Yup, great vision. Although we'll have to see if they can keep up the quality for part 2. Endings are always the hardest part to get right, and this film kindof punted that.

Sure, but at least it's more coherent than the earlier version. Things are more or less explained and followable.

There's a longer version of the 1984 Dune with a helpful prologue that sets everything up very nicely.

Just watched Dune last night. Was ok but a bit too artsy-fartsy for me. It assumed you had read the books and knew everything already, but for those of us that haven't it was a bit hard to follow at times.

For free on HBO it's not bad but I would have been irritated had I paid $15 to see it in the theaters.

I liked the 90s Dune just fine, but no question the new one is FAR superior. Little things like having well differentiated actors that are perfectly matched to their characters makes all the difference. Jason Momoa as Duncan Idaho is so pitch-perfect, and so well differentiated from Josh Brolin as Gurney Halleck, even though they're both tough-guy soldier characters. That kind of casting makes the story effortless to follow.

Contrast that to the guy who played Duncan Idaho in the 1984 version... Very generic actor who could have just as easily been slotted in for any other character in the story:

Yep. Also no mention of why nobody uses computers in Dune, but I thought it was cool how there wasn't a single "thinking machine" (computer) around. They were outlawed after the Butlerian Jihad 10K years before. It was a nice touch in the movie.

He's actually a decent actor but the 84 Dune was gutted by the studio. The original runtime was 3.5 hours and they cut it down to 2h 17 min. I imagine a lot of Duncan Idaho was left on the cutting room floor. His character was barely onscreen in that version.

Really wish David Lynch would revisit and recut the film to his original vision...

The Forgotten Battle on Netflix.

It was about a WWII battle near the Port of Antwerp in the Netherlands that I didn't know much about and thought it was pretty well done. Enjoyed it from start to finish, only real complaint I had was the sound mix seemed a bit rough in some parts with a lot of ambient bass. Could not always make out the dialogue. Could have been my home theater system though. Had to turn the bass down and turn up the center channel speaker.

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou . . . 7/10

This was Bill Murray's next movie after Lost in Translation*. I didn't like it when it came out. I don't like all of Wes Anderson's stuff, but I now have a lot more respect for him and probably movie-making generally.

It's on Prime now.

Watched a few movies: Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin, Dune (2021), and The Night House.

Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin was probably the most polished and well made Paranormal Activity movie but in every other area it fell flat. Also, didn't really feel like a Paranormal Activity movie. Might be the weakest entry.

Dune (2021) was good. However, not "The Lord of the Rings" good as some are saying.

The Night House was awesome. Loved this movie. Nice mix of mild horror and mystery.

The movie was kind of a mess. Still entertaining enough to be watchable.

It takes almost 20 minutes to get to the present storyline. The present storyline takes place in progress immediately after the events of the previous movie. None of the previous 20 minutes of backstory helps remind us what happened in the previous movie. And it's not like a slasher movie needs to be propped up by a lot of backstory and lore.

The whole mob thing in the hospital was really out of place. Halloween movies are usually about victims getting stalked and killed in a small neighbourhood.

Suddenly, they have a mob of angry citizens chasing someone mindlessly through the hospital, which is neither scary nor suspenseful.

It seemed like they were trying to make some profound point about mob mentality and fear. Or that Michael Myers wins by spreading fear and he's really not that dangerous.

But then in the end he ends up getting beaten down by a mob, but then ends up being superhuman and singlehandedly kills the mob. If something like that is around, then being fearful is probably the correct reaction.

Sure, it's sort of cool to see him take on a group of people at once like some killing machine. But it kind of ruins that whole ambiguity that the series sort of had as to whether he's just a normal person that's a maniac, or if he's some supernatural monster.

"I know what you did last summer" (1997)
7.5/10

I'm not a horror fan but decided to watch a couple of that type recently. This one was well written, the story had some good twists, and the actors all did just fine. Speaking of fine, hello, Jennifer Hewitt and Sarah Michelle Gellar...

"The uninvited" (1944)
7/10

It's a proper ghost story with some truly spooky moments. The twists are guessable along the way but it's still spooky. The acting is mostly fine.

The Haunting (1963)

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0057129/

It wasn’t ‘entertaining’ as much as it was interesting watching how they tried to use camera angles, lights/shadows and dialogue to try to create what we take for granted in the age of CGI/FX etc. I thought it was a well done film.

So I just had to watch "I still know what you did last summer." (1998)

1/10

Dumb. Very uncreative and boring, oh and dumb. Jennifer was super fine but that's the only thing worth seeing here. But then they made a third movie? And now a TV series?? Really?? Why?!

If you do watch the third one, you're going to need to adjust your rating scale because there's not enough separation between 1 and 0.
