Dune 2

I finally saw Dune 2 in the theater. Speaking as someone who grew up with the novels, I thought it was a brilliant film. It did a much better job than most cinematic epics of translating book to screen, retaining the epic sweep of Herbert’s vision while adding its own brand of movie magic.

Although every time Christopher Walken showed up on screen, part of my mind just kept saying, over and over, “Walk without rhythm, it won’t attract the worm.”

I am not sure whether that detracted from the movie or, in some weird way, added to it.
