'Dune: Part Two' finally delivers what Herbert's novel deserves

Denis Villeneuve stuck the landing.

I've only followed Villeneuve's filmmaking career since "Sicario" in 2015 - he's been directing feature films since 1998 - but every film he's made from "Sicario" forward, including 2016's "Arrival," 2017's "Blade Runner 2049" and 2021's "Dune," has been virtually flawless.

"Dune: Part Two" is no exception, as Villeneuve gives Frank Herbert's 1965 epic science fiction novel the cinematic adaptation it's always deserved. Even brilliant auteurs that include Alejandro Jodorowsky and David Lynch could never quite pull it off.

Yes, because Frank was an autodidact...
