I enjoyed this write-up of Dune (2021)

It basically goes scene by scene, explaining how the movie draws on the books. This is about the palm tree scene:

“These aren’t indigenous. They can’t survive without me.” You couldn’t pay me to live in a vast desert dotted with non-native palm trees, wracked by feudal-level inequality, and beset by valuable powdered drugs. But enough about Los Angeles, folks!
