So in the spirit of Michael Bay's upcoming film I figured since our previous little debate here fizzled out to a one-sided decision, let's try a new approach.

So, zombies or robots? Go!

How is this even a contest?

What are the robots going to be afraid of; the zombies eating their processing chip?



…how is this even a good movie idea?
Those were my two cents.

It might be interesting if they made the zombies sympathetic characters trying to fight against their much more powerful robot overlords.

I doubt Michael Bay is going to do this, however.

This is like saying “Which is cooler and who would win? A knight in full armour with a shotgun, or a hobo?”

I mean, really? Zombies V Robots? Come on…

I have no idea where to begin with this one, even though such a clash could warrant an entire movie. I was hoping someone could tell me.

It might be interesting if they made the hobo a sympathetic characters trying to fight against his much more powerful knighted overlord.

I'm guessing the person is asking us which one is much more scarier,since how both has the potential to wipe out humanity.

in that case, let's compare how scary they can be.

Robots:
1)Can develop self-awareness and intelligence.
2)by developing the above, they can find way to be self-repairing and also to improve themselves physically.
3)which of course, makes them hard to kill.

Of course, by developing Self-awareness and intelligence, this means that they can be reasoned with. and also each robot may be able to develop their own opinions on things. So you can just find a robot who disagrees with the notion of overthrowing humanity due to it being so illogical, and enlist that robot's help.

Zombies:
1) extremely infectious, and as an result they “breed” faster than rabbits. In fact, they can easily wipe out humanity by infecting others alone. They don't even need to eat humans for that to happen, although that's usually their main goal.

2)depending on which versions, they have a limited lifespan but it takes an awfully long time for their corspe-like bodies to rot… they'd probably have to be literally an skeleton for them to stop moving.

3)they're weak by themselves, but their true strength comes from numbers, where they act like a mindless angry mob tearing down everything in their path to get at delicious, warm, flesh. They're practically unstoppable, and for this reason they all can be hard to kill at once.

Unlike robots, Zombies cannot be reasoned with at all. you can't stop them from attacking them, other than having to put a bullet in their foreheads.

Hmm…. zombies are significantly more scarier in my opinion.

Well the movie is specifically about zombies fighting robots so I kinda got the “Who would win in a fight?” vibe from this question.

In the scary department, zombies tend to win although robots come in close second when they start pulling off stunts like these:

Those were my two cents.

Admittedly, I don't know that much about blog.nl, but it doesn't seem that bad.

Ugghh.. if he wants to make a movie based on the tradpaperback “Zombies vs robots”.. is one of the worst comics i ever read. stupid story and weird ending.
Bay only can improve it. it can't be worser than the TPB.
For me.. he ruined transformers for me. the first movie.. ok. the second.. it is a shameful work. how can that man sleep at night? is he.. uwe boll in disguise?

You underestimate the sheer awfulness of Michael Bay.

I'm pretty sure if it was zombies vs the Transformers the zombies could win, provided they squeezed themselves into the robot's joints which would immobilize the robots by jamming the joint mechanisms with rotten flesh…

That is assuming the zombies have the proclivity to get creative… ;)

I guess so. he ruined transformers 2 for me. *shudders*

Michael Bay. Ruining your childhood both for money and for the kicks.

so is michael bay a zombie or a robot?


see, i think this depends on the advancment of the delvopment of either the zombies or robots and their number, but if we pit average sterotype robot with average sterotype zombie the robot will win.

i think the tricky thing is, for that movie summary, is that the robots aren't just busy with kicking zombie butt, they also have a major handicap in keeping small fleshbag alive- which is the sole motavation for the zombie attacks. zombies simply aren't going to attack robots otherwise

I dunno…
The robots write, act, and direct this crap while zombies pay to go see it.
Seems to me that nobody wins. :)



Sorry. I'm cynical about these movies too.
