Forget the movie, “Chappie”… Here’s my top 10 movies about Robots…

The movie “Chappie” comes out this weekend and honestly, I’m not that excited about the movie, it doesn’t look good to me. There are other movies about robots out there and better ones too!

Here is a top ten list of Robot movies:

  • Terminator 1 & 2: I love all the “Terminator” movies but the first two will always be the best ones. Both of them are classics.
  • Robocop (1987): The original Robocop with Peter Weller is a classic robot movie. The original is one of my favorites of all time!
  • Short Circuit (1986): A classic film starring Steve Guttenburg and Ally Sheedy. Remember this movie yeah?
  • Forbidden Planet (1956): Can’t forget this sci-fi classic!
  • Artificial Intelligence: Haley Joel Osment and Steven Spielberg. Great film.
  • Metropolis (1927): Silent movies maybe boring to you but this is another one of my favorite sci fi films. This film is a masterpiece.
  • Cyborg: Another good 80’s sci-fi action adventure starring Jean Claude Van Damme. This one is streamable for Netflix if you wanna check it out.
  • Prometheus: The Ridley Scott directed Alien prequel is about David the android. I thought this was a beautiful film and looking forward to the sequel.
  • Blade Runner: This movie is about Rick Deckard trying to track down four robots so this movie counts.
  • Interstellar : Yes, the Christopher Nolan sci-fi epic has a robot in it and it’s name is TARS. It’s the coolest robot, in my opinion.



Will Sigourney Weaver reprise her role as Ripley for Neil Blomkamp produced “Alien” film???

20th Century Fox has officially closed a deal with “District 9” and “Chappie” director Neill Blomkamp to develop the next “Alien” film. Blomkamp is not set to direct, he’s just the producer. Fox is still making the “Prometheus” sequel with Ridley Scott but it is not yet known if Scott will come back to direct the next “Alien” movie.


It is not yet known whether or not Ripley will be in the next movie but Sigourney Weaver says she’s open to reprising her role that made her famous if Blomkamp will be directing it:


It is also not yet known if Blomkamp’s “Alien” movie will be a continuation from the earlier series or will it be another re-boot? I hope this isn’t another reboot and I’m hoping this will be an “Alien 5” continuing the story after “Alien: Resurrection”. We’ll have to wait and see.

I’m a huge fan of the Alien franchise. Love all 4 movies. I hope Sigourney reprises her role as Ripley ’cause I won’t see it if she doesn’t return.

I’ll always be a huge fan of the first two Alien flicks. 3 and 4 were good but 1 and 2 were the best.
