Just watched first episode of HBO’s Westworld. What a disaster. Pretentious as all get out. Preposterous as a toad sitting on a mushroom quoting Shakespeare. Boring, confusing and ridiculous.
The action set piece in the middle of the story featured an orchestrated version of the Stones’ Paint It Black that was so loud it almost drowned out all the gunshot sound effects!!! HBOhad a huge flop with Vinyl and hopes it’s found something to replace Game of Thrones when it shuts down . This aint it.
Seems lately nobody knows how to do Western/Sci Fi mashups anymore. Cowboys and Aliens was the latest big screen failure. West World is headed for Boot Hill pronto.
