    Casting looks better than past efforts.

    I recognize a couple in the cast. I think i'm in the minority that liked the David Lynch film but that could also be the Nostalgia of it. I did think as much as the Baron strayed from the book (among other things), he was a strong part of the movie.

    Well the books were about Paul and casting a big dude with an enormous chin made it hard to enjoy, among othet things.

    I’m reading Dune right now for the first time.
    It’s quite good so far.

    It’s actually Grimes (Elon Musks GFs) favorite book. Apparently she takes a lot of influence from it.

    You've had plenty of time. The first book is nearly as old as I am.

    I’m looking forward to watching it.

    I liked the books and the old film

    I just read the (first) for the first time in anticipation of the film. The buzz is good.

    Haven't seen the Lynch version. I like Lynch but heard it was terrible.

    I have a soft spot for it. Its better than the TV version. His hands were tied though. He kind of got sucked into making the movie that the execs wanted. There are some great things about that movie. Yes it drifts from the book a bit but who cares.

    Don't read the book and you won't know what you missed LOL

    I read the first couple of books years ago. Would really like to have the time to go back and reread them, and then finish the series. Looking forward to the movie, anyway.

    It couldn't be much worse than the first version.
    Or maybe it could.

    If it's a post-apocalyptic dystopian future sci-fi thing, I'm in

    Oh. Well, maybe I'm in anyway. The costumes look cool.

    There are elements in the story that will be obvious and interesting, the original novel is fat and is very very deep and detailed. A great filmmaker and cast I would think can make a good standalone movie. It's a compelling story.

    Well, I could read the book, but then I shouldn't watch the film until after a decent interval. But if I watch the film first, it might spoil the book for me. Sigh.
