STOMP'N ON INTO THE POWERLINES

My initial thought upon leaving DUNC2 tonight was that Dennis Villeneuve would probably do good adapting the Broken Earth trilogy, and I donít know what that says about me or about the movie

After going through the plot summaries of the other dune books, I would rather pretend everything stopped after Dune.

Not a bad take really. Can maybe extend it out another book or two while accepting a certain level of weird but books four and beyond are just cuckoo bananas bizarro literature.

I could agree with the second book, but after that, I dunno

Yeah just rewrite the bit to give closure and just let it end cleanly. There are so many good stopping points that you could pivot to.

Here we go again.
Opinions vary on just where the Dune books stop being worth reading, but I've never heard anyone say "just push through the bad one(s) and it gets good again."

It wasn't exactly high-brow, but I liked the stuff his son (?) did about the Butlerian Jihad. Don't think it counts for this though cause it was like 40 years later and, yeah, for ol' Herbert senior it started high, went off a cliff and crashed to the ground as time went on.

Does a bear split in the woods near Zheleznogorsk?
I think we could squeeze Leto II's worm shenanigans into two decent and weird movies. There's a ton of fluff to get rid of, but a Miles Teg flick would be cool.

c-spam cannot afford



I'd like to give a big thanks to forums poster tiny for sending me a lockpicking kit a couple years ago. I got my dad's old truck and he forgot to give me the key to the hitch lock. Popped that bad boy in like 10 seconds.

Stained, dirty, smells like weed, possibly a relic from the sixties.



You know how sometimes, as you're sitting there, watching a movie and drinking your drink, you start reflecting on the opportunities that passed you by? Feel that twang of sorrow at the knowledge that they'll never come again?

Yeah, I'll never not be butthurt that I didn't bid on any of the Fury Road cars.
