Dune Part 2

I really enjoyed part one of the recent films of DUNE, honestly I have not seen the old ones, so I can’t compare. I don’t like how old films represented the future (except Star Wars) though they obviously made the best out of the available tools.

In the first film, I was amazed at how they managed to create such incredible recreations of the different great houses, how well it was filmed, how great the technologies (ornithipters, protective shields…) are, the story…

Of course, the second film still is great in all those regards, but it seems to me that they tried cramming to much of the story in a single film (whis is understandable) and there’s no “wow factor”, but that may just be me. I feel as I were getting used to amazing things and they no longer have such the impact that they used to have.

All in all, I give it a 4/5.
