The following Blu-ray was provided to me by Warner Brothers for review. Opinions are my own.
One of my favorite films from when I was little was WestWorld. From 1976. It's an odd blend of science fiction, the old west, and horror. Set in an amusement park named Westworld that's populated by Android's. The Android's eventually go nuts and start killing the guests. The old west gunslinger was always a favorite of mine. It spawned a sequel and a shirt lived television series. In 2016 it was relaunched as an HBO series.
The series revolves around the theme park know as WestWorld. It's a park ran by, and featuring android hosts. The park is designed for the filthy rich to live out their fantasy's, no matter what they may be. From simple fun, to murder and other depravities everything is allowed.
The Android's in Westworld are advanced and have developed artificial intelligence, which in turn gives then a type of moral compass. They are even programed to have memories. They feel love and emotion they way a human would
The first season revolves around Delores (played by Evan Rachel Wood), one of the hosts who discovers her memories have been changes and are not in fact real. She becomes intertwined with a new host named Teddy Flood (played by James Marsden) who used to be involved with Delores years ago. At the center is the mysterious Man In Black who does not take kindly to the hosts of the park and is searching for "The Maze"
A thought provoking show to say the least. A definite must watch for fans of science fiction as well as fans of Shakespeare, just watch and you will get the latter reference. It. The first season has just to home video and is loaded with these special features
