Who is your favorite computer voice in a movie? Can't Post

With Logan's Run on Netflix, I rewatched a few scenes and remembered how it seems like one of the better computer voices in a movie: *not* tinny and metallic, which had been the norm (in Twilight Zone and Outer Limits), and somehow flat but with a hint of emotion, such as when she tells Logan "The question has been answered" with a bit of stern irritation in her voice that it's time to move on.

I think a good computer voice doesn't sound like a machine or a person in a can, but it can't have too much personality, or you think it's too obviously a human. Getting it right is not as easy as it seems.

What's your favorite, and why?

I've always loved that voice. And seeing him come to life was wonderful.

Usually Simone only synthesizes Taransky's (Al Pacino's) voice, but then:

"Are you ever going to tell the truth about me, Mr Taransky?"
