Man-vs-Machine

December 17, 2008 at 10:35 pm (Introspective, Technology) (, , )

Ever since the Eagle Eye post I’ve been trying to think of story lines with man and machine (in particular artificial intelligence/robots).

Frankenstein Complex (man makes machine, machine threatens man’s existence)

Terminator

I, Robot

Battlestar Galactica (tagline: Never create what you can’t control)

Bladerunner (could go in the other category . . .)

Matrix

Star Trek – Borg

Eagle Eye

War Games

Tron

2001 Space Odyssey

Asimov (man makes machine, machine helps us discover what it means to be human)

Bicentennial Man

D.A.R.Y.L.

Star Trek – Data

Other (there are some that aren’t man-made)

Transformers

Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

Please let me know if I’m missing any robot movies/TV shows that should be here!

Here are some other lists I’ve found:
