The Terminator, Astro Boy, Bender, Marvin, and More

"All Hail Our Robot Overlords! Sci-Fi’s Best Bots"
Underwire, Wired (January 25, 2011)

"Czech playwright Karel Capek popularized the term robot in the 1921 play R.U.R., spawning a deluge of artificial life forms in popular culture.

"Wired.com assembled this list of androids, cyborgs and other memorable machines that left their indelible imprints on movies and television shows in the ensuing nine decades...."

The list starts with Futurama's Bender, then the things from The Matrix. The list is a pretty broad selection - from Atro Boy to those squishy bots in the Alien films, including the Terminator and Marvin the Paranoid Android from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Poster." Speaking of Marvin, the Lemming thinks he gets some of the best lines in the movie. But that's just one Lemming's opinion.

One more thing - there's a photo or picture with each bot's bio.

The software and science stuff might still be interesting, though. Or not.
The Lemming thinks it's interesting: Your experience may vary.
