Top 10 Best Robot Flicks Of All Time

When it comes to science-fiction films, movies about robots seem to reign supreme. This is because the electronic wonders seem to amaze everyone, from Grandma and Grandpa to your 4-year old sibling. But looking back, which films can be classified as the greatest robot movies ever?

The following list highlights some of the major robotic movies critics and audience members have witnessed throughout time. Arguably people can say that because of technology, the more recent movies are the best. But that isn’t entirely true; the best movie isn’t always about special effects. Instead, that particular movie has to also have a great storyline and an acceptable lasting value.

Cutting to the chase, here are the top 10 best robot flicks of all time.

ugh

that lost in space film shouldn't be on there (then it should be the older one if any) and star wars should come in the top three. A.I should come further down too.

WHAT!?!?! Are you lost in space??? You've forgotten the 2 most important robots of cinematic history that shaped men's idea of the mechanical man for decades! I took up reading scifi at the tender age of 8, and my first novel from science fiction was none other that Asimov's "Foundation" series. That is where my thinking and imagination traveled for some time, and then, wonder of all things magical, there was "Gort" - 10 feet of gleaming robot that had found it's way to earth with affable, pragmatic Klaatu, and my thinking was changed! I cling to this first exposure, much as people think about their first love for most of their adult lives. But, I was again transported along into the universe when, in the very early sixties, I watched on television the 1956 scifi feature, "Forbidden Planet", maybe the first prototype to Lost in Space robot, yes, even the 60's tv series - there were similar ....

Do us all a favor and update the list!! Otherwise - "Gort! Klaatu barado nichto!" And he won't be sparing the planet, he will be frying your behind!!! Ooops! I mean, it will just magically vanish where once there was badonkadonk!! You've been fairly warned .......

Cordially (maybe)
Klaatu III (aka, the Gentle Cyborg)
