In answer to your question about ridding a worm @52:00 The hooks that you saw Kynes brandishing before she was killed, pry open the skin of the worm exposing its innards to the harsh abrasive sand. A worm will keep the exposed area away from the sand and not submerge, allowing the Freemen to ride them.

I interpreted the “I’ll show you ways of the desert” thing as this: It didn’t happen exactly as Paul saw it, but ultimately Jamis did teach Paul a lesson by challenging him to that duel. He learned a lot about the Fremen culture from Jamis’ challenge.
GalaxyGal040-15 Aylar önce
Yep and even the vision where Paul literally dies in the duel with Jamis shows him something: that his visions are POSSIBILITIES: branching futures, and even that possible future can teach him something about his destiny. He must kill a man (in fact many more than one) to fulfill his destiny

This in one of the two problems with Paul's visions: (1) they can be metaphorical and allusive; (2) they show probabilities and possibilities. What Paul sees are multiple threads and pathways of what might happen. When multiple threads end in the same result (e.g. his death) he can see what is the most probably result of a particular event or decision. Sometimes all the threads come together into one event or one decision and everything after that splits off - and a "nexus" like that is so blinding, it is hard and sometimes impossible to see beyond it.

I think the thing that impressed me the most about this movie over the 80's version, is how they explained so much stuff visually without narration. It's impossible for me to know how effective that was for people who are not familiar. But little things like how the mentants's eyes roll up when they are processing was cool. Also like the fighting scene, not explaining the how shields work, and that Gurney Halleck was serious and stressed just by acting and not exposition. Very well done.

@Colby Boucher Oddly enough I agree completely. I say oddly because I tend to really like slower paced films. Bladerunner 2049 is one of my favourite films ever and I thought the slow pace of it was absolutely perfect. I was afraid that due to the lack of financial success Villeneuve had with 2049 that he’d compromise on his vision for Dune and ramp up the pace. Instead he cut a lot of intriguing sub-plots for time and that somehow made the film feel both slow and rushed simultaneously. I also think the score contributed to the odd pacing by being so thick in the mix it was kind of suffocating, leading to a lack of feeling of space (which I’d have thought you’d want in a movie about a desert planet).

I'm currently reading the book after seeing this movie and being so drawn in. I'm shocked at how much exposition/dialogue/inner monologue that was not in the movie that I read and go "huh, the movie gave me 75% of this just through the acting, expressions, body language and framing alone." The book is for sure filling in gaps here and there and expanding upon certain things, but I'm absolutely shocked at how much of the book I already know. The only other time I've been this impressed with a movie adaptation is the second Hunger Games movie, which was nearly 1:1. This adaptation is not 1:1 but it is phenomenal at conveying the feeling and themes the book tries to get across without having to be a checklist of plot points.

I think if they had just mentioned the machine jihad early on and that they had laws against making thinking machines then the rest would be easier to decipher. You would be able to make the logical leap that they were training humans to do the jobs of computers.

I'm not familiar with the lore but with the cinematography, editing and the direction by Villenueve and the strong acting of the cast, they really did a masterful job. Like early on you know there's no computers in this universe and the one dude's eyes go up to compute something,they might be their versions of computers. There's already tension with Leto's hesistance to sign the decree in the start where he knows there's something up. Really really good movie that makes me want to read the books and lore. Hoping for part 2 and 3 maybe.

"Why can't the shields deflect things that are moving fast or slow?" They can be calibrated to block slow-moving things, but then the wearer suffocates because air can't pass through.

@RolyPoly ships and buildings shields are actually calibrated to block nearly everything exactly because they can have their own environmental control, then the only limiting factor is power source, but then you can just use a lasgun and blow up everything. it actually comes up in the book a couple of times when people use lasguns offensively against shields in a suicide move. another thing that happens in the book is shields that cover only half of the body, since one side is open to allow airflow, the other half can be calibrated to block at much slower speed, becoming nearly impenetrable.

