Ehrlich's review gets better:
[quote]It helps that Chalamet is a natural fit in the role. The actor is something of a chosen one himself — a gawky New York kid who leveraged his internet boyfriend status into legitimate stardom — and Villeneuve helps steer him toward the dislocation of a bird-boned model descended from a line of sex mystics and Hemingways.

Ehrlich’s review is a thing of beauty:
“Stellan Skargård is the undisputed MVP as Baron Harkonnen himself, whose performance finally answers the question: “What if ‘The Island of Dr. Moreau’-era Marlon Brando could fly?”
“Villeneuve is in love with the scale of these subterranean beasties, each of which is half as long as the R.M.S. Titanic, and he frames them with such palpable awe that you almost expect the “Jurassic Park” theme to play every time they rear their butthole heads.”

This review sounds like it was written by a DLer; in a nutshell, it sounds like movie is beautiful, but boring. No performances identified as terrible, though the reviewers seem to infer that Timmy is too much of a lightweight.
Actually, I kind of liked Annihilation (Natalie Portman's natural chilliness is put to good use for a change) - though I totally agree SW sucked. Isaac is a good actor, but maybe that Harrison Ford level stardom isn't going to happen

Various reviews from RT, reflecting the 85% score-
[quote] The new "Dune" should be a smash hit. It's a big old epic, the kind we need right now, to sweep us away from viruses, hurricanes, and wars in real life.
[quote] Dune is science fiction at its best. Denis Villeneuve has created one of the best fantasy features since Peter Jackson's journey into Middle Earth.
[quote] Villeneuve has made it very clear he'd rather his movie be viewed on the big screen. And he's right. The scale is jaw-dropping.
[quote] The casting choice is poor... It's a small, but noticeable chip in the paint when it comes to Dune - a work that's otherwise of such intimidating grandeur that it's hard to believe it even exists in the first place.

I am surprised they made another version of Dune considering Lynch's version didn't take off almost 40 years ago.
I am, however, loving the adoration for Rebecca Ferguson in this thread. She truly is a great actress and it's a shame she hasn't had that breakout role yet to show off all her talents. However, she's had a great career so far in hits like The Greatest Showman and the Mission Impossible series. She is definitely one of my favourite actresses right now. She has such warmth and intelligence that sets her apart from the rest.
Also, dare I say it, she does the one thing that most actresses haven't been able to achieve: she has genuine chemistry with Tom Cruise. Thank God the MI series dumped Michelle Monaghan and replaced her with Ferguson because Ferguson is a far better actress and she works better with Cruise and the rest of the cast.

[quote]But Dune is a complicated book. It’s also a complicated film. There’s a real question as to why the Fremen – whose language, dress, and culture are so directly inspired by the nomadic, Arabic Bedouin tribes – don’t feature any Middle Eastern and North African (Mena) actors in speaking roles, their leader instead played by Javier Bardem in a shemagh-inspired headscarf. The casting choice is poor, and will only cause further problems if Villeneuve is able to make the second part of this story.

Dune has exactly ONE negative review, from that closet case at Indiewire. The others considered negative include great praise for many aspects of the film. And Chalamet, who is the least arrogant actor in the biz, has gotten strong reviews, maybe the best in cast total. Dune will be a genre classic for decades to come, the definitive version of the novel and all the haters can go back to their cross-stitch and Golden Girls reruns.

Probably this movie will do okay, though I would argue that Marvel has a pedigree with viewers that Dune does not. Probably the bigger problem for the studio is that after this, it's going to be much more difficult to make a big budget sequel & that seemed to be a common complaint about the movie - it was just Part I one of a larger story, rather than a complete story by itself.
Timmy does seem overrated (he was completely wrong for LW), but the next generation Harrison Ford guy (Ansel?) was a washout, so there aren't a lot of better alternatives out there that attracts people to theatres

A Part II would apparently be important to Zendaya and her Dune character-
[quote] Villeneuve has split Herbert’s book roughly in half, meaning that several of the significant character arcs are just getting started when this film comes to a close.
[quote] And though Zendaya is plastered all over the marketing as the female lead, it’s really (Rebecca) Ferguson who gets that spotlight: Outside of a few dreamy visions of what’s to come, Zendaya’s character doesn’t factor into the story in a big way just yet.
[quote] Villeneuve intends to make “Dune” a two-parter and is working on the screenplay for the sequel, but Warner Bros. still hasn’t technically greenlit it. The studio has tried the two-film gambit before, splitting the Stephen King adaptation “It” into halves, but those films opened two years apart and a prospective “Dune” sequel would likely take far longer to mount. (It may also concern the studio that “It Chapter Two” made some $225 million less worldwide than the first film, despite an influx of big stars.)

