Very glad to see that my favorite, Twiki from Buck Rogers, just barely made the cut at #48. It's good to see Dr. Theopolis again. ;-)
Box from Logan's Run also made it.
The 50 best movie robots - Times Online: "We selected the fifty most memorable robots in film and rated them in four different categories:
Plausibility (meaning how likely it would be that, with advances on currently existing technology, such a device could be built)
Coolness (just how well designed, shiny or generally well-appointed the robot appeared to be)
Dangerousness (scoring not only on built-in weaponry, but the robot's eagerness to use it)
Comedy Value (how effective the robot is at providing light relief in the film in which it appears)" http://entertainment.timesonline.co....cle2133609.ece
1. A robot must not harm, or through inactivity allow to come to harm, a human being.
2. A robot must obey all commands given to it by a human being except when these conflict with the first law.
3. A robot must preserve itself at all times unless by doing so it contradicts the first two laws.
Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.
~ Winston Churchill ~ ...Rich Wagner
4. a robot must upon detection of any one or more of three specific news-unworthy and dysfunctional "celebrities" (<- clearly a misnomer) escort them to the appropriate behavioral-corrections institution.
What, no Bender! I demand a recount...
...oh wait, he's from a tv series, not a movie.

I started reading that list the other day and then immediately stopped when I saw that Bicentennial Man made the list.
Great point re: Bender.
Wow, didn't think C3PO would be so far down on the list.
And what about this one...?
No other robot has the "virgin alarm" feature!
Shades of Joan Rivers, it's Dot Matrix. I love it.
