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

It still bugs me that the great secret to breaking Suk School conditioning is... threatening a loved one with torture.

drat now that pisses me off too. I guess I was misremembering like the Suk doctors had to have no living family or something, and the wife was from before he entered the Suk School, but kept imprisoned for years, but after Googling that's not apparently the case... Ah well

Herbert only alluded to the boylust in his novel, whereas Orson Scott Card really developed on the theme. Arthur C Clarke avoided the topic entirely in his writing, not wanting to mix his work and his pleasure

I got to see this on Saturday and I thought it was terrific. It's perfectly cast and the way Villeneuve's crafted the sets and the costumes and everything else just feels right. I'm also pretty cynical about this movie doing anything but losing a fuckload of money and Villeneuve not being able to make any more, which loving sucks.

Chalamet is great and in maybe his best performance since Call Me By Your Name, but to me Rebecca Ferguson was the real star. Everyone else is doing what they can with relatively limited screen time, but Bardem's Stilgar is perfect when he's onscreen and I really appreciated how not-cartoonish and genuinely menacing the Baron is here.

I really hope I'm wrong and people give this one a chance. It's loving stunning in IMAX.

Nice TIFF humblebrag. J/k.

Does Villeneuve hate light and color? Dune looks a lot like Sicario and Blade Runner 2049.

In the same way that Caravaggio hates light and colour.

And back in the 80s and 90s it'd sometimes be half a year. In Denmark we got T2 a full five months after the US release.

By which point, the T1000 as a bad guy was already in the public consciousness, fully ruining the T2 "twist" (which had already been ruined by some of the marketing, the GnR video, and the fact that Robert Patrick looks creepy as poo poo).

A few years ago I forced my girlfriend to a cinema double bill of The Terminator and T2, and she was actually pretty :aaa: at the reveal, which was wild

Neither of them have anything on Heinlein, and the less said about James Joyce the better.

To my knowledge Joyce was just a fart fetishist wifeguy. Not exactly the same thing as Clarke hunting for boys in Sri Lanka, or Asimov harassing everything that moved.

E: also it's more true to say that Asimov kept his creepiness out of his fiction writing only, since he wrote a book called The Sensuous Dirty Old Man :ohno:

Still blows my mind that either or both of these came out during the era depicted in Mad Men.

Yeah but in the culture at the time these were niche products for ur-goons, weirdos, and children. The mainstream was neo-suburbanites getting really excited by a new Dave Brubeck record and ordering a pair of chinos from the Sears catalog

Now thanks to Disney this poo poo is the coin of the cultural realm and you have like... presidential candidates saying Wakanda Forever

hans zimmer is really good at being "inspired" by musical themes from other sources. he's so good at it that he got sued by the estate of gustav holst for a song in the gladiator soundtrack sounding a bit too much like "mars" from the planets. he is also a huge dune nerd so it wouldn't be too surprising if he is familiar with the games

At least Zimmer was intentionally ripping off Mars in a context that made sense (Rome, war, terror), whereas John Williams has just sailed on stealing from Holst for his entire career

I’m 1hr 10min into watching Dune 1984 for the first time and anyone who thinks it’s good much less better than Dune 2021 is high on spice. This movie is trash.

Honestly it looks really cool, but if it wasn't directed by David Lynch it would have no fanboy cachet and would be remembered the same way as like Flash Gordon or Barbarella
