Episode #245: Dune (2021)

November 3, 2021

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today Mike and Matt return to their regular-ish schedule. This week the guys hit the theaters and HBO Max to check out Dune (2021) starring Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, and Jason Momoa. Not hardcore Sci-Fi related topics include books, COVID has changed movie production forever, and living in the desert.

What a visually incredible film. Dune (2021) is another masterpiece from Denis Villeneuve. It is just stunning to look at, especially on the big screen. The cast is just as incredible as the cinematography. There are a ton of big names in this film in both big and small roles. The story and it’s pacing is where this film is less successful. If you are not familiar with Dune you run the risk of getting lost especially in the start. It is a Sci-Fi epic much in the vein of Star Wars or Star Trek with a ton to digest. By the end of Dune you will be itching for a resolution as the credits roll. Luckily we will be getting part two in the near future. Matt loved Dune (2021) awarding it a near perfect score of 4.5 out of 5 Reels. Mike also really enjoyed the movie but the story left him confused and frustrated. He awards it 4 out of 5 Reels. 

Next week our next Marvel Cinematic Universe film The Eternals hits theaters! Mike thinks it’s going to be incredible while Matt thinks it’s going to flop. We will find out and report back to you. Thank you for your continued support of our podcast and we will chat at you next week.
