IMDB says we'll get another "Dune" movie next year. There aren't any details yet, so it may still be dropped. But if they go with it, I hope like hell they'll finally make it right.

"Dune" was really not lucky so far. Lynch's version was not bad, all things considered, up until the last few minutes. When they screwed up everything. Because, seriously - rain?... Makes me go "WTF???" every time I'm watching it.
The SciFi version?... I don't even have the words. It was more than bad. It was hideous. Staring with acting and ending with the costumes. *shudders* Let's forget it even exists.

This is really amazing book (the whole Dune-verse is) and one of my all-time favorites. I want someone to finally do it's justice. I mean, it's not more difficult that "LOTR" and I happen to think that Peter Jackson did really good job.
I'm a pessimist, so I'll always expect the worse. But I'm really tired of cringing, while watching movies based on the books I love.

Ummm... Lynch's movie was good enough, and the tv-one (scifi channel?) had a very pretty Paul =))))

Alec Newman is not exactly my type. I much preferred James McAvoy as Leto II =)

I saw it long ago.... but the guy with shiny blue eyes was pretty :PPPP (icons reminds me of him now) but anyway it was an average movie, the only things I remember is that I understood the plot better (Lync one was too dense) and the 'guy' XDDDDDDDDDDDDD

Lynch skipped so much from the book, that it could be difficult to get some things, if you didn't read it before.

And you're right - those are totally melange addict eyes =)
