Gio Howard’s review published on Letterboxd:
From the perspective of someone who had read the first book, incredible adaptation.
However I'm not so sure how much say a random family in Milwaukee would be patient enough to enjoy this movie.
When you put it up next to the usual formula of a Blockbuster, Dune requires more from the viewer. Thicc worldbuilding and visual storytelling on this level is hard to achieve while retaining an audience.
We'll see how this film fares in the long run. Personally I hope it makes enough money to prove that projects like Dune can be profitable and hella nerdy.
