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 thought they nailed this scene from the original though...

I thought it was fantastic.

I have a few nits to pick, which is standard for most adaptations. I had one major concern:

I guess I'll still spoiler my reply, although I'm rapidly running out of fucks to give about this overrated turd.

Incredible visual movie, but it just felt disjointed from the start.
The main things that were missed:

This was Avatar in the desert. A beautifully giftwrapped box of shit. Fuck you, Villeneuve.

Felt the first Dune was better and told a better story. I don't have the book to compare it to do I'll leave that to Frazod but this movie felt too much like a set-up. Even knowing there was going to be a part 3, I just didn't feel like the story was moved along well and it wasn't paced right. First one felt slow because they were trying to tell an epic story right. This one felt slow because they knew they had a 3rd movie to do.

Saw this yesterday at the Liberty B&B Screen X. THAT WAS AMAZING. See it that way if possible. The best film Iíve watched in theaters going back 20 years to the LOTR series. It lived up the the hype and then some

What a masterpiece. Wish I had read the source material a long time ago but this film fucking ruled. Will likely see it again soon

I would like to know why I hate Star Wars but I love Dune? People say that Star Wars was inspired by the Dune book.

Because you were exposed to Stars Wars people like Clay your whole life but there wasn't a Dune subculture?

You know that definitely could be it I guess. The special effects I feel like were not good enough to make a movie like the original Star Wars so it just looked and felt way, way too corny for me.

I imagine if I watched 1984 Dune it would be super duper cheese.

I'm sure it sucks. Trying to create great Sci-Fi without the processing power we have this century is a tall task.

Oh look, their ship is just hurdling thru space right now!!

It's kind of like Starship Troopers. I hadn't read the book when I first saw the movie, and despite it being rather silly, I loved it. To this day it's one of my favorites. My friend Russ (who used to post here as KCWolfman) loved the book, and hated the movie the same way I hate every adaption of Dune. I did eventually read the book, and I definitely understand why he feels that way. Paul Verhoeven (who also did Robocop and Total Recall) absolutely raped the source material, far worse than Lynch or Villeneuve did Dune. Thank God I didn't read the book first - I may well have set fire to the theater. :-)

It's the curse of being old, I guess. I predate Star Wars, and remember what science fiction movies were like before that. Even the ones with good stories had usually special effects you could duplicate by hanging toys from strings and setting them on fire. But at this point, pretty much anything you can imagine can be presented on screen like it's real, and it's been that way for decades now. Younger generations just don't get that, and never will. Especially the ones who never read a book that didn't have pictures in it.

"Dune 2(IMAX)": an audiovisual spectacle the likes of which not seen since "1917", featuring an uncompelling pair of leads and a forgettable script
