Fire the Canon

We hosted a watch party of the (spoilers) BIZARRE 1980s Dune, and then separately watched the 2021 version, and now we’re here to tell you all what we think.  Theo loves David Lynch’s grotesquerie. Jess is Judge Judy.  Rachel shares her favorite group of white guys.  Jackie doesn’t want to talk about Dune ever again.  Topics include: Saw, torture porn vs. food porn, Biblical-level disgusting, anti-gravity belts, hot pot, Timmy Chevrolet, Daddy Leto, Mimosa Mike, Ursula K. Le Guin, NK Jemisin, Duncan Utah, Ned Stark vibes, a very happy old man, The Lord of the Rings again, the Zendaya hype train, NFT drama, cancel culture, old book drama, The Black Witch, and Veronica Roth.
