‘Dune’: A Fantastical Prologue But That’s All It Is

When I walked out of my local theater after having just watched Dune I was blown away from what I had just seen. Of course, that’s what Villeneuve intended. He wanted viewers to watch his film and be left gobsmacked and yeah, he succeeded.

Dune isn’t the best science-fiction film I’ve ever seen but it’s undoubtedly one of the most memorable. Villeneuve doesn’t make this film like most moviemakers. He takes his time like directors of old, letting his story build upon an epic narrative that–if executed correctly– could be something truly exciting.

The cast and beautifully conceptualized world-building is the best thing about this film. My favorite characters were Oscar Isaac’s Duke Leto Atreides and Sharon Duncan Brewster’s Liet Kynes. If you’ve seen the film, well, oops.

I’ve Got My Tickets for ’Dune’ and Now I’m Starting To Get Excited for This Movie

Yep. I’ve got my IMAX tickets for Dune in a couple of weeks and it’s just starting to kind of dawn on me…I’ve got tickets for Dune!

I’ve been waiting for this movie since it was delayed last year and now I’m mere weeks away from seeing the film for myself. Last year I watched the original Dune movie from the 80s’ and even though its graphics were dated and the story was a bit hard to follow or just felt rushed I understood how amazing this story could be.

Now, Denis Villeneuve has brought it upon himself to bring this epic story to life, in IMAX, with a stellar cast, and I am pumped.

The overall consensus from the critics has been that Dune is a visually enthralling masterpiece but its story drags and feels more like a prologue than an actual concise film, which makes sense considering its the first part of a two-part story. The consensus from casual viewers though is that this is an incredible movie; the most powerful film since The Lord of the Rings and Star Wars which sounds ludicrous but very well may be true.

All in all, in roughly two weeks I get to find out for myself. 😆

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

The Official Trailer for ‘Dune’ Is Here!

It’s getting closer. Dune‘s time is almost upon us and I know for a fact it’s going to be one of the biggest events of the year. The official trailer dropped today and here’s a note; if you’d rather stay in the dark about the story then I really would refrain from watching this trailer because it shows a lot. But nevertheless, here’s the official trailer for Dune.

Epic. That’s all I can think when I see this trailer. It’s going to be an epic experience in IMAX. One that will remain in my heart for years to come.

I’m glad I watched the old Dune movie from 1984 because I can actually look at this and see things that I recognize which is really exciting, to be honest. This looks like a faithful reboot of a story that deserves to be seen on the big screen these days.

The hype is real.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.

Fan Art Wednesday

Today, there’s a change of content…slightly. Every week I share my sister’s digital artworks but this week I’m sharing a little more of what she can do.

Here’s a traditional pencil sketch of Timothee Chalamet’s Paul Atreides from the highly-anticipated reboot of ‘Dune’. I’m excited. My sister is excited. We don’t know anything about this story but we love science fiction so we figure we’re going to have a blast.

The Trailer for ‘Dune’ Is NIIIIICE

Okay, first off I’d like to announce that I’m one of those people who has no idea about Dune‘s story. I’ve managed to garner a bit of an idea of what is going on in this film through my father’s small details of the movie and the synopsis provided but besides that…I’m in the dark.

Thankfully, this three-minute-long trailer still didn’t give me an idea of what this new (and very epic looking) story is about and I am ready for it. Here’s the trailer.

‘Dune’ Gets an Official Image featuring Timothee Chalamet and an Official Logo

Last year it was announced that Denis Villeneuve would be rebooting the epic 80s’ science-fiction film, Dune, modernizing it with a brand new cast that is totally STACKED. Here’s the link to that post: The Dune Reboot Is Stacked to the Rafters With Talent.

With so many movie premieres and productions being delayed due to COVID-19 it almost seems like the entertainment world has come to a complete halt. So imagine my surprise and excitement yesterday when the first image and logo for Dune arrived to grace the internet and bring joy to all of us who are missing the movie theater experience. I was ecstatic and now I’m eager to share with you the photo and logo.

This first official image, featuring Timothee Chalamet as lead protagonist Paul Atriedes, is simple but already looks like something that will be awesome to see in IMAX. Denis Villeneuve is a visually provocative director, providing an epic feast for your eyes with his utterly gorgeous films. I don’t know anything about Dune but I’m ready for this ride.
