DUNE PART TWO - Power Comes From The Sands

Finally saw the Dune movie adaptation but started with Part 2, yet I still got the gist of how this universe works and the complex characters and world building made by Frank Herbert. And from many reviews, Dune Part One is critically acclaimed for its ensemble of great actors, production, and also an expansive movie franchise lead by its director Denis Villeneuve.

Dune Part Two continues the struggle of Paul Atreides (Timothée), to learn the ways of the dessert planet Arrakis which is known for its "spice" production and coveted by the empire. Here we see the path of having the prophesized leader by the Fremmen (Lisan al-Gaib) is coming true with Paul. His rise to power and influence along with his mother now called Reverend Mother, rises tensions across the planet along with its citizens and warrior tribes. 

Though I have not watched the first film, the lore and intricacies of part two opened my curiosity about Dune which led me to watch videos about the story of Dune and the possible future they would make. The aesthetics of the film may involve a lot of sand and desert but seeing it on IMAX gives its more justice in understanding the movie. 

Dune: Part Two acclaimed by critics as blockbuster masterpiece, debuting with a 97% Rotten Tomatoes critics’ score.

Rave reviews are flowing in as critics praise Dune: Part Two, Denis Villeneuve’s highly anticipated action spectacle. With a 97% certified fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the critics’ consensus is that Dune: Part Two is visually thrilling and narratively epic.

Continuing the streak from its predecessor, Dune: Part Two lands with a success for reviewers. The Independent writes, “Dune: Part Two, like its predecessor, is a work of total sensory and imaginative immersion.” Total Film adds the movie to the hall of beloved sequels, saying, “However you cut it, Villeneuve wrangles coherence from Herbert’s unruly elements to deliver a sequel that ranks alongside The Dark Knight, The Empire Strikes Back – and Blade Runner 2049.”

About “Dune: Part Two”

“Dune: Part Two” will explore the mythic journey of Paul Atreides as he unites with Chani and the Fremen while on a warpath of revenge against the conspirators who destroyed his family. Facing a choice between the love of his life and the fate of the known universe, he endeavors to prevent a terrible future only he can foresee. 

Big-screen spectacle “Wonka,” is “the perfect Christmas movie,” says director Paul King

When director Paul King, known for the family-favorite Paddington movies, was a child, one of the first books he read was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by beloved children’s book author Roald Dahl. “I loved Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” says King. “I read it again and again until the pages fell out of the cover. I remember loving the wild comedy, all the crazy characters, and the magic and mayhem of the chocolate factory.”

Years later, King would read it again from the perspective of an adult – and he found new things to love about the story! “When David [Heyman, producer] mentioned the idea of making a Wonka movie, I read it again and realized it also has an incredibly rich, almost Dickensian emotional core,” shares the director. “Charlie is such a kind, decent little boy and his family’s poverty causes them such suffering. The fact he goes on to inherit the factory, a more wonderful gift than he could ever have dreamt, had me in floods of tears – and the prospect of trying to make a film which captured Dahl’s spirit was too exciting to turn down.”

“Wonka” serves up an early Christmas treat! Release date moved up to December 6 in PH, one week ahead of the U.S.

Step into a world of pure imagination, and get ready for an early Christmas present! 🍫🎁🎄 The release date for the much-anticipated “Wonka,” starring Timothée Chalamet as the beloved chocolate-maker, has been moved up to December 6 (formerly January 2024 yet) in international markets, including the Philippines.

Director Denis Villeneuve provided some insights on the new image, sharing, “It’s Paul’s first contact with the deep desert, where he’s mesmerised by it. He has a strange feeling of being home.

Lady Bird - Teen Issues and More

Who says coming of age stories are passe? This Oscar-nominated film Lady Bird  is written and directed by Greta Gerwig which is also her direvtorial debut. The film is probably a great achievement for women as it was nominated for Best Picture and Best Director by the Academy Awards.

Lady Bird takes place in Sacramento with Christine "Lady Bird"  McPherson looking forward for liberal college beyond the usual. While she waits for her application, she continues to study as a high school student in an Catholic School. There is various moments of fun with the scenes that are similar to many high school experience, myself included.

This made it fun to watch and connects to the audience with its direct approach to issues, letting them expand into drama without doing so many movie elements, in short it is raw yet shot beautifully. Lady Bird is not the only one on the spotlight as the characters around her like Julie, Danny and Kyle with their own dramas in life which are subtly funny yet essential for the story.
