I started it.
When Villeneuve allowed the fight choreographer for the Duncan/Sardukar to ignore the established data point of "The SLOW blade penetrates the shield," I got up, made a stiff drink and left so that Laura could finish the movie without my constant complaining. About the point where the Harkonnen/Sardukar assault on Arrakeen began the film turned "Game of Thrones Season 8 bad."
It's the only movie of 2021 I gave up on, and 2021 has Godzilla vs Kong and WW84.
As deeply flawed as David Lynch's 1984 version is - and its deeply flawed - it has a superior cast, superior production/set/vehicle design, superior costumes, superior pacing, superior staging, superior score, and manages to be more faithful to the book, overall.
Villeneuve's version has better worm VFX and really cool looking ornithopters. That's about it. Oh, and Hans Zimmer's score is merely dull, not ear shatteringly bad, like Dunkirk.
I could go on, but my earlier dissertation about EE-suit tech is a better read than this. Impassioned creativity beats impassioned complaining.
