    "Dune" is equally as fantastic on second viewing, with me having most of the same thoughts as I did on the first viewing. I caught more of the plot, structure and character arcs this time, and noticed some similarities with Fellowship of the Ring in that it's mostly set up and they have similar character arcs. I can't say more about that without going into spoilers, though, which I don't intend to do now.

    This movie has an epic scale…
