The AI’s Have Left The Westworld Building
March 15th was a hugely exciting evening for fans of sci-fi specials such as Westworld. OG’s will remember the original classic film featuring the late great Yul Brynner. Screened in 1973, Yul Brynner’s performance as a robot was outstanding. I was lucky enough to actually meet the legend in person as a teenager, which is why I cannot discuss Westworld without tipping the hat to his legacy of art.
Westworld season 3 launched on SKY with an epic episode set in the real world. The AI’s have left the compound and want to become gods in the real world. Creators of the perfect human experience without the need to be human. Step aside Jason, Krueger, Myers or Ghostface. Dolores has taken front and centre as far as scariest on-screen characters are concerned. If she gets her own way, humanity will be history and a new species will reign supreme on the planet.
