1 min read

Dune is a 2021 sci-fi movie directed by Denis Villeneuve (Blade Runner 2049). Starring Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson and Oscar Isaac.

It is based on a novel by Frank Herbert. The popularity of the movie has inspired an MMO video game based on the Dune series.

Plot, Synopsis

A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, “Dune” tells the story of Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence-a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential-only those who can conquer their fear will survive.

Movie Reviews

“At least gets closer to the elusive goal than its predecessors (…) What the film doesn’t do is shape Herbert’s intricate world-building into satisfyingly digestible form.” 

David Rooney: The Hollywood Reporter

“I’ll always love Lynch’s “Dune,” a severely compromised dream-work that (not surprising given Lynch’s own inclination) had little use for Herbert’s messaging. But Villeneuve’s movie is “Dune’ (…) Rating: ???½ (out of 4)” 

Glenn Kenny: rogerebert.com

“A sensory experience so opulent and overwhelming it begs to be seen big, or not at all (…) If you’re already knee-deep in Herbert mythology, you’ll thrill to every whispered word”
