Review – Dune

So in the future everyone will spend their lives stoned on worm secretions? Well, that’ll give humanity something to look forward to. Honestly, I’ve sat through this thing three or four times now (in at least two different versions, one of which was Alan Smithee’d), and it still strikes me as a noisy mélange of pretty sets, meandering story, rock star glitz (in the cast and on the soundtrack), Frank Herbert sci fi mysticism and general David-Lynchiness. I respect the effort it took to even attempt to make a movie out of Herbert’s book, but an E for effort isn’t the same as an A for quality. Mildly amusing
