Wasted Potential

This is almost impossible to review without spoilers so beware. Some minor DEI with the Asian female character who's acting is not very good at all. The black owner I wouldn't really call a DEI hire as his acting is good and he pulls the character off very well. This resorts to some cheap jump scares though there are some genuinely creepy moments. Bad writing however ruins any potential this had. Who wanders over to pool with a sinkhole alone in the middle of the night and leans out over a loose handrail? Spoilers!!!-- This is not a haunted house movie. Once the twist happens the writing really takes a hit. If she is so dangerous as soon as the Doc spotted her why would you not call the police instantly instead of calling two hospital orderlies and then going into a closed room alone with her. This woman who looks like she weighs 90lbs at best manages to overpower and kill two large male orderlies at the same time. The ending really makes no sense. How is she running the place now? Nobody came looking for all those missing people, including the owner of the INN? Where did all the money come from for the INN renovations? A lot of early potential is completely wasted by the end.

No wokeness that I could see.

It's a remake of a cult classic that was very campy. The over-the-top, fights breaking out every night, idiots with knives, etc. is expected. It's fiction, enjoy it. That said, I was pleasantly surprised. Dalton (Jake G.) had some great one-liners. Connor McGregor broke new ground in character acting. JG's history with Brokeback (which I only heard about) is hard to ignore, especially when he has the blue, equal sign tattooed on his neck. If that's a woke element, it's the only one I noticed. It's worth a watch in my opinion.

Is the novel the standard? If so, it missed some important points.

Part one was reasonably well done with the blatant and unnecessary substitution of Dr. Kynes. After all, the original story has women controlling the political and social structures through the Bene Gesserit order. Also, the Fremen women are just as vicious fighters as their men. in the book. Part Two has a more troubling change. Chani isn't the devoted supporter of Paul that the novel portrayed. The novel has Chani gladly accepting her role as Paul's consort while he's married, in name only, to the Emperor's daughter. This movie has Paul intentionally leaving her behind to fulfill his role as Kwisatz Haderach and Chani growing more bitter. The movie ends with the implication of some major conflict between Paul and Chani. The movie also left out the characters of Paul and Chani's son as well as Jessica's daughter. That changed things. I'm not impressed.
