Supercut Of Robots In Movies Spanning Almost 100 Years

February 6, 2015


This is a two-and-a-half minute chronological supercut of the history of robots in movies, from 1921's The Mechanical Man, to 2014's Interstellar. Obviously, the two best are Flight of the Navigator and Batteries Not Included -- no arguing. Still, as interesting as it was to watch, I couldn't help but wish I was watching a supercut of boobs in movies instead. Boobs are like, the opposite of robots: warm, soft, loving, have nipples, easy to fall asleep on, motorboatable, BRRRLABALABABABLABRRRR, mmmmm. Love those things, just wish mine were smaller.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Luke, who wants to see a supercut of spit-takes. Has anybody done that yet? OF COURSE THEY HAVE.

    I didn't see ... Silent Running 1972.

    Great concept... However, this was executed poorly on so many levels.

  • MustacheHam

    Agreed, would love to see a new robut every few seconds not with every blink.

  • Brent Turcotte

    ah good ol screamers ... they fkd shit up

  • Forblat

    Interstellar but not Big Hero 6, A FILM ABOUT ROBOTS

  • Cuckoo

    I expect that might have something to do with Big Hero 6 being an animated film about robots, rather than a live-action film like every other item in the supercut.

  • Apex Female

    then what about wall-e being on the video

  • Deksam

    Metropolis's robot was way way way ahead of it's time!

  • WronglyRabbit

    Even the robot before it, from the Mechanical Man, is way better than most of the 1950's and 1960's robots.

  • CaptainGuntu

    Replicants aren't robots, and neither are androids. Plus, no Huey, Dewey, and Luis???
