Dune
#1
Watched the trailer. Bugger.

Another brilliant sci fi book/series turned into yet another action movie. Because the world so needs yet another action movie.
And they all have American accents on Dune, too - who knew. Rolleyes

Needs more worms. And where are the skin suits?

Exactly - not a worm in sight, although I suppose that sandstorm thingy might have a worm of sorts concealed in it. If that nose breathing thingy was supposed to represent a stihl (sp) suit, then it failed miserably.

But there's one consolation - it cannot possibly be as bad as the earlier version, with Sting. That was truly dire.

That's what my school reports used to often say. Confused

Mind you, I was a bit of a chatterbox. Hard to believe, I know. Rolleyes

The trailer might not be an accurate depiction of the film if Denis Villeneuve's oeuvre is anything to go by. His films are pretty slow moving (Bladerunner 2049) and quite artsy (Arrival), so expect a whole lot of meditative dialogue broken up by the occasional sandworm.

If only I could be bothered to watch the file that definitely isn't Dune on my pc, then I could probably tell you if that was indeed the case. But instead ended up watching Finch for some reason. Tom Hanks as a man alone. What could go wrong? So many things as it turned out. Who needs a plot when you can have a CGI-robot bumbling about doing pratfalls.

  Yeah, me too. Jeez, I really wish the movie industry would just do actual sci fi films without turning them into bloody action movies! Sad

I watched the old one. Long and boring, just like the book.

 I loved the book - must read it again at some point. But the movie version with Sting was just awful.
