I read the first book only once. Am interested in hearing why Paul is not the hero
Don't listen to AIOLICOCK. He is Atreides scum
Did you mean to say Harkonnen?
he's still the hero of the novel
of the first novel? yes. From there he just kinda lets billions get killed
10-4, after the first book everything gets so insanely complex
For any of you that want to go back to the wild wild world of DOS
Agree. I stopped reading 1/4 of the way into Children of Dune. Emperor Paul was extremely boring and uninteresting. His children were the same.
I remember God Emperor ramping back up and being really interesting, but it's really strange being so far away from the story that started it all
Dune II occupied a ton of my time mid 90s
my dad used to have to boot this for me, then putt putt and pajama Sam lol
Finally did this last night, found it on Amazon Prime. A little too much 70's In Search Of synthesizer music for me, but interesting to see an avant-garde weird genius' ambitious take on making the film. I imagine that if it had been made it would have been a bloated mess. Cool to see how the conceptual art influenced later sci-fi films, and funny to watch Jodo talk about how happy he was to see that Lynch's 1984 version sucked
What I would give to play DUNE 2000 right now.
It was a pretty solid remake, I think I still have my disc
Like the use of Pink Floyd
Worms look impressive
It's an uphill battle to make me forget these actors were Poe, Drax, Thanos, Khal Drogo, and Spiderman's squeeze. If Paul has a scene where he eats a peach, I'm gonna fucking lose it
oh good fucking lord that looks awesome
Not familiar with Dune. How big is Zendaya's role?
gave me goosebumps
Paul's hair pisses me off
it's distracting fo sho
It must be in Timothee Chalomet's contract that his hair has to be in that exact style, because he looks like that in every movie
Don't get me wrong, this movie looks dope. But Paul Atreides is the fucking man and he has an overgrown 14 year old's haircut
I don’t know that I’ve ever been more mind blown by a trailer.
Villeneuve could make toast and I’d watch and that is not toast.
Isn't Paul a teenager when the novel starts?
Been meaning to actually read the book for like a year now. Should probably get on that
part of me really digs the new body shields
part of me nostalgias for the old ones
curious on the new weirding modules
i've watched the trailer 20 times
I will be devastated if this isn’t at least great
Obviously answer is yes, have some down time, should I read the full series?
did I miss Piter de Vries in that trailer?
fucking incredible btw.
read the first one. things get... weird (and shitty) as the series goes on
I missed Thufir, too
First yes. Don't think you necessarily need to read the rest. Gets really really weird and hard to follow and pretty boring at times.
So this thread got me into this story a few months ago ... my lazy ass started the audio book. Haven’t finished it, going to pick it back up soon.
I really loved Messiah. I'd for sure do the first two
worried about the casting for Paul. he just looks waifish to me, idk. I'm not worried about Villeneuve but something about Paul seems off to me. like, from what I can see MacLachlan and Chalamet are basically the same age when doing Paul but I guess decades of MacLachlan being the only Paul I've known have programmed me to only see him in that role.
I thought Chalamet was really good in a somewhat similar role in The King. I’m optimistic, plus I just trust Villeneuve.
Was that a cover of a Pink Floyd song playing in the trailer?
I can believe the studios are desperate to avoid lost revenue at this point.
Stargate meets Blade Runner 2049
But for real it looks awesome
Stargate? With Spader and Kurt Russle? Nah
