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.

The casting choice is poor, and will only cause further problems if Villeneuve is able to make the second part of this story.

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. Harrison Ford was a carpenter remember.

However it occurred to me that James Cameron cribbed the basics of the plot for Avatar, and that most moviegoers watching the Villeneuve film and seeing the story for the first time will probably get that this was already done in Avatar

So basically… why on Earth was this made? It will look like they’re ripping off the ripoff.

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.

Obviously, two negative reviews are not indicative of a bad movie. On Rotten Tomatoes, the Tomatometer, which currently consists of all critic reviews, has it at 90% positive. It must be a relatively well-made film to get that high of a rating.

Yes, I know RT is not the end all of cinematic assessment, but it does count for something. Many unfavorable reviews are borne out of the preconceived notion of expecting the movie Dune to be an accurate, in-depth reflection of the book. Movies like that never make for mass audience success.

Trailers do their best to promote movies in the most persuasive light possible to attract their target audience, and overall they serve their purpose well. That being said, no matter how hard they may try mask a movie's shortcomings, you can usually get a pretty good idea of the general flow and content of the film.

I've seen most of the trailers, both teasers and the longer official ones, and the impression I repeatedly get is that it will be visually engrossing, but the dialog will be banal and the melodrama trite, as most movies of this scale tend to be.

The action-adventure/science fiction genre is opium for the vast majority of the masses who attend them and people don't come for thought provoking content, and most of all, they don't want to think. Inevitably, you end up with films that cater to middle school level intellects and a meat and potatoes mindset.

I will still watch it, though. Hopefully in a cinema for the best viewing experience.

It's beautiful but also...ordinary. In terms of the movie's look and effects, there's nothing new. The story has been so influential to other writers and filmmakers that nothing feels fresh. Characters get introduced and die and we don't really care, because we never got to know them anyway. Chalamet doesn't have the gravitas to play a messiah. It's also too long--attention started flagging about 45 mins before the end. It's not terrible, but it's not amazing either.

You have to be if you want to thrive in that world. I haven't seen DUNE yet but I will look at it out of curiosity. Between T and Z everyone is talking about a great chemistry but I still have no reason to confirm or deny it, I am waiting to see the film. But the stans of both now want to ship them together, and that's part of the promotion of the films. It happened first with AH in CMBYN, then with Lily Rose in The King and with Saoirse Ronan in Lady Bird and Little Women.

It was like 2 hours and 15 minutes which is way too short for an epic sci-fi. Earlier in the movie it was said how Fremen are the best fighters among all the tribes yet the mom beat Javier Bardem's character who was a Fremen's leader in a few seconds. And why did the mom looked at Timothee like that when they were changing clothes on the rocks? It was weird. To the people who have read the novel, this is just one part of the novel, right?

I was looking forward to this. Started the film about an hour ago and was bored so I decided to come here to read the comments. I'll finish it but so far I'm slightly disappointed. I'm indifferent to Timothee Chalamet as an actor.

I'll rewatch Lynch's version tomorrow. It's a great, fun movie with cool actors and amazing visuals. I always loved it.

by Anonymousreply 507October 20, 2021 9:11 PM

There's at least a few comments on here in defense of Lynch's version. I watched it recently on HBO (I also saw it when it was first released) and almost immediately found it to be a muddled, meandering, and fragmented mess as it plodded along. I have never read the book, but didn't need to in order to realize the disordered heap that this movie largely was.

DUNE's 1984 interstellar special FX scenes were atrocious compared to what the Star Wars franchise had accomplished at the time, and substantially cheapened its science fiction theme. It looked almost 50s era fake and it's obvious that a lion's share of the film's budget was invested elsewhere. I really don't see how people can claim that Villeneuve's interpretation is worse.

Even the reviews trying to be nice are damning.

"Dune is a gorgeous but imperfect epic, a technical wonder that spends too much time setting up a third act that never comes." --from IGN.

I subscribe to the viewpoint that Dune is probably unfilmable as a single movie and would have done better getting the limited run one season / 10 epsiode Netflix treatment.

Some of the reviews for The French Dispatch said that the individual stories don't have enough time for the viewer to get invested. Sounds like that might've been better as a miniseries too.

It's about as good an adaptation as you can expect.

Kind of upset about how much is cut out, especially when it comes to several characters that get shorted, but you have to cut SOMETHING to get that sprawling epic on the screen I guess.

The nay-sayers are just objectively wrong. It's very well done, engaging, a visual feast, good acting, and a more-or-less faithful adaptation (while not being so slavish that it doesn't work on the big screen).

VASTLY superior to the Lynch flim, and to that staid mini-series.

by Anonymousreply 533October 22, 2021 4:31 PM

It's somewhat visually striking, but it's also sort of stupid looking. The Harkonnen Palace is just giant empty interior spaces with no furniture--it seems unimaginable anyone would want to live there.