The reason there is little to no use of guns is because the personal sheilds are designed to stop fast moving objects from passing through, rendering bullets obsolete and well, primitive. Slow moving objects however can pass by easily (and allows oxygen to flow by). Laseguns do exist (those lasers that cut through anything), however if the beam of the gun comes in contact with the shield, a chain reaction occurs with an explosion equivalent to a nuclear bomb. Thats why melee weapons are so vital to combat.

@Musiccer Pretty sure lasers in Dune aren't light.
Musiccer 9 aylar önce
I understand the shield in principle. It acts like a Newtonian fluid that hardens when hit hard by a fast moving object but easily penetrated by slower moving projectiles. However, why would the contact of light with the shield cause an atomic blast. Light is not conventional matter and it should just travel right through the shield, or if it doesn’t, it should be reflected or absorbed. But there is nothing that can explode

Such a faithful adaptation. The only thing that doesn't come across yet is how epic the scale of the events unfolding actually is, but that's also part of being the first book. For non-book readers the main thing to understand is that the books take a lot of time to explain the concepts behind how and why things work the way they do in this vision of the far future.

It's fairly faithful to the plot of the book but there are some key omissions. The iconic banquet scene for starters, apparently it was filmed. Kynes here is a black woman, in the book Kynes is a male off worlder. The tent scene is a very important scene in the book where Paul transcends time and space, which was played down in the movie, shame. Stilgar doesn't come into the story that early in the book. The baron doesn't come across nearly as grotesque or intelligent as he is in the books. The entire suspicion of Jessica as the potential collaborator and Leto going along with it is gone. The fear of a trap being set by the Harkonnens is never really explored. Very little of Hawat and Mentat discussion in general. Piter is a non entity in the movie, in the book he is a fascinating character at the Baron's side prior to his death. Not enough in the movie of the baron to be honest. But I think the biggest error was ending the film where it ended. Hurts the pacing and beats of the movie. It should have ended with Leto's death. Also, what's with the bagpipes? That was an error in judgement. That's not to say the movie wasn't an achievement. There is a lot there to appreciate.

I'm always kind of surprised how many people have been saying they love the fourth book. I definitely enjoyed it, but for some reason I thought people were not really a fan of that one. I will say I really, really hope they manage to make a film of it, eventually. We have had screen adaptations of the first three books, but never the fourth one. It would be great if they ended up doing all six. If nothing else, I hope eventually somebody decides to do a proper R-rated premium cable or streaming service television series of the books, Game of Thrones style, with a nice high budget, high production values, great actors, and then like 10 hour-long episodes per book for six seasons. Really do the books justice, with all those nuanced character scenes. A series for people with long attention spans, that trusts its audience and doesn't need to dumb things down.

@God Emperor of Dune yes and no. The biggest problem cinematically of course, is that a large portion of it takes place in Leto's head. This can be mitigated by soliloquies or vision scenes of course but you run the risk of losing the essential fact that this is all about the consequences to the choices Leto 2 has made. What encourages me is the fact that even in this one they are setting a precidence of a series not overly reliant on dialogue. The fact is that by the time they ever get to God Emperor Of Dune Hollywood will probably just be obtaining the proper equipment and artistic tone to do it justice.

The key thing to understand and that I hope the second film makes clear is that Paul is not a hero, he's an antihero. The visions he sees are of multiple possible futures. Jamis giving him advice was from a future where they didn't fight (possibly a future where Jessica wasn't with him). That he sees multiple futures and not just one, makes him fallible and dangerous, particularly once the Jihad is launched in his name, with fanatical legions commiting atrocities trying to avoid a possible future he sees. That's why he's so upset with his mother in the tent scene as he can see this in his visions. Dune is the ultimate critique of the white saviour story. Paul and his mother manipulate the locals and their traditions. To quote: “The bottom line of the Dune trilogy is: beware of heroes. Much better to rely on your own judgment, and your own mistakes. Dune was aimed at this whole idea of the infallible leader because my view of history says that mistakes made by a leader (or made in a leader's name) are amplified by the numbers who follow without question… I am showing you the superhero syndrome and your own participation in it…” - Frank Herbert

