    ★★★

    Dune and I are back to square one, unfortunately.

    I didn't like Denis Villeneuve's film at all upon its theatrical release. My second viewing at home a couple of months later was considerably more enjoyable. I still had issues with the movie, but I liked it and gave it a 3.5 rating, which I consider to be 'good, but not great'. That was two years ago and I hadn't seen it since. With the release of Part 2 coming up…

    What Drinking Worm Piss Does to a Motherfucker: The Movie

    Or y'all are a bit stupid. Yeah, I think I'm gonna go with that, actually.

    Back then Bruce Willis was still a few years away from not giving a shit anymore. He's fun as a hitman-turned-homemaker and has great chemistry with Amanda Peet, who plays his wife / wannabe hitwoman. Throw…

    ★★½

    Well, that wasn't very good.

    Dune collapses under its gargantuan ambition. Denis Villeneuve builds a world so stupendously large in every frame, and yet he spectacularly fails at creating space for his characters to exist in. There isn't a single character that has more to offer than mere surface level traits. Without proper introduction it feels like we are thrown right into an ongoing story. Despite being littered with clunky exposition - and dialogue so wooden it would give Christopher…

    Say what you want about Top Gun, but Tony Scott was a goddamn painter with his camera.
