Pretty much was inevitable. 

If it increases the chances of the second half getting made then I'm all for it though.

Dune - Another one?  Hollywood is bereft of ideas, hence all of the retreads and the mining of comic books for material. Maybe not always a bad thing, but indicative of the lack of ideas, imagination and creative writing talent in the entertainment industry.

Sorry. Should not have posted that (but really!). My mom told me not to say anything if I had nothing nice to say. I hope it is a good show. It does not look like one I would like based on the appearance of the characters. A lot of people are putting their time and money into it and I hope they pull it off and are well rewarded.

Good point. My Mom would cut a switch at some of my posts.  :-[

To be fair, it's only been tried twice before and both times left a lot to be desired. 

The Lynch version really failed to capture anything except interesting aesthetics.  It missed the mark on a lot of central themes of the book, to the point of actually being utterly contrary to them.  Lynch himself disowned the film and refuses to talk about it unless pressed. 

The SyFy miniseries better represented the book but looked awful due to budget, and was pretty poorly cast.  It also made some story concessions that hurt a lot of the themes.  A better attempt for sure, but a lot to be desired. 

The best they've done was the Children of Dune miniseries which covers book 2 and 3.  I'm 100% satisfied with that one and no, I don't think any remake on that is either necessary or justified.

So, while I tend to agree with you that Holywood is a retread, there is at least room for this to be tried.  This looks like the first time someone's getting it "right" or at least insofar as I could tell from the trailer. 

I'm a huge Dune fanboy so of course I would say these things.  ;)

After Saturday's game I'm not sure I want College Football back.   :-\

But yes, my wife not getting sick while immune compromised is a win.

how have you missed Dune all of these years?
Toonces - Don't ask me, I just close my eyes and take it.

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

I saw the Dune movie from way back in the, 80's was it? It didn't impress me but I saw enough to know there was far more to the story than what was in it. Loved the Worms.  O0

Have to agree that this version is looking absolutely fantastic. Would love to see a game made with this aesthetic.
