Scrolling around HBO last night and I saw that Dune (1984) version is playing!

So I port over and... someone screwed up!

It's the 2021 version being billed as the 1984 version.

About damned time that it gets to HBO (as opposed to HBO Max)!

Just finished watching it on TV. I recorded it from HBO a few days ago.

Even on my small screen it's an incredible movie.

Wait... what?

Which one? The 2021 version or the 1984 version?

The 1984 version certainly wasn't a great movie, but it had its charms and Lynch actually made a pretty good movie given the constraints of fitting a 9 million page book into a 2 hour movie.

The 1984 version you saw must have been a totally different 1984 version than the one I saw.

The 1984 movie was a decent highlight reel, but far too campy for my taste.  It did have memorable visuals.

Yeah, it was straight up 80's sci-fi cheese. Schlocky, but fun enough to enjoy with a couple beers.

It was no Ice Pirates, though...  =D

Yes, it was very campy, which is part of its overall fun.

It's the big hair movie of 1980s sci fi movies.

To answer a question that had popped up in my mind on whether or not Alia referred to the Baron as grandfather in the book.


In the new movie, the Baron refers to the Duke as "cousin."

I knew in the book that there had been some indications that the Harkonens and Atreides houses were related by blood.

Not sure how I feel about this especially with José Ferrer still stuck in my mind as the Emperor

Actually, I think Walken would have made a GREAT Baron Harkonnen...

Well, he's not a floating fat man, but he does float, and he walks without rhythm, so doesn't attract worms, so he should be in the movie.
