    Antonia Pflaum ’27’s spilled popcorn scattered on the movie theater floor.

    If you’re someone who loves action, a good thrill and complex plots, Dune: Part Two is certainly a great candidate for your next watch. This exhilarating and visually stunning tale takes audiences down a roller coaster of emotions – I found myself cheering, biting my nails in anticipation, and even shedding a few tears at times. I bought tickets to the movie at the Showplace Icon theater in West End, St. Louis Park, and got buttered popcorn (which somehow ended up scattered across the floor, see image) and root beer for a reasonable price. The theater was relatively empty, with only a few people scattered across in the rows below us. When the movie (finally) started, I found that the plot was definitely entertaining, but at times a little bit confusing as there were multiple storylines occurring at the same time. Taking place on the unique and dangerous desert planet of Arrakis, it follows the story of Paul Atreides and a group of people called the “Fremen,” and their venture to seek revenge against their enemy, the House Harkonnen. It juggles themes of power and politics, and contains a lot of warfare. If you’re someone who doesn’t like violence, then this movie is likely not for you. Manohla Dargis, a writer for the New York Times, captures the essence of the film best: “The art of cinematic spectacle is alive and rocking in ‘Dune: Part Two,’ and it’s a blast.”

    If the plot of the movie doesn’t capture your interest, then the actors certainly will. Timothée Chalomet delivered an amazing performance as Paul Atreides, along with Zendaya as Chani, his right-hand woman and lover in the film. Other major roles were played by Florence Pugh, Austin Butler, Rebecca Ferguson and Dave Bautista. 

    Overall, the film was very entertaining, and I really enjoyed watching it. So, if you’re looking for a fun pastime this weekend, or even just an excuse to eat popcorn and candy, go check out “Dune: Part Two” at a movie theater nearby!
