Must Have: Prometheus Star Android David

While this video clip is a bit eerie, it remains to be seen if the public finds Michael Fassbender's performance in "Prometheus" believable as David. He plays an advanced android that says he understands human emotions although he does not have them.

Both he and costar Noomi Rapace were interviewed recently on Charlie Rose. Fassbender said that he took director Ridley Scott's advice to watch several movies to come up with the character including "Lawrence of Arabia", (hence the hair tribute,) and Dirk Bogart as "The Servant."

Speaking of bot movies, we finally got around to watching The Real Steel. If you can ignore the overly smarmy performance of Dakota Goyo as Max and put up with a plot that is a cross between Rocky, any stereotypical romantic 70's flick (boy gets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back,) and plot number 4 (father and son reunite and make nice) it is still worth catching for the special effects.
