Tonight is the premiere of Westworld on HBO. A remake of the class 1973 movie with Yul Brynner, James Brolin and Richard Benjamin. With a $100 million budget and four decades of technology advances I am sure the effects will be light years ahead of the original.
Ed Harris looks like he is going to be great as the evil android gunslinger.

I cannot wait to check it out.
Here are some images of the original Westworld movie:
One of the best artificial intelligence movies of all time
The first time the tourists run into the gunfighter
This was state of the art back in 1973

A few interesting items we rand across recently at some local yard sale items.
Vacation at North Texas Jellystone Park Burleson, TX
As we had taken a number of trips to and from the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport up and down I35 West we had noticed a large water park on the east side of the highway. At first thought it was just the water park with the slides but upon further review it was discovered there was a lot number tucked away behind the massive water slide. The water park is called Pirates Cove but the rest of that area is called North Texas Jellystone Park
So we booked a stay there for one night and thought we would check it. We decided to stay in one of the premium luxury cottages. The accommodations were quite nice.
