    Dune isn't released in NZ till December 2nd. Then they wonder why people pirate films.

    I enjoyed Dune a lot, but it got a little baggy towards the end, probably could have lost 15-20 minutes without hurting the narrative.

    Fun fact about Dune: The ‘Dune’ Screenplay Was Written in MS-DOS

    He's refreshingly honest about his motives to do so:

    Roth writes everything using the 30-year-old software (Movie Master, Hel). “I work on an old computer program that’s not in existence anymore,” Roth said in an interview in 2014. “It’s half superstition and half fear of change.” Roth wrote the screenplay for Dune in 2018 and explained he was still using Movie Master on a Barstool Sports podcast in 2020. That means Dune was written in an MS-DOS program.

    Finally got to see it in a cinema.
    I deliberately avoiding all trailers and articles etc...

    Somehow I missed the "part one" bit.

    While watching it I was really enjoying it but as the movie progressed I started noticing lots of long lingering shots and repeated shots. I think the most blatant was the inside of the ornithopter during the harvester rescue. I was thinking,"you have already shown that shot, why repeat?" So when the end came my initial reaction was "where the hell is the rest of the movie" then I realised that all those lingering and repeating shots were to drag it out.

    I am hoping that when the second one comes along someone will cut the two together. I was so annoyed that I went home and rewatched certain scenes again on streaming sites, then watched the David Lynch one.

    I enjoyed it but even though I avoided the hype it did not live up to it for me.
    I felt that getting rid of the "internal thoughts" voice-over worked well, and was an improvement.
    Rebecca Ferguson acted her heart out, much hand wringing which, while out of character, helped to replace Paul's internal monologue.

    Also going back and rewatching Lynch's version made me realise how white it was. Also boob-plates for the stillsuits.

    Overall I enjoyed it and I look forward to the next one.

    The internal thoughts in the David Lynch Dune felt like lazy stroy telling to be honest. Almost as bad as having a fucking narrator.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    It allows for much more background info though. In the new film, they hardly go into Mentats, Suk doctors, guild navigators, etc.

    And some minor plots have been dumbed down and characters rewritten so that it's easier to show what's going on. Especially Jessica's character is much more inconsistent now since she seems to be the designated "show some emotion so we know what's going on" character in this movie.

    If I've read the books I already know that, if I haven't read the books I probably don't care.

    Exactly this. It was left out, because it honestly didn't improve or affect the story.

    This is a movie based on a book. Not the book turned into a movie.
    Why is it called earth, when it is mostly water???

    We are going to be lucky if we are even going to be able to see it in theaters then. At least in the Auckland. I guess there is also VPN + HBOmax if you want to see it before then.

    While the opening theater box office weekend in the US was good without being outstanding. I have heard the HBOmax views were substantial.

    Easily the worst part of the new film was the opening exposition spill from the narrator(s). Was genuinely worried i was about to sit through a battlefield earth level of shite.

    As a person who has never finished reading Dune, or even bothered watching Dune Lynch all the way through as it was so terrible (but has read the dune wiki ) i enjoyed this film as a film very much. Managed to create an alluring atmosphere and the desert scenes are magical. The world building for the film works, and suggests immense empirical power and scale

    Cinematography is second to none, as ive come to expect from the Big David. Spaceship porn never goes down badly.

    Well casted in the main. Enjoyed the big beefcake lads in their respective roles more than i thought i would, and Jessicca is hot and carries it. Pul plays well too. Wasnt convinced by star wars joker as a Duke.
    Big Bad oil lad was also immense.

    *David Villeneuve horns intensify*

    Felt the pacing was a bit off. Possibly coulda spent more time on the meat and veg of what the fuck was happening and less on sword fights but idk man. Small gripe.

    Soundmix was awful though. What's with all the mumbled dialogue? Am i going deaf lads?

    Pretty much my thoughts on Dune, even down to the awful sound. Given how people gush about IMAX, I think downmixing to anything less than that is just not working for the complexity of the soundtrack of this movie. I was not the only one complaining at my local cinema about how awful the sound was and I saw Shang-Chi in the exact same theatre sitting in the exact same spot.

    TBF i think a lot of cinemas are shit with their sound systems and always go for overly bassy nonsense. Bit like how phone cameras love overexposed mega brightness rather than accurate more muted tones. We humans like the shiny BIG BASS!

    I have seen Dune in a standard chain theatre (6.1 Dolby Digital sound) as well as in Imax. I think that overall the sound mix is fine, but there were a few parts where I could not understand some of the whispered fever dream voices over the WOOOMP WOOMP in the cinema where I had no such problems in the Imax screening, so anything Atmos-like will probably help at home. I can also imagine problems with the scenes taking place in the dark in the desert on poorly calibrated projectors, which are unfortunately quite common these days.

    It was OK watching it at home, but I did have to turn the volume up to 20 while it's normally on 16 on my TV, so it was definitely quieter than other movies. Turned up it was fine, even the louder bits weren't too loud then.

    This was an awesome movie! But I always watch with English subtitles anyway. This is the way.

    Wish the cinema I went to was like that, instead what I got was boosted highs, recessed mids and almost no bass. Kind of like my unequalized headphones at home, homies ensured I got a consistent experience :/

    Had to leave half way through with bleeding eardrums.

    To go back to the sound question.
    I actually wore ear plugs for the movie.
    Maybe the cinema I was in ended turning up the volume to compensate.
    Within the first 5 minutes, the noise volume began to hurt to I popped them in.
