Although it’s hard to say that Dune is your most anticipated film of 2021 when films like Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Spiderman: No Way Home, and The Matrix 4 are all around the corner, but let’s agree that there’s been A LOT of hype for this movie.
I need to disclose that I was not apart of this hype, I had no interest in Dune going into watching it, and if it hadn’t been for my PODCAST, I probably wouldn’t have watched it.
I had never read the books, nor seen the majority of the previous adaptations.
I hate when people beat around the bush – I don’t like this movie.
This is saying a lot… I’m predisposed to like it; I’m a major Star Wars fan, I love most things Sci-Fi, and I can’t name many people in this film who I don’t adore.
The truth is though, I almost hate this movie.
what went wrong?
It’s pretty simple I think.
- The world they build is beautiful.
- The acting is wonderful.
- The action is great.
- If you haven’t read the book, it probably won’t make much sense.
What a completely confusing mess. I don’t typically struggle with this… but even after watching it, I’m not sure I can tell you what this movie is about…