@Julio Basically George Lucas read Dune, which is a book about the subversion of the messiah myth, then decided he'd make his own version of it for kids that played the trope straight, and made Star Wars (A New Hope). Now there's no Death Star in Dune or anything like that, but if you want to compare Paul Atreides to somebody in Star Wars, compare him to Luke Skywalker. Except instead of using space magic to win the day, Paul Atreides is cursed by his power, he is tormented by it, and he's left with nothing but choosing the best of a million bad options, surrounded by ultra violent religious fanatics, stuck on a desert planet forever.

@ScarlettMi Read the books. At least the first one. You can always stop reading the first book at the point where the first film ends. That will give you so much more depth and understanding of the universe where all of this is happening. You'll understand the Imperium, the politics of it, the culture, the class system and the futuristic feudal society. You'll have a better understanding of the Bene Gesserit's abilities, including those Jessica taught Paul (which she wasn't really supposed to do, but she knew how dangerous Paul's life might be, and wanted to give him the best possible chance of surviving and thriving). You'll also have a better appreciation for the planet Arrakis, what the ecology is really like, what the history of it is like, and just how important it is to the off-world economy. Best of all, you'll get more great character scenes and get to know some of these characters much better, and what their thoughts are while events and conversations are happening.

Basically Jessica was supposed to have a daughter, that daughter was supposed to marry a Harkonnen heir, ending the feud between the two great houses (and bringing both families under the control of the Bene Gesserit), and then the son from that union was supposed to be the Kwisatz Haderach, the chosen one (who the Bene Gesserit would also control). Jessica loved Duke Leto, and the Duke wanted a son, so Jessica gave him a son (Bene Gesserit can control that). So, instead of the story about the chosen one, a messiah story, we get something else, something chaotic. We get the whirlwind. That's the subversion of the trope. And so much crazy stuff happens once the whirlwind is unleashed.

@Luciano Francesco I feel like people who say that just need to be eased into it. I know people who say that they hate sci-fi, but they love Black Mirror. That's all any good sci-fi ever really is. It's a look at a world or universe that's affected by one or many societal and technological changes and how they affect our humanity. The space ships and lasers are often just window dressing.

@Arthur Bridges I really wish they had spent more time explaining Thufir Hawat, and at least mentioning that Paul had been getting mentat training. The whole plan that Leto and Jessica had for Paul was actually quite incredible, it's such a shame it didn't come to fruition the way they'd hoped. I mean a fucking mentat duke, that knows the Weirding Way, he'd be unstoppable in the Landsraad. And then crazy Bene Gesserit breeding programs and the spice melange and an unfortunate bit of kanly kinda took things off the track. But man, what a power couple Leto and Jessica were. I wish we'd gotten more of their scenes from the book.

@dunerat42 I think that was the only true disappointing thing to me, was that they did not explain who Thufir Hawat and Piter de Vries were, never used the word Mentat, or explain how the reason their eyes rolled in their head at certain moments was because they are literally human computers performing calculations.

× The Sardukar "language" is just a battle language that only they know, so even intercepted communications are useless to an enemy. They ALSO speak the Imperial Common that everyone does, therefore The Voice still works on them. × The Benne Geserit have EXTREME control over their own bodies. They can control any one muscle w/o involving any other (try that), they can isolate poisons inside their own bodies then change them into water at will, they can control IF they get pregnant, AND the sex of the baby. They can look DOWN THEIR ANCESTRAL DNA to get answers from any of their female ancestors. These powers the natives call the Weirding Way, which is mythical/religious/legend.. These allow them EXTREME martial arts prowess, on the verge of magic. They are sworn unto death not to divulge these secrets, so the offer to teach the fremen the weirding way is an unprecedented opportunity for the Fremen warriors. They would NEVER pass that opportunity up, nor allow ANYONE to harm the woman who is teaching them.

