Dune: Part One

This is a technical achievement, no doubt. Im sure it will win some Oscars (VFX, sound, score, etc.)


This aged well.

Seems to be sweeping the technical Oscar categories tonight.

Warren Beaty just turned 85. He was one of the guys who always looked young for his age.

I saw Nightmare Alley (2021) last week (or two), I wanted to see it in theaters (which is rare, not huge on going to movie theaters) when it came out last winter, but got too sidetracked. It's on HBOMax.

It was excellent, I since watched the 1947 version (both based on the same book), which was very similiar (some scenes were practically line for line). It makes me want to read the book. The story was not at all what I was expecting from the trailers, but it was very captivating. I may line it up to be my next read (but I say they about a lot of books so who knows).

I enjoyed Anthony Bourdain's shows prior to him suiciding and had mixed feelings about watching the recently released show about him, "Roadrunner."

When I watched it I got a dose of contrasting feelings: joy over taking in the world through his eyes and also sadness seeing his signs of depression and desperation leading to suicide (which it seems was fueled by a failed relationship with an Italian actress who dumped him.)

Such a waste of a good fellow.

I actually saw a movie in the theater today and it's still new.

"EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE"

To say it's not linear is an understatement. To say it's about a visit to the IRS that goes completely off-kilter doesn't explain anything.

At first it looked like it was going to be a foreign film with subtitles but after some intro scenes it is almost completely in English.

I liked it but I can see some people not liking the film if they are looking for traditional style plotting and storyline. I thought it was a bit long though.

If you like going in blind and figuring things out, then this is the film for you.

It's got good reviews. Perhaps even excellent reviews mostly.

I watched a movie called The Lighthouse this week. It was very odd. It got a great rating by movie critics but was a box office dud.
