Well, I finished the movie this morning, and it was ok. Are the Harkonnens that bizarre in the books? Because I think I remember reading somewhere that David Lynch went away from the books with some of their stuff. Which also brings up two other questions I had.
1) What was that hanging in the room when The Baron gave control of Dune to Raban (I think it was a cow, but I was on my Ipod so I couldn't tell for sure)
2)WTF was with the cat?
