I really wish someone would make a new Dune movie. With the current state of the middle-east it is perfect timing. I seriously don't understand why people keep on saying it is unfilmable, just make Lawrence of Arabia in space and you pretty much have it covered.
Make a Dune anime where every single character is a loli EXCEPT for the actual loli.
Why do people say it's unfilmable? It's a pretty straightforward narrative.
I always wondered why Feyd doesn't post here any longer.
The only way to do dune correctly is to take liberties. It's a semi-boring book, and the sequels are interesting but also boring.
David lynch added every touch to Dune that made it interesting to people. Not Frank Herbert.
The first three books are actually pretty good and move along really nicely. It's when Herbert wrote himself into a corner and decided to use the "Ghola" concept to keep resurrecting characters thousands of years over and over again to keep the books moving into the future while still retaining a good portion of the original characters.
Of course, Brian Herbert ended the whole series with every main character from Dune coming back as a Ghola and living happily ever after. How novel.
Something that has always bothered me about this scene (other than Sting's acting): Why would you hide a poisoned knife on your hip? How often is a hip knife going to be useful in a fight?
It's a combination of close quarters (you just have to parry/grapple with your opponent) and stealth (the hope is your opponent doesn't notice and your audience thinks you're amazingly skilled).
And Sting made a far better Feyd than Matt Keeslar did, and I liked Keeslar as "The Middleman."
Well, I was hoping someone was going to make a pun on the word "hipster", but I guess Mr. Serious McNofun here has it all figured out.
To be honest, "knife fight" and "hipster" rarely appear in the same sentence. "Hipster" and "stabbing," maybe, but even so, it's not too common.
"The Middleman" was crazy fun.

Truly Sting's greatest contribution to art.
I never noticed the bowling pin strike sound at the end. Was that always there?

Dune was a landmark for floating fat people.
