Saturday Movie: Dune

I watched this one 2 weeks ago and yes it still stays with me. I was a bit afraid, cos the book is great. One of the first English books I ever read, and the movies are...laughable.

But this, the epicness of it all, the beauty, the coldness, the action, betrayal, and that wonderful music that embodied it all.

Great action. Beautiful cinematography, and a lovely calmness to it all, before hell breaks loose.

The only bad part is that arghh, this was movie 1! Damn it, I did not know. The cut the book in half.

Also what is this bullshit about this streaming and cinema in the US? This is a movie for the movie Theatre, I had not been since 2019, but for this I went. At home it will not be the same.


A mythic and emotionally charged hero's journey, "Dune" tells the story of Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet's exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence-a commodity capable of unlocking humanity's greatest potential-only those who can conquer their fear will survive.

  1. WHAT THE HELL!? We don't get this movie until October 22nd! I will be in the theater for this one. Still one of my all time favorite books.

    1. Yay us, yeah, I was there 2 days after the premiere.

      Theater is a MUST

  2. I've never read the book but I watched the movie with Sting in it years ago. Didn't like it or the story. Maybe I'll give this a try.

    1. I tried watching that version again and threw up a bit in my mouth and gave up

  3. I want to watch this one so bad!

  4. I was wondering about this. But wait- they only did half the movie???

  5. I've been jazzed to see it since I saw the trailer. Glad you loved it.

    1. You have not missed much, though the NEW one, that one is a must see

  7. I have been hearing about this one a lot. I am glad it was good. I haven't read the book so I am not sure if I should wait until I read the book.

  8. I honestly don't know a whole lot about the story - book or original movie - but it looks good.

    Not enough to get me to a theatre though lol so I'll watch it on streaming.

    It's a weird choice though because other high profile movies have been in theaters.

    1. Booo streaming, but yes I get it, I was stuck to my computer checking how many bought tickets and in the end it was 20% attendance, and we were no where near anyone

  9. Maybe I should give the new DUNE movie a try...I also loved the book, way back when, and remember the old movie—sort of.
