Denis Villeneuve does NOT miss. I’ve never rated anything of his lower than a four because his abilities of storytelling are unmatched. He also never fails to provide a mesmerizing score, insane visuals, and makes everything epic as fuck. Such a strong cast and for someone that hasn’t read the novel and has only seen the first quarter/half of David Lynch’s Dune, I was immersed in the awesome world. It felt like when I first watched The Matrix, Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones. Such extensive worlds, with its own unique language, that caught my eye from beginning to end. I cannot wait for part two. I need that ASAP, no rocky.
I also can’t believe we got Last Night in Soho (my most anticipated movie of 2021) next week, along with Antlers. October has been a helluva month for new releases. I love movies and the theater going experience!!!!!!!!
