This movie starred Kate Capshaw.

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

Not all robots

Not all of them are robots. Some are Androids. Not the same thing (robot is a humanoid machine, android is a synthetic human).

Yes the list gets better after each decade, which shows the advancement in the film industry as well as animation. The upcoming lists would be much more interesting as the Robot movies are a lot in number, and i am eager to see which ones make it to the top 15 slots.

Short circuit had a really nice plot according to 80 s movies and the concept was really nice.

Wall-E always reminds me of Short Circuit, the resemblance is uncanny.

The animation of Wall-E is obviously too good as the technology grew, but the initial credit goes to Short Circuit for coming up with such a cute robot. No matter what people say i will always see Wall-E as the little brother of J5.

I think you missed these two. They are not necessarily among the best of the robotic movies of the 1980s but the Robots were still pretty good considering the 80s. Perhaps they didn't make the top 15 of your list. For me, Arnold takes the cup for the 1980s robots.

I love Flight of the Navigator - now that was a robot with personality! Short Circuit was good too - both are great family movies.

"I'll be back"

For my money, Arnold was the best movie robot ever. His acting was just stiff enough to fit the role, and the Austrian accent added a menacing quality to his words. His line, "I'll be back," is remembered for good reason. With Arnold's delivery, it's still one of the most chillingly funny lines in movie history.
