Maclachlan mogged Chalamet

While watching these new Dune movies, not once did I feel the regality and conviction of Paul Atreides' chatacter emanate from Chalamet's performance. He comes across like a depressed zoomer trying to act cool but failing miserably. Maclachlan on the other hand captured the aristocratic nature of the character perfectly and embodied his strength and resolve.

      Explain why you believe Chalamet's vacant stare is "regal". Why are you so obsessed with shilling for Chalamet?

        You're fricking delusional if you think Maclachlan is better, you just watched Dune 1984 as a child to distract you from when mom and dad were fighting so you have a nostalgic attachment to it

        Kyle Maclachlan is a c-list TV actor, Chalamet is an oscar nominee who's the next Leo Dicaprio. Cope

                Both MacLachlan and Champagne were five to seven years older than Paul is in the book. If that meant that MacLachland looked ever so slightly too old, fine. But Charlemagne looked several years too yound, especially in DUNC2. Oh, wait, there wasn't a timeskip. I guess they can't have one either before Messiah?

                Kyle was 25 when that film came out, a decade older than Paul is for most of the book. He didn’t look ‘slightly’ too old. I like him as an actor in general, but the best thing about his casting was the later collaborations with Lynch, and there’s no question that Chalamet looks more like a teenager.

                MacLachlan looked young enough. And even if you don't think he did: It's easier to pretend that Paul in Lynch's Dune simply is canonically 18 or 20, than it is to pretend that DUNC's Paul is 10.

                DUNC1 only made 400M on its original run. The additional 30M came from the recent IMAX rerelease that was part of the hype campaign for DUNC2.
                Those 400M were considered barely enough to break even, with maybe a small profit. But DUNC2 had a higher prodcution budget, and based on that alone, it needs to make at least 500M to break even. Considering how huge the advertising push was though, with them having the full cast attend a dozen premiers around the globe, I'd argue that the merketing budget was also significantly higher than it is on average, so it'll probably need between 550M and 600M to break even.
                If it made 450M, that would be a massive disappointment for the studio.

                Such a point doesn't actually exist. Most countries have a point of legal accountability (criminal responisbility and capacity to contract), which does not coincide with the notion of adulthood (and is usually somewhere between 12 and 16). Most countries also treat adoclescents and adults differently as defendants in criminal cases, but employ psychological procedures to determine the maturity of the defendant rather than strictly go by a cutoff age. Children, however, cannot even be tried criminally.
                There's also particularly moronic rules in some countries (like the US) where adults aren't considered full adults in some respects (like 18-year-olds being allowed to vote, but not to drink). In other words, you're full of shit.

                No. 15 year olds are past puberty. That makes them, by every single definition of those categories, adolescents. They aren't considered children by law anywhere, and they aren't considered children in a biological sense. A 15-year old is physiognomically closer to an adult than to a child, that's just a result of the growth spurt that comes with puberty.
                Your confusion seems to stem from some sociocultural narrative you have soaked up that "child" and "adult" are a strict binary, which science (and law) disagrees with. May I ask you to define the concept of an "adolescent" in your own words, anon?

                Why do I get the feeling if they remade showgirls and chalamet was in it you'd call that scene really hot and accurate to the book because his character is discribed as looking like he got his lunch money stolen every day in school and therefore showgirlc is a much better movie than showgirls.

    Machlachlan was terribly cast, way too old, doesnt look the part, and is a shoddy actor in Dune at least. Chalamet looks more like I pictured Paul, is perfectly lanky and young, and tried harder to put real effort into the acting.

              every time a bookgay of any book suggest fixing an adaptation of that book, they always think adding more from the book is the solution.

              but that's the opposite of how Hollywood used to handle adaptations and it generally led to better movies. streaming series that don't even need to worry about editing or pacing have only made the problem worse.

                That isn't even the real problem with adaptations, either, that bookgays don't seem to get. There are things in books that simply only work on the page, not on screen. It's a function of how the readers mind works to smooth over certain details. This most often happens with character ages, as a young child character doing all kinds of heroic shit is perfect for the imagination, but not so much for live action portrayal.

                Just because VIlleneuve was afraid of having to direct a child actor when he cannot even get good performances out of adult actors, that doesn't mean the concept is unfilmable.

                That's not whataboutism. It's correcting your notion of an "awkward stare" by giving you an example.
                When you tell me that the sky is red, and I tell you "No, that's not red, look at this tomato", then that isn't whataboutism.
                Of course, you're literally too moronic to understand it. You probably think that the colour example I just gave to illustrate that point is itself "whataboutism". Because you will take any chance you get to avoid discussing the point other people make and instead accuse them of random fallacies you once read about but didn't understand.

              it takes longer and accomplishes less.
              plus it creates the false impression that the Harkonens are the ultimate antagonists when really its the Spacing guild. so its not even closer to the book, you just liked it more because New Thing > Old Thing.

