Apparently this Villeneuve film's only the first half of the book and there's a planned follow up to cover the second.
I wish it was more loopy. Their take on Cloud Atlas was properly mad.I mean it's pretty terrible. I wasn't really impressed with the visuals but the terrible acting is there in spades.
I do concede it has a a kind of deranged loopiness and I always want to support people taking big, ambitious swings with original material
well his visual style is more taut, functional, sleek which can veer into tasteful car ad territory it's trueI think you're right about JV, he doesn't seem to have much spark but his things look good
right, a prequel I believeThey're doing a new Dune series too -- Dune: The Sisterhood,
"TV series set in the 'Dune' universe which centers on the lives of the Bene Gesserit."
I forgot he did Sicario... I hated that on first viewing but caught it on telly the other day and had to admit that there were moments of genuine tension despite the slight story and "Bring me the head of Alfredo Garcia" ending. Which I didn't enjoy much in BMTHOAGwell his visual style is more taut, functional, sleek which can veer into tasteful car ad territory it's true
that's why I think he does better with a more or less straightforward thriller like Sicario where it's all about execution (no pun intended)
if you can leave aside that movie's fairly ridiculous depiction of the drug war on both sides of the border
It's sad what having a famous artist in the family does to everyone else. So many instances of relatives playing hardball with academics, bickering amongst themselves over rights and royalties. Joyce's grandson was apparently a complete nightmare to deal with.I just hope Frank Herbert's lame son is involved with all of this as minimally as possible
he and another hack co-wrote like a million awful prequels (and even worse, 2 sequels to original series based on Frank Herbert's notes)
bro I mean, you have toSo, who's actually read Dune? I haven't.
I think Prisoners is a solid suspense film. Not saying there haven't been better ones since, but none come to mind now.Is Villeneuve any good? I know the stuff he's done, but I've never seen any of it.
