Well, RESER was introduced in 1964. That whole 50s-1980 era was when robots took off in pop culture. Robbie the Robot, "Lost In Space", all the cheap sci-fi films, Isaac Asimov's novels, etc.,.

BTW, I'm screening my print now. So far it's not too bad. Because it's a Disney film it's definitely working the father-son-dysfunction angle. The kid playing his kid is like an 11-year-old version of the annoying kid who played little Anakin in "Phantom Menace" (picture that kid with an 11-year-old's annoying smart-ass attitude). Jackman is playing the "likeable rogueish asshole", and you know eventually he and the kid will bond, blah blah blah. Still, compared to a lot of the dreck I've seen lately, it's fairly entertaining and has some nice cinematography so far.
