Dune Re-Do

This Time It's For Real: New Dune Movie Confirmed

This time they're vowing to stay true to the Frank Herbert novel. We'll see.

I WILL kill HIM!

Awesome! I can't wait, and this time it will hopefully be more accurate to the novel!

brooke: I liked both the Lynch movie and the SF mini series. True, neither was true to the novels, but both were very entertaining nonetheless.

This one will be a must see for me.

I don't have great hopes for this or "The Hulk" reboot, but I'd like to be wrong. Now "Ironman" is another story; if the trailer is any indication it should be pretty good.

I'm looking forward to Ironman, too!

Yeah, the Ironman trailer looked good.

One of my favorite passages from "Dune" was the Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear:

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." -- Paul Atreides

I don't know how I missed this! I love your sandkitty.

I have to say that I like the Lynch version better than the Sci Fi miniseries. Don't get me wrong,t he Lynch version was truly awful, but at least the Atreides didn't seem like a bunch of whiners.

I would love to see a new production of Dune.

jen: Both versions have their pros & cons. The Lynch version was stylistically beautiful. It was cinematographically awesome. To this day, we quote lines from it (we are geeks, after all). The problem was that it deviated from the plot a bit, but it was still an entertaining movie.

The mini-series, although closer to the plot, looked a bit dingy. It didn't have the cinematic flair of its predecessor. We aren't quoting its dialog unless it just happens to coincide with the earlier Dune.

That just my opinion. I'm definitely looking forward to the next version which will perhaps combine the best of both films.
