    Dune just got nominated for a Grammy. No cultural impact indeed

    Am I the only one who thinks this movie didn’t cause an impact/cultural shift it could’ve?? Buzz and interest from the general public died down after two weeks. I’m sure it’ll do well during awards season, I’m just surprised it barely made a cultural dent, especially with its content, cast, early reviews and LOTR-like comparisons.

    I don’t think anything comparable to LOTR is possible with the pandemic still happening.

    Another point against it is the terrible characterization of the villains and their lack of on-screen presence. They completely eliminated a fundamental character as Feyd Rauth and Peter De Vries contributes nothing to the story in this adaptation which is curious because in the original Lynch’s 1984 was played by the great supporting actor  Brad Dourif who was in turn also responsible for playin Grima in LOTR…

    Well, we wouldn’t have met Feyd yet. He’ll be in part two, most likely. And I thought the Baron was wonderfully menacing and creepy. The Harkonens are also mostly kept as a menacing background in the book until the fall of Arakeen so they should have much more presence in part two.

    I do see your point on Piter although what little of him we got I loved. But for what it’s worth, Villenueve said somewhere (I can’t recall where) that he is planning to really expand on Mentats in part two (which makes sense), so I would anticipate some expansion upon Piter.

    This masterpiece crossed the 100 million $ mark at the domestic box-office with 104 million $. It now stands at 383 million $ worldwide. I hope it will top 400 million $! It opened in Australia this past weekend

    Finally got to see Dune

    Excellent movie

    Great visuals and great score

    This movie does feel like one big set up for another movie or two.

    I side with people who think this could have worked as a pilot for a Dune tv series

    Dune is still unbeaten by any other threat in terms of Critics Reception mixed with Audience Reception and it has the box office in the middle of a pandemic. It would be a joke if the Academy didn’t realize the true strength of Dune this year and the huge accomplishment this film made. I hope this runs the table at Oscars and it deserves to win not just the technical awards but Director and Picture are a must to. Nothing will top Dune this year.

    This is the Fellowship of the Ring of the year. It’s too bad West Side Story will be the Moulin Rouge of the year and steal all its deserved wins.

    I’d give Dune a ton of Oscars. Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Visual Effects, Best Production Design, Best Editing, Best Cinematography (possibly) and Best Hair and Makeup.

    It wishes.

    Dune is like a weaker version of Avatar. More in the realm of how Dark Knight/Inception were received by the Academy, but a bit weaker than those too, as they received key awards for either acting or writing, which Dune will not.

    Dune is actually nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay by a lot of critics awards. It will probably have 7-10 Oscar nominations.

    Anyway, the movie is now at 394 million $ at the worldwide Box-Office. It only needs 6 million to finally breaks the 400 million $. Part 2 will probably top 500 million $!
