Haven't read it, know next to nothing about Dune but I have to say I absolutely loved this. I was completely captivated and wished it could have been 8 hours long.
The direction, the visuals, the world building.. so many things were on point.
For those that aren't a sucker for quality sci-fi I do feel they could find this a little too slow moving as there's an abundance of characters, huge groundwork to be laid and of course it's apparently only the first half of the book which could perhaps leave some viewers feeling unsatisfied. Nevertheless I think most will still enjoy it.
Can't wait for the next one
+ Massive dimensions to highlight the Desert Planet and the Universe around it
+ Epic music / sound supporting the epic scenes
+ Book readers can be proud how the story is presented
+ Excellent use of slow frames and bringing details to the forefront
+ Cast includes multiple actors / actresses who fill the screen
+ Select 3D if possible, it supports the movie and I forgot that I have 3D glasses
Fear is the mind-killer.
I mean, it's not bad, but the story is ultimately a traditional hero's journey with a 'chosen one' and loads of dialogue about coming to terms about one's power and responsibilities. I've seen that before. I've also seen epic vistas accompanied by Hand Zimmer scores. Also, I don't go to the movies in order to wait for the sequel. The 3rd act led to nothing, and I felt quite underwhelmed. Maybe I'm just getting tired of blockbusters.
