The idea of a robot was always fascinating to us. The literature discovered it and passed the lesson to the cinema. That’s probably one the reasons there are always new films about them. The last one released, Transformers, isn’t on my “must see” list, but many others are, like Forbidden Planet.
To homage this incredible creation of human mind in the big screen, the TIME made an especial article: 80 Years of Robots in Hollywood. The article shows ten fine examples of known films from the 1920’s to 2000’s, including Metropolis, The Day the Earth Stood Still and Blade Runner.
