Dune

(1/17) > >>

Well….. that was pretty darn good actually. Very respectful to the novel. Reports that it had been made politically correct or “Hollywoodized” are highly exaggerated. Cinematography, how do I put this; fantastic. the cinematography was some of the best I’ve ever seen.

My only concern is that it was much easier to follow for me, who read the book years ago, but my wife and her friend often looked bewildered, though they enjoyed the special effects and all.  So maybe it’s mostly good for the fans? 🤔

What do you think?

I've had a day to process.
I think it looked great, the acting, aside from a few standouts, was weak. Especially Paul and Jessica, who had to carry the second half of the movie, and IMO didn't manage it.

Considering the book is already a leftist fairy tale, it doesn't take too much additional political correctness to push it over the top. Like adding hot sauce to hot wings.

The movie was long but did not feel long to me. I thought it was faithful to the book (though I have not read Dune in years). Looking forward to part 2 and see where they go.

I can't say I remember any leftist propaganda in the book or the film. It's been many years since I read the book though.
