Watched Dune with Kev and Jed tonight. The real joy of watching Dune is now I can go read all the Dune hot takes that I’ve been carefully avoiding.
Mostly, I thought it succeeded at what it was trying to do, was quite true to the book, and I enjoyed it in a nostalgic, my-teenage-self-really-loved-this-Chosen-One-narrative kind of way.
I only fell asleep a little near the end.
Note: It was filmed for IMAX, and I think would be pretty spectacular that way. The use of sound throughout impressed me even more than the grand visuals.
