Very accurate and thoughtful adaptation of the original works. Still takes a good knowledge to understand some of the finer, glossed over details, but if you're a huge enough sci-fi fan, going in fresh isn't bad. I just had to explain a lot to a friend who was lost on some details.

The costuming, music, set design, worldbuilding and character development in this are fantastic. It's really beautiful to look at and fully engrossing in it's story. While taking on less of the story (to save for a sequel, smart!) it has room to breathe and weight in each action of the movie over its 1984 predecessor which is over-explanatory to the point of being convoluted. and feels nearly rushed even despite its runtime. Too much was going on. This adaptation is still dense, but comprehensible.

Very much looking forward to the sequel and the continued works with the IP in its HBO series.

Beautifully shot, well-acted, great art direction; but less than the sum of its parts. Interesting but never compelling. I had a hard time making a connection with any of the characters, and the actors who most interested in me were barely in the movie.

Incredible adaptation! How Villeneuve took tricky concepts from the book and brought them to life (combat shields, Gom Jabbar scene, sandworms) was awesome! As well as ideas that other films have taken (chosen one, the Voice, a ruthless villain), but put such a unique spin to them! And how he made this visual spectacle while still being grounded with this cast of characters is just phenomenal!

What an incredible adaptation. My only issue was having non of Yueh's backstory. He was just there.

Never read the book, but I played a ton of the RTS computer game back in the day and gained an appreciation of the original movie the more I watched it. There is some great actors acting in both of these. I think I appreciated this movie more seeing the original and being familiar with the plot and characters. I got the same feeling watching this as LOTR Fellowship. This will be better when the entire story is told. Villeneuve is becoming one of my fav directors. Also, visuals and score is amazing in IMAX.

I had to do a lot of soul searching after watching this movie. Haven't read the book, watched the David Lynch movie and hated it so I have a bit of a blindspot when it comes to the source material. While watching Dune (2021), I thought it was pretty much perfect. However, it just ends abruptly without any character arcs or plot points being resolved. The moments that ends the film aren't satisfying in itself.

I agree with a lot of your points. I did find the ending a bit anti-climatic, but I still thought the film was incredible on the whole. I see the ending the same way I view the Fellowship of the Ring's ending, in that when Part 2 comes out it will feel more satisfying (although I know you don't enjoy FOTR). I thought the visuals and direction were stunning.

Now we're into the new year, I can safely say that Dune was the best film of the year by far imo. I can understand not enjoying it, but I was swept up in the score, cinematography, visuals, sound effects and tone of the film. A truly amazing cinema expirence, and a very good 9/10.

I didn't see that many films outside of the big blockbusters, but here's my current top 3 of the year.

1. Dune
2. No Time to Die
3. No Way Home

All three of the films are very good and I could see myself rewatching them a lot in the new year. And No Way Home may even improve on a second watch, although I do strongly stand by my ranking under the top 2 films.

On to 2022!

I saw Belfast and The Mitchells vs the Machines and I think they are both better than NWH. NWH is good, but at this point its just very overrated and too reliant on fan service. It's a fun film, but there are definitely cracks in it.

A masterful film that intrigued me all the way through. I can't wait to see the conclusion.
