It's been a minute since I've seen such unanimous praise, especially for a spaceman movie. Robbie Collins is the critic I tend to agree with the most and his review was essentially :gizz:

I'm probably gonna cry when I eventually see this on a real big screen. Probably because I will be blazed as fuk

Yeah, Variety and Hollywood Reporter both have "It's impressive, buuuuut..." reviews, boiling down to its running out of steam some time before the To Be Continued ending, most of the characters you become invested in being killed off (blame Herbert for that, though) and a feeling that what it's showing has been blunted by imitation in other films, specifically Star Wars.

Take it for what it’s worth, he also was pretty damning of Blade Runner. My sense from the reviews is that it’s the most “Villeneuve” movie yet, and people tend to like all his films or none of them.

Disney probably owns half (or more) of the rags reviewing the movie. Why listen to them at all? They're just gonna say "Well, it's nice but it's no SW"

Yeah I was curious what David Ehrlich thought of his other movies. He said of Arrival that Villeneuve was better at picking existing music (Max Richter) for his films than he was commissioning scores. So I’m not too worried about his review. He doesn’t seem to care much for any of his movies

Halloween is a critical cornerstone of our great country. Stay Spooky

The only reviews that I've seen so far have all been glowing. Granted, that's from the AV Club, Gizmodo, and The Guardian so maybe those are not fancy-pancy reviewers. Sounds to me like the movie is great, and I hope to be able to see it in theaters if it feels safe enough.

3/5 is actually sort or generous when you actually read what he wrote. He called BR2049 “boring” and “turgid”.

I mean, it wouldn't really be true to the original if you didn't miss Duke Leto and crew after Paul loses them, at least on your first viewing of the story.

Here are the two things you need to know about Shang Chi:

1. Shang Chi is a man who does not know who he is. It turns out he is a man with ten rings.
2. The Marvel films are going to find it increasingly difficult to explain why their plots need to happen while they have a bunch of wizards running around who can make portals that let you instantly go anywhere.

e: seriously though, it was... fine.

I don't know how much the movie foreshadows where all this ends up, but lol at seeing the Dune novel as a white savior story when the whole point is that the consequences of people buying into all the (implicitly white, European) messiah poo poo is intergalactic genocide.

poo poo, Herbert hammers home the point that Paul being "one of the good ones" has almost no bearing on how it all plays out except at the margins, the "good guy" white savior imperialist protagonist kills billions anyway. Like we literally read Paul's thoughts where just just says it to the reader.

Paul doesn't save the Fremen, he turns them into shell-shocked drug addicts from his forever wars and destroys their culture at home, all because his dad was on the wrong end of a dynastic beef among the space aristocracy.

Herbert wasn't subtle, he just literally has all the poo poo I said happen in the first 2 books or something. Herbert was 1 step away from

The second book has that character who takes Paul's messianic bs seriously despite having known him back in the 'hood (er, stiech?), and Paul and Alia just laugh at him knowing full well he's going to betray Paul.
