I love the story of Dune so, so much — which is not really a sentence I would have anticipated writing when I first tried reading the book about a decade ago.  For whatever reason, I didn’t really connect with Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi novel back then. Maybe it wasn’t

Dune: Part 2 – Initial thoughts

I feel like a large portion of my Geek experience in recent history has been spent waiting for Dune. First, Dune: Part One was delayed from its planned 2020 release to 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Then, Dune: Part Two was delayed from 2023 to 2024, due to the
