Question: I never watched the old Dune movie? Should I watch? How about that TV series?
Also, should I read the book?
Ah, this trailer has me hyped to get into all things Dune.
I just fear we won't get part 2, cause normies have no taste.
The movie is done. It was originally going to be out last year and only delayed due to COVID.Denis Villeneuve was the only director that could pull this movie off. The casting looks great and most of the special effects look great. The worm effect still looks like a work in progress. I’m sure they’ll improve it more until release.
But everyone (who's a fan) is so excited for the movie, so it MUST be the story and how the film has adapted it as faithful as possible, right?
No no, the director is a genius in cinematography and I'm well versed in his work.Villeneuve is to Dune what Peter Jackson was to LOTR. Both grew up loving the book as kids and dreamed of making it into a movie. They showed about 20 mins of footage last night on IMAX and every single detail in this is as impressive as what Jackson did to LOTR.
I'm strictly speaking about the book here, and what about the book and its story that is interesting because the trailer was definitely made for those who have read it - and definitely not very welcoming to those who know nothing of it.
Jihad is gone for the sake of political correctness. Don’t expect those influences.I like the trailer but it feels like they are white washing the arabic-turkish influence the first book has.
I love villeneuve movies but looks-wise it doesnt look like it takes place in a "middle eastern" type of planet.
I don't know. We have to wait and see i guess
Definitely told me nothing of the story, but based off your response it definitely seems like a story that needs to be read and not told in a quick summary on a forum thread on a gaming website.Like how LOTR basically created the modern fantasy genre, Dune did the same for sci-fi (it was released about a decade after LOTR). Most modern sci-fi from Star Wars to Avatar wouldn't exist without Dune and you can see its influence in everything. Best way to describe it is kind of Game of Thrones in the year 10,000 hiding a core messiah story.
Read the book (DO NOT watch the Lynch version if you haven't read the book).
Did they actually film a part 1 without the plan for making part 2? That seems absurd, is that really the case?I'm very worried we won't get a part 2 either, that cast is gonna be hard to reassemble.
But really, a father has to ask the MOTHER if she will protect her own child? Why do writers put this kind of shit on paper?
And sadly, I know the '84 movie so well I need to translate the currently actors for Gurney and Idaho into their '84 counterparts to remember which is which
I'm a fan of Jodorowsky's work, but anyone that's familiar with the first Dune book knows how far removed his adaptation of Dune would've been, beyond recognizability.Yeah I'm also not super impressed. The trailer lacks a distinctive visual style, it seems kind of generic compared to what could have been (Jodorowski's Dune, anyone?)
I read Dune when I was 12 or 14 or something and although I loved it, I remember it being pretty batshit so I thought Jodorowsky's vision was right on the money compared to this somewhat grimdark, desaturated style which seems to lean away from how crazy the Dune universe is. But I guess that's subjective experience for you. I did love the new Blade Runner movie so sure I'll give it a chance.I'm a fan of Jodorowsky's work, but anyone that's familiar with the first Dune book knows how far removed his adaptation of Dune would've been, beyond recognizability.
Awesome documentary though, and thanks to that production we got Alien, The Incal, and many other iconic works of Science Fiction.
On multiple occasions, Villeneuve has gone on record to express his admiration for Dune and the world Herbert weaved. The man is a legit fan.
Nothing wrong with you having reservations mind you, but my excitement (as well as many others) is mainly stemming from the talent involved with this adaption, and their respective track records.
I find it hard to think of a place where to split the book neatly into 2. The only thing that I can think off is to split it where Paul truly becomes Muad'dib but that means the second half would be lacking content. I think the mini series' 3 part split was a better way to go at it.where will it stop for part 1 and start for part 2 you guys reckon?
i couldn't ask this in /tv/ because the damn capcha was messing me up 10 times.
Like I said above, if this is true, that makes this duology front heavy.Based on the script this one ends
when Jessica takes the Water of Life.
