Trent Walton’s review published on Letterboxd:
I love the book(s) and I love what Denis Villeneuve and team have accomplished—couldn’t ask for more. Thoughts after first viewing:
* how’d they establish the politics, environment, culture, and sci-if terminology so smoothly!?
* that spaceship is the coolest I have ever seen
* oh no that one! is it made of concrete!? stone?!
* mmmmm architecture and texture and light
* look at all these massive doors!
* look at all these massive doors on spaceships!
* that spaceship door has a woven rug!
* the laser crackle sounds and noisy light particles are everything
* this IS star wars for adults and I feel like a kid! gonna go draw some spaceship doors!
