I don't express it every week, but I certainly appreciate all of your hard work with the RoundUp every week. There's never a week that I don't look through the list.RoundUppers! Welcome to 2022! Happy New Year!
This week marks my 18th anniversary of compiling the RoundUp. It all began rather unceremoniously back at the start of 2004…and continues rather unceremoniously today!
I've surprised how many people have said this. I even have a friend who is a big fan of the book and refused to watch the first film at all. He wants to wait and see both parts back-to-back for the first time. I had no experience with Dune at all before I went to see the movie, and I have no idea where it goes from here. I would have appreciated, perhaps, a little more of an endpoint on the movie rather than the abrupt ending that we got. But I enjoyed the film so much that I'm really glad I went to see it in the theater even if there is a long wait until we get the next one.I really enjoyed Dune, but now that I know Part Two is going to get made, I'm going to hold off and wait for the inevitable bundle release of both parts. Hopefully physical media will still be a thing by then.
