Haha, Zippy, I dare to say, NO! Some Bond women were brunettes, especially in the later series. I'm thinking of Halle Berry and Eva Green. Barbara Bach also was a hot brunette Bond girl during the Roger Moore era. But I suppose I digress! We were talking about fembots here. ;)
Of course this film, and many other of Robin William's works, came up during our family conversation last night. So sad.
Didn't do well at the box office but I think everyone expected it to be a laff-riot robot movie and were stunned to find out it wasn't.
In general, I thought it was a very intelligent movie that raised good questions about the deep future of robots in our society.
Yes, Iron Giant...another great film!
Great list! I don't recognize many of those robots, though. I guess I didn't see many movies during the 90's! There was not too much time in between soccer games, science fairs, history days, and Scout campouts!
Thinking of a bit more polite robots, I think Weebo from Flubber should have been in the list. It would have made the list more polite and cuter. It was not a complete robot but the idea was quite nice. I don't know about you but i really liked Weebo.
We know that the inclusion of Robin Williams on the front page was coincidental, since this article appeared 12 hours before the news about him was released. How sad. I enjoyed his work. He will be missed.
It's funny how most of the bots portrayed in films during this time are mainly menacing, with a few exceptions. Then of course there are the Fembots! I forgot about them, but how could I? They provided a lot of humor in the Austin Powers series...as a brunette, I think it would have been nice if these devastatingly attractive female robots weren't just blondes!
The first Tacoma Narrows Bridge was a Washington State suspension bridge that opened in 1940 and spanned the Tacoma Narrows strait of Puget Sound between Tacoma and the Kitsap Peninsula. It opened to traffic on July 1, 1940, and dramatically collapsed into Puget Sound on November 7, just four months after it opened.
Noting that we now live in an era of “confusion and ill-conceived stuff,” Ammunition design studio founder Robert Brunner, speaking at Gigaom Roadmap, said that by adding connectivity to everything and its mother, we aren't necessarily doing ourselves any favors, with many ‘things’ just fine in their unconnected state.
