    Yeah if DUNC 1 had the same pacing as DUNC 2 it would have covered all of those events in like 40 minutes, and that would have been fine. If they insisted on it being that long they should have added more of the political scheming and worldbuilding from the books instead of having half the runtime be landscape shots.

    Dune 2 really was good though, it seems like the creators genuinely took the advice of the fans and its a genuinely great movie, definitely the best of the 2020s but thats a pretty low bar.

        fair

        the first third of the book is just as slow as part 1
        it's how the story goes

        They completely cut Thufir, lots of the worldbuilding, the buildup to Yuehs betrayal, Leto knowing he was walking into a trap and trying to outmaneuver his enemies, Kyne's death, and the plotline about people not trusting Lady Jessica. Not to mention all of the bits with the Harkonnens that got cut since they decided to turn them from flamboyant, well connected schemers to one dimensional demon monsters.

        And this is all just from memory based on a book I read 5+ years ago I'm sure there was even more that got left out.

            >Jodorowsky was going to shoot part of the film in Algeria. They spoke to the Algerian government, and the Algerian army was going to play extras. Jodorowsky was looking for who was going to play Jessica, and he wanted a strong, beautiful woman, not a weak dainty woman. Someone with a real spiritual strength. He saw a movie with Charlotte Rampling, and thought she would be perfect. They sent Charlotte Rampling the script, and she agreed to meet with Jodo before she had read the script, and in the script, there is a scene where a character named Rabban the Beast, part of the Harkonnen army. In order to insult Duke Leto, David Carradine, Rabban the Beast gets his army, the Algerian army, to pull down their pants in front of the palace and shit. So there’s going to be a scene of 2,000 extras defecating at once. So here’s Charlotte Rampling, she agrees to meet with Jodo, she gets the script, she reads the script, and she says, “I can’t be in a movie where there’s 2,000 extras defecating on screen! I need to be in a movie that people are actually going to see! Who the hell is going to see this movie?” Jodo said, “It was a great disappointment for me. A great disappointment.” It’s kind of fantastic.

            Jodorowsky was a filthy Hollywood pig and I respect the based mexicans who formed a lynch mob in reaction to his pedo-flick being played in their country. His version of Dune would have been just a vehicle for more of his filth

        "Aesthetics" is a bit of a stretch for what he put on the screen there. Almost the exact opposite ... "anaesthetics", I guess.

              The cinematography of the film is probably one of the most consistently praised things about it

                It's trash. And if you actually understood cinematography, rather than parroting youtubers and bloggers who know as little as yourself, you'd actually notice that it's bad-student-film-tier, lacks creativity and variety. And the terrible lighting and lack of colour grading do the rest.

        I want a 20 hour version of Dune, a show if you will. 2x3 hours is way too restrictive, not even enough to properly explain the basics of it.
        I had to explain a whole fricking lot to my friend because the movie was way too simplistic.

      Right. Everything. Except for the books. And Lynch's adaptation. And the mini series. And the porn game. But, other than that, and lots of other films and books unrelated to Dune, we hate "everything" here. Not only Villeneuve's "masterpieces", but Brian Herberts "incredible contibutions" as well! Imagine that!

          in the intro of part one they use the same lasers on the harvester, they do so damage but get rekt by missiles shot from the harvester itself. Not quite sure myself how it works in part two

        >I don't get it, why film in imax, and then NOT release it?
        Because the IMAX format is shit. It's way too vertical/square, when your eyes have a horizontal alignment, giving you a much wider horizontal field of view than a vertical one. In other words, the IMAX format has a lot of empty space on the top and bottom of each frame where nothing of value happens, because you're meant to concentrate on the center.
        Or, as you put it:
        >IMAX is such a fricking scam.

        The result of this is that if you released it as is, due to the image being smaller and you'd be able to take all of it in at once, you'd notice how much emptiness there is and how little happens. Cutting away all that shit massively improves the experience. Well, as much as possible with a trash film like DUNC.
