Robots are fascinating because, especially in human form – for stronger effect empathy, are able to do what we do just fantasy. A robot is a potential “any” of the washing, the complex entities like androids, these artificial constructs is entered in the category of those “compensation” cultural products.
10. Star Wars
R2-D2 from Star Wars saga, though it does not seem too great, let’s not forget that look somewhat ridiculous – as a kind of robot companion – was selected for this all for several reasons. First we must respect this big screen. Truly, R2-D2 is a veteran of film. Then the robot is loyal and is skilled in almost every technical field.
Bishop from Aliens and Alien 3, just like “old” R2-D2, was too present in the Alien franchise to be forgotten. Moreover, an android with brief bursts of humanity but true – not important whether scheduled or not – can not leave us cold. I will not tell that Mr. Bishop makes brilliant films with aliens, because everyone is aware of this film’s plot, but I will mention that this Android, thanks to Lance Henriksen interpretation combines well undeniable essence of “artificial intelligence” with some profoundly subtle human events.
Gigolo Joe from AI, primarily fascinated by the tragedy of his existence. Maybe you’ll complain, that I have not chose David, the robot after puberty, which from time to time and can squeeze out some empathetic tears. David is a character completely “gray” does not offer anything but gestures – expressive, it is true – of Haley Joel Osment. Instead Jude Law’s character is more complex, has a multi-valent behavior is slick.
07. The Iron Giant
The Iron Giant just fascinated by extreme contrast that robotics is the whole being alien. The first huge, and very capable of making an irremediable havoc among poor people, with all their sophisticated weaponry. But is innocent. A giant who wants to play. It sounds ridiculous, but so it is.
Wall-E came as a small animated bomb and delivered us a robot that you can not upset. Otherwise you can not describe this innocent machine. Robots have humanized the public to empathize with them. But Wall-E is humanized so that you will come to take him in arms.
05. I, Robot
Sonny from I, Robot, forgiven my expression, a “cool” robot. Its design is very good humanoid, we are shocked by the facts of the excellent “physical”, and let ourselves be seduced by the curious intellect, and free of prejudice does not do human things, well, is robot, but do not have any brains or those implemented in “A.I.”).
T-800 from Terminator movies is the opposite of Sonny. At least T-800 from the first film of the famous franchise. The first impression is that of a killing machine almost unstoppable. It is the only impression. Because it really is a killer robot. Makes the strongest impression it leaves the flame, with a human face on the half destroyed, to reveal his exo-skeleton. Whether bad or as good (heroic), which makes fascinating linearity unruffled that is required.
03. The Matrix
Agent Smith from Matrix franchise, is one of the most fascinating evil-characters from the movie history. Very fancy, but very true. Hugo Weaving’s performance is so good that the role of this antivirus-become-virus jumps from the carrier limited on which the prototype was designed.
Hal 9000, from 2001: A Space Odyssey, is the absolute villain. Self-aware artificial intelligence, and then became paranoid killer. A “robot” without shape, only with many red eyes throughout the ship Discovery, with a subtle voice, downright sinister to the end of film (sinister by his inhumanity), Hal 9000 is a “character” so powerful that causes trauma.
01. Blade Runner
Roy Batty from Blade Runner, in my opinion, is most fascinating AI android / creature from S.F. history. This Roy is a tragic anti-hero. Designed to be subject becomes aware of its existence, and which triggers a whole series of acts to which it is responsible, he realizes that he does not have much to live. It was designed for short-live. Becomes angry, hurting, killing. Ultimately, Batty is as possible human in behavior, thinking and emotional responses.
