So tv. When Do you Think Dune Will Get What It Deserves?
I bet when the concept of like Netflix takes over the industry they will have an opportunity to make it into something; as people could watch it at home being it would be way to complicated for the theaters.
if it gets the screenplay it deserves it'll never get the budget it needs, and vice versa
the best you could expect would be some game-of-thrones esque show on some premium network, which would still inevitably be dumbed down and altered for more widespread consumption by modern audiences
until then just live with the scifi mini-series, despite the low budget it does a decent job with capturing the story
I agree with this guy. The miniseries is really awesome and probably as good as a film adaptation could be. Great cast, great art direction, great use of lighting. Everybody should just watch this and stop pretending they give a shit about Jorodowski even though those same plebs probably never heard of him before the documentary and if they had ever bothered to watch any of his films would know that his version of Dune would have turned out an incompressible mess at best.
Newsflash. When it originally came out, it was universally loved by us nerds. I don't know what happened over the years. Probably just another case of /tv/ having to hate what everyone else likes.
>end of the original movie was rushed
It also ass rapes the source material. "And then Muad'Dib made it rain on Arrakis. Oh which would kill all the sandworms, end Spice production and destroy the Empire he just conquered... THE END!"
thats what happened in the novels eventually anyways
they left the equatorial strip desert for the makers and turned the rest of arakkis green
though paul didnt do it with apparent magic, and he also did it much later
