Still annoyed they'll first wait for the first movie's (which apparently covers about half of the book) success before committing to a sequel, though...

Yeah, I'm worried about that--especially with Covid and all. It would be a great shame if the rest of it did not get made. I'm re-reading Dune now. It's a marvel of world-building, and that's a big part of what makes it so great. But it also casts a spell that keeps you reading to see what happens. The movie, if it works, should do the same. If the novel doesn't work its magic, you put it down, but people will sit through a movie regardless, especially if they're paid to write about it. If you're focusing on the illogic of the 'thopters like that reviewer did, I'd say definitively that the magic isn't working.
