As a child in a privileged society, it was almost like a necessity for me to go see a movie once in a while. My journey from being a toddler watching an artificial doll like 'barbie' portray almost all human qualities to watching films like 'star wars', 'terminator' and 'doctor who' in my adolescent years where the artificial characters did not have many human qualities had always made me wonder how robots are depicted in movies compared to in real life.
In the films 'star wars', 'terminator' and 'doctor who', a variety of robots and their model are shown, with some robots that are depicted as humans whilst others portraying machinery without coverage (flesh). But throughout films, robots are versatile rather than useless.
Though no specific information was made about the programming of the Daleks and the bb8, the terminators 'Terminator' was programmed to wait until comparable technology existed to be a framework for Skynet (artificial intelligence) and is made up of programming codes
There are many positives and negatives within robots in films. Though the BB8 great speed because of its design, the head can always fall off which could result in some bad repercussions. The Daleks are not flexible in movement but they have the ability to on their creator's command. The terminator, which is is not found in real life, this gives us an idea of what we could aim to (realistic features) in the future. Most robots in films can also kill which can be good for future uses (alien invasions).
Robots in films are highly advanced in films in comparison to real life. Reason being, robots are more advanced than most humans today because they possess mythical powers (lasers and artificial intelligence). They are also hard to kill because they need more than a bullet to their ‘heart’ to destroy them.
Robots in films in comparison to real life are very alike in many ways. (machinery). However, robots in movies are depicted as very advanced, some more advanced in humans, advanced meaning and knowledge.
