|Behold - Paltrow's mom getting with a Robo-Brynner|
Format: Amazon Watch Party

When I was in maybe 8th grade, my brother and I rented the original Westworld, declared it "rad as hell" and pondered renting the 1976 follow-up Futureworld. If a movie about robots going berserk in the old west was cool, wouldn't the follow up be even better - in a sci-fi playland?
Well, I remember us telling my dad we were going to rent Futureworld, and my dad saying "Sometimes sequels aren't as good as the original. Like this one." In retrospect, I realize this means sometime my dad had tried to watch Futureworld.
For Houstonians, this movie provides an extra treat as a bunch of it was filmed around town. Thrill to seeing the underground tram at G. Bush International! Say "isn't that Jones Hall?" as the leads enter Delos. Wonder where they are in the Johnson Space Center for great stretches of the film, and why NASA agreed to this shit!
