      Colbert is just such an asshole interviewer nowadays. It was different with Letterman. You could always tell that he actually still enjoyed having the guests on, but for Colbert it seems like it's just business 100% and that he's not invested in the interview at all.

                                        Kevin needs to seriously consider hiring someone to update his wardrobe. He is almost 50. It's fucking embarrassing.

                                                      The location of Luke is "secret plans"? Sure it's a secret, but it's not plans.

Good movies and diversity are not mutually exclusive, and if you really can’t make a good movie without having a diverse cast maybe you’re not as talented a writer as you think you are.

                                                                                            Nice stereotyping there, buddy. Just go ahead and ignore all the male nurses and female construction workers, and the ones that don’t fall within the traditional gender binary.

                                                                                            And no. You didn’t use SJW correctly. Because SJW can’t be used correctly. Because it’s a buzzword used by assholes to describe a fictional boogeyman strawman version of leftism or feminism.

                                                                                            You actually think that movies aren't diverse enough, I mean what would of made you happy with the casting of Ghostbusters, should one have been Asian, an another one Trans.

                                                                                            An the problem is, it's people like you that are ruining movies, because instead of focusing on the story, your just looking at the cast.

                                                                                            I bet you hate construction workers don't you, well let me tell you something, the Men who are employed/chosen, are chosen because of their skills/experience, not because of what is/isn't between their legs, if people like you controlled the working industry, everyone would be out of a job "sorry buddy, too many dicks on site, either get a sex change or fuck off, I hear Nurses are desperate for Men", sorry buddy, the world don't work like that.

(Which wasn’t even really that diverse of a reboot when you think about it, I mean three white girls and one black girl? That’s the exact same race ratio as the original two movies, and despite McKinnon irl being a lesbian her character’s sexuality is never really stated. Really all they did was flip the gender, and they’re all cis too, so it’s not even good enough at being diverse for the “FoRcEd DiVeRsItY” complaints to hold any water. Well, at least it would if the idea of “forced diversity” as a negative thing held any water to begin with, which it doesn’t) Like, it’d still be lazy and kinda cliche, but at least he’d be taking potshots at like, actual reboots.

                                                                                            Like, imagine if Scream had spent its run time lampooning Psycho or Silence of the Lambs while still parading itself as a parody of slasher movies

Frankly I should ask you why you think I should take you seriously but I know your answer will just be more childish manbaby whining that the things you like are growing to include more people that aren’t like you

The actual answer is the lighting in the store was fluorescent and there was no way to rig lights every night in an open store to make it look good on film. If you strip away all the color, the ugly hues and yellow stains turn grey and it looks better.
