Dune 1984

This is a very polarizing film and for good reason. The book is one of the greatest of all time and there are enormous expectations for any Dune adaptation, yet it's worth noting that Dune is 800 pages long so turning the book into a single, 2.5 hour movie is incredibly difficult. It's apparent that there is a drop in quality about half way through the movie, this is because Lynch's budget and time frame weren't matching up with what the studio allowed for him. This unfortunately led to a rushed and fairly low quality ending to Dune. However, the Intro to this movie with Princess Irulan explaining the universe in space is my favorite of all time and the first half in general is excellent. All in all Lynch did all he could to save this movie and it is still enjoyable but the task was too big even for an excellent director like David Lynch

SciFi-Movies often do not stand the test of time, nowadays e.g. the original Star Wars or Star Trek flicks as well as Alien look ridiculous at certain times. But this is nothing compared to Dune, because here weak acting (or at least very weak characters) are put into the mix and make this supposedly master piece really bad. Why Dune is (still) considered a must-see by certain fans is beyond me and I suspect that the hype about director David Lynch is the main reason for that.

@seanmsu yep, it's a hot mess, but I throughly enjoy it. The visuals amaze me on every viewing.

I like Dune more each time I watch it. Perhaps not so much the film itself but how it reminds me of the 80s, a great time to be in your 20s.

dont understand the film at all, didnt read the original novel, but the scenes are really well built as to 1980s

A classic, but the one that got to cut up the script and toss out the scenes that just did not cut it, tossed out the wrong ones.
