My Top 15 Robots

I love robots, and especially movie robots. Generally the bigger and stronger the better. And there are quite a few of them. I have 15 groups of robots listed, kind of cheating but otherwise it would probably about 30 of them.

15. Evil Bill and Ted

Showed up in the sequel to excellent adventure, bogus journey. They were originally programmed to destroy the real Bill and Ted. I believe they were reprogrammed or something to be the rocking robots we know.

14. Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow Nazi Robots

They didn't play much of a role in this movie which is why I gave them a low ranking. Otherwise who doesn't love Nazi Robots.

13. MechaGodzilla

I have never watched a Godzilla movie with the exception of the Matthew Broderick one so I don't know much about the robot Godzilla. But I know it's awesome.

12. Lost in Space Robot

Started off as a cool concept in the movie, until it was destroyed by a virtual annoying little kid. Then it was rebuilt as they corny one from the tv show we all know and love by said annoying kid. Again re-progammed for good.

11. Inspector Gadget

Somehow Matthew Broderick gets another mention here as he was inspector gadget in the movie. The movie was better than I expected, but not good when compared with the awesome tv show.

10. U.S. Robotics model NS-5 "Sonny"

I robot had lots of movies which were all kinda cool. The idea that robots can think for themselves and have to set each other free from the tyranny of humans is something that gives me goosebumps.

9. Johnny 5

One of five remote controlled robots made for the military. This one became self aware after being struck by lightning. Had to escape the military and get beaten up by crooks before finally becoming a citizen.

8. Alien - Androids Ash/Bishop/Call

Same generic android all hated by Sigorney Weaver. Ash was cool because it malfunctioned and tried to get the whole crew killed. Call-Winona Rider was dumb cause she was whiny and wanted to save everyone.

7. Futurama - Bender Bending Rodríguez

We all love Bender, usually trying to screw everyone but once in awhile saves everyone and always funny.

6. Robocop - ED-209

Probably the worse design for a robot. It was pretty much walking guns. Sounds good in theory except it couldn't descend stairs.

5. X-Men - Sentinels

I love the sentinels. The reason they only get fif is because the third X-Men movie ruined the possibility of them thus teasing me forever.

4. Matrix - Agent Smith/Sentinels

Agent Smith rocked. He was the baddest agent and I even liked the ability to clone himself. It got weird though when he was able to go into a real body and stab Keanu Reeves eyes out. The Sentinels here look like little squids.

3. Terminators - T-1,000,000 T-X T-800 T-1,000

In every movie there are bigger and badder robots. Generally a good thing. Nothing will beat a liquid moving terminator though in my mind.

2. Star Wars Robots - Droideka Destroyers/General Grevious/R2-D2

C-3P0 was just a translator, R2 flew planes and opened doors and the regular robots got destroyed way too easy. The destroyers are what really does it here. That and the jedi robot Greivous.

1. Transformers Devastator/Megatron/Optimus Prime

How can you go wrong with an all robot race that transforms? Don't ask me how they transformed into cars and planes on their own alien home world cause I don't understand. Megatron was awesome as a gun, not so much as a plane/tank in the movie. And Devastator is my favorite either as the green one or the movie one.
