Dune is finally here in all its glory, and Denis Villeneuve has made a film filled with glory as the film’s every scene is more beautiful than the last and the background score is outright orgasmic, with brilliant acting from all the cast in the film. But still, the Dune is only half a part of a full film and we still have to wait for the second part to come out and complete the story. Dune Part 2 still hasn’t gotten a green light by Warner Bros., but that’s just a matter of time and most fans are sure that we will get Part 2, and while you wait for the second part, you can watch these 10 sci-fi movies I am sure you will enjoy.
