Vlog Ep. 28: Dune (2020) Trailer Reaction

So Tobie and I stayed up late to catch the world debut of the first full trailer for the new Dune movie by Denis Villeneuve after mistakenly hoping it would go live at 9AM Eastern Time instead of 9AM Pacific Time. It was our first time to do two shows in one night and our first attempt at a reaction video.

I am a very passionate fan of Frank Herbert's Dune books and I know I probably sound overly critical and nitpicky in this video, but hey it's a live reaction so I get to rant a bit. But know that my criticism stems from a position of love for this story and the hope that the movie helps to introduce the franchise to new fans and get more people to explore this fascinating world that Herbert created. I'm not sure if the trailer does a great job of selling the idea of Dune to non-fans, so ultimately this is more trailer criticism than movie criticism. In the end, I'm still going to watch the movie when it comes out and I'm going to hope for the best.
