I’d heard about The Robot from this movie, but having seen it….wow. Just wow. Mailboxes….of the future! TongoRad Better do as she says, or she’ll have that thing do even more pruning and weeding all over the countryside! Ken Begg Well, she did invade the country most known for its gardening. TongoRad Definitely- the Martians really could’ve used a bit of recon to make their whole plan work. Also- if she had instead chosen a country like Italy I bet they would’ve had more volunteers than her ship could handle, no robot required. roger h Oh Devil Girl, will you be my special angel? Yeah, she could have pick up a whole bunch of guys in front of the Home Depot. P Stroud This may be the only SF movie where the world was saved by alcoholic Englishman. BeckoningChasm Still, if aliens are going to take over the Earth… …now, their lettuce will stay crisper, longer, thanks to Chani! Ericb “This may be the only SF movie where the world was saved by alcoholic Englishman” It wasn’t science and it wasn’t fiction but there was Winston Churchill. David Fullam Oh God yes, Devil Girl. Take me to Mars baby! John M. Hanna Every time I see that thing I want to put a dollar in it and select a Dr Pepper. P Stroud “It wasn’t science and it wasn’t fiction but there was Winston Churchill.” In this case art imitates life, except not very well. roger h ugh, I can see the wires on Devil Girl’s space ship. Ken Begg Well, they had to lower the ship from Mars somehow. Gamera Well, if you had a gut full of vacuum tubes you’d be kinda chunky too. Seems the invention of the microprocesser had a rather slimming effect on robots everywhere. Rock Baker That’s pretty neat! I’ve never seen the lower publicity still before. So the shoulder pad fashions of the 80s were inspired by Martians! That explains a lot! Bruce Probst I’ve not seen the movie in question, but I’m guessing that, like Tom Servo, that robot’s arms are purely decorative.
