Let me start this off with a praise, I fucking love Ally Sheedy. Honestly, most the acting in this is fairly good.
Now here’s my problems, it’s oozing with over sentimentality, the writing is below par, scene transitions do not feel smooth at all. But a lot of this I blame purely on the era of filmmaking. It is a sweet film about how change after years is inevitable, we all grow and become different people. Some of this…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
The dialogue in this film is incredible.
I remember when I first saw this, I had to be like 10 or something, and my parents made me turn it off when the police officer got shot in the head. Now, I appreciate this film so much more. The acting is amazing, the cinematography is top tier (but I may just be a sucker because I’m from Minnesota,) the score is epic and dramatic, and this movie is just downright hilarious.
Dreams are messages from the deep
Goddamn I wish I could have seen this in IMAX.
The cast, score, CGI, sets, everything comes together for Villeneuve to blow away my expectations once again.
Timothée Chamalet gives the performance of his career as Paul Atreides, and everyone does exceedingly well. One of the best cinematic experiences I’ve had since, you guessed it, Blade Runner 2049.
I am very much looking forward to Part Two. Because like my boo Zendaya said “this is only the beginning”
