Dune Review Coming Later

I have watched Dune, and I have feelings, along with some thoughts and prayers. I’m going to watch this a few more times, and then I’ll let you guys know what’s going on in my head.

I did not see it in the theater, since that simply is not an option for me. I watched it on HBOMax, last night, like a normal person who doesn’t want to interact with strangers in a dark room, and I have to say that while it wasn’t as good as I thought it would be, it wasn’t bad, either. We’ve been living with the idea of watching this movie for over a year, so the hype was immense, because the trailers were awesome.

I paid little attention to most reviews of the movie, but I have heard that most people liked it. They’re not especially loud about it, but they didn’t pan it either, and I have seen a couple of remarks that its better than the 1984 version, which apparently everyone except me still hates. Yes, I think this version is better than that one, but the old one wasn’t THAT bad. I reserve most of my hatred for the television version on the Syfy network, a few years ago.

So give me some time to organize my thoughts and I’ll drop them here by next month. But first, since Dune isnt a Horror movie (although it does contain some horrific moments), I’m not going to focus on it just yet, preferring to only talk about Horror movies and shows this month.

  1. I’m really interested in your thoughts…I never saw the Lynch version – was told it was horrible – so I will be watching it with fresh eyes…the Director makes beautiful films, although I felt Blade Runner 2049 was too “absorbed in its myth” for me…anyway, can’t wait for your review!

    1. Every review of the Lynch version Ive ever seen or read always trashes that film, but then, I really like it, I’m well used to liking things other people hate, and I almost never base my love of something on other people’s feelings about it. I may have to do both a review of the new one, and a comparison of the two in a separate post.
