Viewers can be divided into two categories. The first are those who are looking for flashy expensive over the top graphics with some decent dialogue and structure. The second group in this case are those of you out there who love the Dune Series and would rather be in-depth with the plot then see the flashy over the top Graphics. The casting and portrayal of characters in this film FAR surpasses the ones who tried more recently to redo the movie TV version . I Recommend One Thing if you do see this movie. WATCH THE 3 hour version. It goes much more in-depth then the normal version and is <more>
much easier to follow. The Film is worth watching at least once, and for me, its worth watching time after time.
I've talked to quite a few die-hard Herbert fans who insist that this film is rubbish. Well, I personally feel that this film is one of the most lavish and elegant science fiction movies ever made. I think it's wonderful, and am happy to have it in my collection.The movie itself inspired me to read the next couple of books in the series.I do agree however that there are some scenes that need to be added in a definitive collection. There are a couple of sequences from the Alan Smithee bootleg version - such as when the water of the Fremen warrior that Paul defeated in combat is <more>
re-absorbed into the collective water supply - that are absolutely vital to the story. Yet scenes like this were cut out of the final movie version that we all see on DVD.
I haven't seen this movie in years,and a couple weeks ago I caught it on TV at my buddy Zak's house and it blew my f***ing mind.Of course, I had time to become a huge David Lynch fan and study cinema intensely since the first time I watched it, but it is still a visually awe inspiring film.It is almost if not just as visually stunning and beautiful, as well as emotionally,psychologically, and intellectually stimulating as Kubrick's 2001:a Space Odyssey.The cast is amazing,practically every good actor you can think of plays in this movie.The makeup effects by Gianetto de Rossi,one <more>
of my favorites, are incredible.And David Lynch's beautiful and delicate direction is some of the best in his career.And don't let me forget the scope and vision of this film are incredible,even though I can see where Hollywood tampered with it, I can also see Lynch's true intentions were with this movie,which is so great its good enough to make this film incredible. I'll end my review with my favorite line of the movie,with a close up of Dean Stockwell's moustached lips,"The tooth...the tooth!"
To begin with, I have to say that I saw the movie first, and read the book years later. This seems to be important: Nearly everybody who read the book first hates the movie, but most of those who saw the movie first seem to like it.Now, why is this so? I cannot really understand it because, in comparition to other movies based on existing literature, what we have here is a film which stays very close to the original story and does not add many new elements.When I read the book, I could see the movie in front of me in nearly every chapter. So I really don't understand what Herbert-Fans had <more>
expected from this movie...I for my part like it a lot. It has a very mystical atmosphere about it and the story develops nicely. Of course there are some elements which are simply not explained and are therefore very confusing, but somehow this seems to be a thing Lynch tends to do in every of his movies, so what? I like some simple scenes like the opening monologue a whole lot. I LOVE the music which played in my mind all the time while I read the book , and I think the characters are very strong and for example Letho Atreides sometimes full of tragedy.The part I like the most though is the worm-part. I think the special effects are not always brilliant, but seeing the scenes with the worms, I am really awestruck because they are so impressing.All in all, I think this is one of the more underrated movies in Science Fiction history. It may be because the director himself was not happy with it, or because fans expected too much from a simple two hour movie. I always enjoy watching this film and listening to the soundtrack. And I would love to see a Director's Cut version.
