Poll Results: Which is the Best Robot in Scifi?

If you voted on the Best Robot in Scifi or are just passing by, below you will find the winner. Make sure to leave you comments; whether you agree or disagree.

Rachael Tyrell from Blade RunnerRachaell Tyrell from Blade Runner
Rachael Tyrell from Blade Runner

Results of Best Robot in Scifi poll

1. Rachael – Blade Runner (Movie Blade Runner) played by Sean Young

2. R2D2 – (Movie Star Wars), T000 – (Movie Terminator 2 – Judgement Day) played by Robert Patrick, Ash – (Movie Alien) played by Ian Holm and Roy Batty (Movie Blade Runner) Played by Rutger Hauer, all tie for second.

Interesting facts about Rachael’s part:

Grace Slick was suggested as an actress for the part as Rachael. Dick suggested that the novel’s subplot about Deckard being brought to a phony police station run by androids could be eliminated, and proposed a new scene which would show Deckard making love to Rachael inter-cut with Isidore trying to do the same with Pris and comically failing. He further suggested that Deckard’s estrangement from Rachael following their lovemaking could be shown to aid him in his mission to kill Pris (who, in the novel, looks identical to Rachael).

Rachael’s telephone number is 555-7583 (which seems to me  an awfully short number for the futuristic Los Angeles!)

At some point of the movie, each replicant has a red brightness in their eyes (Rachael in Deckard’s home, Pris in Sebastian’s). Deckard also has the shining in his eyes while talking to Rachael in his house. In July 2000, director Ridley Scott said that Deckard is, in fact, a replicant. Harrison Ford takes issue with this, however. “We had agreed that he definitely was not a replicant,” Ford said. Rutger Hauer’s autobiography expressed some disappointment with the same, because it reduced the final clash between Deckard and Batty from a symbolic “man vs. machine” battle to two replicants fighting.

What is your view? Is Deckard an android?

Interesting facts about R3D2’s part

In the first star Wars movie of 1977, Dan O’Bannon and John C Walsh animated the Death Star schematics seen on the computer screen as R2D2 searches the Death Star’s computer memory. They were influenced by similar sequences they produced for the film Dark Star (1974).

Industrial Automaton built R2D2 in the movie. Industrial Automaton also created the R4-P17 and R5-D4 droids.

Interesting facts about T1000’s part

Robert Patrick mimicked the head movements of the American bald eagle for his role as T-1000.

Interesting facts about Ash’s part

According to Ian Holm, Ash’s head contained spaghetti, cheap caviar and onion rings.

According to Holm, only he knew what would happen in the scene where the alien bursts out of his stomach. The other actors had not rehearsed this with him. The result was a very authentic scream from Lambert (played by Veronica Cartwright)

Interesting facts about Roy Batty’s part

Rutger Hauer came up with many inventive ideas for his characterization, like the moment where he grabs and fondles a dove. He also improvised the now-iconic line “All those moments will be lost in time… like tears in the rain”.

So what did you think about the results? Do you agree with them?