There's no attempt to make the dress uniforms of the Atreides men look like anything other than 1940s European dress uniforms, even to the fact that Oscar Isaac's jackets have a single vent at the back.

Chalamet has a stupid contemporary haircut that's long at the top so that hair keeps falling in front of his eyes.

Characters we don't get to see yet: Feyd-Rauth, the Emperor, any of the Navigators...

From the Slate review: "This film is a curiously paradoxical achievement: a visual and aural marvel that is also a crashing bore." A bit like the lead himself. Or as another reviewer put it, "Chalamet remains more haircut than actor".

I have loved the book since I was a teenager. This is the best visual adaptation I've seen yet. While I enjoyed Kyle MacLachlan's performance, he was a bit too old. Paul is a boy, a smart boy on the cusp of manhood, but not fully grown. The time elapse for filming a sequel would give Chalamet time to bulk up a bit. And I loved the throat singing on Salusa Secundus when the Sardaukar troops were shown. Villeneuve got so many things right.

"The weekend leader, however, was Warner Bros/Legendary’s Dune which began offshore rollout back in September and just spiced up its worldwide cume with an additional $47.4M overseas and, along with its domestic debut, easily crossed $200M global through Sunday, as we previously noted was poised to happen. IMAX also had its biggest global October opening ever with Dune, mounding $17.8M for an unprecedented 20.3% of the worldwide weekend total.

The Denis Villeneuve-directed Dune led offshore business for the session, taking an estimated $47.4M on 49,205 screens in 75 overseas markets. This lifts the running cume to $180.6M internationally, and to $220.7M worldwide. The overall holdover drop was a terrific 38%."

R594 Overseas is not "mostly finished" at all - the film only opened early in 14 territories, with it rolling out in all remaining territories, such as the UK, on the same weekend as the US opening. It has grossed $40.1 million in its US/Canada opening weekend which is above the $30-$35 million pre-opening estimates & represents the best opening both for any 2021 Warners title and of Villeneuve's career.

Given that it was released to streaming at the same time as theatres in the US, and the fact that it's an adult orientated film, rather than a Marvel/Transformers style piece of schlock, that's in no way indicative of a "flop".

What I LOVED about DUNE:

- the relationship between Duncan and Paul was such a nice touch, and from their first scene together I knew that Duncan’s death was going to hit HARD (and it did). the way that Paul couldn’t make sense of his visions and did everything to try and stop them, and how he was so relieved every time he saw Duncan again, and then the panic he showed when he realizes it’s finally happening and there’s nothing he can do to stop it. exquisite.

- i LOVED seeing the desert mouse as a repeated image throughout the film. it really drove home how much Paul was trying to hold onto his innocence and how terrified he was of the future and the violence he knew was in store for him. it still just breaks me that he CHOSE the name Muad’dib for himself (at least in the book, unsure of how that will play out in the film.

- he resisted his destiny because he never wanted to kill anyone, but the inevitability of it all just weighed so heavily on him, and you can see that in the tent scene and the duel scene with Jamis.

- In the books Chani always calls Paul: Usul; she thinks at this point that Paul is not the Madhi. But I guess that this is for part 2, I guess.

- the death of Liet-Kynes was so raw and dramatic and i loved it. the movie did such a great job illustrating how connected the Fremen are with the ecology of Arrakis.

- the Voice was SO WELL DONE i was wondering what effects they would use and seeing/hearing it in IMAX was 100% worth the $20 price of admission. seriously go see this movie in IMAX, if at all possible.

- really appreciated that they didn’t try to cater this movie to the normal entertainment-seeking movie-going crowd. it wasn’t overloaded with quips or anything, and i never felt like they had cut something for the sake of crowd-pleasing or avoiding controversy.

- i was in a pretty packed theatre and i think the audience only laughed like once. it was such a different experience from what i’m used to with marvel and star wars movies, and it was SO REFRESHING. this story is an EPIC and they embraced that. this movie is what a blockbuster should be, not fast and furious #3123

- the set design?? literally all of the architecture looked exactly like i imagined it. and i was almost squealing over the ornithopters they looked SO. GOOD.

- Hans my man you really put it all out there for this score and we love you for it. the score was the definition of pulse-pounding, especially during the invasion sequence.

- i was honestly worried they would do away with the whole jihad thing because of all the post 9/11 islamophobia, but even if they didn’t explicitly say jihad, the idea and threat of it were still VERY present in Paul’s visions

- still pissed they said crusade in the first trailer but it’s whatever, that line didn’t end up in the movie anyway. really excited to see how they expand on that in the second part.

- “i should have married you” OSCAR YOU CAN’T JUST SAY THINGS LIKE THAT.

- "It's only the beginning".
