[DMCForum] Re: Best movie adaptation of Dune?



Whichever version it was that came out in the 80's (the version with
Sting), was IMHO one of the two worst movies ever made (and I don't
know that there is really another that was as bad!).  

My wife and I went to see it in the theater when it came out.  And,
for the first and only time in our lives, we walked out about 1/3 of
the way through. It was just awful.

Then a few yers later we were discussing that experience and we
thought maybe it was just our mood that night.  After all, Dune (the
book) is a classic.  So, we rented it to see at home with popcorn and
beer (that should make the movies better, right?).  This was a
recently released "Director's Cut".  It was just as bad as we
remembered it.  We thought we would watch it through to the end just
for laughs.  Couldn't do it.
