I’m Going To See ‘Dune’ Again Tomorrow!

For the next week starting tomorrow Dune is back in IMAX and of course I had to jump at the opportunity to see this film (my favorite movie of the year!) on the big screen again.

I can’t believe how excited I am. Even though I’ve watched the film at least five times on HBO Max there’s something so utterly magnificent about this movie that it just makes me happy. And there’s nothing like seeing this movie in IMAX. If you haven’t experienced this movie in this movie I highly recommend checking it out. It’s worth every second.

I’m counting down the hours.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

The ‘Harry Potter: Tournament of Houses’ Has Begun!

Well, Harry Potter fans, this has been quite the year of celebration. Twenty years ago a movie entered theaters that changed the world. It was called Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and it catapulted a franchise into being thanks to quite a huge dose of magic.

As fans all over the world celebrate the momentous occasion I have been included in the celebration in an awesome way.

Thanks to Warner Bros. I got this awesome box filled with iconic Harry Potter goodies like Bertie’s Bott’s Every Flavor Beans (yes, they really do have earwax and booger-flavored beans, among plenty of other gag-inducing flavors like vomit, sausage, and even soap!) but that’s kind of the magic. It really transports you to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. And receiving my Hufflepuff scarf (yes, I am a proud Hufflepuff) was probably one of the best things I’ve ever gotten from a gift box like this.

I proudly own a wand I got from Universal Studios about a decade ago and now I have my Hufflepuff scarf! How awesome is that?!

‘Dune: Part Two’ Has Been Greenlit and Pixar’s ‘Lightyear’ Has a Teaser Trailer

Yes, yesterday Dune: Part Two was greenlit by Legendary who was ultimately the production company that would decide the sequel’s fate. Everyone was waiting (im)-patiently for the official announcement which, thankfully, dropped yesterday.

The news was met with genuine joy/excitement from the thousands of people, like me, who are beyond thrilled to see Villeneuve’s vision for Part Two. The film was also given a date: October 23, 2023.

That’s a reasonable date. It gives Villeneuve and the returning crew time to prepare themselves for filming the project as well as plenty of time to smooth out the kinks if need be. And in 2023 we’ll get the second in what Villeneuve has planned to be a trilogy. That’s a very exciting and I couldn’t be more thrilled.

I Watched the 80s’ ‘Dune’ and the New ‘Dune’ Back to Back: Here’s What I Think

Friday afternoon I watched Dune and it managed to exceed all of my expectations. It was visually masterful, perfectly acted, and way easier to comprehend. But, being the movie buff that I am, I wanted to revisit David Lynch’s Dune to see the differences between the old and the new versions as well to get a greater idea of what to expect in Part Two.

First off, Villeneuve’s version, based off of the material we’ve gotten so far is undoubtedly the superior version. Everything is handled with so much more thought. There’s a presence to the new Dune that the other one just doesn’t have. Basically, you can tell the director, the actors, and everyone involved with this movie put every fiber of their being into this film because it shows.

What I can say about Lynch’s Dune is that it does feel a bit more faithful to the actual book in all of its weirdest ways, like the almost unwatchable grossness of the Harkonnens, the hilarious voice-activated version of the weirding way, or the very cryptic version of Paul’s visions. But the second half of the film which flies by painted a ridiculously epic picture of what’s to come in Part Two.

‘Dune’: A Fantastical Prologue But That’s All It Is

When I walked out of my local theater after having just watched Dune I was blown away from what I had just seen. Of course, that’s what Villeneuve intended. He wanted viewers to watch his film and be left gobsmacked and yeah, he succeeded.

Dune isn’t the best science-fiction film I’ve ever seen but it’s undoubtedly one of the most memorable. Villeneuve doesn’t make this film like most moviemakers. He takes his time like directors of old, letting his story build upon an epic narrative that–if executed correctly– could be something truly exciting.

The cast and beautifully conceptualized world-building is the best thing about this film. My favorite characters were Oscar Isaac’s Duke Leto Atreides and Sharon Duncan Brewster’s Liet Kynes. If you’ve seen the film, well, oops.
