Dune should have its own thread but since we’re talking about it here I think the original movie needed more editing.

The director David Lynch said he’d never do a film like that again.

If I were describe the movie to someone who had never seen it I’d tell them

“It’s a long, boring pretentious English Space Opera Drama”

Blade Runner is the opposite of what Dune tries to accomplish in science fiction

i've never seen (or read) dune -- it's one of my biggest sci-fi blind spots and i'm v ashamed of myself for never getting around to it. this article made me want to see the movie: https://theoutline.com/post/5333/dune-revival-2018-david-lynch?zd=1&zi=7ydim2r4

two movies for one book seems like a bit much, but at this point i trust that villenueve knows what he's doing. (i'm killfiling anyone who calls him "bro intellectual" again.)

The dune book is great and worth 8 hours of movie. The lynch movie is great but also hillariously campy

The Dune book is in its medium basically what the original Blade Runner is in its.

The book is pretty good. I don't know if it can really be easily broken into two movies that don't just feel like halves.

The movie is not very good. I don't think the issues it has really have much to do with being a David Lynch movie, or being a 'bad' adaptation. It's just your typical badly paced, poorly structured sci-fi / fantasy movie, like almost all of them are.

This is a shame, as someone who doesn't like Villeneuve's films but likes Deakins' work on them. Greig Fraser is shooting it (Zero Dark Thirty, Rogue One, Foxcatcher, Lion)

yeah the sound design in it is somehow just as impressive as the production design and cinematography. at the risk of sounding like a total dweebazoid this film really was an aesthetic marvel even if cumulative effect of that is kind of a hermetically sealed distance, at least compared to how engrossing the original is

There are a few of those revving sounds in the movie. I think there is only on of the soundtrack though:

Good post


Bautista was such a good side character. A lot of Blade Runners strength is it creates the world and you fill in the blanks and I guess the pathos he gave his garlic farmer was really successful in that regard

Like you can just imagine him doing the lonely farmer life day in day out
Like the austere flip side to Harrison living in solitude with his bees and whiskey

I wonder if I can get some frozen wichety grubs at my local ethnic grocery
“The different larvae are said to taste similar, probably because they have similar wood-eating habits. Edible either raw or lightly cooked in hot ashes, they are sought out as a high-protein food by Aboriginal Australians. The raw witchetty grub tastes similar to almonds, and when cooked, the skin becomes crisp like roast chicken, while the inside becomes light yellow, like a fried egg”

They sound better than eating grasshoppers


this vid was only uploaded a couple of months ago, what I love about these vfx breakdowns is that you have the cgi that looks like amazing cgi, the practical effects that look like they could be cgi, and the effects you didn't even realise were effects (as opposed to just being a real set)
