Honestly I have kind of a hard time describing Dune, it almost seems like an epic to me. And because of that I almost feel like anything I say about the movie won’t do it justice. So I’ll just mention a few of the things I loved about the movie while trying to not spoil anything big.
My favorite part about Dune is the flawless combination of the futuristic and the mystical. There’s just something about seeing high tech ships one minute and then the next seeing someone in what could only be described as spiritual garb that I really enjoy. But seriously I love it when a story is able to combine both sci-fi and fantasy, it just feels fulfilling to me. Like it scratches both of those genre itches at the same time which is great. I also super loved the variety and uniqueness of the ships. I feel like in most sci-fi shows and movies all the ships are similar to each other but Dune had an abundance of uniquely designed ships. All of which made me really excited.
I also really enjoyed both the cinematography and sound design. The filming, CGI, setting, and of course the acting was beautiful and amazing! Every actor and actress in this movie felt perfect for their role. But what really got me was the sound design, it truly enhanced the mystical and mysterious circumstances surrounding Paul.
All of this made this an extremely engaging movie to watch but I feel like I do have to add that this movie definitely not for everyone. Basically if you don’t like complex stories that require you to pay close attention, understand context clues, and that leave things to be fully explained till the end then you most likely won’t like Dune. But if those are your cup of tea like they are for me then this movie would be an 8 out of 10.
P.S. I am very eager for part 2!
