I read the book as teenager and enjoyed it. Many years later the David Lynch movie came out, and I thought he did well for the technology available then. I don't know if any movie can live up to the scope of the novel, but I'll check this one out when I can.Saw this earlier today. Has inspired me to read the book again before I see the movie. Read the paperback many many years ago. Fresh new copy on my Kindle.
I finished it, but really did not like it and I am a geek ( still read comics at age 54 ), never read the book and I actually think the first movie is more watchable because it is so bad you cannot look away, this one is just blah.I tried to watch it, twice. Never could get into it. It was visually well done, but thats about all I can say personally that I found appealing about it.
Exactly. Or HBO could have done it. That said, I read last night that there is a spinoff in the works on the Bene Gesserit. Could be good.lakebum431, I was thinking the same thing. AppleTV+ could have made “Dune” as a multi-season series and gotten into the history of why there are Mentats and not computers, for example. I think it would have made a better choice than “Foundation“, personally.
That being said, a lot was left out of the current movie. As cheesy as it was, the first “Dune” movie did do a better job of filling in the backstories.
