Media Center>The new Dune 2 trailer may very well be the best trailer for a movie I've ever seen
Fat Elvis 09:08 PM 12-12-2023


I really liked the first installment, and the previous trailers for Dune 2 were good, but my jaw hit the floor watching this one....

I would definitely let Lady Jessica have it. That is a sexy space witch even with all the shit on her face.

Villeneuve has already said he will be satisfied telling Herbert’s message through Messiah. If another director wants to pick up after that it will probably be someone else.

Never read the book. Did see the first movie.This was a fantastic movie. The visuals really send this movie to the must see category.

Saw it in a big theatre with great sound. Well done movie and would recommend even if you don't know shit about Dune.

Waiting until this weekend to check it out. It's an effort to ignore this thread, lol.

I don't blame him. The books get progressively worse after Dune. Herbert hit it out of the park with the first one, but this series ain't Game of Thrones. Dune Messiah was okay, but without giving anything away, the main characters become seriously less relatable and likeable. Children of Dune was a slog, and God Emperor of Dune was awful; so bad, in fact, that I never finished it or bothered to read the fifth and sixth book. I'm told they're better than God Emperor. I don't care.

Going to see Part 2 in about an hour.

Well, I haven't been this thoroughly disappointed in a movie since Avatar. "Lawrence of Arabia of Science Fiction" my ass. Sure, it looked pretty, but it shit all over the book, and it also shit all over the promise of Part 1.

I basically feel like I just paid $40 to sit in a theater for three hours, eat shitty overpriced food and watch the Chiefs lose the Super Bowl.

Messiah was written because of the people that didnít get the message of the first book. It isnít subtle and itís is in your face. I agree with you on the rest of the series.

I think Denis felt like he needed to dumb it down to avoid that same mistake. Which is insulting if being truthful. But I still enjoyed it.

Sadly, that's what I expected your reaction to be.

I'm sorry you've never experienced an adaptation that brought you joy.

Yep. I think the only way I'll ever see it done right is if I do it myself. And that's not going to happen.

Such a wasted opportunity. You had the right director, a great cast (except for Walken, who was both miscast and awful), all the benefits of modern special effects and CGI done to perfection, and they pissed it all away playing games with the story. It just got progressively worse. By the end, it's like they just threw everything in a blender with the lid off, hit puree, scraped the splattered chunks off the walls and pieced them together randomly. So much screen time wasted on the whole ridiculous Chani changes that could have gone into properly developing the story. Fuck. They reduced both her and Jessica to vicious, scheming cunts. I guess the worst thing a woman can do is quietly and faithfully support a man she loves.

Fucking woke Hollywood can rot in the deepest depths of hell. Today may well have been the last time I ever set foot inside a movie theater. They just don't make films for me anymore.

I honestly felt like the editing was an issue, tone changes were not handled great. And wasted real estate on scenes that served little purpose.

However I feel like itís a directors cut away from 10/10

If I saw the first Dune in 1984 would it give away anything for Dune 3 today?

Good luck with that. He doesn't do director's cuts.

It's been decades since I read the book, but it felt like they skipped a ton of shit in this movie. Is that accurate?

Incredible visual movie, but it just felt disjointed from the start.
