Michael Fassbender plays a replicant in Ridley Scott's Prometheus.

By | September 22nd, 2014|

Just the other night I watched 3 Ninjas Kick Back on Netflix. I haven’t seen it since the mid 90s. It’s a ridiculously fun movie. But one scene — that never stuck out to me in childhood — caught me by surprise.
