Dune

Dune

2/10
Finished reading the book twelve days ago so I had to get around to seeing this soon. Obviously pretty shitty on the whole as far as acting, writing, structure, and characterization go, the latter two being so vague and rushed. Tons of themes and ideas that make the book effective are thrown aside or, in some cases, actually reversed in this film. Such a mess that I honestly felt like I was on drugs for a good majority of it. And they did my favorite gal Lady Jessica so dirty! She's literally my favorite part of the book, and she's hardly even a character here.
I'll throw in some positives though: some solid production design, some cool music, and some really great (and occasionally disturbing) shots every once in awhile.
