"Murderous Machinery"

From the Decepticons to The Terminator, my childhood was packed tight with killer robots. But none inspired such fear as The Black Hole's deliciously mean Maximilian. He was big, brown and brutal. Maximilian all but pulverized the cute old B.O.B. robot. And he nearly fried V.I.N.C.E.N.T. before he was finally bested, during their David & Goliath-style battle.

But the rawest crime Maximilian pulled in The Black Hole, hands down, had to be when he used one of his rotating blades to bore a dinner plate-sized hole in Anthony Perkins' chest. It was insanely ultra-violent, especially for a movie with a PG rating! Say what you will about the old Walt Disney sci-fi/fantasy films. They'll always hold a special place in my nerdy heart.
