Whilst writing this review for Dune, which is one of my childhood (Sci-fi Fantasy) movies.
i cant help but think that viewing the movie in our current time. the movie definatly begins to look outdated and was produced in a certain era, this shines in the movie dune. and should be seen as such.
The movie utilises a star cast with nowdays old skool actors like (Jurgen prochnov, Patrick Steward, Kyle Macalahan, Sean Young, Leonard Ciminow, Brad Dourif, and of course mucisian Sting). The music for this movie was also scored by Toto, and they did an epic job on it for that time, I think the music is also party what reflects the Sci-fi Setting in this movie.)
The story takes it time to be set up by the writers an producers, and introduces us to all the players in the Dune universe, This movie came in the wake of the first "Star wars", trilogy. and in comparison i did a poor job. This is also where the largest mistake for the average movie viewer lies. Dune isn't a simple Sci-Fi Aktion movie, It has layers of story telling, and tackles issues as faith, Perceverence, loyalty.
Whilst the movie has a decent cast there where some moments i definatly think there was quit a bit of overacting, however on thing should be noted that this movie could be viewed in some way as fantasy movie, and in this genre there is quit a bit of bolstering and overacting to reach dramatich heigts. For Dune the same counts in that regard.
For me as viewer this will definatly remain a childhood favorite.
dont understand the film at all, didnt read the original novel, but the scenes are really well built as to 1980s
A classic, but the one that got to cut up the script and toss out the scenes that just did not cut it, tossed out the wrong ones.
