    Like LOTR's trilogy, I wish both installments were in the can. Having to film the 2nd installment down the road seems like a potential problem and a big delay for those of us wanting to see a 5-6 hour rendition of one of the best stories ever.

    Apparently the Maiden song was originally to be called "Dune," but Frank Herbert was not a fan of the band and forbade them the use of his book title...

    Alas, no. I ended my journalism career in 2009.(Bandcamp was only a year old at that point and I hadn't even heard of it yet).

    But back to the topic of Dune:

    Wired article on how Frank Herbert created the ultimate tampon:

    Bruce tells that story in the intro I posted above.

    Too bad, I've wondered when I read and listen to some of the hip hop posts. I should check when Bandcamp became something I used and listened to a lot, maybe 2012?

    Do both! However, in reverse order. Just hold up til you can get your first experience on the big screen. IMAX or similar jumbo size screen with bonkers loud sound preferably. Then after you've experienced total visual and aural overload, taken a moment to soak in the experience, THEN watch it at home on HBO Max for a second viewing to try and catch what you missed the first time. At least that's what I'm doing.

    Also watching the Lynch version in between viewings, blasting Toto at max volume to serve as a buffer for full Dune maximization. Lather, rinse repeat with alternate versions.

    I have heard that this particular fan edit by creator "Spice Diver" is supposedly the best version out there. Will check it out stat to verify. And yes, this is the full(est?) movie, so enjoy!!!:

    Awesome! Thanks for the non-spoilery take. Did you see it at the big screen after all?

    Man, I'm stoked. When should we lift the spoiler embargo, huh guys? After the weekend? A week?

    Saw it on the standard big screen at 6pm, but the bigger screen https://www.bowtiecinemas.com/btx wasnt until 7 ( which gave me plenty of room for my experience) so likely see that soon, then will seek out an IMAX, likely the BIG one in the city @ Lincoln Square

    oh and
    "Dune: The Sisterhood,” a prequel series based on the Bene Gesserit, was ordered straight to series at HBO Max in 2019, with onetime showrunner Jon Spaihts exiting that role to focus on the writing the script for the second of the “Dune” movies. Diane Ademu-John has taken over as showrunner.

    Just watched in a near empty very large screen theatre (post pizza and beer) with a couple co-workers (all us us nerds having read the book(s) in our teens and been enamored since) and it was fantastic.

    Visually stunning. Really, it's beautifully done. The casting is so well done. Effects are great.

    Did it have everything to make my fanboy loins nerdgasm? No, but really fucking good and more faithful to the book than the prior attempts. My brain was very happy with the "holy shit this is how i always thought it should/would look" especially since Herbert's writing was somewhat sparse on much of that. A few things glossed over or omitted, but overall...really fucking amazing! Not an expository mess like Lynch's version. Much more true to the Harkonnen being conniving smart long-game political thugs vs. just gross beastly assholes.

    I think it does a good job of making fans happy as well as people who are going in cold with no familiarity. Granted, some of the glossing over will leave that latter category with many, many questions. (lasers? shield tech of some sort? swords and knives? but not much in the way of projectile weapons...? wait - how do those bug-copters fly like that...? how is the fat dude floating? i assume they'll get to some of that in the 2nd movie.

    I will be buying whatever directors cut whenever it gets released!

    About to watch it again via HBO with Mrs. Scrub and the 'rents-in-law. This time with the ability to pause it to go take a piss and grab a beer! Excellent.

    Man, I sure hope it's better than the Herbert/Anderson prequel books. Made it through The Machine Crusade before giving up on that crap.

    Oof.

    Just saw it in IMAX. So satisfying to see it properly done. The audience was applauding at the end which I haven't experienced in a long time. 2 plus hours went by like under an hour. Kind of the antithesis IMO cinematography wise to Lynch version. Almost a mild blue filter muting the colors compared to the blown out colors of Lynchs version. I also love that it isn't so dumbed down. I hope that eventually I can buy it without having to sign up for HBO Max which I would literally be signing up for just for Dune.
