This week we’re traveling to the desert planet of Arrakis to cover Denis Villeneuve’s latest sci-fi epic, Dune. We talk about everything we loved about this movie, and how a lot of the things it changed from the book made sense for movie format. We also probably get a ton of lore stuff wrong, so that’s fun!
Also, why we hate the mediocre success of sci-fi epics. (Recorded November 1st, 2021.)
(Also also, here’s a link to the essay mentioned around 55 minutes in. It’s really long, but definitely worth the read if you have the time.)
