Good selection Mark. As always, here’s some older recommendations from me:
The first Alien film – Ash is one of the creepiest robots ever in a film.
Robocop – half human but still a robot. Clue’s in the name.
Westworld – Yul Brenner as the Gunslinger
Forbidden Planet (1956) – Robbie the Robot one of the all time greats!
And don’t forget R2D2 and C3PO from Star Wars.
