Be honest, /misc/...if for some UNFATHOMABLE reason this movie got made as Jodorowsky intended, with his vision COMPLETELY INTACT, budget and length be damned, and it got a wide release...do you HONESTLY believe it would've had a chance?

I'd go to see it
Not really. I'd like to see it, but Dune is better in book form, it translates badly to screen.
Not a fan of Lynch's OR Denis's vision, eh? I haven't seen either, so I wouldn't know.
I liked Lynch's version a lot, even though a large part of it fundamentally misunderstood from the book, like the ending. But it had the most soul so far. I don't like Denis' that much at all besides some of the effects like the shields.
It's give or take. One of the other anons said that Dune is REALLY hard to properly adapt to screen. I have to agree. Reading the damn thing is like a Rorschach tests in and of itself, so how Lynch and Denis interpreted it is different than how you or I would do so.
Oh definitely. So much of it is in people's minds or complex scheming so it doesn't always make for an immediately interesting movie to non-fans unfamiliar with Dune. And I think the follow on books are almost un-filmable. They wouldn't make much money anyway. Would still love to see someone try. The Children of Dune miniseries was decent.
I think Dune: Messiah would make a wonderful film. It's much smaller scale and it reads almost more like a crime thriller than the other books. Imagine the nuke scene on screen. It's my hope that Denis' Dune is successful enough to take us all the way into Dune: Messiah on film.
>some of the effects like the shields.
blue and red is so cool
Lynch's version was the best because, in order to make the "unfilmable" Dune into a movie, he intentionally broke cardinal rules of filmmaking, like having significant portions of character dialogue be internal.
When I first watched it, I honestly didn't mind the internal dialogue and thought they added much needed info. I don't get the hate for them unless it's on some movie with silly and simple stories/characters.
no one minded, it was part of the film.
one critic must have written about it and a utuber clown read that critic's critique and then all the imbeciles watched that utuber and now perpetually repeat the exact same things through their recycled mindless mouths.
it is usually the case.
most of the retards in this thread likely only know about jodkmaoejeroksky's version vision of the original vision version because of a utube cancer.
It's a technique that almost never appears in film.
American Psycho uses it. And I think Sorcesse likes to use it, and you get a kind of hybrid-monologue version of it in Goodfellas and Wolf of Wall Street. But I can't think of a movie off the top of my head has multiple characters use internal dialogue like Lynch did.
>Not a fan
I like them both, but I don't think the theme and style of Dune translates well.
Take LotR - movies are wildly different from books, they are much more action focused, and it works.
I doubt you can do the same with Dune and still keep it good.
what if right if actually Sam raimi had actually made the Lord of the rings and actually had his own vision version of it so it was actually his original idea of it all and we could see his vision of it and his version of it in his vision version actually actually seeing it actually actually actually seeing it vision version of it actually
>Dune is better in book form, it translates badly to screen.
Literally this. Dune is way better as a book. Still would want to see Jodorowsky's take on Dune though.
DUDE PSYCHEDELICS LMAO
jodorowsky doesn't do drugs retard
Neither did Dali. Didn't stop some people from thinking he did (this is on topic because Dali was supposed to be IN the film).
most non druggies don't understand how deep that conversation has gone since the 60s. some "drug users" nowadays don't even consider weed a drug which Jodorowsky definitely smokes and has admitted to. some place it in the same category as cigarettes and coffee.
Could've been nice, sure, but newhere near as spectacular as that documentary might make it seem like. Everybody is just eating up Jodorowsky's salespitch.
How long would it have been?
probably around 14 hours
So then no. A 14 movie would have no shot in theaters. A miniseries maybe.
According to some sources, anywhere from 10-14 HOURS long. Make of that what you will.
it would've pissed off Dune fans even more than either Lynch's or Villanueve's because a lot of his planned changes were downright retarded
Was the Emperor pooping and peeing in two different dolphin shaped toilets not in the book?
