Late-90s robots in film and TV included a wide range of mechanical and android-like creatures. Humanity was the going theme for non-human contraptions in the 90s. Bicentennial Man showed Robin Williams slowly becoming human, while Star Trek First Contact had Data kissing a female robot.
In one of the dearest movies of the half-decade, The Iron Man becomes a father figure to a lost, preteen boy. In one of the strangest robot movies of the period, Russell Crowe is an evil android getting chased down by Denzel Washington in Virtuocity -- Academy Award-winning actors in their scruffy days.
