    Beat you to it, lol.

    It looks amazing, though. Epic and grand. I love Denis Villeneuve's films.

    The Spice Must Flow.

    The greatest science fiction novel ever written.

    And...I don't think Zendaya can her way out of a urine soaked paper bag. Not a fan.

    yeah, I hate that we have to wait until December or January for it but hopefully theaters will be back open by then. I want to see this one in IMAX.

    If you are in the Jackson, MS area, they are open and following social distancing guidelines.
    All Aboard and Soft Landings!

    I've only seen a couple but they're doozies. Arrival is phenomenal.

    I haven't read Dune. My mom was a fan, I think, and it always seemed like something I'd dig if I'd just get off my lazy ass and put in the time. (I read so much at work that I have a hard time reading serious literature for pleasure. Or at least that's the lame excuse I keep using for myself.) I may have half seen Lynch's version at some point in college or high school. I remember weirdness and falling asleep.

    Also, hat tip to whoever decided to use some Floyd in the trailer. I almost think that the orchestral remix/redo was unnecessary and that straight Floyd would've more than sufficed, like in the trailer for Roma. Maybe the remaining band members are far enough along to start loosening the strings on movie licensing. Tons of their music would be perfect for scores, as the fangeeks already know from the movies More, La Vallee, and Zabriskie Point and the TV show Legion.

    One of the biggest problems with Lynch's version is trying to compress it into one movie. You had to have read the book(s) to understand what was going on.

    Oh yes...Arrival is phenomenal.

    Sicario
    Enemy
    Blade Runner 2049
    Prisoners
    Incendies

    Everyone one of these is great.

    After Fincher, Villeneuve is one of my favorite (newer) directors working today. I'm confident he can do justice to the scope of Dune.

    Yup.

    The toll gate scene is a master-class in building tension/suspense.

    This is one of his early shorts before he got into feature films, and though while obviously avant-garde, still absolutely shows his potential as a director. I love his aesthetic.

    The thought and mastery that went into just creating the trailer to Dune 2020 with the nod to the original trailer is really impressive.

    Word on the internet is that the movie release has been delayed until Oct. 2021.
