A Violent Delight: Reviewing Michael Crichton’s ‘Westworld’ (1973)
  |  @   |  

Recently, we started a new podcast here at Geeks Of Doom called Violent Delights. It follows HBO’s reboot of Westworld, which began airing and streaming on October 2nd, and takes a deep look into the themes and storytelling that take place on the show. We couldn’t possibly hope to understand what Westworld 2016 could become without taking a look back at the original Westworld (1973). Here’s how this 43-year-old iconic film stands up to the scrutiny of fall 2016.

Watch ‘The 33’ Trailer: The Chilean Mining Disaster
  |  @   |  

In the summer of 2010, 33 Chilean miners were trapped underneath 2,300 feet of rock, when the mine they were working in caved in. The real-life event became the subject of international news, as people around the world watched to see the outcome. 69 days later, the 33 members were freed.

News events like these are also good for dramatizations, and come November of this year, we will get to see the big screen adaptation of the event that unfolded before the world’s eyes. The 33 stars Antonio Banderas, Rodrigo Santoro, Juliette Binoche, James Brolin, Lou Diamond Phillips, Bob Gunton, and Gabriel Byrne.
