When I have kids I will definitely show them this movie. Stunning visuals and audio. Really moody. I really liked Zendaya’s performance.

Was the shot of the ear crawling with bugs a nod to Lynch? I hope so.

Definitely not perfect. The main problem is that the story doesn’t fit into the movie format. It deserves to be a high budget TV series. Hell, they could have done both: one compressed movie (this one) and an expanded version consisting of multiple episodes. Movie theatres could show both. I wonder if they’ve considered that.

I was also disappointed to see Stilgar flattened into a caricature. He was funny because of it but I’m not sure the chuckles were worth underusing Javier Bardem.

I guess I should hush up and read the books.
