Dune (1984)

Skyrim. That explains why I haven't updated my blog for many days. But let's all be real on this, Skyrim is great, really. I mean, I haven't been so excited about a game since KOTOR, and that was years ago. Dude, this is a great game. But enough about that. Dune (1984) is an old Sci-Fi movie about a book with the same name, made somewhere around the time as Star Wars and costed 10 million more, but turned out less popular and... well... I really don't want to be hard on Dune, I mean , the book is great and all, but man oh man was this all messed up. And I would have never expected that from David Lynch. Yeah... just gets better and better from here.
To start with, thank the maker that there is an introduction to explain why and what is going on, because I surely think that those who did not read the book would not understand a single thing in the movie , at all. That is probably the good thing, i don't know.
I will have to leave the story alone, because fudge you, Dune is awesome. But to put the whole thing in only 3h ? To sides to that, both bad thou:, one is that everything happens to fast and there is no time to think or just chill, the other thing is that even while happening to fast , those 3h are not enough. Oh did it not have five (or four or six, I really don't know) parts like Star Wars ?
Time to put dirt on the whole Sci-Fi thing. I would love to say that it was not the time yet, but look at..well.. yes... Star Wars again, it is starting to look more about Star Wars than dune..Anyway. In 1984 the CGI was bumpy, but these were horrible even for that time. Where did all the money go to ? Those eyes ? did they spend all the money for actual surgery ?
With that in mind it all looks like some weird future voodoo. All those flying gingers and stuff... I mean, I am not racist but gingers are not born be THIS ugly. Maybe this is just the book inside my head talking, but I feel disappointed. And angry that i lost 3h not playing Skyrim. I heard they are make a new version in 2014, so until that day, lets all pretend that this one never came out. :)

  1. How crazy is it that I've never sat through dune. I get bored quickly and always seem to catch it half way through.

  2. No one will blame you for playing skyrim haha, it's pretty much shut down some areas of the internet.

    Dune is one of my favorite movies of all time though.

  7. Both Dune and Skyrim use "the voice".
    Coincidence? I think not.

  12. Big Dune fan here, have all the original books and love and reread them every year or two. Not such a fan of the ones they made after frank herbert died though.

  13. I blame Skyrim on a lot of things. It has sucked up my time too much! Though I guess it is my full time job to review PC games! :) - http://www.d22-zone.com