                She didn't even fully understand what the spice is used for or why the Harkonnen left, why would she have the insight to tell the audience about the fricking Spacing Guild which doesn't even show up in the movie? It's literally the conflict being told by someone experiencing it, instead of some omniscient homosexual sitting us down and saying "Here is the bad guy, but THESE guys are the real bad guys who won't show up in this movie, okay?"

                My mistake, they DO make an appearance and it's indicated how powerful they are without outright telling the audience that they're corrupt bastards, but again that's no excuse as to why a teenage desert girl would be able to tell the audience about them.

                between the atreides and the harkonens yeah.
                except that if Denis wanted to do a "messiahs are bad" story, emphasizing the revenge arc was the worst possible choice because he was always going to have to backpeddle on whether Paul actually needed to fight Feyd or resort to genocide.
                people are reacting to that frickup with the muted reception of the ending of the new movie.
                >visually interesting
                you're just trolling now. Star Wars opened with a literal text crawl and its one of the best openings ever.

                do what I did last night: go torrent Dunc part 1 and the 84 Dune, and look at how much more Dune 84 has accomplished by the 20 minutes mark. dune 84 has had an actual action sequence with Paul fighting a training robot, vs anonymous backstory Fremen getting blown up by harkonen rockets. Dunc 1 spends a really long time on a ceremony where Leto accept Arrakis that has navigators but tells us nothing about them at all.

                The openings are the worst part and the score is 95% of why it's not agonizing. I would never refer to Star Wars as an entertaining or visually interesting opening because it's a text crawl from a movie from the 70s.
                >dune 84 has had an actual action sequence with Paul fighting a training robot
                Fricking riveting, I love seeing Agent Cooper awkwardly jumping around a dildo covered in knifes.
                >anonymous backstory Fremen getting blown up by harkonen rockets.
                Are you fricking stupid or something? It's Paul's future squeeze telling the audience about Arrakis and hyping up the Harkonnen. Shooting down a giant spice harvester before they all get massacred (since it shows why the Fremen fight, that they're better warriors but are completely outgunned, and that life is short and violent on Arrakis for those who live there) is a lot more interesting than a guy in a room fighting a machine for practice.
                I liked the Herald of the Change because it shows how medieval and ritualistic the world is and how wealthy the Emperor is that he can send a retinue to Caladan just to seal a document, and that the Atreides don't really have a choice in the matter.

                do you realize why its stupid to have the opening montage of a movie handled by a character who doesn't understand why the frick anything is happening? wouldn't it make more sense to use a character who can convey key plot into to the audience?

                84 dune is actually closer to the books because the chapters often start with Irulan quotes.

                Do you realize why it's immersive to have the setting narrated in a biased way by a character instead of an omniscient narrator spoon-feeding you information?
                > wouldn't it make more sense to use a character who can convey key plot into to the audience?
                I understand why that's a very boring and stupid way of conveying information, since you might as well hand the audience a pamphlet to read before the movie begins.
                >Irulan quotes.
                The Irulan quotes don't fricking work in movie form because it's her describing things happening before they happen as if she's narrating a history book on the events transpiring. Do you not understand how stupid it is to have her disembodied voice talking about why Dr. Yueh is a traitorous snake before it's even revealed that he's the rat?

        He cast his 12 year old son, who had been in one movie when he was 7. He put him under the tutelage of a French martial artist for two years because he literally wanted his son to become Paul. Also he wanted a troony to play Princess Irulan because Dali was fricking it at the time.

          The DUNC movies are unironically some of the worst films I've ever seen. Six fricking hours yet they're missing most of the things from the books that made them good. Taken on they own, it's utter confusion why anyone does what they do or why the plot plays out as it does. You have to resort to reading the book/watching the other adaptations to even get a clue. It's just some soulless, colorless attempt at a starwars-esque franchise now that they can pump out bloated, overly long sequels (which have no real ending) every few years

    >When he was 12 years old, his father cast him in a planned film adaptation of Dune by Frank Herbert. He was trained to play the part of the novel's protagonist, Paul Atreides. He had been taught by Jean-Pierre Vignau, a famous French coach in Japanese jujitsu, karate, judo, aikido, and also knife and sword combat. His training was intensive: 6 hours a day, seven days a week over a period of two years until the film project was shelved. Brontis described the training as painful and merciless.

        Jodorowsky himself famously is a fraud. He even went as far as fooling himself into believing that he's some unprecedented genius filmmaker.

          It got a little weird nearing the end. Already when he was describing the opening shot I realized how fricking impossible of a movie this would've been. And then when he describes how nobody wanted to deal with him he goes on about how it was a money problem or that everyone was scared of Jodorowsky and his "brilliant" ideas.
