    “Everyone bitches and moans about how many takes I do. People I’ve never even met complain about how many takes I shoot. The take of Neil Patrick Harris parking that jaguar dead center in the middle of that frame… that was take 2. It was take 2 and it’s in the movie. We walked away on take 2. So, please, go fuck yourselves.”

    David Fincher, the unrivaled king of commentary tracks.

    Dune: Part Two

    ★★★★

    Undeniably impressive, and the scale is massive, but I think I prefer the sophistication and palace intrigue of the first installment (perhaps Eric Roth’s touch, who wasn’t credited here). This is a tad too overstuffed with plot and, in retrospect, it’s hilarious to think about Villeneuve’s quote about not caring about dialogue. It’s still incredible, of course. People are comparing it with Empire Strikes Back, and I can see why, but to me this is more like Aliens, in the sense it expands the world of the original and focuses more on the action. Looking forward to the upcoming rewatch.

    “Is this a time to talk about Romans? I’ve had no breakfast, I’m hungry.”

    Not without its many qualities, but this is mostly bland affair that, honestly, should’ve just leaned into the camp. Colbert is also miscast. Hoped for more.

    A very relatable story in the sense I would also question my engagement if Allison Brie showed up and wanted me.

    Pacino’s crocodile-themed shower curtain is something to behold. Check it out here and here.
