Another Take On Dune

Sorry for all of the Dune poasting but I always like to get his take when the Critical Drinker sees a flick. He really liked Dune which is rare for a contemporary flick and the consensus seems to be that Jason Momoa was awful and no one really like Zendaya. 

Like Big Country he saw it in IMAX so that makes a big difference apparently. I still won't break my vow to not pay to see anything Hollywood produces but this one is a little tempting.

    1. That would probably come as close as possible to the theater without shelling out shekels to Hollywood.

    1. Popular entertainment, especially sports, is the big wedge that keeps a lot of Normiecons from coming all the way over. They know what we are saying is true but they can't stop wearing the jersey of some black guy that wouldn't piss on them if they were on fire.

  3. i cant get past gender swapping Liet-Kynes. Momoa is a pervert who should face the business end of woodchipper.

    This is the only movie to tempt me in almost a decade. God Hollywood sucks.

    1. It isn't that she is a terrible actress, it is more that there was absolutely no reason whatsoever to cast Liet-Kynes as a black woman other than as a finger poke in the eye of the fan base. None. You tell me they couldn't find a middle eastern or Greek male actor who would look and sound like him, so they went with a black woman?

  4. ..stop being weak and paying for the destruction of your values....

    Amen.

    Neil Postman wrote a book called Amusing Ourselves To Death. He was right.

    Americans would let their children be raped live on TV, if you give them enough entertainment. Americans love their entertainment. It is pretty fucking disgusting. "Life-time free cable. Fuck yeah you can have my kids."

  5. I'm with you on this. We do not have cable and I have not been to a movie in years. Perhaps decades.

  6. Ditto. Until it's free (ish) . . . I'll be missing it. No reason to feed the beast.

  7. Sorry for the late comment, I was just made aware of it today and watched it. The fan re-mix of the 1984 Dune really blew me away. Soooo much better than the original. The extra 45 minutes didn't even bore me, it made it much better. When I tried to re-watch the original last year I couldn't even get past the first twenty minutes. Try this one, instead of the new.
