'Humor, for one, is in shorter supply on Arrakis than water.'

Thank the Gods for Dennis Villeneuve and the source material. This one sentence describes how damaged modern film making has become. It's like saying Oppenheimer was O.K., but the fart jokes were too few and far between.

It's nice to see a film actually going on-location and using actual sets instead of making everything CGI. Villeneuve always delivers: Sicario, Enemy, Blade Runner2049, Arrival, Dune. Even his earlier films like Incendies and Polytechnique are great.

I've heard there are some major changes from the book which I think had to happen because so much happens in it and some of it doesn't transfer well to the screen.

His films are raising the cinematic bar for sci-fi instead of the watered-down, kiddie crap like Star Wars which isn't even sci-fi.

A laughable, incoherent, awfully paced, and horribly written film manipulated by Dino de Laurentis and directed by Alan Smithee, because Lynch wanted nothing to do with it, that tried to cram everything in 2hrs that bombed at the box office and was universally derided by book fans, critics, and the casual movie goer.

And yet for some reason I enjoyed it.
