Movie robots fall into one of three categories: the cutesy ones who do repairs (C3PO), the menacing bad guys designed to inflict pain (Mechagodzilla), and the child-like naifs who learn about the wonders and horrors of the world through experience. Angry Nerd explains why Neill Blomkamp’s new sci-fi flick “Chappie” falls into the third group and he breaks down why we need more movies that cast robots as the wide-eyed outsider.
