      Robots, this should be a good list. But I look and no. 50 is that oversized Robot from Terminator Salvation. Closed the article, moved onto something else.

      R2D2 at the top. Fair game, TF, fair game.

      You put the Harvester from Terminator Salvation in the list and left out Maximillian from The Black Hole. But I can forgive it for the fact both Roy Batty and R2-D2 are in the top ten...

      Good List. I liked that you had The Iron Giant robot so high. Awesome movie. The top 25 could be rearranged a bit. Some of your rankings were questionable.

      Very interesting list. Some I have TOTALLY forgotten about, and others I wouldn't have included (splitting hairs on the Cyborg thing). It could be that this is not a USA website, but I miss the robot "Robot" from the TV series Lost In Space. Surely HE (or 'it') should have been in the top 50.

      No Twiggy ("Got to save, Buck") from Buck Rogers? What about the Cylons?

      Fun list, and I like the writing. Example, from C3P0: "Pedantic to the point of prissiness, once you remove the circuitry he’s the archetypal dragged-along-for-the-ride comedy robot sidekick." Other candidates: Bicentennial Man and the trash-can-like robot from the old serial "Dr. Satan's Robots."

      The mere fact you put R2D2 at number 1 shows what big nerds you are.

      I'm a bit mystified by the absence of some of the great older 'bots, such as Kronos. (Yeah, I'm an OLD nerd!) I'm irked that so many cartoon/comedic robots were included, too. While technically not a movie 'bot, there WAS a movie version of "Lost In Space," so I think B-9 should've gotten at least an honorable mention. (Or include that monstrosity that passed for him in the film.) In any case, an interesting list. Now it's time to do one for TV shows!

      I always had some same dreams when I was a very little kid, they are all about that a robot was chasing me, and I ran very hard, I climbed a high building, but the robot was getting close, so I jumped off the building, then I waked up. I always remember those dreams, and I thought they were just dreams, but now I know they are not my dreams, they are the truth, human being will be replaced by robots. 'cause The Gods are true, they need robots more than us. We are created like a pig, but they don't need our meat, they need our feelings, emotion, intelligence, etc
