List your favorite ROBOT movies
« on: March 23, 2010, 02:27:13 AM »
Hello forum,

The idea is to make a list of the best robot films of all time, it doesn't matter the year, country or language they were made in. Let's try to keep this "non-redundant" we wouldn't want 100 entries saying Terminator 2  :D .

Thanks for participating.

This is the list so far:

I,Robot
2001: A Space Odyssey
Transformers
Wall-E
The Terminator series
Star Wars saga

Virus

Westworld

Batteries not included
Short circuit

Bicentennial man
Artificial Intelligence
Metropolis

Here are a few that I like:

I,Robot
2001: A Space Odyssey
Transformers (first was good, second: plot-less)
Wall-E
The Terminator series

Can we count the Star Wars movies? I mean we cant forget about R2D2, C-3PO, or the droids! =).

Hi,

Nearly the mother of them all (at least in "recent" days):¨
The Day the Earth Stood Still
Regards,
Søren

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?
Please remember...

What about the Sentinals in the Matrix?  Although I actually preferred the humanoid tanks ;D

My personal and all-time favourite are I.Robot, Real Steel and Wall-e. However this list at Ranker pretty much sums up best robot movies ever made.

I found "Robot and Frank" to be interesting.  And, a lot closer to what might come to be.
I get paid to play with robots - can't beat that with a stick.

My favorites are the Drones from the movie Silent Running, and I am fortunate enough to have Dewey (Drone 1)
