My thoughts on Dune 2021.
Soundtrack not by Toto. No Sting or Captain Picard. No oozing pustules. Not quotable. Women will actually sit and watch it with interest. Movie didn't include Frank Herbert's penchant for interior monologue. Piter De Vries went from having eyebrows that were on par with Leonid Brezhnev to having no eyebrows at all. Mispronounced Harkonnen. Kept waiting to see a guild navigator in a giant fish tank. Was disappointed. But the sets and costumes were fantastic. The orthothopters were great. The 2021 movie was epic, but it wasn't as fun or kitschy as Lynch's version.
The people I watched it with had never read Dune, and my oh my were they confused, but they liked it anyway.
