Dune

Dune ★★★★

Although technically incomplete and mainly serving as setup for an eventual Part Two, on its own, Dune works remarkably well as a piece of blockbuster fare. While the main cast certainly brings a lot to the table and turn in some pretty compelling performances, its Villeneuve's direction that really brings it all together, imbuing the material with a stunning sense of scale and splendor that fully immerses you into its rich and expansive world and keeps you hooked in throughout its lengthy runtime. If this is anything to go off of, I'm more than looking forward to seeing what the next installment of has in store.
