"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).

At least last night's ep was super entertaining. Thought the Clementine fight at the beginning was pretty cool, though I'll admit to still being confused as to what exactly the Dolores/Musashi is supposed to be accomplishing.

soaring skrrrtpeggios (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Monday, 27 April 2020 14:38 (two years ago) link

Also why Musashi's old friend there that ended up beheading him said Delores was doing his image a disservice or whatever. Because really, she's so far removed from any personal motivation. Gotta have a badass line to reintroduce a character to the audience but otherwise I was all "what does she care?" Showrunners forgot this scene was way more complicated than the typical good guys slaughtering bad guys scenario maybe.

Evan, Monday, 27 April 2020 15:11 (two years ago) link

I think maybe the Nolan scripting issue is not explicitly reminding the audience of the plot twist.

All you have to know is that the Dolores that is currently Charlotte Hale has flipped, and has now leaked information on Musashi-Dolores, to Maeve’s team

there’s probably a really dumb essay to be written about the mind-body problem and how Maeve’s group are essentialists about the physical form and the Charlotte/Dolores character is fumbling through that idea

mh, Monday, 27 April 2020 15:18 (two years ago) link

Oh I get what happened with Charlotte flipping, but I have no idea how Musashi-Dolores was working towards main Dolores' goal. Did I miss some exposition about his moves?

soaring skrrrtpeggios (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Monday, 27 April 2020 15:25 (two years ago) link

Fashion aside: I'd wear Delores's transforming dress if I had the body for it. Inspired by Hussein Chalayan (2013) or perhaps by way of Evan Hirsch (2019).

I do not know who shared this video to give them credit or know where it came from but what I do know is that I love this dress and @evanrachelwood works the hell out of it ✨#Westworld pic.twitter.com/hsfO1u8kZI

Still watching and just about enjoying. The human characters in this have never been westworld's strong point and this season has just reaffirmed that, can there be anyone in the entire world that cares about Caleb?? This season has really soured me on maeve and at this point I'm generally satisfied with Dolores being awesome each week. Bernhard still the absolute yawniest worst.

oscar bravo, Monday, 27 April 2020 20:38 (two years ago) link

Isn’t the entire point that no one has cared about Caleb as a person?

I'm still enjoying this show as pulp cyberpunk, which is all it ever was anyway!

Dan I., Friday, 1 May 2020 17:20 (two years ago) link

Seems like they had pretty good ingredients for this season, but somehow managed it terribly unexciting. I mean, there was cloned androids with fake identities, family drama, betrayals, crazy god-like AIs, revolutions, the apocalypse... But mostly it just boiled to two or three people having portentous discussions in empty spaces, repeating the same stuff about free will vs. determinism again and again. Was it really necessary to stretch all this to eight episodes when it could've been done in three?

Basically the only exciting thing in the finale was the cliffhanger scene promising a full host-human war, but that was already implied by the previous season's cliffhanger, and the only thing this season changed is that we found out Dolores didn't want a war after all, and instead the instigator is... another Dolores. So yeah, was it really worth a whole season to get here?

Tuomas, Monday, 4 May 2020 18:44 (two years ago) link

"but somehow managed to make it terribly unexciting"

Tuomas, Monday, 4 May 2020 18:45 (two years ago) link

And I get it that they wanted to make a point that collecting behavioural data on a massive level and using it to predict and manipulate the future actions of people makes them just as much puppets as the hosts were, and that's why Dolores sympathised with humans and wanted to set them free like she did with the hosts at the end of season 1... The first three episodes or so, where they introduced those points and showed how the future world runs were genuinely interesting, but then they just kept hammering those points in again and again for the rest of the season, and it got so boring,

Tuomas, Monday, 4 May 2020 19:58 (two years ago) link

There might be a war but it wouldn't be host-human! The entire point of the finale is that Dolores decided she wants a full world of coexistence

so there could be multiple factions, but the main thing now is Caleb/Maeve/maybe Bernard looking for that world where hosts and humans live together and whatever the hell the Hale one wants, which is probably bad

mh, Tuesday, 5 May 2020 01:21 (two years ago) link

tbf William wanted war but he's the third faction at this point and he got clipped by Halores

mh, Tuesday, 5 May 2020 01:22 (two years ago) link

I was talking specifically about what the Tessa Thompson version of Dolores wants, which was implied to be something other than peaceful coexistence. Why else would she have built a host version of the Man in Black version of William?

Tuomas, Tuesday, 5 May 2020 06:15 (two years ago) link

It appears there does still manage to be some extinction level event, or at least massive depopulation, because no matter how remote that desert motel was, presumably someone would have eventually grokked an inactive host sitting in the middle of one of their rooms during the, presumably, years or decades it took for Bernarnold to get coated in dust.

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

Guayaquil (eephus!), Tuesday, 29 December 2020 04:00 (one year ago) link

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.

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

I stand by this judgment as an explanation of why I sat through all of the dire s3 and will do it again for s4
