On a related note, Variety has reviewed the first half of the episodes and is fairly merciless: "if somebody yells, “Marco!” nobody should feel compelled to answer right away" and Lorenzo Richelmy is"conventionally handsome, is thinly drawn and a bit charisma-challenged."

Apparently, she's announcing more dates later on. I'm just happy that Michigan date isn't at Masonic Temple. What a disaster.
- Called 'Smoke and Shadow'
- Part 1 is out September 23rd 2015 and Part 2 which is out December 16th 2015
- Azula will probably be back
- Iroh will definitely be back.
It will tie into last years free comic book day issue “Rebound” (Which I'm sure you can find online) which was about Mai and The New Ozai Society. Smoke and Shadow will focus on how Zuko deals with The New Ozai Society which is set on getting him off the throne, while Mai leads a rebellion against TheNew Ozai Society.

"I’ve been sober for 24 years now, and one of the best lessons it taught me is to listen. When it comes to people like Rush Limbaugh, or people who might enrage you sometimes, dialogue is the only way. You have to reach out. Whether you make an impact in one year or 30 years, it doesn’t matter. You have to put your foot in the water and start the process. Better to build a bridge than a wall."

The relevant bits summarized:
- Black people have always been qualified, we just now have a better class of white people who recognize this and it all ties back to Obama being elected as the first black president of the United States of America by said group.
- Black people are Tina Turner, white people are Ike...I don't even...
- Lots of black people are raised polite and educated and well-mannered without anyone realizing it until now.

The Trainer says that Justin and his dad have pretty much abandoned the dog.
JB's dad is pissed that the trainer is telling ppl this storyso he's telling people that the trainer actually stole the dog + he's getting cops involved.
Trainer says he's just concerned about the dogs welfare but he doesn't want to get in trouble with the law so if Jeremy wants the dog back he will return it.

The Telegraph: "The film settles into a Forrest Gumpian groove that doesn’t glorify the human spirit so much as sap it ... Jolie’s a fascinating actress, a fascinating star, and now a film director on whom the jury is out, with worried-face."
The Wrap: "The film boasts both sheen and efficiency without always delivering an equivalent emotional impact. It's easier to be awed or impressed by it than moved ... There are powerful moments in “Unbroken,” to be sure, but it also feels like the kind of generically grand-scale movie that five other directors could have made in exactly the same way."
The Guardian: "Though high-minded and well-intentioned – as well as being conceived on an epic scale – there’s something faintly stodgy and safety-first about the endeavour ... Jolie’s stolidly conventional approach to the material hardly freshens it up ... The goodwill she has inside and outside Hollywood may generate some Oscar nominations but, like her first film, the Bosnian war drama In the Land of Blood and Honey, there’s a reined-in, by-the-book quality to much of the film-making that doesn’t exactly add to its impact. Zamperini’s is an inspiring story all right, but in Jolie’s hands it’s all a bit “inspirational” – quote-unquote."
Variety: "It’s an extraordinary story told in dutiful, unexceptional terms, the passionate commitment of all involved rarely achieving gut-level impact ... Zamperini’s post-rescue conversion and his subsequent attempts at a moral reckoning with his captors are dispensed with in the closing titles, leaving you blinking at the unrealized potential of a longer, bolder and more spiritually inquisitive movie than this one."
Indiewire: "Her emerging career behind the camera [has resulted in] a pair of routine but well-intentioned war dramas ... The movie finds Jolie flexing more sentimental muscles, resulting in a classical feel-good wartime excursion. That's just enough to make the movie work in the confines of its formula while laying its limitations bare ... It's hard not to get the feeling that Jolie's become too enamored of her subject to portray him as a human being."
Screen Daily: "Directing her second dramatic feature, Jolie doesn’t vary the pace or tone much during the raft and camp sequences and while she mostly avoids POW movie cliches she doesn’t find much to put in their place to explain Zamperini’s fortitude (early hints that religious faith played a part are not followed up on)."
The Hollywood Reporter: "A great true story is telescoped down to a merely good one in Unbroken. After a dynamite first half-hour, Angelina Jolie's accomplished second outing as a director slowly loses steam ... In the great old studio days of the 1930s, writers, directors and actors knew how to give supporting roles real character and sharp identities within a few seconds; such is emphatically not the case here."

Did your fav movie make the list?
i'm so excited!!
Basically the original Margaery/Tommen scene in Season 4 episode 4 was MUCH MORE overtly sexual and seductive than the scene that was shown on the show. And Natalie was uncomfortable with that and refused to do the orginal much more sexual scene and went out of her way to get the scene changed and be less sexualized and more innocent.
However, season 5 of Game of Thrones will only have more Margaery/Tommen scenes and Natalie says she handled it and sensitively as she could.
The Margaery/Tommen scene that made it into the show was already pretty damn creepy IMO that I gag to think what the original more sexual version scene included that made Natalie so uncomfortable.