Jessica choosing to have a boy fucks with their plans in ways that will likely manifest in the sequel film, but any more detail than that would be spoilers so just keep it in your brain.

I don't know man (and I'm one who usually agrees with Eric on most things when it comes to movies) but this completely blew me away. As someone who has never had any prior exposure to Dune, this film had me gripped the entire way through. It's been a very long time since a film got me invested as much as this one did. Incredibly gorgeous to look at, Hans Zimmer's score was phenomenal (I will definitely be listening to this film's score for a long time coming), acting was off the charts (Chalamet specifically was outstanding), and I'm completely drawn into this world. I'm a massive sci-fi fan, and I've seen plenty of films or tv shows that are good, but are also just cut-and-paste of other familiar stories. This felt new and fresh. Also (and I normally never say this because most films don't really warrant it in my opinion) but this movie NEEDS to be seen on the biggest screen possible. The experience of watching this in IMAX was unreal. It's extremely rare for me to consider a film a "masterpiece" ... but my god, Dune was a masterpiece and a masterclass of the sci-fi genre. Cannot wait for Part 2. Also, it's very easy to see why George Lucas drew an immense amount of inspiration from the Dune book for Star Wars.

As a fan of the books, I watched the film the first time, mostly just nervous they were going to fuck it up somehow. When it ended, and the credits rolled, I mainly just felt relief. My primary emotion watching the film was just gradually relaxing more and more until the end. I enjoyed my second watch of the film a *lot* more. I could just start relaxed, and enjoy the show. I deliberately avoided and reviews, previews, interviews, or trailers, so other than knowing they made one character more "diverse", and knowing that Denis Villeneueve makes really good movies, I didn't know what to expect. The film is very, very faithful. It was about as well done as anyone could have hoped. I would've liked about 20-30 more minutes of runtime, a few added lines of dialogue they cut out, a scene or two added that wasn't included, and maybe some more discussion of the political, cultural, and economic situation. The book has so much more depth to just about everything, even the glowglobes you see following characters around have a full explanation in the books, and it's done in a way that's entertaining, all the exposition is carefully and subtly woven into the story in a way that feels totally natural. So I'm really glad people enjoyed it without reading the books first. I wasn't really sure if people would get it, and a lot of stuff is glossed over so the film can focus on Paul and Jessica's story. I hope people who enjoyed the film go and pick up the books and read through them. It will definitely enhance your viewing of the film and its sequels. If nothing else, at least read the first half of the first book, you can stop where the film stopped. It will just give you some of that depth you're missing, and better explain just how high the stakes are, and who all the characters are. Characters in the film who come across as being really minor are fully fleshed out in the books, and they are very much worth getting to know better.

37:50 “But why doesn’t it go further in the ground?” Sandworms are covered in a tough, leathery series of ring segments that protects their soft, sensitive inner skin from the abrasive sand. Worm-Riders use tools called “Maker Hooks” which they imbed at the edge of the ring and then use to pry the edge up. The worms reflexively rotate their bodies to get the exposed flesh as far from the sand as they can, and stay on the surface until the Worm-Riders remove the hooks. The hooks are also used to control the direction the worm travels by being placed on different sides of their bodies. 🤓

The idea about how Duncan (in particular) fights with his blades is that he was trained on a planet called Ginaz, where the best swordsmen in the galaxy are. Presumably they have developed a technique of subtle motions within conventional swordstrokes that allows a blade to bypass a shield more readily, so that it seems as if they didn't slow down at all. . It's a flimsy explanation, but considering the themes of Dune, while not an explicit part of the books, would fit quite readily. Ginaz was also (according to the prequels by Herbert's son) the last place one could find thinking machines, after the Jihad against them. The Swordmasters there used the machines to train to fight the machines. Which is why their students are the best. They literally trained to fight opponents with super-human strength, speed, and precision. Like Batman sparring with Superman.

