:scream: fuck yes?


#2

Spicy!


#3

Watched it a few months ago, quite overtly Lynchy isn’t it, much more than I anticipated.


#4

yes, absolutely. It’s kind of weird rewatching it now as it’s completely differently styled to the way I remembered


#5

jodorowsky’s time is now!


#6

Not seen it since I first saw it fucking years ago.
Sting!

also can’t understand a fucking word he sings


#10

But every step he takes, you’ll be watching him?


#11

Sure if he’s in eyesight


#12

The original is possibly the worst film ever made.


#13

the book is great


#14

Yes, absolutely fucking hate it. Made to suffer through it three times back in uni days, ugh.


#15

It needs a big budget TV series to do it justice really. Done well it could be a fantastic Game of Thrones style program.

Problem with that is that, as the Red Dwarf guys pointed out, it’s very easy to spend a lot of money making something that looks very cheap with TV sci-fi.

terrible film, even if lynch had been given his final cut it likely would still have sucked. the scifi miniseries is supposed to be a better crack at the story but i couldn’t get past the absolutely woeful CGI.


#17

I’ve heard the Lynch cut is better, but it’s 40 minutes longer and I’m not watching a single minute of that festering heap again if I can avoid it.


#18

It’s less of a total mess but it’s still awful and comes completely undone at several points. Pretty sure lynch has disavowed any of the cuts.


#19

In a well-ordered society anyone who had dedicated 5 hours of their lives to watching both cuts of that disaster would be given medals or a telegram from the Queen. Not all heroes, EIV.

It was Dune ffs it’s not going to make sense
