“Dune: Part 2”- I’m about to watch it to a sold out theater

I will let you know my thoughts and opinions after it is finished. I haven’t been this excited for a film in a long time, and it seems many feel the same way as me. While we waited to enter the theater a woman started chatting with me and said she canceled all her calls with clients today to come see it. She couldn’t wait. Many people are in work attire, as if they left early to come see it.

A lot of people wanna watch this.

Watched the cam version yesterday. Enjoy Charlotte Rampling and Florence Pugh, they were the best part of the movie for me.

Looking forward to seeing it at the Air and Space Museum with the huge six story tall IMAX screen.

Good thing you redacted all that vital information, OP. You wouldn’t want a Datalounger stealing your seat or throwing popcorn at you.

Ok guys. I just got out of the film a few minutes ago. When I get home I will give my honest opinion on this one. One thing I will say fast… ZENDAYA! A complete movie star performance.

Zendaya has the final shot and scene in the movie. Not Timmy.

She ate. The very final shot of Chani before the screen goes black.

My review: MEH. With all the raves, I expected to be blown away, but I wasn’t.

No reason for Muadib to be a scrawny little guy.

by Anonymousreply 11March 1, 2024 2:16 PM

Not a sci-fi guy. I thought the movie was slow at the beginning, but it picks up and the last final hour is sublime. I thought photography and music were superb. I was very surprised by how good Timmy was, and the rest of the cast was also very good.


I hated Christopher Walken, it really took me out. And I will never understand what the world sees in Florence Pugh.

I saw it yesterday. Waaaay too much romance, far to little science.

R15 you didn’t read the book because that’s false. Shes present throughout the entire second half of the book and a main character. And the film showed very little romantic scenes. You didn’t watch the movie either.

You’re an embarrassment.

by Anonymousreply 16March 8, 2024 11:33 PM

I must have skimmed past the romance and the boring Chani shit in the book then, cunt. Regardless, too much romance.

You’re a bitch and a cunt.

by Anonymousreply 17March 9, 2024 12:31 AM

Loved the techs and cinematography but the romance between Timothé and Zendaya is just so flat. Too bad. Léa S. and Austin B. on the other hand smoldered. Chalamet is much improved from Dune 1. I didn't laugh. His hair is great. He and Zendaya seem a bit too aware of themselves but not enough to ruin a film that .....let's face it ...... doesn't demand great acting. Great score. Great design. Rebecca Ferguson is terrific. Totally enjoyable in IMAX. Walked into the Do;by screening on my way out and caught the last hour again and preferred the Dolby to the IMAX.

Was everyone in the audience 40+?

by Anonymousreply 19March 9, 2024 6:22 AM

I saw it last week. The theatre was full. The sound was so loud, I don't know if it's because I"m now over 50, or if it was set that way by the theatre or by the movie it self. Some parts were so loud I had to cover an ear. Christopher Walken took me right out of the movie, unfortunately. He was overall good (subdued, for him) but he's so unique all I could see was him . Austin Butler was a creepy character (and scary with the bald head) but the body was on point (was that real or enhanced?)

Overall the movie was pretty good. I liked a lot of the scenery. Some of the plot was boring (reminds me the way Star Wars would go on and on about trade negotiations or whatever... zzzzzzzzzz)

What did you think of Timmy’s performance r20?

by Anonymousreply 22March 21, 2024 3:09 AM

R21 It’s an amazing film that needs to be experienced in a theater. It’s a cinematic masterpiece.

by Anonymousreply 23March 21, 2024 3:23 AM

For me the sheer spectacle of it (and make no mistake it is spectacular) dwarfed the human element.

I'd see it again though.

by Anonymousreply 24March 21, 2024 3:30 AM

I liked it but there was something sterile about it. Even the “love scene” between Timmy and Zendaya is so chaste and minimal they could be brother and sister. And no love scene for Austin either. I don’t know how it will be seen years from now. Probably people will think it’s too long.

R25 who said anything about Butler having a “love scene”? How would that even work for that character? The audience is supposed to view him as a threat, not someone with love scenes

They are not going to show love scenes in a PG-13 film. Love scenes in general have been removed from mainstream films.

Still I would have enjoyed Austin having sex rather than hearing about it after the fact.

I was surprised the studio or theater chains didn’t offer a double feature of the two parts together. Maybe that will come later.

Dune 2 is a flop just like the first one was, with the insane amount of money thrown on its marketing half a billion does not even cover the costs.

Denis is a genius and this film looks better than most films that cost $300 million to make. He made this for $190 million. The promotional budget was released and they spent $100 million to promote it globally. They needed $500 million to break even.

Also, the first didn’t flop. The retard doesn’t know what he’s speaking about, as usual. Then he wonders why no one replies to his threads so he has to keep replying to himself. The most ridiculous threads with 300+ replies? Yeah, because it’s him replying to himself.

I saw this in IMAX last week - it was incredible. I’m even considering seeing it again (I read the Dune trilogy as a teenager, so am a longtime fan).

I do think Timothée nails it as a naïf who comes to believe he’s a messiah. He has “it”. His transformation is unnerving. Christopher Walken didn’t take me out as much as I thought he would; his acting/character was subdued and effective. Florence Pugh is equally subdued and wonderful. Rebecca Ferguson is at turns… sympathetic? Terrifying? Monsterous? She’s great!

As with the first film, the music and sound design is amazing… so, yes, I’ve decided: I AM going to see it again. Not one minute of that long runtime was boring!

It’s a film that is actually even better on second viewing.

So that would mean Avatar took from Dune. Not vice versa…

THIS is part of why many people don’t like going to movies anymore. Studies have already shown 2/3rds of adults don’t go to theaters anymore and wait for streaming. This is why they don’t mind waiting. Movies are released on streaming so quickly after hitting theaters now it’s crazy. There is no incentive to go see it in a theater. You know it will be out on demand within 1-2 months now.
