Robot Monster News

The Apocalipstix

This week's Gorillas Riding Dinosaurs column is a review of a comic about a post-apocalyptic girl-band that fights mutants and giant ants. It could be the most perfect comic I've read this year.

Monsters vs. Aliens: the TV series?

Well, there's a pilot coming anyway. I must be living right.

The Top 85 Robot Movies

The Only Good Movies Blog has a list of the Top Robot Movies of All Time. They're listed in categories (Scary Robot Movies, Funny Robot Movies, Bad Robot Movies, etc), which is a far more useful system than a subjective quality ranking, though they seem to be ranked by quality within each category. Maybe. That's never really explained.

My big gripe about the list has to do with the descriptions of each film not always saying anything about the robots in them. The entry for The Day the Earth Stood Still, for example, says nothing about Gort, and none of the four Star Wars entries mention droids at all.

Still, it's an interesting list and I've now got lots of new films to add to my Netflix queue.
