Dune ★★★½

"Father! The sleeper has awakened!"

It's been so long since I last watched this, and so long since I read Dune, that I don't remember how accurate an adaptation it is. I remember not caring for it much when I saw it as a teen, but then I thought at the time, as I do now, that it's a strange film adaptation to make. It's such a niche franchise that I just can't imagine that many people wanting to take that plunge or, more importantly, liking what they see enough to bring about the whole series as films. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what Villeneuve does with it whenever it comes out.

The fact that Lynch accomplished a feat such as this with Patrick Stewart both riding a worm and wearing a mullet is pretty damn amazing, though, whatever you think of the film.
