    What’s most impressive to me about Dune is its versatility. Despite maybe being Villeneuve’s most mainstream and accessible effort to date (the comparisons to Star Wars are apt, to say the least), it is still very much a Denis Villeneuve film. His atmospheric sensibilities are firmly intact, resulting in a pensive, complex, and visionary work that challenges as much as it captivates.

    Very let down by this even though it’s not bad by any stretch of the imagination. This entire 3 hour endeavor is annoyingly incapable of drumming up any stakes, which doesn’t make the action any less enthralling but it makes the buildup and exposition extremely monotonous when the villain’s plan is as absurdly ambitious as it is. Lots of the problems here are rooted in the story, and chiefly in Rami Malek’s villain, who doesn’t really have any character besides…
