3 issues Westworld may still borrow from the film

Warning: This story carries spoilers from the 1973 Westworld film. if you haven't already considered it, it be accessible for streaming from most digital shops and on Blu-ray/DVD. you are going to additionally discover mild spoilers from the primary season of HBO's Westworld.
The 16-month stay up for Westworld's second season at last ends this Sunday, and the long hole has left me ravenous for more robot-host adventures. So ravenous, I determined to song down a Blu-ray replica of the common 1973 Westworld movie starring Yul Brynner and Richard Benjamin to search for clues that might give a glimpse at what to expect in season 2.
as an instance, while the HBO reveal does not exhibit the existence of different parks except the primary season's finale, the film reveals Delos' Roman World and Medieval World correct away. while the film has a extremely, very distinctive consider than the tv reveal -- my colleague prosperous Trenholm takes a deeper revisit here -- there are some charming ideas that might locate a way into season 2 or beyond.
enhancements
because the Gunslinger (Brynner), chases down tourist Peter Martin (Benjamin), we get a peek into the cowboy's box of view: a distinct-consequences scene advanced for its time that indicates how the robotic is literally designed to tune down its target. through contemporary requirements, the scene looks pretty horrific, but we learn that the eyes themselves are replaceable.
As Dolores (Evan Rachel wood) and Maeve (Thandie Newton) proceed their campaigns for independence on the HBO demonstrate, could either of them get a hardware improve? up to now we now have seen Maeve manipulate Delos personnel into upgrading her very own attributes and rebuilding her to get rid of explosives. might Dolores do the identical? Dolores is additionally referenced as being one of the vital longest-operating hosts in HBO's Westworld. Does which have an impact on how neatly she runs in comparison with more recent fashions?

The Gunslinger receives some upkeep done before he activates human tourists.
Warner Bros. amusement Weapons
both the film and the HBO exhibit reference how weapons that hosts fire at humans are not presupposed to really kill. That definitely alterations with the aid of the conclusion of the season, however the film also explains exactly why in scientific phrases: the guns are designed to prevent killing anybody with a warmth signature, i.e. people.
Now that HBO's Westworld elements robot hosts perfectly able to killing people, what's stopping the hosts from reverse-engineering the weapons so people are unable to shoot the hosts? maybe they just want Bernard (Jeffrey Wright), who lately realized he's a number and not a human, to delivery tweaking some weapons?

or not it's heat that makes it possible for Peter Martin's (Richard Benjamin's) gun to shoot the Gunslinger (Yul Brynner).
Warner Bros. leisure advertising
We comprehend little concerning the world outside of the Delos empire of robot parks on the HBO demonstrate, however the 1973 film leads off with a tacky advertisement asking departing guests how they felt about their pricey consult with to both Westworld, Roman World or Medieval World. They talk about attending to become mayor of Westworld, falling for muscular guys in Roman World and other fantasies they can not believe grew to be true.
So how does a corporation like Delos be capable of lure visitors to its vacation spot? to this point, we have now viewed a glimpse of video promoting that performs inside of Delos headquarters, however is there something basically incorrect with the outside world that makes traveling to the old west so attractive?
And now that the robots are killing humans in a battle for freedom, does their PR branch have a means to spin this in their prefer?

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play?
