Recommended by Yannis Erripis:

“For those who haven’t seen it, I think it is an excellent view on very interesting and difficult to portray correctly in a movie, subjects, like AI, cyborgs etc. “

Recommended by John Payne:

“While it features machines supporting telepresence (similar to that depicted in Avatar) rather than autonomous robots, the movie Surrogates is one of my favorites, and is lasting proof that Bruce Willis has the capacity to deliver a sensitive performance.”

“One of my favorite movies “Eva” – it really makes you ‘feel so many emotions,’ and think about what we are creating (love the cat! and emotional levels in the home help) and Eva is just magical, as is her ‘creator’.”

Recommended by Jim Haas:

“Bicentennial Man is one of my favorites!”

Recommended by Yannis Erripis:

“Maybe not the best movie, but still quite fun, it has one of the coolest robots in cinema: the deranged (and main villain unsurprisingly..) 4 legged AMEE robot with it’s coaxial drone.”

 

 

IMDB | Buy/Rent

Recommended by Yannis Erripis:

“Again, maybe not the best movie from a cinematic perspective but the design of everything on Tron is simply beautiful (it’s the work of Daniel Simon, he participated in many movies, ex Oblivion). Hardly any deep meanings and ideas, but robot and industrial designers could learn a lot from it.”

Recommended by Yannis Erripis:

“The book is one of my favorites and the movie although much more concentrated and upbeat is a good representation. There are a lot of overly-futuristic references and most importantly Marvin, the paranoid android, a robot that suffers from depression and chronic boredom.”
