Dune ★½

A movie I most definitely respect a lot more than I like.

Granted, it’s a near-miracle this turned out watchable at all, but it’s still not very good. It’s a perfect machine of a movie, taking the characters from point A to point B all the while (I assume) following the book to a T, but that’s kind of my issue with it. So much of Dune is focused on obsessively detailing everything from the intricate little details of its political world to the sheer spectacle of everything that the emotional lives of its characters get left by the wayside. It sure does look nice, but damn if I felt a thing while watching it.

Impeccable set design though!

1.5/5 stars
