they should stick one of those on the empty plinth in trafalgar square.


are there any great british robots?


c3-po is kind of british but he's from another planet.


there are a few british robots in comics - robot archie; ro-jaws from robusters (not sure about hammerstein - he seems more along the american model).


oh and of course: boogie boogie boogie

Good call. Glad you put the TV version of Marvin in there rather than the film.

Yes. I was a bit disappointed with how many results I had to wade through before I found the proper Marvin, rather than the shit one from the film. Although the old Marvin had a cameo in the film didn't he?


Anyways, if there's a way to force another robot, and look around you into the post, I'll take it:

I just found this site which has got several Marvin songs. I was only aware of one single before - eighties-tastic.

Did Metal Mickey make a record? It was the eighties - I can hardly imagine that he didn't.

The weird thing is that both robots inspired names of classic British indie/Brit Pop songs: Metal Mickey was a hit by Suede, then Radiohead did Paranoid Android. Spooky.

Earlier on this thread there was some discussion about the Transformers movie or it's first sequel.


Now, I didn't watch the sequel as I thought the first movie was pretty weak. I like to see a special effects spectacle but I managed to resist the Transformers sequel as I was put off by more of the same, and generally I don't like Michael Bay's style of doing movies. I also wasn't convinced by James Cameron's Avatar. I've only seen one movie in 3D that I felt was enhanced by the 3D - Avatar left me generally unmoved.


And yet there's an insane part of me that is considering the possibility of going to watch the latest Transformers movie in 3D this summer - despite the fact that it's Michael Bay directing, despite the fact that the first film wasn't great, despite the fact that I think 3D is a gimmick. What is wrong with me? Or might it be just mad enough to work?

i know what you mean. i started to watch the sequel, because despite michael bay, and despite the lack of plot, watching giant fighting robots changing into things and ting is still pretty cool. so i guess the same rule applies for 3d versions too.


i think it's also true that if you like sci-fi, then you tend to have to get your fix through fairly shit films. i have to put up with rob schneider and the rest of the shit fest that is judge dredd, because i like the abc warrior and the angel boys. i like the middle bit of 2001, and some bits of eps 1-3 of star wars. i'll even watch the chronicles of riddick, because hey, it's space ships and that.

for real. but i thought i'd got over that - when i didn't watch transformers 2 i thought i'd finally matured and no longer needed to watch almost every sci-fi effects film going.


i must have relapsed. i watched the new version of the day the earth stood still on sunday. i knew it would be crap but i had to see what they did with gort in the new version. gort's so cool in the original - surely he would be the one thing that would be good in the sequel. but no, they even balls that up.


incidentally, did you know that there's a new judge dredd movie in the pipeline? no stallone this time so you never know it might turn out all right.


karl urban plays dredd, alex garland may have written the screenplay, and it's directed pete travis - who did vantage point.
