reviews are out. it's currently sitting at a very promising 78 on Metacritic. but Owen Gleibermann of Variety, my most trusted film critic, gives it a more mixed review and says it runs out of steam in the second half.


I'm starting to worry it might be a little too mercurial and not overly interesting, like Blade Runner 2049. Points for not making stupid movies, but I'm not sure Villeneuve is a natural blockbuster director...

Yeah I’ve seen a few other middling reviews. Splitting it into 2 seems to have been a mistake.

Although it is fun to see the Dune fans having meltdowns on Twitter over any negative reviews.

The majority of reviews so far have been outstanding.

I also thought they'd filmed the whole movie and have just broke it up into two parts but they haven't even filmed part 2 yet. :o

It's out in 17 countries or so already. They're doing the US last because of complicated film festival tie ins plus the piracy boost of its simultaneous release on the dreaded HBO Max.

I loved Arrival so much that I have hope for this, but I do worry that all signs point to a ponderous bore :(
