SPOILER WARNING. If you don't want to know how the movie goes, well skip to video 2 in the series .. which is either here because you're in the future, or coming soon, because you're in the past. Go see it regardless - Dune Part 1 is worth your 20 bucks.I just watched the new Dune - Denis Villeneuve's 2021 movie with my partner; and realised that although I LOVED IT, she hadn't a clue what was going on. Thinking about it and talking to a few other friends, I realised there was a world of people who needed a TLDR. TLDR: Dune Part 1:A beginning is a very delicate time. Know then, that it is the year 10191. The known universe is ruled by the Padisha Emperor Shaddam IV, my father. In this time, the most precious substance in the Universe is the spice melange. The spice extends life. The spice expands consciousness. The spice is vital to space travel. The Spacing Guild and its navigators, who the spice has mutated over four-thousand years, use the orange spice gas, which gives them the ability to fold space. That is, travel to any part of the Universe without moving. Oh yes, I forgot to tell you. The spice exists on only one planet in the entire Universe. A desolate, dry planet with vast deserts. Hidden away within the rocks of these deserts are a people known as the Fremen, who have long held a prophecy, that a man would come, a messiah, who would lead them to true freedom. The planet is Arrakis. Also known as Dune.Whilst putting that together, I realised that actually Frank Herbert's Dune is one of the BEST examples of how to put together a decent D&D campaign that's compelling, provides characters a reason to be together and a series of adversities to overcome. That'll be the Game Theory: Dune Part 1 - Part 2!

1. David Lynch didn't make Naked Lunch - that was David Cronenberg. No offence intended.
2. Everyone is surprised I don't know who Zendaya is. I'm sorry Zendaya, you're amazing though.
3. I incorrectly refer to Lady Jessica's husband (Duke Leto) at 19.40.
4. 21.42 I mean 'Spice Harvester'
