Many films I like have been mentioned. I just recorded Patton & watched it for the first time in many years. I recently saw Run Silent, Run Deep (don't remember if I saw it before). Also The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (which I have seen many times).
I will relate a couple movie experiences. When I was at U-M, I saw Das Boot at MLB. It was winter, and the heaters were seemingly working overtime. After the movie was over, I was hot, sweaty & nervewracked. So that auditorium had the appropriate atmosphere.
When I saw Midway as a boy, the next showing was sold out, so we bought tickets to the following one and saw Bambi in the meantime. Sensurround was used for Midway. We could hear the explosions from the adjacent theater.

Jaime Lannister was 15 when he joined the Kingsguard, the youngest ever to do so. A couple years later, he killed the king. Now he's about 34.

Has anyone else killed a White Walker? And she's the only witness, right?
Wasn't it Sam the Bookish who read in a mouldering tome about the WW's vulnerabiliity to dragonglass? But I'm guessing he needs to be a Maester, because otherwise no one south of the wall will believe him.
Doesn't that takes many years, though? Just how long does the world have? It's not like he can buy a Maester's chain and degree on the internet.

It was Cersei who reestablished the Faith Militant. Stupid brothercousinfucker.

I was looking forward to Margaery's walk of shame. At least the naked part. Though I knew Jaime & the Tyrells were going to intervene.

Sam did take his family's Valyrian steel sword, Heartsbane. Didn't think he had the stones for that.
Not sure he has the strength to wield it, though.

Oh? I thought it was the prophecy told to Cersei when she was a girl.

I think Bran better discover some new power pretty damn quick.

What will he first stumble upon: the Jennings are KGB spies, or who's been drinking his beer?

I remember that ad. Very nice.

I know she's the enemy, but damn, Elizabeth is badass. She went all mama bear and protected her kid from those pervs.
The guy just had to go and pull a knife and blow her cover of not hurting people. Can't wait to see how they deal with the dynamic between her & Paige, for whom there's a whole new level of freaking out.

|1 week 13 hours ago||Howland Reed is Lord of the||
Howland Reed is Lord of the Greywater Watch, which is very swampy. It doesn't produce knights or heavy infantry. Neither is it good terrain for invaders with such. Reed was a friend of Ned Stark, and aided Robb to the extent of making it rough going for any Lannister troops in his territory, so they'd rather go around.

The fire went out when they got near, then came back.

When I saw the subject, I was hoping it meant more athleticism.

I dunno. Can you BBQ something that's so cold? I think they might start to melt then shatter.
|1 week 22 hours ago||The only problem with Tywin||
The only problem with Tywin is that he didn't give much credence to the threat beyond the wall, which I think is really the biggest threat with winter coming.
Probably any southerner would think the same, though. Only the north remembers, but the White Walkers haven't come south in centuries(?), so that they have become merely monsters in tales used to scare the young.
|1 week 1 day ago||I'm not sure Bran is trapped,||
I'm not sure Bran is trapped, but more that he loses himself in the events of the past and so far lacks the will/discipline to pull himself away. The old man warned him about spending too much time in - let's say "otherwhen" - because he could lose himself and not get back.
He's not ready, but he better learn fast.

Well, he's the next "tree hugger," isn't he?

I guess hitting the floor isn't enough? How many times have our players gone for layups, get bodied so they can't land on their feet & draw no call?
I don't watch non-Michigan games. Is this symptomatic of bad college refereeing? Or do we really not get the benefit of the doubt? (It seems we don't compared to the opponent in our games.)

But would Ned? Jon died, so his watch is ended, so hasn't he fulfilled his oath?