The dreams are symbolic and metaphorical. Jamis did teach him the ways of the desert "It's kill or be killed". Also house Atreidis is from ancient Greece. It was the house of king Agamemnon, king Menelaos, Orestis, Iphigenia, Electra, Clytemnestra. Have you ever read Homer? They were literally a cursed house (spoiler from the Dune books the Atreidis descendants with the gift of sight are called cursed). Atreas and his bloodline was cursed by his own father when he accidentally caused his younger brother's death. Another nice link from ancient Greece with the movie is the bull. The Atreidis curse was broken when Orestis returns with his sister Iphigenia from Taurida - Land of the Bulls.

I liked at the end, during Paul's duel, he saw a pile of bodies in a vision right before he took his first life.

It was easy to understand without too much exposition. I enjoyed it.

We know for a fact that George Lucas read Dune, and was directly inspired by it. Of course, he chose to make the most kid-friendly, pedestrian hero's journey story he could think of, and just threw in a bunch of neat special effects, which to be fair were pretty neat for the time. Dune is a lot more complex, and it's a subversion of the messiah myth instead of playing it straight like Lucas did. I definitely prefer Dune. It's not even close. Everyone should read the books. Frank Herbert was the Tolkien of science fiction, except Frank Herbert could actually write a narrative well.

I will just answer possible future questions and give interesting facts: - Greg Fraser is the cinematographer of this film as well as the upcoming Batman - The film was shot in Abu Dhabi, Hungary, Jordan, and Norway - Hans Zimmer dreamed of writing an ost to Dune - Paul's blue eyes mean that he has been using Spice for a long time, like Fremen - There was a war against machines in the Dune universe, and therefore there is no Artificial intelligence and advanced technologies, the inhabitants of different planets have abandoned them, and rely only on their skills, experience, skills in mechanics, engineering, etc... - The Bene Gesserit is an order of priestesses /witches / fortune-tellers (different cultures and mentalities perceive and call them differently) consisting only of women who have influence within political foundations and represent themselves as advisers/ mentors close to royal families (like Arethusa sorceresses from the Witcher universe, well, almost ...) --The bald guys who stood next to Vladimir Harkonnen (The Flying Fat Man) when he took a bath are Mentats, they are a living archive and a guide -Those who attacked the Atreides at night are the Sardukars, one of the strongest armies and the personal guard of the Emperor (the Harkonens are even less cruel compared to them, and unless only the Foremen can repulse them, by the way, they are one of the reasons why the Emperor was never dethroned) ruthless, real self-murderers, carry out any orders (somewhat reminiscent of the Outriders of the "Space Dogs" from the Avengers:Infinity War) when you saw a scene with Mongolian singing under a rain shower, then pay attention there people were sacrificed in the form of a ritual, this is one of their traditions...(according to the Aztec type)

I'm hoping for a trilogy. The second movie can finish off book 1 and the third movie can cover the events of the second book. That would work well. Overall, I thought this was a fantastic adaptation of the story so far. There's so much to cover and the 2 and a half hours flew by for me. I would have loved a little more time with the family once they were on Arrakis before the Harkonnen attack but I get that pushing the length beyond the current movie length would have been a harder sell.

Man this movie hits REALLY hard in IMAX though - it’s one of those audiovisual experiences that only comes around once every few years (the last one was probably Mad Max: Fury Road). Also, I don’t know how fair it is to want Dune to have more jokes, quips or “ruckus” - it’s more important for it to be the best version of DUNE it can be, than simply ape whatever Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, or even Marvel did in the past (I personally blame the latter & the internet for general audience’s attention deficiency & addiction to frequent dopamine hits- joke or fight scene every 5 minutes - rather than letting a film do what’s best for its own particular story, themes & tone).

