Review of the Dune book:
I read the Dune book and it surely is a great book. This book is a must-read for people interested in fiction and adventure. Having read that book I really wanted to watch the movie when I heard of its making. I was anxiously waiting for its release.
Review of the Dune Movie:
When the movie was released, I immediately watched the highly anticipated movie. It is an action-drama film in which we get to watch a son of a very noble family many thousands of years in the future trying to secure the most precious boon in the galaxy. It’s more like a science fiction movie than action due to a few action scenes.
The character portrayal by every actor is so good. The performance of every actor is outstanding. Everyone has done justice to his role. Their body language, impressions, and chemistry are exceptionally amazing. The music in every scene is so well on point. The soundtrack is incredible. There were a few fight scenes that were a treat to watch. The role of the main character, Paul Atreides is breathtaking and his acting has brought flavor to the movie. Rebecca Ferguson was so good. Her role as a mother is brilliant. She was the real soul of the movie. Zendeya’s character was short but beautifully played.
Script and Direction:
The script is so dramatic and nice. The cinematography is also brilliantly done. Villeneuve has directed it so beautifully and has made it a masterpiece. I think it’s the best movie he has ever directed.
Its main flaw, however, is that it is a very slow movie. The scenes are so long. They keep on dragging the scenes when not even needed. Although it was a two-and-a-half-hour movie, it felt like a four-hour movie. Some scenes which needed to be longer were made short. Some scenes were like that they were thrown at the viewers and were difficult to grasp. Its ending is so dragging and not on point. Dune masks a spring promising ever-lasting life or the capability to manipulate others’ minds. Though there are geographical characteristics on the Planet resembling Earth’s sand dunes, there are some rocky hills, mesas, and buttes. It makes more sense as if it were some ROCK. The people interested in science, fiction, adventure, and some fighting movies can watch this movie even though it is a little bit boring in some places.
Jason Momoa movies and TV shows:
Jason Momoa movies and TV shows include Aquaman, Dune, See, Game of Thrones, Baywatch, Conan the Barbarian, Frontier, Braven, The Bad Bitch, Stargate Atlantis, Justice League, Wolves, Bullet to the head, Slumberland and many others.
Dune, the first of two planned adaptations of Frank Herbert’s classic science fiction novel of the same name, was published in 1965. Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) and his noble family, the House Atreides, are driven into a struggle for the hazardous desert planet Arrakis in this science fiction picture set in the distant future.
But there’s a catch: whoever rules Arrakis also controls the unique spices that grow only there. The new aristocratic regime has to deal with a brutal invasion from the evil House Harkonnen on top of the extreme heat and lack of water. Because Harkonnen has been taking advantage of Arrakis and its inhabitants for eighty years, they are not about to give up their lucrative source of wealth without a fight. The Fremen, the indigenous people of the desert, are fiercely anti-imperialist and hostile to the Atreides.
To those who haven’t read the books, the Atreides family is one of the noble families that rules over the feudal galactic empire known as the Imperium. Paul, the son of Duke Leto Atreides I (Oscar Isaac) and his Bene Gesserit concubine Lady Jessica (Rebecca Ferguson), is the protagonist. Paul was born on the planet Caladan. Because of his Bene Gesserit heritage, he can influence people with just the sound of his voice. Is he the one who will save the world for all of humanity?
Dune appears to be a lot at first, and even rudimentary familiarity with Frank Herbert’s novels will help. For a first-time observer, the Islamic-Arabic terminology and the plethora of characters may prove overwhelming. However, it’s not strictly necessary. Denis Villeneuve is a true master of his profession; he never skimps on the scope, depth, or emotional impact of his films.
He uses voice-over narration to introduce you to Herbert’s future world gradually. Villeneuve, who is well-known for making transformative epics, manages to astound with every shot and hold your undivided attention. His attention to scale and detail is breathtaking. The music, composed by the famous Hans Zimmer, is mesmerizing. The IMAX version of Dune is just as impressive visually as the original.
The visual brilliance of Dune is not all it has going for it. The story deals with the evolution of man, as well as the human control of ecological, political ambush, religion, faith, and superstition, survival, and more. Nonetheless, you are never overwhelmed by the subtle societal critique. You get the gist of it without missing out on the beauty with which the enchantment and adventure unfold. A realm of sand, sun, desert storms, and shadows where eyes sparkle like diamonds awaits you. There is no watering down of the story’s religious undertones. There are hints of Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, and Arabic all over.
The technology shown in the Dune series is breathtaking, especially the ornithopters, shields, and other pieces of equipment.
Timothée Chalamet shines as Paul Atreides, a pivotal supporting character. You can tell right away why this young actor is already up for an Oscar. His expressions always say more than words. His charisma on television and acting ability are both astounding. In addition to these two men, the performances of Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Jason Momoa, Dave Bautista, and Stellan Skarsgrd are also very good. Zendaya shines in a short but significant part.
There’s been a dramatic revival of cinematic spectacle. We fell in love with cinema because of Dune. This sci-fi spectacle, which also has a strong emotional core, is worthy of an IMAX experience.
I may need your help. I tried many ways but couldn’t solve it, but after reading your article, I think you have a way to help me. I’m looking forward for your reply. Thanks.
THANKS FOR YOUR REPLAY
