“Making films has never just been a job to me, it is my life. I have some interests outside of acting – I sing and I’ve written books, for instance – but acting is what keeps me going, it’s what I do, it gives life purpose… I’m realistic about the amount of work I can get at my age, but I take what I can, even voice-overs and narration. “   (2013)

R.I.P.  Christopher Lee (1922-2015)

“How can we make Hotel sized structures in space
without having to build them?

Answer: pack parachute-cloth bag in the Shuttle bay, fill it with water, let space freeze it.” source

“Are the astronauts going to freeze to death?” somebody asked, laughing, waiting for me to answer the obvious question. He acted like he knew I was ready for the question and that he was my plant in the audience. He was smirking.

“Awh, heck no.

They don’t freeze.

They just put on their igloo suit instead of a space suit,” I retorted, taking my cue.  

“These guys are Ice-tro-nauts.”

After the chuckles quieted down, I added:

“It would be a bit like sitting against your refrigerator, the ice cube part. A little bit of insulation and just like Eskimos, ice on one side,and you, comfortable, on the other.”  (complete description of the presentation,1998)

I don’t think you’re giving us our due credit. Our scientists have done things which nobody’s ever done before…

Mad Max: Fury Road is presented in my town this week, at last, and I saw it yesterday. This is a great ride! This is nice to see an action film with stunts and fights in the best tradition of the 80’s, with some computer effects that complete the scenery, without taking the central place.   

Some comments with spoilers:

The new Max:  As Hardy said in this article,  he didn’t try to imitate Mel Gibson. This Max is a little different. He is really mad (a good idea), more agitated, less cold, a little less cunning, at least in the beginning.  Physically, he is maybe stronger (I have to see the old films again to compare). 

The surprise:  Max is almost a secondary character, an audacious move for a franchise like that.  This is the originality of this fourth film: Max is more an help to Furiosa than a legendary lonely warrior who saves civilians.

Furiosa: She is the star.  In some aspects (her self control,her cold blue gaze and her commanding presence), she is closer to Mel Gibson than Tom Hardy. A great addition to this universe.

Nux: Starts like a typical henchman and becomes progressively a touching ally. Well played by Nicolas Hoult. 

The villains: A big budget version of the usual post-apocalyptic villains with a fabulous lair, bigfoot trucks, and all kind of weird things. They form an interesting (crazy) society. 

Who is the little girl in Max’s head?  I had to read on the net after the film: She’s Max’s daughter in this version, but in the 1979 film, he had a younger son. 

Why Nux needs a blood donor at the beginning, but seems in very good shape for the rest of the film? A possible explanation here.  

If Furiosa managed to become an imperator, why there are no other girl among the warriors? What is the place of the sick girls (they probably exist)  in this society?  I didn’t find an answer yet.  

Saddest moment: the Interceptor is crushed.

Most useful tool: the chain cutter.

George Miller said he has ideas for two sequels:  Fury Road was a very good variation on the familiar themes of the franchise.  For a new film, I would like to see something different. Don’t know exactly how they can do that.

“I soon felt that strange and mysterious sensation which is awakened in the mind when looking down from lofty hilltops, and now I was able to do so without any feeling of nervousness, having fortunately hardened myself to that kind of sublime contemplation. I wholly forgot who I was, and where I was. I became intoxicated with a sense of lofty sublimity, without thought of the abysses into which my daring was soon about to plunge me.”

The Shrinking “Eye”

We are all familiar with the striking red eye-shaped spot on Jupiter. The planet wrapped in a dense atmosphere, where this pattern, this Great Red Spot is thought to be formed by a giant hurricane occurring on its surface. The storm has been observed for over 300 years with no signs of disappearing.

However, this “eye” is shrinking. In a comparison of images taken by Hubble from 1995 to 2014, we can see that the spot gets smaller as photos become more recent.

It is likely that the storm creating the eye pattern is weakening. However, the reason for this is unclear, so it is difficult to predict whether it will return to its original size, or disappear entirely.

I guess we shall have to wait and see, but at least for now it is still a visible beauty spot.
