If any movie needed a gag reel credit scrawl, this did.
Stars for this soundtrack. I had it on vinyl at one time, no clue where it went to.

Speaking from the perspective of a fan of the books, it could have been a lot worse...espescially if they had let that talentless hack jodorowsky direct ;)
The SyFy version came a little bit closer in some regards, but I'll take a rainy saturday afternoon, a couple G&T's, and the three hour cut of this beautiful clusterfuck any day.
The power chords move me.
Oh yeah! I still need to check out that documentary. It was playing near my house for 3 bucks but I was sick and missed it. I dunno if this is how it played out, but what kind of producer says "this one's gonna be way too weird; we want a Star Wars here, let's call a more mainstream movie director" and winds up with David Lynch?
That's more or less it, but Jodo basically makes Lynch look like Michael Bay by comparison. His vision of Dune was borderline insulting to anyone who wanted to see an adaptation by any other name of the book. It's a good flick though, you should give it a look.
By "the Doc" I meant "the doc" as in documentary, dammit, your name gave me a word seizure.
I've been having the Dune Sucks-No It Doesn't argument since I was about 13 years old. This was my favorite movie in high school, and I think I've seen it dozens of times.
My defense of Dune is that it is one of few films that takes the risk of painting an alien culture in detailed, genuinely alien strokes. The pacing, the sound mixing, the art direction, the acting, the makeup, it all blends to make something beyond recognition. Compared to the shlocky 50's soap opera of Star Wars or Star Trek, it's a relief.
It's mainly the art direction that makes me love this movie so much. It's just a gorgeous movie. Jodorowsky would have done an even more amazing job.
I couldn't make it 2 minutes into the Syfy version, same with their destruction of A Wizard of Earthsea.

My favorite end credits ever.
Neither does Thufir's Cat, for that matter...
I think my favorite's actually Wall-E. I made it through the whole movie without crying and then the end credits came up.
I like any credits sequence where Jackie Chan gets seriously hurt over and over.
touche. Those are my favorites too. But Wall-E's was super pretty.

NOBODY as Count Fenring Because We Couldn't Fit Him In, I Mean Good Lord This Movie Has Enough Characters Already

One of my all-time favorite soundtrack albums next to "A Clockwork Orange" and "Legend."
I don't have a beef with Toto, just "Africa."

I LOVE Dune, and even kind of like this movie, but man, I hate the music over these credits.
