Dune: Part Two Review

Chaotic review incoming! Wow, it’s been a WHILE since I reviewed a movie, but I’ve come out of hibernation to review the much anticipated Dune: Part Two. My initial impression of Dune: Part One was: ‘for a movie that is mainly standing around, it’s a masterpiece.’ Despite my lack of experience with the source material, and my lack of reason for loving the first, I knew I had to see the second instalment on opening night. Which is exactly what I did! I’m glad I did because Dune: Part Two is categorically better than the first! Read on for my full review, potential mild spoilers with a dose of chaos! Enjoy!   Dune: Part Two picks us where the previous finished, Denis Villeneuve giving us one  continuous story, no flashbacks or memory trickers included. Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin and Javier Bardem are joined by Florence Pugh, Austin Butler, Léa Seydoux, Christopher Walken and Anya Taylor-Joy, the perfect all-star cast.

Countdown to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker + Giveaway

Hi Everyone, this is a very special post! If you have followed Just Another Film Blog since the beginning you will know that I started blogging after attending the midnight screening of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, I'd thought about blogging before but I'd never gained the confidence to take the leap. My biggest fear was that no one would read my posts - how wrong I was, I wrote my first review on The Last Jedi and I hit 500 reads within a week. So, I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has read and supported my blog, it's not always easy and it takes a lot of work but knowing you read and enjoy my posts is so incredibly awarding. So, that brings me to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker! You know how much I love a countdown/list so here is my countdown to The Rise of Skywalker. The film is released on the 19th December here in the UK and I will be attending a midnight screening. In order to prepare for the final movie of the Skywalker saga I have created a countdown, now there's no schedule for watching the movies - just watch them when you can and in the order listed! 

Check out the ten things I'd like to see The Rise of Skywalker: https://thisisjustafilmblog.blogspot.com/2019/04/10-thing-i-want-to-see-in-star-wars.html 

I will be crossing off the movies throughout November and December and you can join in by following me on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram - I'll pop the links below. Make sure you save the countdown and share with all the Star Wars fans you know!! From the footage we have seen so far in the form of trailers it looks like we are in for an epic conclusion the Skywalker Saga and I am beyond excited! The return of Palpatine certainly mixes things up and it's likely he will be looking to destroy the light side. I think it's very clear that The Rise of Skywalker will reference the pervious eight films in th saga, which is why I created the Countdown - it is essential that we watch all the films that have lead to this final moment. I cannot wait to get started.
With the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker it feels like my blog has come full circle and by that I don't mean the blog is ending because I am far from over! But the release of Rise of Skywalker and Just Another Film Blogs second birthday means a GIVEAWAY! This is a first for Just Another Film Blog, the giveaway will begin on the 1st December 2019, I will be giving you the chance to win two tickets to see The Rise of Skywalker at the cinema plus some Star Wars goodies! So, keep an eye out for that. 

I hope to see you all joining in with the Countdown! xx
