"Westworld" is HBO's new reboot of the 1973 movie directed by the late Michael Crichton. SLC Fanboy Adam Thomas is blown away by the premiere episode, which he feels was superbly directed, scripted, edited, and scored.

The TV show takes the original concept behind "Westworld" a bit further. Instead of a movie about a theme park malfunctioning, the HBO series addresses the ideas of reality versus fantasy, and evolution.

Starring Anthony Hopkins, Jeffrey Wright, Evan Rachael Wood, Thandie Newton, and Ed Harris, "Westworld" takes a closer look at the operations and day-to-day lives of the people who run, and populate, a fictional old west town turned amusement park. Imagine the holodeck from Star Trek: The Next Generation and another Crichton creation- Jurassic Park.

Although the HBO series does not require a background knowledge of the 1973 movie, the movie is a must-see for any sci-fi fan, for the numerous homages and inspirations that came after it.
