Dune

Post by Jack O. Hartz » Sat Oct 23, 2021 10:22 am

Dune is one of my all-time favorite books. I have probably reread it as many times as I have read LOTR. Watched the new movie last night and it is really remarkably good. Makes me just shake my head at how badly David Lynch fucked up the old one.
We will understand it better bye and bye.

That's good to hear, I'm looking forward to watching it, if I can get this darn music and football to give me a night off. I finally had to throw out my original paperback copy of Dune a couple years ago, it was just too yellowed and falling apart. I didn't mind the David Lynch movie as much as a lot of fans and critics did, but it really didn't do the book justice aside from the worms. Hoping this one is as pleasing as the Peter Jackson LOTR ones were for me!

Hey Sue

The new one is really done up right, although you don't see much of the worms yet, just a couple of huge mouths. And if you haven't heard, only the first half of the book is covered. We have to wait for the second half.

Nice seeing the book will finally be released as a film that actually covers the tale.
No real problems with earlier releases as entertainment. As for telling the story, horrible failures.
Read the first film only covers the first half of the book. Yippie!!! \:D/

He who controls the spice, controls the universe.

Life is not a problem to solve, but a reality to experience. So grab those Holywood Bowl ticket drops
