Juno: South pole of Jupiter, December 11th 2016

This enhanced color view of Jupiter’s south pole was created by citizen scientist Gabriel Fiset using data from the JunoCam instrument on NASA’s Juno spacecraft. Oval storms dot the cloudscape. Approaching the pole, the organized turbulence of Jupiter’s belts and zones fades into clusters of unorganized filamentary structures, streams of air that resemble giant tangled strings.

The image was taken on Dec. 11, 2016 at 9:44 a.m. PST (12:44 p.m. EST), from an altitude of about 32,400 miles (52,200 kilometers) above the planet’s beautiful cloud tops.

I saw Wonder Woman yesterday.  I liked it, with some reservations.  This is a good first film, that opens interesting possibilities.   

Some various comments (no big spoilers, I talk mostly about what we see in the first 20 minutes.  Still, I write this mainly to share with those who have seen the movie) :

Various comments: I like world-building in fiction so this is some things I was thinking during the film:

A)  The  movie reduces the Greek pantheon to two surviving gods: Zeus and Ares.  Seems a wasted opportunity to develop the mythological aspect in the future, but maybe they don’t want to enter a territory already explored with Percy Jackson.  

B) The origins of the Amazons is a little…puzzling.  Zeus created a race of women to protect or guide humanity, but how they were supposed to do that, exactly ?  This backstory was told to Diana when she was young, so could be a simplified version of something more complex.

The origins of the Amazons is different in the comics, from what I read on wikipedia, with various versions through the years.  

C) What the Amazons know of the exterior world ?  And what kind of education Diana received ?  She doesn’t know some basic things about human society (what is a wedding), but she read Plato, knows a lot of languages and various subjects.  It seems that her education was heavily filtered. And curiously, Diana don’t seem to have any curiosity for modern technology.     

D) What the Amazons do most of the time on their island ?  Do they age ? Are they stronger than normal humans or just very well trained ? Not so clear.  

E) What are the powers of Diana ?  What is her resistance to impact ?   She can bleed.  But she fights on a battlefield, wearing a mini-skirt and her legs are not full of scratches…  (Sure, this is a superhero movie, even the grittiest Batman movies are not realistic). The fight scenes  are fun.  But I  would have liked sometimes a little more sense of danger or trouble or effort for Diana.  

D) A personal impression:  the human characters, at some moments, don’t  seem surprised enough by Diana, starting with Trevor on the island.  And the soldiers, on the battlefield, should be more puzzled.  I would have liked to see some Germans with a “what the hell is that ?” expression.  She is a very weird apparition.  And, from what we know, this is a universe where humans don’t know yet other super beings.  The chemistry between Diana and Trevor is good, but, at some moments, I would have liked to know more what Trevor thought about her.

E) Ares is interesting, Doctor Poison is intriguing.  They are not very developed, but that’s O.K. for an origin movie, where there are a lot of new things to present.  

F)  Good points : The general story, some humor in a DCU movie, more character development for Wonder Woman  in one film than for Superman in two movies…   And the message about peace and the consideration for the victims of war : not something new, but welcome in these troubled times.  

H) For the future : Curious to see how Wonder Woman will interact with the other members of the Justice League  and what Batman or Cyborg will think of her magical origins.

I) What I would  like to see (fan fiction): a crossover movie with Marvel where:  Tony Stark goes on Themyscira.  Steve Rogers plays shield-frisbee with Diana.  Diana has a theological dispute with Thor and they fight each other.  And we have the answer to the question: is she worthy to lift the hammer ?

Did you see Wonder Woman ?


I will probably see it.  Curious to see how they will use WW1 and the mythological background of the character. Is it good ?

From the reviews, Wonder Woman is the first good female-led superhero movie (a far better score on RottenTomatoes than all the previous films combined…).