Would it even be possible to make a movie less accurate to the book than David Lynch?
The art is legitimately beautiful, if a bit surreal.
Mœbius was so talented. One of my favourite artists. Him and Jodorowsky did a comic afterwards, L'Incal
And The Incal and The Metabarons are some of the best comics ever made because of it.
all of these outfits would have ended up looking like cheap Logan’s Run outfits in reality
At best something like this
Not necessarily. Just make it honestly using the top materials. Our royalty used to wear more insane stuff.
the colors and the proportions kinda have an Amano feel to it
Darth Riddler 2022
I'd watch it.
>made as Jodorowsky intended
it's was never a serious production and would never have made it any further than it got
only redditors who know nothing about film production are wowed by all this stuff, there's no clear direction to any of it.
they'll ignore your post, ignore the facts and remain ignorant because pseudo intellectual plebbitors have brought up this topic for decades and they'll never stop.
even if the garden gnomesky made it right now, they'd still be talking about "what if it was made in the 60s though wowowow".
I don’t know much about how far it got, but I do know that Jodorowsky did a lot of research.
I don’t see the point of posts like this one. The movie was not made, get over it, however we can take away something from Jodo, in his perspective and insights into the media itself.
garden gnomedorowsky is a hack, so no.
I'm a fag btw
It would've sucked
How would the robot version of Salvador Dali doing most of his acting for him have worked back then? Would have just been a Chuck E Cheese style animatronic?
they should make it an animated series in Moebius style
the only way it could work out
Dune is too long for a movie
That might be good so they could at least get the whole story out. I still think there's something really comfy about seeing them in the live action desert though.
I would watch a book series spanning animated anthology. 30 minute- 1h long episodes that go through the entire mythos of Dune. All done in Mobeus' BD style with fluid animation.
Maybe one day when people forget about dunc and the zoomies get nostalgic.
It would have looked like complete dogshit and don't lie. Does anyone honestly think this would have looked good on a $9 million budget? All the fruity costumes and artstyle would have looked horrible. And this was pre Star Wars.
$9 mil in 1969 was a lot of money
Flash Gordon was absolute KINO
Dune's story is kinda garbage, at least Jodo's movie would have been aesthetically interesting
>Dune's story is kinda garbage
B8 but it is masturbatory
The writing not the story
It would have been fucking catastrophically bad self-suck garbage that would have ruined the story of Dune for all time. I am so glad it was never made.
just fucking stop it.
im sick of hearing about it.
fucking plebbit fucking plebbit fucking plebbit
omgosh what if, right, like, actually, if joroskroskzksfkosfky made his actual version of actually dune actually and he vision vision actual version original version vision of dune jsorksokfkxoksky
yeah yeah and what if, actually originally version vision that Sidney cooper made his original actually version vision of A. I. and also also wait listen wait right also actually if version vision of what if actually if John clorde varndarme actually vision version of Alien instead of jack ripley wow imagine eugh I just cummed in my brown cordoroi trousers.
Hey! Sourpuss! Why don't you drop trough, see if you can pry open your buttcheeks and get that tight ass of yours open, and take a chillaxative.
are you an actual ex-hippy drugged up gay from the 60s
have you ever considered that you don't have a personality and instead just have a series of borrowed talking points from other incredibly boring people that are constantly recycled.
>wowowoww what if yeah actually what if yeah if yeah what if right yeah what if actually that Mary Poppins was actually really real and she could fly with an actual real umbrella really! wowooww
It’s always difficult to say.
In the documentary, Jodorowsky says he didn’t read dune, my guess is that he would’ve made his own movie, like Kubrick did the Shining, people would’ve liked it, but it would not be seen as Dune canon.
I think he actually did say he read Dune but the way he phrased it was confusing. He said he locked himself in a mansion or something for two weeks and read it. He definitely didn't give the impression he cared about the story at all, though, in the anecdote or at any other time in the documentary.
It sounds like utter shit.
