Favourite movie-quote: "That does not compute."

In my opinion - Robby, the robot, was, by far, the most all-round interesting "character"' in this entire flick. He was so logical, so matter-of-fact, so brilliant, and so much a total Road Demon when he got behind the wheel of that spaced-out Land Rover. The way Robby tore across Planet Altair-4's dusty terrain at break-neck speed, well, I figured that he rated being the Star of his very own show just for that performance, alone. I mean it.

C'mon - Let's face it - Without Robby's fantastic resourcefulness and astounding ingenuity none of the inferior humans would've ever been able to survive for even 5 minutes on the uninhabitable terrain of Planet Altair-4.

Robby was everyone's ticket to home-style comfort and high-end survival. And, yet, in typical human fashion, Robby was taken for granted, by one, and all, and, generally, used and treated like a common servant.

I couldn't believe it - The idle, "do-nothing" humans actually had Robby carrying out really base and menial chores like - Washing the dishes, scrubbing out the toilets, and churning out dresses. And if that wasn't degrading enough, while Robby performed these household drudgeries he was decked out, wearing, of all things, an apron, no less. And it was a goddamn frilly one, to boot.

Humiliation of all humiliations - It's a darn good thing for those lazy-bum humans that Robby was a rather naive robot in some ways and not hip to matters along the lines of degradation, otherwise it would've served everyone right if Robby had just blasted every single one of them to smithereens, along with their crusty, old toilet bowls and tuity-fruity aprons. I'm not kidding.

Anyway- With that all said - I still think that Robby, the robot, was the greatest..... (*Watch movie-trailer video-clip*)

There is NO better Sci-Fi Movie! "Invisible Boy" is fun; & the extras were great. All except the "Thin Man" episode (probably because I love the 6 Films - Peter Lawford is no William Powell). A Must Watch!

The planetary shots were incredible. I thought they'd been remastered they were so good. I thought Robby the Robot was one of the things that stood out as out-dated. It moves as if wearing high heels.
