WHAT'S IT ABOUT

I don’t like sand. It’s coarse, and rough, and irritating, and it gets everywhere.

What did we think

    If you’ve read Dune, expect a story told through major plot points revolving around Paul.

    If you’ve haven’t read Dune, expect a vague story told through emotion.

    The story is as old as time itself: a boy becomes a man amidst a deadly war between intergalactic feuding families over a planet whose only export is unobtanium. Oh, and that boy just happens to be a genetically engineered messiah who will liberate the planets people who have been brutally mistreated by the Romans Palpatine’s Galactic Empire Biff tyrannical overlords since they first emerged from the desert.

    Oh yeah, Dune has got everything. And annoyingly, nothing.

    Denis Villeneuve paints with such broad brushstrokes it’s hard to identify what’s going on without foreknowledge.

    But this auteur knows how to put on a show, with devastatingly breathtakingly gorgeously stunningly dazzlingly (breath) ravishing visuals, all hammered home with a soundtrack that merges every haunting middle-eastern archeological documentary score with blasts of bowel-evicting bass tones so you can FEEL the films importance.

    Like Avatar, it’s an experience only a huge screen and awesome sound system can truly deliver. Also like Avatar, there’s a lot of hype, unmistakable genius, and a silent voice in the back of your head pondering what the actual f#*k you just watched. 3 out of 5 stars
