If you're looking to sob over some hardware today, might we recommend this handy compendium cataloging some of the best sad robot movie moments? Sometimes (oftentimes), we see a robot character dying, sacrificing itself for the greater good of humanity, a species which it cannot quite understand. Sometimes, in these final moments, the dying character gets as close as it will ever be able to achieving something close to humanity. Occasionally, it's a villain dying, but that doesn't make the moment any less affecting, as we'll discuss. Sometimes, it's an inter-species breakup that gets the tears going, or an appreciation of human mortality. Movie robots are really quite multifaceted and resourceful when it comes to opening up human audience tear ducts.
