In Memory of the Queen of Soul
World-famous singer Aretha Franklin has passed away at the age of 76. Her gospel-roots and R&B-style combined to create the most electric performances of the 1960s and beyond. Early on a DJ dubbed her the "Queen of Soul" and the moniker perfectly described both the woman and her career. Aretha was the first woman inducted into the Rock and Rock Hall of Fame in 1987. She earned 18 Grammy Awards and sold over 75 million records worldwide. She was listed #9 on Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest Artists list. Among her other honors included a Grammy Legend Award, a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, the National Medal of Arts, the Presidential Medal of Freedom and she was a Kennedy Center Honoree.

Road Trip! 1980+ Edition
You get to tag along a road trip with one of the following groups - which one do you choose? Not (necessarily) the best or your favorite movie - it's the group you'd most like to hang out a few days on their road trip. Inspired by http://www.imdb.com/list/-sZYHX7NdC8/ You get to (roughly) experience what they experienced in the movie (for better or worse). To keep it to a reasonable number of items, I am applying the following constraints: * There are at least two "central" characters but no more than three people already on the road trip, you are the 3rd (or 4th, * The movie is about an era that is 1980s or more recent. * The main characters spend a fair amount of time in a vehicle. * Are live action and not science fiction/fantasy (not animated or puppets) Because the list is limited to 35 items, there are valid entries that would probably not be plausible choices for anyone (e.g. they're basically awful or horrific experiences), so I've roughly chosen the more popular entries by moviemeter.

Most Unexpected Sequel
Sometimes the decisions of the production companies are odd. For example, why make a sequel to Highlander (1986) while the whole point of the original movie was "There can be only one"? Who had the idea to make a prequel to Cruel Intentions (1999) while it was a transposition from the 18th century to the 90s of Choderlos de Laclos's Dangerous Liaisons? Why make a sequel to Dumb and Dumber (1994) without Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels and the Farrelly brothers? Anyway, from this list of unlikely sequels, which one is for you the most unexpected? Not the best or the worst, just the most... unexpected. Poll here! Discuss here!
