For this week’s installment of HBO Max Movie Club, host Matt Rogers attended a screening of the new Dune with his good friend and SNL writer Sudi Green... and they 👏 had👏 a 👏blast. From Dune’s iconic Hans Zimmer score to a big Jesus storyline, these two discuss every nook and cranny of the fantasy novel-turned-film-turned-film-again. In fact, they had so much fun watching the film in a real-life theater, that they just might move into one (not really—but they were definitely reminded of how great a “Big Adventure Book” on the big screen can be). They also share their best viewing experience advice by answering some burning questions: Do you need to read the book in order to “get” the film? Should you see the movie while dead-ass sober? Is the fear of phallic worms a prohibitive condition for watching? Give a listen to find out.

Dune is available in theaters and on HBO Max, in the US only, for 31 days from theatrical release. You can catch Dune (1984) on HBO via HBO Max until 11/30/21 and Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King on HBO Max until 12/31/2021.
