I had more clarity at home, but didn't have it excessively loud as we had at the theater. We all had problems understanding at the theater, particularly with Stellan Skargaard's voice.
Maybe it was because like you said the movie theater has bad audio the one I was at didn't and the bass was awesome

Hans Zimmer did WW84 and Dune music...Maurice Jarre did Lawrence of Arabia
Thanks, didn't mean to imply that LoA was also the same guy for the soundtrack, but WW and Dune sure sounded very similar, and it makes sense now.

Zimmer does have a bit of a signature or style I think. I was just curious after reading your comment so looked it up :)

Yeah pretty sure the theater's setup was the issue. I did experience better bass at home, too :)

I'll bet I can't wait for this to come out on disc so we can all see what our systems at home can do with that bass

With all the overhead flying and air battles I hope they do a 4k atmos disc for sure

sheeet you're right. ok, mostly avoided.
Agreed but you knew some changes of role casting was going to happen in current day Hollywood. I still thought she did a good job. And just grateful that the casting or story line wasn't just butchered like it has been with other movies comics and other forms of entertainment.

I just put the stream on to listen to a few scenes and found the volume a bit low. Probably watch the whole thing again tonight.

I might watch it again tonight too. There's a lot packed into the movie and I'm sure I'll pick up on some stuff I missed the first time around.

I have nothing against character swaps like that when it's not done with a heavy hand and still works with the story. There's a difference between "it works" and "make it work". This worked.

I won't mind villain woman for a change. How about Baroness Harkonnen?
Tribes of Europa tried, but some aspects should be reworked IMHO, like masturbation for example. o_O

That could work.

You know, right when I finished that post I thought to myself, "Okay self, how would you feel about Paulina Atreides as the protagonist??". I thought about it and I really don't think I'd have a problem with it. Except then I remembered that part of what makes Paul special is the fact that he's trained as a bene gesserit and that's a thing usually reserved only for women, so it might not work for Dune.

Baroness Harkonnen tho? Why not?

You could reverse the whole thing and make the Bene Gesserit like male priests ala catholicism.....

I don't have issues with differing roles for genders from the traditional....been a sausage fest far too long :)

That might be the reason Herbert went the way he did.
