    I've had some experience with amber (which is basically fossilized sap), though. There's quite a bit of it on the island in Denmark where we've had our summer house for 40 years. So I've picked up a few of those rocks. Not a lot of insects in them, sadly.

    Ridley was truly pissed that The Last Duel failed at the Box office and blamed the audience:

    Great cast, visuals, and soundtrack. The whole thing is dripping with style. 
     
    There are a few racially based jokes that are made at the expense of whites, and are laugh out loud funny, one is dialog and the other is visual.
     
    Very delightful.

    I don't understand this comparison.  "Well this cow shit doesn't smell nearly as bad as this horse shit" is not a positive argument?  If I want to hear good music being made today by aging 70s rock stars, I can listen to Robert Plant, I don't have to listen to Rod Stewart's risible crap.
     
    It's new and it's great!

    Farscape (1999-2004) - Chris Neal & Braedy Neal (SubVision) [Season 1], Guy Gross [Seasons 2-4 + TPK]
    ost1 = Farscape Music From The Original Soundtrack
    ost2 = Farscape The Peacekeeper Wars Original Soundtrack
    ost3 = Farscape Classics Volume One
    ost4 = Farscape Classics Volume Two
    ost5 = Farscape Classice Volume Three
    ost6 = Farscape 20th Anniversary Edition
     
    Note: currently work in progress - I haven't double checked the order of the material within episodes on osts 1, 2, or 6 yet - ost2 in particular may not be in order.
    Based on the back of the cd case it's also possible some of the material from ost1 is edited suites. I'm fairly confident all material on osts 3, 4, and 5 is in the correct order

    In the last week, having had no prior experience to Dune whatsoever, I watched David Lynch's Dune. I enjoyed it quite a bit, I didn't quite grasp 50% of what was happening and the pacing takes an absolute nose-dive in the last third, but I still felt Lynch's touch and there was some wonderfully inventive concepts and the patented twisted Lynch weirdness (I laughed so hard at the scene with the cat). Gorgeous visuals as well, the set and costume and creature design was next level, with only a few shots feeling very clearly they were done on the cheap even for the time.

    Then I watched Villeneuve's the following night.

    I found it incredibly meh. To the point that I don't want this to achieve enough success to set the precedence that this is what we should get more of, it contains nearly everything that un-enthuses me about modern blockbusters. I'm surprised this was a Villeneuve movie honestly, granted I've only seen Bladerunner 2049 and Arrival, but other than the strangely large and sparse rooms with fog machines I couldn't feel much of his vision at all.

    So then I re-watched Lynch's Dune. I grasped about 70% of what was happening this time and it definitely contributed to my enjoyment, I had initially written off the second half entirely but this re-watch made me realize there's some really good scenes in that second half that are just missing in-between content to be really effective. My appreciation for Kyle MacLaughlan's Paul Atreides was firmly cemented, the precocious noble-like character was far more interesting of a performance than the dime-a-dozen angsty teen protagonist I found in Villeneuve's Dune. MacLaughlan was surprisingly likeable in the role for the kind of character Paul is, the gentleness he brings makes the moments that he stands up and shouts as a leader all the more powerful. Despite that, the last third I still found to be a bit of a rushed mess.

    Then I watched some videos on the behind the scenes of the production, and realized why exactly this movie ended up the way it is which lead to me a surprising discovery - an extended cut was made. However, it was rather haphazardly thrown together for TV, with the additional content not bothering to rotoscope the 'spice eyes'. That's when I heard of 'Dune Alternate Edition Redux', a 2 hours and 57 minutes fan cut that incorporates extended edition and deleted scenes footage, with re-editing, billed as the closest thing to Lynch's original vision as we'll ever get.

    And my god, it was magnificent. Now I grasped 95% of what was happening. It completely transformed the movie and utterly fixed the pacing of the second half. Some of those extra scenes were amazing, and I got to see versions of some of scenes that were in Villeneuve's Dune but not the original cut of Dune 1984. I can now say I do not prefer a single thing about Villeneuve's Dune compared to Lynch's.

    Your moviegoing experience does not need me to visit a movie theatre in a different province or country in order for you to have a better experience.

    It needs to. The titular character is picking up the pieces of Jabba Desilijic Tiure left scattered over the Pit of Carkoon, and moving those pieces' story forward.
