DUNE (1984)



A beautiful mess of a movie. This is an everything and the kitchen sink adaptation with too many cooks in the kitchen, but with an intense sense gravitas or importance to the source material. The production is top notch with some gorgeous grande Flash Gordon set design, but the incessant multiple POV narration and the skimmed over minor characters definitely distract from the narrative. But it’s a good-old-time and totally worth the running time; you have to see the worms, you have to see the revolting & levitating Barron, and you have to see Sting’s HR Giger briefs.


It’s Big Boo-Tay,
