Titanic had the old couple dying in their bed together from a completely preventable tragedy that was the result of arrogance and hubris, so it remains pretty relevant today

Four Quadrant is not useless, it's just extremely broad.

Like "do both men AND women enjoy the film?" is real basic stuff

As is "do both kids and adults enjoy it?"

Blade Runner 2049 was great and it made far more money than the original did, adjusted for inflation.

If the studio isn't happy with how much they made on it then that's just a function of how much they spent making and promoting it.

0:14-0:41 jodorowski and lynch did some things
0:42-1:10 actual review (it's beautiful and perfect)
1:11-2:07 plot summary
2:08-6:20 actual review (the script is perfect the visuals are perfect the actors are perfect it's a perfect movie)
6:21-13:00 trailers

very useful
I'm guessing youtube is advantaging videos over 10 minutes or something and look if you don't have much to say why not pad it out with trailers (guessing trailer footage is pre-ok'd with the copyright cops)

I was hoping that (book spoilers) they'd make it clear that the bene gesserit planted the fremen prophecies on arrakis eons ago as part of their spooky plans, and that jessica knows exactly which myth was planted. This is important because I really don't want to see paul end up the way he did in the lynch film, a literal, magical god of prophecy. The fact that paul is Just a Dude and the prophecy is bullshit is fairly central to the whole god drat premise.

I know a lot of people wanted this movie to be made and consider it a success (artistically), but this is worth considering.

Dune has already been adapted once as a movie and once for TV. You could just adapt a different book, or make sometihng original, rather than produce another adaptation of Dune that's awkwardly split in two.
It's impossible to make space scifi that is not derivative of Dune, so you might as well go to the source

I actually really appreciate the 3 hour TV cut for giving us EVEN MORE Herbertian/Lynchian weirdness, but yeah he got screwed over by the studio for that Alan Smithee version. Would have been wild to see a "post-Twin Peaks The Return" Lynch take on Dune though.

Sicario was very good. I read some of the plot for the second one and immediately thought “Well I’m not watching this poo poo for sure.”
There's one scene which almost lives up to the original but otherwise it felt like an early rough draft attempt at a prequel that somehow got turned into a sequel by committee.

Every goddamn time a 'thopter was onscreen I had a huge smile on my face and my eyes would start watering again. I mean, the scale of the space-capable ships also pleased me but not in the same way as the Ornithopters. Honestly, I would probably give this movie 10/10 just on the 'thopters alone but there were other things I did like.
