Best cinematic robot

For me there can be only one.

Not an obvious choice, but makes me laugh hysterically for some reason.

Not as good as the TV version Marvin though

I'd vote for the Terminator if cyborgs count ????

Cinematic? Not telly otherwise yes.
Take your pick....

Below are the names of all the characters featured in ‘Where’s WALL-E?’, including where they originate and the details of their first appearance. Some have made cameos elsewhere
(such as Robby the Robot) but only the original appearance is counted here:

You rule out that great moment of philosophy then?

No, wonderful moment of cinema. The tears in the rain speech:

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

Just that they were synth's, or replicants, and not droids.

Maria from Fritz Lang's Metropolis, the first great cinematic maschinenmensch. The transformation scene is still a great special effect, even 91 years later.

But I'd still do Darryl Hannah.