I really hope someday, somebody with talent and a large budget puts together a Dune TV series. X-rated (as called for in the books, at times, but not gratuitous), on premium cable or a streaming service, give it the full Game of Thrones treatment (when Game of Thrones was good), do 10 episodes per book, an hour long each episode. Maybe some of the books (Dune Messiah) could be fewer episodes if there's not quite enough material. Keep it faithful. Trust the audience to get it, and don't dumb it down. Don't add unnecessary action. A lot of episodes will just be characters talking to each other, or Paul having visions. That's okay. There's enough action in the books, and that will happen when it happens and it doesn't have to happen every episode. Anyway, if I had a billion dollars, I'd get the rights and I'd do it, produce it entirely myself to make sure it was done right, expecting not to make any of the money back, but not having to worry about investors or a network demanding changes. The film was great, but man did it leave so much of the depth out that you get in the books. I think the film was about as good as we could've hoped for. But maybe film isn't where Dune can really shine. I get that people want to go see it in IMAX or whatever and really take in the desert, but to me the books were never about the visuals. There's no long, lingering shots of endless sand in the books. It's just words on the page. And yet the books are among the best novels ever written.

This was a pretty darn faithful adaptation. While there are definitely differences, they are fairly low impact on the main story. We were mostly missing the early story Mentat intrigue (but we still got the the same place in the end), and a lot of detail for the characters/world. That second bit always worries me when they adapt a book I've read, because it is so hard to judge how the uninitiated will be able to assimilate that knowledge (or if it will ever be presented).

I agree about the adaptation. This is easily my favorite movie of the year. Just a couple of things. When they originally announced Dune and that Timothy Chalamet was going to be Paul, I was a little apprehenisive about it but Damn, he nailed it. When the trailers came out I was like this is exactly what I imagined Paul looking like. I will say there were only 2 small nitpicks on my part. First is the absence of really much discussion about the navigators and spacing guild. Secondly, the fight between Jamis and Paul. I thought the way it was filmed took away some of the meaning from the fight. I didn't really want them fighting loin cloths but something more like MMA fighters today would have been ok or what Paul was wearing in the opening scene because a lot of the movie is about Paul growing up and becoming a man and leader. We also know he was just as well trained if not better than the fremen so the contrast between this skinny athletic kid vs hardened warrior was lost a little with the both still suited up. Then after the fight him becoming a man and finally teaching these fremen warriors another fighting technique. I think this is especially important because there has been no mention of the "sound" weapons so it appears they are being left out which means the fighting style Paul used has to be far superior to the fremen for this skinny kid to have beaten their warrior. But thats ok. Still loved it.

There are 6 books written by Frank Herbert then he died and his son took his father's notes and started writing the current series which explain ALOT of the backstory by going into the past explaining the machine crusade where the AI enslaves humanity and the Butlerian jihad in which they gained freedom from the machines. The biggest law becomes, not to make a machine in the likeness of a human mind. This is why mentats came into being, they are humans capable of computation and analysis through spice and other drugs.

BH and KJA books are dangerous for integrity of FH's Dune lore. The main problems are not low imagination level, shallow storytelling and not-masterful use of language but stupid retcons. If you read closely you can see that wrong lore-killer decisions. In Jihad trilogy and sequel books, with Omnibus and Erasmus, they turned Dune into kinda copy of Terminator duology by James Cameron. But Dune is no Terminator story. It is more painful, and realistic despite its kinda fantastic substance. Frank Herbert in six books: Humans are enemies of humankind and humans exploit other humans by using AI by never losing the reins of AI. But humans with AI seduced the beauty of their own creation and never stopped to use it. Exploited humans rebelled against humans with thinking machines. And Butlerian (butler+ian) Jihad started. Humans who were against the dependency on AI won. BH and KJA: Humans made AI and then lost its reins. So battle between ultimate evil AI and humans started. Humans won.!!!?????? But this is not FH actually meant! This just oversimplifies, reduces and ignores the richness of Dune's main Frank Herbertdish argument. This makes Dune a non-Dune. And they did this intentionally. I do not think that they did not understand FH's main idea. I think that this was a deliberate act and I do not know why. Why shattering the integrity of Dune's lore? This is so frustrating. To be honest, I initially really wanted to love Extended Dune books. But now, no.

