chavez as a tragic hero and just have him play the character in the exact same way, so that he's running around shooting a machine gun and bemoaning that his whole life has been stolen from him by hidden powers while deploying the exact affect of a hilarious fuck-up stuck on the couch

Looks like one company, Elastic, is resposible for a lot of them

https://vimeo.com/elastic

Wall is too humble to admit that his own work on Game of Thrones put his company, the design firm Elastic, on the map—but it has. Word of mouth spread since he won an Emmy for outstanding main-title design in 2011, and now these sequences have become a crucial part of Elastic’s D.N.A. On top of advertorial work, like producing the Comic-Con teaser for the Pacific Rim sequel and these viral videos for Batman v Superman, Wall’s team has collectively designed main titles for Westworld, American Gods, True Detective, The Night Manager, and The Crown—and that’s merely a surface-level rundown of Elastic’s prestigious and lengthy résumé.

...just as the design firm livens up the small screen on everything from HBO’s The Leftovers and The Young Pope to Netflix’s Daredevil and Iron Fist.

I thought it was a decent first episode. I've pretty much completely forgotten what happened last season and I'm sure that's probably for the best.

From what I could tell, it's same timeline, 8 years down the road, and confirmed in an article that ERW is now playing a completely new character unconnected to Dolores (or at least that's what they are telling the press at this point)

Guayaquil (eephus!), Tuesday, 19 July 2022 04:04 (four months ago) link

I haven't watched any of this season and don't know if I will but I feel that's the logical path for the show to take after the last season, where motivations for actions were impossible to decipher. I started enjoying the Hannibal TV show much more when it was obvious it wasn't going to make logical sense

Deep cut for the LOST heads:

Remember that show, and the character Michael who had such classic lines as "where's my boy?" and "WAAAAALT" and "I need to find my son!" (good lord did the writers do him dirty)

Well, in this show, Caleb is constantly worried about his wife and daughter. That daughter, in the many years later timeline, is played by Aurora Perrineau, the daughter of Harold Perrineau, who played Michael on LOST.

Such pretentious dreck! It is not even, exactly, a TV show at this point. Just a canvas against which familiar actors wander around trying to get their mouths around terrible lines and pronouncing them in ways that doesn't even sound like English as spoken by humans. Which I guess it is mostly in fact not supposed to be. I really have a sensation that they made a show for no one to watch for algorithmic reasons I can't understand.

Stevolende, Tuesday, 16 August 2022 08:28 (three months ago) link

I mean, if they do another season I’ll watch it with low expectations.

It would be cool if a noted author wrote a novelization of the whole series, fixing the various narrative problems and making it better, deeper, more fleshed out.

The whole concept is interesting, but it’s just so clunky and ridiculous in execution and ins and outs - a blockbuster, prestige cable series as envisioned by philosophers, theologians, set designers, stylists, executives, and effects people.

The Triumphant Return of Bernard & Stubbs (Raymond Cummings), Tuesday, 16 August 2022 11:46 (three months ago) link

They needed someone in the writer’s room, a veteran of other shows, to be kind of an audience advocate and tell out, “hey, what the fuuuuuck” and head off some basic narrative bullshit that this show happily wandered through routinely.

The Triumphant Return of Bernard & Stubbs (Raymond Cummings), Tuesday, 16 August 2022 11:48 (three months ago) link

A lot of my fascination with WW after the great S1 has been wondering how it has continued to exist at all.

The Triumphant Return of Bernard & Stubbs (Raymond Cummings), Tuesday, 16 August 2022 11:49 (three months ago) link

There were a lot of things I found interesting about this season, and I might have been more harsh on the ending than necessary, but overall it was kind of a mess and the leaving a bunch of plot threads to the finale was probably not the best choice.

mh, Tuesday, 16 August 2022 14:34 (three months ago) link

This season has been a roller coaster and I haven't even watched it yet - just read people's reactions

Vinnie, Wednesday, 17 August 2022 08:58 (three months ago) link

Did end up watching season 4, half because of the more positive reactions to the earlier episodes, half out of curiosity. Liked it more than I thought I would, my favorite season since the first. Found it much easier to understand what characters were trying to do and why than before, and it had a better-plotted story than the last season. Same strengths as before too: cool visuals/vibe/ideas even if they don't cohere. Decent series finale if it doesn't get another season. Lisa Joy is trying to push for the next one being the last tho

Vinnie, Tuesday, 30 August 2022 05:36 (three months ago) link

I liked how the end of this season went full anime. It got so bad that it wrapped around to good again.

This season, the characters repeated a few old catchphrases but otherwise everyone was playing a new character.
