Short Circuit, 1986.
Directed by John Badham.
An experimental military robot becomes sentient after being struck by lightning and befriends a young woman, who attempts to help him from being recaptured by the army.
Let's take a trip back to a simpler, more civilized age - the 1980s, where military robots enjoyed nothing better than settling down in front of the TV to watch old Marx Brothers movies or busting out some John Travolta dance moves to Saturday Night Fever, as opposed to obliterating humanity and taking over the world. Well, that's not quite true of course (one only needs to look at The Terminator for evidence of that), but it's certainly the case when it comes Number 5, the protagonist of director John Badham's (the aforementioned Saturday Night Fever) 1986 smash hit sci-fi comedy Short Circuit, »
