The 50 Best Robot Movies of the Last 100 Years

Gallery-The 50 Best Robot Movies of the Last 100 Years

Take a look at AI machines through the years. When it comes to robots in the movies, we’re all eight-year-olds.

We started the robot movie list with Metropolis and moved all the way to the last couple of years. You’ll see quite a range of robots, from clunky metal machines like Robby the Robot to sentient operating systems in 2001: A Space Odyssey and Her.

This list could be so much longer. In the interest of brevity, we’ve captured franchises in one listing. So, series such as Star Wars, Terminator, Aliens, and Transformers are each listed once.
