    Ms. Korolova gets around...

    Story and plot trump graphics and visuals, everytime. Good story is why the Original Trilogy of Star Wars is better than the Prequels.


    The new Dune film does have a good story and plot, just not as detailed as you would have preferred being a fan of the novel. The new Dune film has far more story and plot than Star Wars (A New Hope).


    You would like to have more of the intrigue and side plots of the novel. I OTOH would have loved to see more ornithopter flight scenes and dunescapes. I want to watch a film, not a novel. I prefer to read those.

    I would have thought that someone like you who enjoys video games would have understood that story and content trumps visuals, everytime.


    Perhaps for you, but not for me. I watch films for the visual storytelling and spectacle. Games, TV series, and books are different media that lend themselves to telling a story in different ways.


    This film tells the story of Paul Atreides. Everything else from the novel is peripheral, and expendable unless it directly affects the story of Paul. Compromises must be made.

    ... too much pertinent stuff missing...




    The Mini Series is a lot better.


    That stuff belongs in a (mini) series, not a film. In a film (even two) there's only time for exploring the core story/conflict of a novel, especially one with such extensive worldbuilding as Dune. Everything peripheral can only be hinted at or briefly referenced in dialog.


    I agree that I'd much prefer if Denis Villeneuve had done a Peter Jackson and made three "films" which really are three three-hour episodes of the same novel, equivalent to 9 one-hour TV episodes.


    We get two films, and they must be made like proper films: a visual spectacle.
