It's probably like my dad, he's convinced almost all of the holographic girlfriend stuff was just there to pad the movie. Trying to explain how important Joi was to the story was pointless, like trying to explain the Fly episode of Breaking Bad.

As much as I liked it, if Blade Runner 2049 was any indication, he'll want to do one really long movie.

I didnt like it, but Im not going to judge a director after seeing only 1 movie. I havent seen the other two yet, but I plan to.
 
2017-11-10 05:32:23 PM  
I would've hoped he'd make one or two smaller movies and knock it out of the park critically and commercially, so I could be confident the studios would have the confidence to allow him to make the version of Dune he wants to make.

The box office of BR 2049 might have his creative balls in a vice.

Sicario was a waste of time, unless you're into stories where you could replace the main character with literally anyone else and still have the same movie.

smurfco: What was wrong with Blade Runner 2049? I thought it was good.


I think they tried to pack too many story lines in, and not enough time making a few key characters or moments memorable.  Bautista was the only memorable actor for me, and I can't even remember the name of the character he played!

Some hard script decisions and tight editing could have made all the difference.

Visuals: amazing.
Soundtrack: stunning.
World building: on point.
Editing, dialogue, and character motivation: not great. Not bad, just not great.

I took the jihad to have occurred because the Great Houses of the Landstraad did not accept his rule, and they all had atomic weapons. His jihad was to reshape the empire to be directly under his control, instead of being a balance of power between the Emperor, Houses, Bene Gesert, and Guild. So more like Mohammad conquering the world. ISIS literally wants to bring about the endof the world and the Day of Judgement.

I think Brian Herbert published something about it, but i don't read crappy fan-fiction.

Just rewatched it. Second viewing cemented how good it really is and I was able to pick up on the secondary characters more. I'm convinced it will rise in estimation over time, just like the original.

This.  The story of the first novel needs at least 4 hours to tell properly and even that would require some cuts.  Case in point - the SciFi miniseries was by far the truest to the source material and it clocks in around 5 hours.  Of course the production values were beyond awful, as was the acting (the Sardauker looked like not quite menacing pastry chefs).  By contrast, the Lynch version had a stellar cast and looked amazing, especially for when it was made, but was a terrible telling of the story.  Ideally, someone needs to make a 5 hour version with good actors and production values, so let's hope that is what he has in mind.  You just can't make Dune fit into one film.

According to that movie, every movie ever after has followed Jodorowsky's lead. And it's hard to refute when they do the montage of dune story board drawings and actual stills from the other movies.

Sicarrio was farkin' awesome.

Dune can not be done in a movie that is less than 4 hours long.  It should be an 8 part Netflix miniseries, or it's going to suck.
 
2017-11-10 08:03:10 PM  
I've always thought the original Dune movie was quite good, and faithful to the novel.

I cannot recommend that documentary enough.  For anybody with any sort of interest in movies.  The amount of talent that worked on it was staggering.  After, many of those same people took those ideas and put them in other movies.
The director and writer refused to read the book, just sort of made stuff up based on what other people told them.  His vision was to induce the effects of LSD on a sober audience. I think he might have been able to succeed

I proclaimed the world ready for a new Dune film when I exited the theater after the recent Mad Max movie. A rando smoking a joint outside a bar agreed with me so you know I'm right.
 
2017-11-10 09:35:05 PM  
The man may be a good director, and I like his works, but Dune is a book that has broken many directors for good reason: you simply can't approach it from a one movie standpoint.  And you have to be careful how and what you adapt to not cause the whole plot line to come tumbling down.  The writing of that movie has to be twice as good as the scenery.

I'm not even cautiously hopeful, I honestly think he will fail.  If he did an entire HBO funded mini series I would be over the moon and jumping for joy, because that would allow for the time and budget needed.  But a single movie?  No.  It's been attempted and failed.

Maximum trolling in this thread.  Jared Leto was admittedly the weakest link.  But you are completely wrong about Sylvia Hoeks as Luv.  I was blown away by her performance and even thought she gave Roy Batty a good nudge.  Watch the scene between her and Wright again and then tell me she's uninspiring.

Who did the mid-2000s mini-series? Sci-Fi, maybe?

Regardless, I love the Lynch/Smithee film. It's totally dumb, but it just has something about it.