Paul can see all possible outcomes and like the space travelers guild who can see paths thru the stars, he can see the best path thru to the best future outcome.

The vision with Jamis is actually not in the books (at least not that I remember), but I really liked it. Because the theme with the visions in the Dune franchise is that they only show a possible future and not one that is set in stone. All of Paul's visions in this movie were possibilities and he has not yet learned how to know which path leads to which future. As a book reader, I found the idea of a future where Jamis was a friend and a mentor quite fascinating.

I think Paul having visions of him as a mentor is an interesting way to show this connection without having to state it in dialogue.

The worms are like whales; they can travel easily through the sand, but solid rock is a barrier to them. In the scene, the worm chases Paul and Jessica as far as it can, stops as it comes to the “shore” of the rock they’re standing on, and then turns away to track down the diversion of the thumper. 🤓🤓

The spice awakens visions of multiple possible futures in Paul. So, some of the things he sees don't turn out exactly the same way in reality, and some do. At least at this point. That's also why Jamis was teaching him the ways of the desert in one possible future, but in fact Paul had to end up killing him. Either way, Paul benefits from the information, it's just how he uses it that becomes an issue. He doesn't understand it initially either, like learning to walk for the first time. You're going to get it wrong a lot before you get it consistently right.

"Maybe they should have made it where you can't get through fast or slow." Cool detail covered somewhere in the books, they were designed that way because if the shield stopped everything coming it's way, it would even stop air from getting through, so you would end up suffocating. So they compromised by stopping anything going over a certain speed (like bullets or fast blades). And if lasers hit it, something like a nuclear explosion goes off, hence why there are almost no lasers shown.

Loved the reaction, but if there's one movie of the last five years you absolutely have to see in the cinema, it's this one. The scale and immensity of it is mind blowing. I don't think it comes across much or at all on the small screen.

I havent read the books or watched the original movies and such but i thought that this movie was fantastic. It really sucked me in. I was glued to the theater screen and it was entertaining too and the world is so mystical for me who doesnt know much about it. I cant wait to see the other movies when they come out.

This movie was my first exposure to the world of Dune, and I absolutely loved it. From the concise world building to the incredible production design, I was immediately swept away by the epic scale of it all. And yes, while the sequel will do a lot for the series overall, I think many people overlook the story arc that was there. Just like the first Lord of the Rings, it’s about the breaking of the fellowship, and that deeply influences what happens next.

Gorgeous film. Best of the year and one of the best classic sci-fi films in years. Remember this book came before Star Wars, even Star Trek, Game of Thrones - any of that. Incredibly hard to adapt to screen

41:10. OK, as a super fan of the book who understands he has no objectivity THIS specific discussion has made me decide to officially give this movie a 9/10. The main reason it is not a 10/10 is because the ending is too cliff hangery. The fact that you understood perhaps one of the of the most esoteric concepts which took the books chapters, and chapters, and sometimes entire whole novels to convey tells me the movie is successfully communicating the concepts of the book.

I agree. I had no problem with the ending. I just wish the movie had been 3 hours and given us more character development. Could have used more of the backstory about Dr. Yueh and why he betrayed. Also could have used a few minutes extra of the Mentats. And the banquet scene would have been great

Ending wss perfect as it leaves you wanting more in a good way. I had no issue with the ending. But I could have watched 3.5 hours of it. I had other issues as wanting more interactions between some characters. And less quick cuts in some scenes to other scenes. Which is why I agree 9/10

Lol what do you mean TOO 'cliff hangery' it's a cool cliffhanger that sets up the next installment aka the second half of the first novel. Are they supposed to just kill of the Emperor and Paul and introduce my boy Leto in this movie. They have to slowly build up to that and a cliffhanger is the best way to keep the audience interested.

