8. The Machines
Film: The Matrix
Their case: Because you've probably forgotten, let me boil the backstory of The Matrix down for you: machines become too smart, so we decide to destroy them. They didn't want to be destroyed, so we blocked the sun to get rid of their power source. They disagreed with this, so a war ensued, which they won. For revenge, they created a perfect utopian society for us, which we then rejected, because we're assholes. So they said "Fine, we'll just make life exactly the same as it was in the year 2000, and you guys will never know the difference."
That sounds kind of...reasonable, right? I mean we did try to destroy their race, and all they did in revenge is try to give us a happy existence, albeit in our minds. They knew humans and robots could never live together peacefully, and did the rational, logical thing. But still, we screwed it up. Rarely in history, have victorious parties been this willing to compromise at the end of war.
