The Cyclone Bomb, i.e. Nor'easter brushed us yesterday. Not a lot of rain here. But wind? Yes, with some fairly strong gusts. If the temperatures were colder, this would ripping the leaves from the trees. The wind's supposed to die down today. I don't really care since I'm scheduled for an 8 hour shift at the store. Though from my point of view, the wind is good because my leaves blow across the street into my neighbor's yard.
I went to see "Dune" last evening. I thoroughly enjoyed it. When buying my ticket, I told the guy at the concession stand that I had read the book over 45 years ago and received a blank stare. He told me he'd seen it and thought it was fine. Translation: there was serious narrative in between the action sequences in which the dialogue is important. Words have meaning. Their purpose is to move the story forward rather than loosely set the scene for the next car chase / fight scene between the good guys and the villains. This film is epic.
I loved Dune. I wish I would have seen it in a theater tough. Some of the takes deserve a big screen.ReplyDelete
If Villeneuve keeps it up, it's going to be epic. When I saw the pace, I knew there's going to be at least one more movie. The characters are fantastic. Challamet was a surprise, because I only remembered him from CBYN. Can't wait for the second part.
The insurrectionists are afraid. That Rolling Stone piece should be the first of several that bring them to light. Get ready for them to go 'I was not there' to 'I was there but it's justified'. They all should be expelled.
Dune is an epic, you've only seen part 1 of the first book.Delete
That damn cyclone bomb wreaked havoc with my coiffure yesterday.ReplyDelete
And we we believe No and his friends...they tell us another...lying bastards.
Are you saying the wind did a dodo on your do?Delete
You're the second person today I see recommending Dune so maybe I'll have to give it a shot. It doesn't appear to be the kind of movie I'd usually like BUT there are some seriously hunky men to feast your eyes on aren't there!ReplyDelete
I'll agree, the cast is very well rounded.Delete
I remember one of my classmates in 7th grade reading Dune. He, back then, was probably one of the coolest people I know. I ran into him in college (he left our school after junior high). And he still had that cool vibe about him.ReplyDelete
I've been telling people I went to see it and you have no idea how many are saying "I hear it's great!." Many, many, many people read the book and no matter who you were, it gave you that cool vibe.Delete
