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

I think it's clear Lynch didn't really understand the novel, as the film misses the point of all the major themes. The Fremen win because... they have the best guns? Paul... actually is a supernatural messiah that can make it rain?

Wait, wouldn't rain kill the sandworms and stop the spice flow, ruining the galaxy?

Love the movie but it's a bad adaptation.
