Yes very much this! Not to mention the beating the book expository dead horse, by saying “Desert Power” five times. If they didn’t act like it was the most ingenious revelation every time they uttered it, Desert Power— let me say it again for emphasis—might have worked better. I plan to work on an edit of this which makes the ending of Pt 1 truer to that segment of the book. And guess what... Paul won’t be saying DESERT POWER.I grew tired of the film's exposition dialogue repeatedly following a three stage formula: 1. the book version, 2. the movie version, 3. the dumb version e.g. "It's a Crysknife. The tooth of Shai-Hulud. A big sandworm", or "It's a Gom Jabbar. A poisoned needle. It instantly causes death" etc.
