For its initial television broadcast, an alternate version of the scene towards the end where Chuck Browning extends his middle finger to Dr. Schneider was shot. Instead of extending his middle finger, Browning performs a sanitized "Italian elbow gesture", where the right hand is placed in the elbow crook of the left arm, then the left arm is raised (fist clenched) in a smooth and continuous motion.

Sure, a tribute to the 70's fashion disaster but still a worthy little thought-provoker in its own right!
I just got thru telling you people to knock off the technological whining about WESTWORLD's lack of new-millennium fx standards (mind you, I gotta wonder about some of them too?) and here you all are, pulling FUTUREWORLD to pieces. These guys at least TRIED something different and didn't simply re-run the original with a few new characters. OK Peter Fonda was never in his dad's image...he never TRIED to be! Henry was an un surpassable one off..and by all accounts was a far better actor than he was a father! Peter gave us Bridget so hell that's a pretty fair contribution. How many of you realise that Blythe Danner is Gwyneth Paltrow's mum?.....which accounts for the latter's total lack of charisma too! I actually LIKED Blythe in this...she was a bit of a go-getter, no damsel in distress, "help me I'm feeble" wimp.... she could dish it out!
Yeah, the low-spot WAS the gratuitous Yul Brynner cameo - it didn't make me throw-up like some of you...it was simply unneccessary! Fonda's reporter with attitude was all that he HAD to do, he wasn't trying to be Jet Li on a mission. The ending? well guys and dolls, I must be the only humanoid who actually liked it - I make no apologies!
The flick rates 6.7 out of 10 in my book.
