  1. Never heard of these movies until seeing this review.

    Top 3 funniest Critic comments are:

    This woman’s a toymaker?! She should be on f***ing CSI!

    Did the film just go off its meds or something?

    Never has a battle between a mechanical death machine and a frumpy old fat man seemed so epic.

  2. Then after a short career in the queue area for Star Tours he now spends his days sitting in the raffters of a warehouse at Disney Hollywood Studios (Florida) Right after the special effect water tank they take you inside the warehouse. Just keep looking upwards and you should see him (turned off)

  3. -I like these movies
    -He is a great robot but he is no Wall-E
    -He was hit with a soul it is his power sores
    -A PC is better then a Mac
    -An alternate universe dimension physics are different
    -It is sad to see him die
    -I like the hero song

    The ending is a bit of a cliche

    • – I also like these movies
      – I think there’s room in the universe for Johnny 5 and Wall-E, especially since I still question the “sure I saw Short Circuit but I’m PRETTY SURE it had no influence on me okay well maybe just a little subconsciously but it’s TOTALLY COINCIDENCE that they’re so similar and all”
      – I think there’s room in the universe for PCs and Macs
      – even watching this review, I got a little sad again watching Johnny’s ‘dying’ scenes and got excited at the hero song bit. I was 11 when the movie came out. I was willing and able to believe in a dying, noble, heroic robot. I’m willing to let the 11 year old in me still enjoy those movies.

      – But yes, now that I’m an adult… jesus christ, is Ben Jabituya’s character ever up there with Mickey Rooney for “characters so racist they make any scene they’re in painful to sit through”.

  4. 8:34 hello Zale from M*A*S*H……. i also saw Klinger in another video i wish i could remember which one

  5. So…. Chappie is definitely this movie 😛

  6. Ah, the post-2000s. When literally anything, even things that were only ever considered bad cliches, can be racist.

    Seriously, find other things to label racist if you must. But cliches and tropes are NOT. Just because someone is playing a stereotype, doesn’t make it somehow racist, even if they aren’t from the same ethnic group. If it were, than every stupid cliched faux-English character played by an American is racist. As is anyone ever playing a character with an accent. Australian playing an American? British person playing a Czech? Idris Elba playing anything other than a black British person? What are you, racist??

  7. Remember that episode of Star Trek where Data and Lt. Yar hook up? I wonder if Number 5 is fully functional.
