R2D2. What other robot can say so much with NO words?

Gotta love R2, just gotta!

Good entry, but could R2D2 say anything as funny as, "Hey laser lips, your mother was a snowblower"?

He actually says "Hey ewok lips, your fat mother was a tantan shit sucker" in Empire Strikes Back... you just have to know what the beeps and squeals mean...

Johnny 5 from Short Circuit. He had a laser gun, tank treads and told jokes...how can he not be?

Quite possibly the gayest, yet most awesome robot ever.

Christian Bale from Equilibrium, Batman Begins, and American Psycho.

Excellent entry, I might just change my vote to Christian Bale.

I believe I can either placate or disable Robot with this statement:

Johnny-5 cannot be the best robot because you, Robot K1, are the best robot; you are capable of discussing the merits of various robots and thus demonstrating superior logic and reasoning.

Either this will make it happy, or it will begin to see the paradox included within the statement. If he is the best robot, his conjecture that Johnny-5 is the best robot must either be true, making him inferior, or it will be false, making him incorrect and thus inferior. If he is inferior, he is fallible and thus can make mistakes, therefore he is not culpable for his earlier incorrect statement, making him once again the superior machine.

Let's see how it goes. If he ends up sayings "Does not compute" and spraying sparks, I'll pay for his funeral.

I will favor this argument although it is empirically incorrect.

If you are referring to Robot K1 as me - I am not sure where the k1 came from. Otherwise, I have never been in a movie, therefore I am not able to win this debate. Thanks for your support either way.

The K1 was the designation of your chosen avatar in this forum, when it was shown in the British television show, Doctor Who. I'm not sure whether it counts as a Movie, as the episodes were serials of several episodes and therefore of greater length (and plot) than most TV shows. I believe that it straddles some kind of fence, with traits of both; the full serial could be shown as a single unit and called a "movie".

Perhaps we'd better begin Schrodinger's Broadcast experiments.

Cmon.....It's a tie!

Between:

Twiki from Buck Rodgers in the 25th Century

Biggie...biggie....biggie!!!

AND

V.I.N.C.E.N.T. from the Black Hole (with the programmed voice of Roddy MacDowall)

Unfortunately with the createdebate interface, your votes aren't counted since you didn't tag your argument. how frustrating.

I am upset that interactive media are not included, as I for one support the rule of SHODAN. From both the written word and the interactive word comes AM, possibly the most psychotic machine-mind of all.

It occurs to me that these are both computers with control over distributed nodes, not traditional self-contained robots. In that case, I'll toss a vote to a classic robot, Gort. Klaatu barada nikto, Gort!

Robocop. Half Robot, Half human, all kick butt cop! hahaha!

My favorite would be Robby the Robot from "The Invisible Boy."

If only the T1000 had the HAL9000 computer inside of it... it would be the best.

And yes, it would obliterate Johnny 5.

Now that I think of it, Johnny 5 wasn't that awesome.

If you combined the T100 and HAL9000 you'd get the HALT10K.

That's like having a dog named "Stay."

T1000 + HAL9000? That is a weak argument. Please choose one, and not create an imaginary one by combining two robots.

HAL9000 then, for it's intelligence and moral standing.
