Finally Saw Dune - What a Trip

A discussion about Dune

Dune Info

I've heard rumblings recently about a new Dune movie - and had never actually watched the older one. The other day I saw that it had popped up on prime video, and I thought that was a good time to give it a shot.

I remember some things from the book, but not too much. It's pretty clear that the movie is shoving a ton of concepts and ideas in your face really fast to try and build the world visually. Having some background with the book helped in that regard. The overall pacing was a little hit/miss but overall I'm happy to have seen it now.

Huge worms, really creepy people and things, and such an interesting gothic vibe, mixed in with some spaceships laugh

Been a long time since I've seen this, I might just watch it again and I didn't know they were making a new movie.

Thanks David smiley

Yeah I've noticed a trend for movies on digital marketplaces

1. A new movie is coming, but it's far off. So they put the old movie on streaming services to generate a little bit of hype

2. Once the new movie is closer, they remove the old one from the digital marketplaces, kind of forcing you to watch the new one to get your fix of that franchise.

It doesn't happen all the time - but I've seen it more often than not. For example, you can't even BUY a digital copy of the old Alladin on Amazon, since the new one is coming soon.
