WHY THE SPEED LIMIT IN INDIANA IS 60!!!!

Where is it 60? Most highways not in the direct Indianapolis area are 70. And even in Indy, when it's 55, everyone goes 75, so it really doesn't matter.

Why Sony can’t settle on a title for the Sicario sequel. They started with Soldado (which they should’ve kept), changed to Sicario 2: Soldado, and now with the latest trailer they’ve changed it to Sicario: Day of the Soldado, which sounds even more clunky.

Not going to link the trailer since it spoils too much in my opinion.

I still haven't seen Sicario. Had too many people tell me I'd be disappointed by it. I have it - just haven't gotten around to watching it yet.

I think you should check it out. Don’t know if you’ll like it, I do, but the cinematography alone is beautiful.

I had them ranked roughly around the same segment of my top twenty list for 2015. I’d say Brooklyn was better but they’re different films.

I mean straight from a cinematography standpoint.  Brooklyn was my #1 film for 2015.  The only one close to it was Straight Outta Compton.  But I'm trying to gauge the cinematography of Sicario in comparison to Brooklyn since Frank said how good that was.

I haven't seen Brooklyn, but the cinematography in Sicario is about on par with all of Villenueve's films that I've seen.  And everything else about it is far, far worse.

Straight Outta Compton was your #2 of 2015?

And yes, Brooklyn is the better film. Not sure if I would rate the cinematography of that one higher than Sicario. I'd probably pick Sicario. Deakins is just too good.

Dylan should do a Sicario/Blade Runner 2049 double Feature to catch up on Villenueve films before Dune comes out.

I might just try and do that at some point in the near future.

People complaining about Thor: Ragnarok being too silly and disrespecting the source material when the source material is silly and ridiculous to begin with and so is Norse mythology in general.

My complaints aren't that it's too silly.  My complaints are that it's unfunny.

Why these people are so invested in teenagers' lives.
Because the teens in question are famous. The reason for the culture’s fixation on celebrities is a topic for another day.
