For a lot of people, this was the most anticipated film of last year, which means when it got rolled back to this year, there were a lot of people anxious for it to finally be released. This last weekend, after debuting in other markets around the world, “Dune” found it’s way onto screens in the U.S. and we can finally talk about it.
Our guests had a variety of backgrounds on the story of Dune, we had people who had read all the Frank Herbert Novels, one who had only read the source novel, and one who had never read the book. The same can be said of the previous big screen adaption, a couple of the Lambs knew it well, one could not recall it even though they saw it, and one never saw David Lynch’s 1984 version. There did however seem to be a coalescence of views for Denis Villeneuve’s dream project.
Richard struggles with the word “origami” but drops “utilitarian” with ease. Cameron is effusive in his opening reaction to the film, providing all the spoilers for the show that you are going to get (none). James decides that bagpipes are ok in the year 10191 and Amanda has already picked out the toy she wants based on the film. We also did a show without a spoiler section because frankly, we want you all to go see the movie.
