One of the things I really appreciated about the series was the nutso couture costumes. It really helped the characters feel relatable but alien at the same time.

I really loved the alien look of the movie. It doesnít look like anything else, and itís one of its strengths. Iím hoping Villeneuve goes properly off the wall.

Off-the-shelf gloves for the heroes doesn't compare favorably to Lord of the Rings though in terms of level of commitment and energy on the production.

I say this because people on twitter compared it to LOTR.

I can see that they both occupy a similar niche, one fantasy, the other sci-fi of an all-encompassing world created from the ground up.

A lot of sci-fi tv/film media is based in the not too distant future with lots of 'here and now' elements just extrapolated up. Dune is a complete world so far in the future that any cultural touchstones we might have are long gone (ignoring the fact that you still have names like Duncan Idaho in there), so there is a reasonable expectation that the universe displayed on screen should have the same level of everything being unrecognisable to us. Barely altered store-bought stuff showing up on screen feels a little cheap, honestly.

Ian McNiece is so good as the Baron in the miniseries. Some of the other actors are spotty; there's enough subpar or mediocre about the miniseries that I'd call it optional, but there's enough good about it that I usually encourage others to give it a chance.

Huh, I never saw this, but heís really good in this clip. I love the costuming work here.

Itís fun when you can single out an actor and just know theyíre headed for good things. I remember noticing Chadwick Boseman in a guest role on Fringe and thinking Iíd see him again in a bigger role. He was absolutely killing it, way more than the subject matter deserved.

The pirates of the Caribbean theme is lifted from The Lion King 2, oddly enough (although as Zimmer did the incidental music for LK1 it's not clear if it's plagiarism or not, as some things may have been kept back)

The main positive I remember was that some of the costumes were neat and I liked that everybody had weird accents. Some of that was probably just from hiring cheap Eastern European actors but I donít think Iíve seen another sci fi thing were people spoke in wildly different accents. In a real galactic empire the diversity of accents in a shared language seems like it would be staggering.
