“Robots in Hollywood”

I’m a robot fanboy, every time I would see one in my favorite movie and/or television show I would squeal like a little girl and/or a stuck pig.

They just make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, like a bad case of diarrhea and/or that feeling you get when you’re about to score for the first time.

I even love the dance, if wasn't rhythmically challenged I would be showing off my moves on every dance floor I came across, but noooo, I had to be born a honky.

They didn't have to be all robot either, some human parts and/or mannerisms were alright, but only if they were more machine than man, a robotic limb and/or suit wouldn't constitute one being a robot…not hating, just saying.

The robots didn't even have to be all badassy either, they could be a complete wuss and I would still love them like a fat kid loves cake.

Like for example Data from Star Trek, Johnny 5 from Short Circuit and even the most embarrassing one to admit, Vicki (or V.I.C.I.) from Small Wonder.

And of course the dynamic duo of droids, R2-D2 and C3PO, they are like the Skipper and Gilligan of the robotic world.

Now don’t get me wrong, being able to kick buttocks wasn't a bad thing by any means, the more fleshy mofos getting their butts handed to them by the machine the better…rage against the machine my foot.

Like Robocop from his self-titled flick, Mechagodzilla from Japan, and of course the most mechanical ass-kickers The Terminator/ T-1000 from Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

One of my favorite movies as a kid was The Black Hole, and not because it was a particularly good movie, but because it had some really cool robots in it like V.I.N.Cent and Old B.O.B.

But the main reason I loved that movie was because of Maximilian, the original can of whoop ass, no book will ever stop him bitches.

I even loved the cartoon robots, and not only the obvious ones like The Transformers either, I was a fan of Rosie from the Jetsons, Roboto from He-Man and the robotic party animal Bender from Futurama.

I even liked the movie Robots, now if me being in my late 30s and loving an animated kids movie about robots doesn't show you how big of a fan I am of theirs, than I don’t know what will.

Some honorable mentions would be Bishop from Aliens, GlaDOS from the video game Portal and the ever so frantic robot from Lost in Space…danger Will Robinson.

So many kick-ass machines in the world of entertainment, the list can go on and on, but for the sake of time I will forego listing them all, just know that they are out there ready to take over the world.



  1. Let us not forget the semi robots (clones, whatever) in Bladerunner! Also, Will Smith's movie "I, Robot" had to be one of the best concerning robots. Still, I'm a fan of Gort in the original 1951 movie "The Day the Earth Stood Still." And, who could forget the original sexpot robot, Julie Newmar, in the TV show "My Living Doll." (1964-65). Even Austin Powers dealt with some beauties (including Elizabeth Hurley). Good job!

    1. I, Robot was good, and yes, you are right the robots were pretty cool and ass kicking.

      Blade that's what I'm talking about.

  2. Did you know I'm part Robot?

    Loved this.

    1. Which part...**fingers crossed** please say the lady parts?
