    Quoted from Frax:

    Read an article yesterday where DeV pretty much said that all the political stuff is largely missing because he wanted to focus more on the emotional part.
    .......so basically, you shit on the book to make a movie that might have a chance to get a larger audience. Fine, but this movie isn't all that good, IMO. And frankly, at this point, if my kid didn't want to go see it in a theater, and we hadn't already promised to take him......I wouldn't be going. Dune *is* political intrigue and scheming. I was not impressed. Chalamet actually had a few surprising good moments, Drax is still Drax, Aquaman is still Aquaman (or Ronan if you're a SG-1 person).
    I could go on and on and on about things I did not like with this movie. I'd be here for longer than the movie runs. I think the best way I can summarize my feelings is what I told my wife:
    "I didn't have to be convinced that I wanted more from the Lynch movie or the Sci-Fi miniseries. I'm not sure I care if there's any more of this."

    I am late to the party but had to comment.

    You've captured the key thing that made this movie a lot of "meh" for me. Mind you, I am an absolutely fanatical fan of the book to the point where I re-read it at least twice a year. [I don't have any tattoos. However if I ever got one, it would probably be the "only I will remain" line from the litany.]

    Totally agree that Dune IS politics. I basically had to re-explain the significance of everything to my husband after the movie (he hasn't read the book in years). There are other factors that contributed to this being a "meh". But we'd be here all day if I had to list them.

    The movie was beautiful to look at but it was not the Dune I know and love.

    I thought the new movie was quite good. The visuals and special effects were tremendous. The acting was…ok, but much better than almost every Star Wars movie. I thought they did a decent job of addressing the “how do we fit 30 hrs of story into two 2.5 hr movies?” issue. Plot moved along at a decent pace and seemed like a newb would be able to follow the storyline. Lots of Lawrence of Arabia, Blade Runner, and of course, Lynch’s Dune influence is evident and that’s a good thing. Looking forward to part II.

    Agreed. Amazing film.

    I enjoyed Part II a little more despite the obvious departures from the book. I thought the pace of the second movie was better.

    I mean, having a toddler kill the emperor was always dumb to me. I also feel that the Fremen were way too quick to accept Paul as their messiah. I feel some of the changes were not terrible and rather enjoyed them.

    This is a big one. They condensed 3 years of time into 6 months, so it felt a little rushed. I understand why they had to do it for the movie though. And yes other changes I thought were done really well. Overall, I'd say 8/10. It was a feast for the eyes.

    My wife and I really enjoyed it.

    If you can go see it in 70mm, trust me, it’s worth the extra effort!

    I'm excited to get this on 4k bluray. Saw it twice in theaters.

    I really loved it, they've done a great job with both Part 1 and 2 - now, you do have to know what Dune is before you go. But it's well done. I still like the Children of Dune for the soundtrack, have to go back and listen to the soundtrack again for these two.
