Well, the verdict is in from the USofA (as it already has been from the rest of the world) and Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of Dune appears to work, even on skeptics like Jim who have been resistant to it’s Lynch-tainted charms for decades. But it is any wonder? When a movie looks this good and displays such an overwhelming amount of creativity, you just can’t help but enjoy it. Check out our spoiler-free thoughts on the movie and then, if you’re a club member, stick around for our full spoiler review.
Jim and A.Ron have seen Darren Aronofsky’s newest film, Mother!, and A.Ron hates it while Jim isn’t sure. But it’s rated 78% on Rotten Tomatoes, so don’t let us put you off it. It’s a piece of art, and it makes you feel things, that’s for sure. Oh, by the way, if it hasn’t been clear, me — that is to say, A.Ron — is the guy who writes all of these little stub articles that no one reads and I’m still kind of angry and raw that I sat through this film, so I’m going to see myself out. Enjoy the free part of the movie review and trailer talk, and if you want to hear us try to decompress the film, there’s that too but only if you’re a Club Member. See you next week for Kingsmen 2: The Golden Circle.
