Against my better judgement I watched Dune Episode 1.

Looked good, thoroughly enjoyed it: but I have no idea how anyone that hasn't read the book will have had a clue what was going on.

I was tickled that there was a complaint from the middle eastern and northern African actors guild (or whatever it is called) complained that the fremen were too white/ black. Really?

I don't quite understand how a film set on a distant planet in the distant future is a film about Middle East culture.

I've tried to explain to the family that Dune was a hard watch in the past (without prior reading) and I can't imagine much would have changed with the remake. Nonetheless, the high scoring of the film with critics and the public have got the family convinced.

Wish me luck!
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.
