Great clips, Nancy. Thanks. It's amazing how that line has lived on -- it's now 30 years old.

Nobody saw the Disney Channels' Chip Carson in Not quite human?  I think he has a full length movie even.

Yes, Daniyal_Ali, I sweated over which robot movies to include, and Robot Jox and Saturn 3 didn't make the cut.

I'd agree on Saturn 2. Then again, not sure if it just didn't make the top list.

Robot Jox are not robots, they are massive powered exoskeltons.

Same for the Powered Lifter Ripley used in Alien. not a Robot.

 

Not gonna worry about the line between andriod/artificial lifeform and robot.

They were made.

This movie starred Kate Capshaw.

It was released in 1986, about 5 months after the space shuttle Challenger disaster