Something that's not explained in the movie regarding lasers is that due to some technical aspect there is a feedback when lasers come in contact with shields. In the book it's almost a subatomic bomb on both ends of the laser when that happens. Potentially useful if you're willing to self sacrifice, but most army's avoid using lasers because of this issue.
TruckDrivinGamer 9 aylar önce
All very true, and to carry it a step further: to avoid people using it as a kamikaze measure, sacrificing one lasgun ship for a shielded city on someone else's planet for example, there is an agreement between all the planets in the empire that if one of the great houses willingly uses a lasgun against a shielded opponent, that houses planet will be obliterated by everyone else in the empire. It's by mutual agreement that atomics, and also lasguns against shields, are not used in warfare, in order to preserve humanity from self-destruction.

George Lucas really took alot of inspiration from dune. The fermin are basically sand people, spice, a chosen one, "the voice" is like a jedi mind trick, and sand worms. I didn't realize how much inspiration he took till I watched this 🤣

No…. Not all blue eyes people are Fremen… it’s anyone that has had long exposure to the spice. Hence why the workers on the harvesters have the bright blue eyes…….(however, it is fair to assume that blue eyes equals fremen, since all fremen do have it)

Correct. Spice addiction is rampant so anyone that eats or is exposed to spice regularly will have the blue eyes.

To answer what Liat Kynes was doing setting the thumper, she was calling a worm to ride..She was holding the tools to mount and scale a sandworm…The reason the worms don’t just go under the sand with a rider is one of the tools opens and holds open a segment/scale of the worm. The worm instinctively rolls that section as far away from the sand to prevent injury and that brings the rider to on top of the worm. As long as that tool is in place holding open the segment of the worm it will not submerge into the abrasive sand as that would injury its softer fissure under the skin.

'Why didn't the worm dive deep?' The maker hooks open a ring segment, exposing the sensitive flesh below the ring armour. The worm will not dive below the sand so long as the hook exposes the underlying flesh. Fremen ride worms by moving hooks around a segment ring, turning the worm in the desired direction. Fremen goad a worm to top speed and exhaust it before they drop off near their destination. The worm will then dive deep to recover and the Fremen can leave safely.

The Sardaukar scene and the entrance of Bene Gesserit witches were pure art.Also the Voice was visualised wonderfully. But the lack of the multiple nuances,plots within plots, made many who watched it not getting the depth of characters.Maybe Duke Leto approched the most of the book character

Very impressed with the film. My main critique is the absence of the Guild Navigators, they're only mentioned a couple times and briefly seen once (and those were just First Stage Navigators). The Guild are the true power behind the Throne and the true rulers of the fate of Mankind via the prescience of the Third Stage Navigators. All the conflict we see in the book/movies are the visible repercussions of the secret war the Bene Gesserit are waging against the Guild, culminating in the creation of a super-user of prescience to usurp the Navigators at long last... which of course spins out of their control thanks to Jessica. The Guild are the true masters of Dune, holding the Fremen hostage by agreeing to not annihilate them from orbit, nor allow anyone else to, in exchange for Spice. It is only when Paul discovered the secret way to kill the Worms and end Spice production that the Guild are forced to capitulate and become the hostage instead...forced to transport his armies across the Imperium in the Jihad.

Just saw this on IMAX ! Amazing movie, way better then I was expecting! The music was in the right moments!! Very, very nice! I didn't even felt the 2 hours pass by! The books take a lot more time to explain in detail things that take 30 secs to explain in the movie! It's very accurate in my opinion.

@KierrokCyclone I love reactions. Its hard to tolerate just straight up distractions though.. And nah, he jokes about his made up hypotheticals and ruins his buddies authentic reaction experience. It becomes: them telling Aaron he’s wrong, and he just keeps hypothesizing. Meanwhile, essential dialogue passes, which confuses someone like Eric, who wants all the intricacies to be heard. I feel like I can speak for a decent chunk of their audience when I say (without disrespect) Aaron’s reaction/analysis isn’t usually the main reason we watch them