Dune is not filmable as a movie. It simply cannot be condensed into 2-3 hours. There is simply too much.
The best decision they ever made was allowing Peter Jackson to do LotR in three movies, rather than the two movies that were originally proposed. The worst decision they ever made was making The Hobbit into three movies, rather than two.

R140 What you (and tbh me too) see as unattractively sexless looks fey/otherworldly and pretty-in-a-feminine-way to his fanbase, that consists mainly of teenage girls. He's the generation z epitome of a "soft boy", so his very appeal lies in not being traditionally masculine. It's a feature not a bug to them. Keep in mind that young teenage girls would hardly know what to do with an adult-looking man exuding virility, it would totally overwhelm them. Especially since nowadays for young people "masculinity" is often combined with "toxic", so a lot of them feel everything traditionally masculine is borderline threatening and bad. So the sexless soft boy prince is a perfect alternative to pin all your romantic dreams to.
Personally I don't mind if Timothee is the generation z boyfriend, at least he seems to fit the bill in most ways. Much better than when other aspiring celebrities, who don't fit the bill still try to adopt this image for the sake of popularity.
It will be interesting though where his career will go once he ages out of these looks and his current target audience.

There's a massive opening in Hollywood – although they may not recognise it – for a dangerously sexy, utterly un-PC big-dicked Alpha Male. If I was a casting director I'd be on the lookout for someone who could blow a hole in current audience expectations, and give them what some don't even know they pine for. Even Me-Too slappers secretly dream of being banged hard and long – gentle rape-sex was a standard of half the romance novels until recently – remember all the chicks reading Sweet Savage Love? Hollywood needs a star who can visually telegraph that thrilling threat. I would be looking for him amongst the acting pool. Fuck those wet navel gazers. I'd be casting amongst tradesmen.

And Timothee seemed so much happier with French dispatch crew in Cannes, although in Dune he is the leading man. And otherwise he seems to get along with all costars. Couldn`t blame him though, This Zendaya girl has a great body, but gives a phony vibe and seems very pushy. Think I wouldn`t like her either.

They seem friendly and perhaps are a kind of friend. Timothee seems to have an easier time articulating his answers, while Zendaya seems to struggle somewhat and gives glib answers. I seems sweet and she may be an interesting person in real life, but she does not come off that way in interviews. She is not as cerebral as he is, while he seems like an overthinker. Maybe more dance parties are in their future, but I doubt there will be any serious intellectual conversation between the two. Sorry, I'm stoned.

Chalamet is making a big mistake going for the androgynous bait.
He could use his looks to define a different sort of masculine appeal - the wiry, intense, interesting sort, instead of the beefy THOR look.
Instead, he's feminising it, as if it's not worth its value in masculinity.
Of course, if he's not really feeling masculine, it's understandable.
But if he's playing off what he thinks is a viable trend, he'll find out as he ages that it's less than attractive at forty.
He should have just carved out his own sort of masculinity, it would have been compelling instead of like a coy joke he keeps playing, when it's less interesting every time he tries it on.
True class is indifferent to style.
Class up, kid.

R334 is right about the Graun.
As for their cultural reviews - I stopped paying attention when they gave the disastrous "Crimson Peak" a four- or five-star review because of the production values, and, of course, their partiality for any director who isn't Anglo. Guillermo del Toro is a favourite at the Graun, and the review completely disregarded the film's abysmal script, lack of anything resembling narrative logic, and its comical obliviousness to the rules that go to making a good Gothic story. When I went to see it on first release, the audience was laughing at the ghosts.
Then there was one of the deathless reviews of Pappa Essiedu's Hamlet at the RSC in which no one in the cast had the slightest grasp of iambic pentameter. One of the reviews lamely called the production "spiritually enlightening". I mean, really?
And, of course, no one raised the issue of "cultural appropriation", any more than they did when a large, lumbering black actress played the delicate, historically and verifiably white Queen of England, Anne Boleyn.
The Graun's opinions on any cultural product, like the NY TIMES on anything historical, political, cultural, or social, is viewed entirely through one prism: race.
I stopped reading their opinions long ago. If I hear the Graun liked it, I don't go. If they hated it, I set off immediately for the box office.
