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.
