        It would never work as a blockbuster. An experimental film might work, but that'll never get the budget to make you gays happy, everyone would shit on it for not having the space ships look right or something

        The plots are novel and interesting but the prose is really bad. Still, pretty good for genre fiction but I wouldn't read through them again.

    Pt1 felt like a good adaptation and pt2 was too liberal with it. Gedi Prime doesn't have a literal black sun that makes the planet black and white. It's just a heavily polluted world with a darkened sky. No time jump at all and having the events take place in less than a year makes the story feel smaller than it should be. Alia is supposed have been born, is a young child and she's supposed to kill the Baron which plays into her story later in the books when she goes crazy under his personality appearing within her. Also making his mother out to be the underlying bad guy is odd when she fricks off to Caladan to go back to working for the Sisterhood in the next book.

      In Heretics, Gammu (Gedi Prime) is described as having a yellow-green sun, but I'm assuming this is long after the pollution has been cleaned up.

      Giedi Prime has a weak sun that barely emits in the visible spectrum so it makes sense that the scene was shot in infrared, it just sucks that the movie made zero attempt to explain that it wasn't just a weird black and white effect. It was basically a night shot but without the green tint.

        That's something that I find hilarious about those movies and honestly appreciate. They're much better if you actually read the books and know the plot and character details. Imagine the balls on Villy to make those blockbuster budgeted movies which require you to read an ancient doorstopper of a sci-fi book to fully appreciate.

      Irrelevant. It's an aesthetic gimmick in both cases.

      >No time jump at all and having the events take place in less than a year makes the story feel smaller than it should be
      No it doesn't. It just makes the story make sense, Paul being a child makes it completely moronic.

      >and she's supposed to kill the Baron which plays into her story later in the books
      A) it's moronic B) later books are trash and nothing in the movie should be in service to them

      >Also making his mother out to be the underlying bad guy
      If you think she's a "bad guy" in the movie you might actually be moronic.

      Pt 1 was a boring letdown though. Things don't really take off before the second half of the book, sure, but the book is very interesting right from the getgo. Part 1's problem is that it really failed to capture the tension and political intrigue between the Harkonnens and Atreides, the biggest reasons for that is probably that Thufir became a nobody and the baron barely had any scenes nor anywhere near as much character as in the book. He comes off as a kind of generic comic book villain while in the book he's a well fleshed out and clever enemy to be respected and feared. Ultimately things just sort of happened in the movie and it was hard to give a shit why or what the outcome would be. This is felt regardless of whether you've read the book or not. It's just not that good of a movie on its own.

    >Your adolescent dream has been realized with Dune: Part One and Part Two. Is your teenage self satisfied?

    >I have mixed feelings. When I embarked on this adaptation, the first artist I approached was Hans Zimmer, and as much as we were excited by the prospect, I remember him asking me, “Is it a good idea to try to bring our childhood dreams to the screen? Are we meant to fail?” But there have been many moments with the Fremen and Harkonnens [central groups in Dune] that are close to my dream and would have pleased me as a teenager. There are other things that I changed because of the process of adaptation, so it’ll take me years to digest all this. It was the most challenging experience of my life, technically and cinematically, but I still wake up in the morning feeling blessed that I had the chance to make this adaptation.

      I respect Villynilly for doing all that and for not saying "muh adaptartion is the bestest". It does some shit wrong for the sake of compressing it all into a movie, but at least it keeps the themes alive instead of just making a typical Hero's Jorney out of a book that's kind of the opposite of that.

      It would have been an interpretation rather than an adaptation. Paul dying at the end of the movie is antithetical to what Herbert was trying to convey with the series. Still, Crazy Jodo's version would have made for an interesting picture, if not necessarily a good one.

    It's time to admit that Dune was never even very good to begin with and any adaptations should be looking to use the books only as a baseline. Jodorowsky was right. If it were up to me I'd to a trilogy where at the end of the second movie is at the same point as Denis, but instead Paul decides to do what he put off all of book 2 and has his idiot son do, and just say frick all this space opera shit I'm just going to wormchad. Then we can skip the dogshit that is Children and have a third movie dedicated entirely to God Emperor kino, which would also be the end of Paul's story. You can just tell Frank wanted to do this but had written himself into a corner with Messiah so made up some insane bullshit to reason about wormchad into existence, so we might as well cut out the middleman.

      >Dune was never even very good
      Dune certainly has its strengths, but it is far from perfect.
      Rereading Dune, and watching all the adaptations, has made me realize that the back half of the story is very clumsy.
      In the book it's just a bunch of scenes with the Fremen with very little connective tissue, and this really shows in the movies.
      Any adaptation is just gonna be

        That's what i've been saying for years. Short of actually filming the dinner scene in the first half, I'm fairly certain the spicediver cut of Lynch's Dune is the best we are ever going to get.

    Herbert's estate owns the rights to Dune. You don't get to decide what their intellectual property looks like. No, a dead guy doesn't either, despite being the creator. He is not the owner.

          Dune is an idea, not a physical object.
          I don't necessarily think it's bad to adapt things other people thought of in your own way (nothing is new, everything is derivative etc.), I just think saying the original creator doesn't own their original ideas is insane.
          You can sell the rights to make merchandise/adaptations based off an idea, but the creator owns their ideas. If you don't believe that you own your ideas, then you slippery slope to defending pedophilia. No, I will not elaborate.
