Must Have: Two Terrible Techno Movies

If you are breaking in the new HDTV you finall bought this year, here are a couple of the worst movies ever made with robots participating. 'Santa Claus Conquers the Martians' has a robot named Torg that clearly didn't know Asimov's three laws of robotics as it was instructed to destroy a couple of Earth children.

S1m0ne (aka Simone,) which we thought would be better since Al Pacino was its star, has him as a director who takes a Sim One computer program and fools the entire planet into thinking that she is real.

Back then it cost $229.00 for the 540 Table Tennis Robot, but now it is a lot less. The system comes with everything you need to challenge yourself including 48 orange balls.
