    But I said in the beginning I just wish he hadn’t said it whilst leading up to the release of Dune—and then it went fucking viral, so why man why piss off MCU stans, there’s just so many of them.

    Agreed. Why did he say this when also a portion of the cast is in superhero films from the MCU and DECU as well? Maybe bad press is good press at the end of the day.

    Eh, MCU fans who wanted to watch Dune will watch it. Those who didn’t, won’t whether he praised or criticized MCU. Those statements don’t move the needle because they have an impact only to a very rabid and loud niche. general audience doesn’t know and doesn’t care. The movie is doing very well in Europe atm and there are MCU fans there too. Impact: zero.

    People who can’t handle opinions from filmmakers about certain movies are children and a tiny minority. Most people won’t even know about Villeneuve’s comments and most of those who know won’t even care. This makes no difference whatsoever.

    Official Discussion – Dune (International Release) [SPOILERS] from movies

    Here’s the Dune thread on Reddit for the International Release. Lots of reviews there. Not overwhelming positive reviews (people complaining about the movie being frustating and lacking emotion), which is worrying because this is basically the demographic I imagined the movie would be unanimity

    I literally had written a post about how eh, it’s fine, most people aren’t on Twitter and probably don’t care anyway but that wasn’t actually my point. Somehow that post has disappeared…

    It’s not just about box office or auteurship or whatever. I just don’t understand why one would have to inflame that section of very online MCU fans. He’s… probably like the 30th director to say something like this, it always causes something of a dust-up, and for him especially he has a movie coming out and I just don’t understand why he would do PR like this, because it spreads from Twitter to headlines in publications and then Reddit and…….ugh, of course it won’t prevent people from going but my point was totally different: there is zero utility to him saying this right now. ZERO. We’re literally all agreed it won’t affect box office, but lol you just jumped down my throat about the fact that maybe just maybe it’s not a good idea regardless.

    Why? Not for box office reasons but because the very-online folx who do know get VERY salty and then they go hard on dunking on Dune when they wouldn’t bothered before. I’m not saying that has an impact on OSCARS or whatever, it’s just not SMART! I’m sorry, it is is just not.

    Funny thing about this is that this is basically the negative reactions we got from festival audiences as well. So…why Denis felt the need to double down on his “auteur-ness” when that’s precisely the problem (it’s “TOO auteur-y, TOO slow”—I don’t know how I feel bc I haven’t watched the film I’m just saying other people said this a lot).

    I love him to bits but it’s a dumbass move for PR. It just is.

    Me too lol. I just hope it’s both those things and a substantial intellectual achievement.

    An audience having criticisms for a movie is not worrying to me, the reception is pretty obviously positive, whether on reddit, Letterboxd, or various regional imdb knockoffs.

    Oh c’mon you can enjoy Marvel movies and still admit they’re all mostly the same thing. There’s nothing elitist about that. Elitism is saying these movies don’t have a right to exist, which I don’t see anybody doing.

    Hey I was mystified by who the post was meant for, because even most hardcore cinephiles I know would say exactly what you said, so clearly the target was some REALLY EXTREME PERSON (a complete elitist) that…hates every single franchise film and never watches a single one? I don’t know anybody like that.

    Also, it’s just kinda weird to blame any GD user for not strenuously arguing that Eternals should win BP. Regardless of our opinion, AMPAS still hasn’t embraced MCU films with the exception of Black Panther so…….of course we’re not predicting them on a predictions website lol

    I agree with you but still the idea that these contenders all have their weakness sounds so depressing lol.

    Don’t all contenders every year all have their weaknesses?

    Hear me out: TPOTD’s score isn’t that good actually.

    No, really. It’s very pretty, and Jonny Greenwood is the GOAT (Radiohead is…yeah my fave band of all time). But it’s just not very well-timed for the emotional highs and lows. Some of the best scenes had no score, and I know they were meant to be needle-drop scenes without scores, but it’s such an accessible film, I almost would’ve preferred an approach closer to The Hours (one of my favorite scores of all time), but less sentimental because TPOTD isn’t as sentimental (but it IS, or one character is)

    I almost feel like there’s…nothing in the most tender moments of the film, and there’s quite a few tender moments, but they’re rarely highlighted by the score imo. It’s not the writing, it’s the score 😐

    E.g.:
    – BH-scarf-scene
    – The very end of Governor-visit-scene is v important but I bet you don’t even remember it
    – Rose-Peter-star-scene
