Dune ★★★

A brutalist, political space opera whose scale on the big screen at times is truly something to behold. As with Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049 amidst the spectacle there is still something here that just feels empty and lifeless although with the former it connects with the themes presented in a more significant way. For some this will be a triumphant viewing experience especially those with ties to the novel and the nostalgia, for others this will be awe inducing to a degree but ultimately will feel meaningless and overlong.
