Short Circuit Sunday (Video)

January 15, 2007 at 8:01 am Leave a comment

Around 8:00 last night I watched Short Circuit.

Newton Crosby invented five army robots that are designed to blow up enemy camps, cars, etc. While NOVA (the place that builds the robots) is showing the robots off to investers, it rains, so they load the robots onto trucks to bring them inside NOVA. The investors go inside to have refreshments as the robots were transported. Number-5 gets struck by lightening and comes ‘alive’. “Number-5 is alive,” Number-5 declares. 

My favorite character from the movie to mimic is a funny guy from India with a heavy accent: “Ohh, this is going to be very messy.”

At the end of the movie, Number-5 changes his name. “Johnny-5…That sounds cool,” he says.

More about the robots in the movie:

Johnny-5 and other robots in the film were real r/c ‘robots.’ But in some of the scenes, they were not. To see how they made the movie, you can get issue 28 of Cinefex.  Johnny-5 has a nice design (done by Syd Mead and Eric Allard) that you can get some ideas from to base your own robots. Lynxmotion (run by Jim Frye) sells a little robotic version of Johnny-5.

Here is a trailer for Short Circuit:
