Re: Dune - The Book and the 1984 film *spoilers for both*

For my money, the two mini-series are a much better depiciton of Dune all-around. Sure, the production values are somewhat less than what Lynch had to work with, but I think this isn't necessarily a bad thing. In a way, i think it forced the mini-series creator's to focus more on the characters and story than on making some sort of epic sci-fi blockbuster.

Of course, in a perfect world, Dune would have been made back in the '70s with Orson Wells as Baron Harkonnen...
