Robots in cinema are awesome. Since most of us were children, we always wanted a cool, nice, tough robot to be our friend, and it never seems to happen. But that is the beauty of the magic of film. In film, robots can be awesome and friendly and cute. The other problem with cinema is that they love to kill things off in the end. It is like a painful lesson of life, squeezed into 90 minutes. Everything you ever love will die. Yet I digress, lest I depress myself and you even more than this list might.
I figure now would be the best time to embrace the idea of "good robots", as it seems that our takeover at the hands of evil ones will be happening at some point in near the future, and when that happens, lists like this will be more positive to us than sad. But for now, while we still love them and they have yet to kill any of our families, this list is awesome (in a sad kind of way).
Pardon me for a moment while I sob for the Iron Giant. If you dig this vid, WatchMojo has more like it over at their YouTube page. Go show them some love.
