    That is like the most longest most boring movie ever - I tried once and ended up in a weird waking coma and my tongue went numb

    I've read all of the Frank Herbert Dune novels and I couldn't get through more than like 20 minutes of the movie. It was odd and not in a good way.

    Yeah on maybe the fourth try over a period of 15 years or so.

    It's a mess. There's a reason it's credited to Alan Smithee.

    The worst part and this is legit

    I did watch it

    I sat through it

    I know I did

    My eyes were open

    Not a memory of it was retained

    It was like I spent two hours on a chair against a wall

    for reals

    Sting gets angry.

    Some stuff...

    Fat guy floats around in the air

    End credits.

    I tried unsuccessfully a few times when I was younger but actually watched it through a few months ago. There were some things I liked about it. The worst thing IMO is the pacing and flow of the movie. It seems rather disjointed and lacking in context. I never read the book's myself. I think that's a problem a lot of people have with the movie, they really liked the books and the movie falls really short for them.

    I like David Lynch as a filmmaker but couldn't stand DUNE.
    Nuff said.

    I’ve seen it quite a few times. It has a really creepy vibe to me. I still skip that one weird scene when the baron drains that twink who’s trying to water the flowers.
