    The brevity of the gom jabbar scene surprised me a bit. IIRC it's much more elaborate in the Lynch version (the latter I suppose being far less surprising lol)

    I've watched it twice. It's phenomenal. One of my favorite sci-fi movies (or movies of any genre) in years. Can't wait for the second one.

    I think the picture quality was better on my LG OLED but IMAX audio was loud and great.

    Trying to figure out what Duncan grabbed from his belt during his first encounter with the Sardaukar in the hallway. It's a shot that clearly focuses on him grabbing at his belt after he deflects the darts and charges the remaining Sardaukar.

    He turns on a suspensor belt for the charge. You can see the lights go red and it makes a more subtle version of that crackling sound the Baron's suspensors make when he wants to get up.

    The main issue with the Three-Body-Problem is that is as very as a concept the books suck. Then you learn about gravity but boy that book still fucking sucks.

    Villeneuve on the Quebec current affairs talk show called Tout le monde en parle (Everyone's talking about it) last night:

    Script is already done for Part 2

    When asked whether he would adapt all Dune books, he answers, "One movie at a time." He says Messiah would be interesting to adapt as it follows the character arc of Paul, but the other books "become... more psychedelic, and... intense"

    looks like they cut a few scenes that would have added to the Doctors storyline that you mentioned before ITT had a lot more depth in the books. Explains a lot

    Took a 2nd viewing to realize they didnt do the dinner scene on Caladan. That was a good scene from the book. Also some good exposition

    Dinner scene on Caladan? Wasn’t it on Arrakis with Liet Kynes and some more Harkonnen plants doing a subtle power positioning that was still more or less obvious to Lady Jessica?

    didn't read the books and haven't seen the lynch version. i didn't know anything of the plot but did know that this was part one.

    really enjoyed it, like i have for all of valleneuve's films. the scope and scenery were really incredible and i thought all actors were quite good (except maybe the doctor). i'm also generally comfortable with a lack of exposition.

    going to rewatch again this weekend with subtitles just to be certain i understand all of the worlds/new words. had no real issues with audio but the fight between paul and the native guy was very dark on my screen (which i assume was intentional as the sun wasn't up yet).

    also, the voice sounded amazing and seems like a totally unfair power.

    Picked up Dune Messiah. I was shocked at the lack of weight to the book, thought I was going to buy another 800-page weapon.

    Damn man it’s been almost 24 hours and im still thinking bout dem dunes. I saw critics bashing the ending and I just don’t get it. Seemed to end on the perfect note of continuation. Villeneuve is just incredible. I absolutely adore filmmakers who let their imagination jump off the screen.

    You knew you were in for a ride when the movie started by bellowing out a guttural, unearthly 6 word message. Immersed the theater for the remainder of the movie.

    Hans Zimmer opens up about his "crazy ideas" for 'Dune: Part 2'

    https://www.inverse.com/entertainment/dune-part-2-hans-zimmer

    The movie makes a mention of Gurney Halleck's renowned musical talents, but we don't hear him sing. Did you write any songs?

    I wrote them, and I recorded them. They exist, and Josh [Brolin] sang them beautifully. Anything that exists will eventually find its way out into the open. We can't hide anything anymore; so you just have to be a little bit patient.
