Top 5 Tuesdays (T5T) Hearts Robots


Robots. They're going to be our masters one day so let's honor them now and put ourselves in a favorable position for when the hammer comes down. Give me your top 5 movies with robots. Here my list, and it's completely random.

1. Robocop Who knew Peter Weller had such identifiable lips.

2. The Iron Giant One of my favorite animated features from Brad Bird.

3. Blade Runner You don't really get the satisfaction of seeing the metal brutes in full glory because of all that stupid skin and veins and stuff.

4. Runaway Maybe it's Gene Simmons, maybe it's Selleck's stash, but I love this movie.

5. Terminator 2 I actually prefer the first one, but I gotta give it up to the special effects here.

#1 begs the question: who has more identifiable lips, Peter Weller or Michael Keaton?

Runaway -- God bless Michael Crichton the director. It's also one of those great early 80s movies where, because it had guns and robots, it HAD to have a topless scene no matter how it figured into the story.

"Rewrite! We need a topless chick in here, I don't care where, just have her wander into the frame and get shot by Gene Simmons."

Making Mr. Right. So horrible but I love it anyway. John Malkovich and Ann Magnuson! Can you imagine what they could have done with a good movie?

That RUNAWAY poster is hilarious, and a good lesson for us all: just because your one-sheet features a robot spider, space-age kevlar and a big-ass Gun That Does Not Exist doesn't mean that your audience will understand. Best to be safe and include "IT IS THE FUTURE" on there as well.

I don't have any robots that others haven't ably mentioned. Just wanted to chime in.

In other robot randomness, the humans are dead.

How to choose a suitable target in cable and the cabal online alz? You should compensate him by giving him some cabal alz. Normal monsters; you have to lure a handful of monsters with cabal gold so that switching between them can be easier. There are many benefits to guild in cabal money. When you buy cabal alz, it is not still deal high amounts of damage.
