I believe it was the great Hayden Christiansen playing the tragic role of Anakin Skywalker—reading the scripted words of George Lucas and Jonathan Hales—that said “I don’t like sand. It’s coarse, and rough, and irritating, and it gets everywhere.” Truer words have never been spoken, both by a Jedi and by the common man. That chestnut of observational knowledge can fully describe the reactions of the Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast, sponsored and supported by the Ruminations Radio Network, to Dune. The big hitter from Warner Bros. is playing in regular theaters, IMAX-level venues, and right in your own home on HBO Max.
As Will and Don love to say, come for the shared challenge and tirade and stay for the mutual love and respect for the fun movies encapsulate. Thank you so much for your captive audience and social media participation! Enjoy our new podcast episode!
Listen to this episode from Cinephile Hissy Fit on Spotify. For our 33rd episode, 25YL film critics, bullfighting dads, and sunburnt school teachers Will Johnson and Don Shanahan swim to get spicy sand in every podcast crevice in critiquing Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune.” This was a polarizing challenge for both hosts with big words and bigger thoughts.
