Don’t you mean [REDACTED] AND [REDACTED] in Deadpool 2?

Alien3 is a very good sf movie, but an absolutely terrible sequel.
“I’m sorry, but you can’t return utensils.”
Well Amazon has the streaming rights, so that seems a logical home for it.
Did the cheerleading squad think those sorority hazing videos on PornHub were “How To” guides?
