Dune: Part 2 Is An Epic Experience on the Big Screen

Dune: Part 2 is the next chapter in the Dune saga as filmmaker Denis Villeneuve brings his vision of the Frank Herbert novel to the screen. To borrow a line from Anakin Skywalker: “I don’t like sand. It’s coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere.” It’s such a classic line and comes to mind upon seeing a Dune movie on the big screen. Arrakis is a sand planet so I’m not going to…

Masters of the Air: The Best Limited Series in Years

Masters of the Air is the best limited series in years as Playtone and Amblin turn their focus to the Allied airmen during World War II.

The Dead Don’t Die Goes Meta

The Dead Don’t Die may work as a horror comedy but writer-director Jim Jarmusch ultimately aims for both meta and allegorical comedy. “This is going to end badly,” police officer Ronald Peterson (Adam Driver) repeatedly tells police chief Cliff Robertson (Bill Murray).  How does Peterson know this?  He read the full script.  Robertson on the other hand would only receive the pages with his scenes.  While the joke may be self-referential, it ultimately pays off.  Other…
