Overall the trailer looks great! Unfortunately, it was made by Villeneuve, whose Blade Runner 2049 was so effin boring I couldn't finish it. Hope he didn't butcher this one, but not placing bets on it. Recycling Pink Floyd's Eclipse for it doesn't seem like a good start...
Interesting. I just reread Dune through Dune Chapterhouse less than a year ago, so some of the details will be fresh. Unlike the purists, I'll go see it or at least buy the Blu-Ray.
I have a high tolerance for deviation between a novel and its movie version, as long as the director and cast mean well. Lord of the Rings was great, and I enjoyed the Hobbit trilogy simply because they told a good story within the Tolkien universe. On the other end of the spectrum, the worst offenders in recent years were I, Robot and Starship Troopers.
I, Robot wasn't bad as long as you forgot Asimov's stories. Sadly, I don't think the Good Doctor's stories hold up as well today, given present technology.
Starship Troopers was a desecration and a travesty. I don't think Paul Verhoeven even read the wikipedia article on the novel, much less the novel itself. His claims that he was satirizing the politics in Heinlein's novel is a lame attempt at justifying his ineptitude.

Having read the books - including reading Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings aloud to my son (age eight - it took a year), I have a certain desire for some accuracy. Add in Silmarillion and it's intensified.
That being said, I also accept that in a mere 10 hours of movie time they'd have to skip a lot. Mrs Wife, who'd not read it, enjoyed it thoroughly and is a fan of Ents. But true to the Tolkein universe? Not so much.
The greatest affront of all was making Gimli into a buffoon and his friendship Legolas swapped for the Elf and Ranger being the buddies. Dwarves were nobodies fools. Hell - even look at how they debouched Hobbit: Legolas making an appearance.
Not at all as a purist but at the same time I have some limits. I could whine about more. Interestingly, I though I would, but never get around to wanting to re-watch the trilogy. Maybe that says something. The Hobbit movies were a bit of a travesty.
But, rolling back to the OP, I'll chant a tune I've implicitly and explicitly sung before (as would an elf under the stars): they know their audience. Special effects or you lose their attention. Power-up pellets, like in a video game, in the form of super-weapons and such. Plenty of big blasts, perhaps. In a world where remakes are what passes for imagination, why expect more?
The book was brilliant, assuming you like SF, and was so much more than was in the film. Much greater development of the characters and their relationships. I have moved on in my reading interests since then but may well go back to it some time.
I agree the book was brilliant, but I found that the further I went into the sequels, the worse they became, to the extent that I never finished God Emperor of Dune. I never saw the movie, and probably won't bother with the new one, although I did enjoy hearing Pink Floyd again.
Of all the things one can use to weight one browser vs another...one thing I liked about IE is that you had a trivially easy way to always, consistently, get it to prompt you where to download files (Save As rather than Save).
I'm avoiding Chrome, and I'm no fan of FireFox. So I'm trying to get used to Edge (or as some call it, now that it's using Chromium, "Chredge").
However, like Chrome, when you download a file, the download starts immediately, defaulting to your Downloads folder. Which you can change...but that's to permanently change your downloads folder.
But very often I want to tell a browser to download a specific file into a specific folder, and Save As worked great for those "one-off" situations. But Chredge insists on downloading everything into the one designated folder, without prompting you. Or, every once in a while, I do get a Save As prompt, but it's very inconsistent. I honestly have no idea what triggers it (why at times it comes up, and at others, it doesn't).
There's a right-click option, Save Link As, which works for links that are pointing directly to the resource to download (it triggers a standard Save As dialog box, which is what I want). But if the download is implemented through button or an image that triggers some script that eventually gets you to the download, then the best that might happen is a prompt to save an HTML page, and not the actual file.
If I haven't discovered it yet by now, then I can't imagine it's there and I've just missed it. Thoughts? A custom policy maybe? The one-liner question is: I want an option for the browser to always prompt me where to save a given download.
And if your suggestion is to move the file out of the Downloads folder and into the target folder after it's done, then you're missing the point.
