For the first time in almost two years, we went to see a film in the cinema! We had planned to see The French Dispatch, but it wasn't showing at the cinema we were going to. We also wanted to see the new Bond, but Beth hasn't seen all of the previous ones, and while probably not completely necessary, is something we want to finish anyway.
So we saw Dune instead. I really enjoyed it! The world seems a lot more interesting than many other sci-fi/fantasy worlds, with a fair amount of different ideas. It also doesn't try and justify its own internal logic too much; things are just the way they are, and that's that. I enjoyed the story as well - it twists and turns and travels to exciting places. My only worry is that Paul might get a bit too powerful and plot-armour-y, but we'll see.
I'm excited for the next movie - I might even give the book a try again.
