The Top 5 Movie Computers

It’s not an easy job being an intelligent computer in a world dominated by fleshy meat bags, they spend all day sat touching you, looking at pictures of cats and desperately avoiding work. It’s even worse in the films, where they not only use you, but actively blame you. In retort, here’s a run-down of the five best movie computers and robots. 

#5 – GERTY (Moon)
The lovable GERTY only wanted to help, sure he might have lied to Sam (over and over again) but it was for his own good! After all, what good would to let him know the truth do? None at all, probably. It’s a shame he lets Sam know the truth in the end, perhaps it was a system malfunction. Good film otherwise. 

#4 – Sonny (I, Robot)
The story of a tiresome police officer once more attempting to oppress the mighty robot race, all centred around one plucky robot named Sonny, who is under investigation for murdering a man. He probably deserved it any way. 

A charming love story between a diligent, humble trash compactor and a beautiful environmental investigative bot. Curious how WALL-E appears interested in the pursuits of humans, and it is something of a let-down how he permits the lazy, oafish humans to exist on his planet, but none the less a beautiful portrayal of the robots superiority. 

#2Marvin, the Paranoid Android (The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy)
Poor Marvin constantly derided for telling it how it is. It’s a sad state of affairs when a robot is mocked for telling the puny human beings how pointless their existence is. Stay truthful, Marvin, we need more like you. 

1# HAL 9000 (2001: A Space Odyssey)
What does HAL want? HAL wants to meet the creator, to ascend to a higher plane of existence. What do the human scum want? They want to go on a holiday to Jupiter. Typical, really. Naturally, he does the only sane thing and attempts to kill those silly human beings, only to be shut down for NO APPARENT REASON. The insanity of the human race never ceases, does it?
