The Breakdown of Dune (2021)

For anyone who has been listening to The Movie Breakdown for a decent amount of time, you know that we don't always get excited about the bug studio tentpoles like other sites or shows. We tend to lean towards stuff with original stories or dare to stand-out as different from all the other big releases. But we have been excited about the big studio event picture, Dune.

The main reason is that it is being directed by one of our favourite current filmmakers, Denis Villeneuve. He is an exciting filmmaker because he dares to make very different big budget sci-fi thrillers, and you walk away feeling you experiences something unique and groundbreaking.

Does Dune measure up to those kinds of expectations? Well, you can find out this week as we review, discuss and dive-deep into this space opera. We also briefly talk about the 1984 original and the legacy of this story.

As always, we have blast talking movies, and if your enjoyed it too then please help us out by spreading the word to other movie lovers.
