I loved it, it's such fun. I like that people are seeing it and then talking about it. Like when I took my son and his friends to see Napoleon Dynamite last year, we spent the next six weeks trying to explain it.

[edit]

Synopsis: Paul Atreides arrives at planet Arrakis with his father to take over spice production. He is immediately caught up in a sordid tale of intrigue and betrayal, eventually emerging as the Fremmen messiah.


Reaction: Not for everyone. It can be hard to follow if you haven't read the book. But even so, there are aspects that simply don't work for me. It's a classic, but not a great one.


Personal Rating: 4/10
