Looks promising; could have been a little bit spicier.

Good luck getting better than that David Lynch version.

Looks like it might actually do the Dune story justice.

I still say someone like HBO or Amazon ought to do a series. The Sci Fi Channel one had potential, but I felt like they looked at David Lynch's Dune and saw it was weird and decided they needed to try and be weirder than David Lynch, which is always a losing proposition.


Agreed on all points. This looks promising, but a six or eight hour series would capture more. It is a huge story.

I'll give it a watch for sure. I found the original interesting but I think I watched it too late in life to not consider it a product of its time. I like Villanueves other movies and I like the actors I recognize from the trailer. Whenever they reopen my theater I'll be there.

so after finding the SciFi series on youtube, I watched it,

it was a bit odd to me, mostly due the the effects

I thought Ian McNeice was horrible as Baron Harkonnen, (maybe because I see him as Burt Large from Doc Martin)


enjoyed it, but not as much as the first movie,


I may re read the book again before the new one is released,

It's going to be in two movies, and if Blade Runner 2049 is any indication, total length should be in the 6 hour area. LOL

Yeah, I like the miniseries better than Lynch's because it is closer to the book ("weirding modules"? Really???) but the production values kinda sucked. Eastern European CGI is kinda lacking and the matte painting sets...ugh.LOL

BR2049 wasn't so long that it was unenjoyable to watch. But a series would be better for a subject as complex as the universe of Dune.
