Maximillian from "The Black Hole."
In our experiences, top ten lists normally have two flaws: they're poorly formatted for quick reading and they are normally wrong. Just check all the comments of any top ten list, and you'll see lots of other folks think the list is wrong, too.
With our TL;DR Top Ten Lists, we're going to fix both problems... with your help. We're just gonna give you a couple of things on our top ten list (to make it faster to read), and you fill out the rest in the comments below (to make sure the list is accurate). Add to the list, argue with us, argue with each other, but most importantly be nice and have fun.
Today's TL;DR Top Ten List topic is:
Scariest Movie Robots!
- The insect robots from "Runaway." These multi-legged insects could move surprisingly fast when they wanted to, and they could jump pretty far. Also, they had a horrible sting - in the form of a venom-filled syringe. And if that wasn't enough, they were all built by Gene Simmons. Can anything be scarier than that?
- Maximillian from "The Black Hole." Long before General Grievous came on the scene, Maximillian was the robot with the multiple arms who haunted our nightmares. It doesn't hurt that he can sort of fly and two of his hands are very sharp and spin. Max even had enough guts to kill Norman Bates. Dang.
- The Tin Man from "The Wizard of Oz." Imagine you're a woodcutter and you just happen to make a witch mad. She curses your axe and it begins to chop your parts off. Each time it chops a part off, you replace it with a tin prosthetic. In the end, you're all metal and, if not a full robot, at least a cyborg. Of course, this back story is glossed over in the movie, but it's still true. And why do we think the Tin Man is scary? Because the original make up almost killed the original actor (Buddy Ebsen). No other of these robots actually almost killed someone.
And now it's your turn. What do you think numbers 4-10 are? Do you agree with our numbers 1-3?