I read "Dune" in 1984, prior to watching David Lynch's adaptation but with his film's visuals in mind thanks to the magazines of the time . I fell in love with the book of course and soon after with the movie.Problems during the course of its production, unwise if not poor decisions regarding its visual effects and the pressure of condensing a very complex material in 2 hours mark all conspired against the quality of the piece, the main victims here being the story telling which is really not great and the pace which is somewhat unbalanced and even clumsy . But <more>
despite of all its major flaws, I believe that David Lynch's film remains a unique piece of cinema for which a major re-assessment is long overdue and much needed. Lynch is a creator-director renowned for its vivid and otherworldly imageries and "Dune" is no exception. In fact the film is full of striking moments Princess Irulan's opening sequence, the visit of the 3rd stage Navigator to the Emperor, the Harkonnens first introduction, the Atreides ships entering the immense Guild high liners etc... . Its design in general makes it a fascinating picture to watch. The sets were sumptuous even by today's standards , the costumes superb and varied, Freddie Francis's photography outstanding and the extraordinary all-star ensemble cast provided some wonderful and memorable performances. "Dune" might not be flashy and "futuristically" demonstrative quite the contrary in fact which actually add to its charms but it is all gravitas and nobility, unconventional, challenging, strange and... well okay, granted: intellectual. These were some of the reasons why the movie was almost universally paned upon its release ironically by the very same critics that would complain about the formulaic and predictable nature of Hollywood films . The movie simply fell victim of the expectations as it did not come out as the pop-corn blockbuster some quarters have expected back then which in itself is very strange considering the tone of the original material and the very nature of the director .Whether one love d or loathe d this film, "Dune" could hardly be accused of being banal or clichéd now, could it? For its defence the film main merit is to exist at all. "Dune" is a book that cannot be adapted effectively as proved years later by its somewhat insipid TV adaptation and yet the film is there in all its beauty and relative failure.As noted in some other reviews on here, the TV version of the film which was atrociously re-cut and CRIMINALLY re-framed, boasts however some never seen before footages and scenes that could have benefited the movie if only producer Dino de Laurentiis had agreed to release a three hours epic. Hey! There's an idea! Wouldn't that be cool if David Lynch was granted a director's cut? I know that would sure make me a happy bunny. And I also know that there are some of you out there that would agree...
This film is a true master-class of art,the true scale of props/sets costumes+original designs is above all,and compared to today pix elated cartoons/video game made films,is on top 'bar none',such hard work has gone into producing dune and not just a few knobs nerds sitting on their arse's pushing keys on a qwerty to make such effects like in today cheap/made blockbusters what a laugh .The Dune sets are superb,as so is the cast,the story it self is quite simple to follow,unless of course you are simple! It should be placed in an art gallery as a true Masterpiece.The politics <more>
involved in this film reminds one of the English Civil War and the demise of the Russian Royal Family by the Bolsheveks.Now is this down to the fantastic costumes and hand built sets, or the way the story rolls, In a nutshell Its a futuristic Revolution against Artistic Licence.Well done David.I'm sure Artist Damian Hurst from my home city of Leeds would be proud to show such super work of this quality if he'd created it,Dune is not Oxfam,as is so much of the film Rubbish been constantly produced in the Us Today and Everyday.
Every time I see this film I like it more, yet can see why people would dislike this movie, and I can sum up it's shortcoming this way:Not close enough to the book to humour the people who have read the book, to confusing for people who have not. Thus Lynch managed to get a lot of bad press about this near masterpiece.It is very difficult to fit the plot of Herbert's masterpiece into 130 minutes, but I think Lynch did a good job, sadly he added som stuff that was not in the book. Where Lynch does excel is in setting the mood. To help him he had probably the best possible cast for such <more>
a movie and the best musical score ever. The acting overall is excellent except possibly Maclachlan and Jones and for me who read the book before seeing the film, it is hard not to see Stewart as Halleck. The timing of the acting and events is almost perfect. If Lynch had had help by a better scriptwriter to curb some of his wilder additions and flesh out the plot a bit and this could have been one of the best sci-fi movies ever. As is, it is very good, but somewhat flawed.
Over the years, I have come to the understanding that there are two schools of though here. Some people absolutely hate this movie and other absolutely love it. I'm of the latter school, regularly enjoying Lynch's twisted take on the late Herbert's fantastic story. The story follows the House Atreides on a planetary move to the spice mining world of Arakis. With it, comes the power struggle and life and death situations commonly associated with political struggle. Dark and interesting, Lynch has managed to capture all of Herbert's story and mix it with some of his sick and <more>
twisted ideas. A must watch for Lynch and Herbert fans.8/10
One of the few movies with a style of its own (by earnes)
Seriously, I do not understand why so many people dislike this movie. I think you have to take a couple of things into account. First: It is a 2 hour movie telling a story that spans several hundred pages in a book - so certain losses are just natural. Second: Compared to three times recycled multi-million-dollar-trash like the new Star Wars Episodes, this movie offers something really unique: A style of its own. The mixture between scifi elements, medieval setting and the culture of the the Middle East is excellent and Lynch welded them together into one solid piece of art... even though he <more>
seems to disagree today. Within this setting the lack of non-stop-action or overwhelming SFX never bothered me. On the contrary, this movie gives you time to watch... and many scenes are worth a second look. Third: I loved the actors, who were just as stiff, ugly, arrogant, noble or nice like the characters they tried to represent.In the end it is a question of taste if you like this movie or not. But for me, it will always have a place in my DVD-shelf...
