Another nice Baron moment: "christ, feyd. Stop trying to off me for one second and consider all of this is all for you"

That and head-baron didn't really seem that bad to have on tap, if you were already half-gone anyway.

Just started Heretics and I was going to say it's fine so far but then I remembered the bene gesserit liberals.jpg speech happened very near the beginning and who are these liberals that apparently kept owning you so thoroughly over the past 10years, that's not how leto would have referred to himself.

The actor for Paul is not a good choice and that drags it down.

I watched it today and while he's too old I think he did pretty well for having to do sensitive-moments-while-beefcake, like Jamis' death and prophetic dreams.

Feyd was having a blast. I looked the actor up, apparently after a dry patch he moved home, went to community college and became a nurse/physician assistant, so that's nice.

I remember when we had to rent dvd players out from the video store, I think this and maybe Princess Mononoke were like half of the selection available.

Just remembered Kynes' last scene, naked and delerious in the deep desert 'gently caress you Harkonnens, my work is not yet done! ... Oh dear a spicebloom' was kind of hilarious.

Getting near the end of Heretics and thought it had been pretty much on par for everything else, but just got to the "how many forms???" sex-nunnery and Miles Super-Teg, which is interesting just because its a character actually off on an adventure that isn't a pre-ordained mystical experience. Except it is because he's just evolved and everyone he meets is a secret agent working on his side. Or is he still under the t-probe? Let's find out! If anything I was sad the Tleilaxu got one chapter establishing them as a major old power and then like everything else they're quickly put in their place.

I like how you never really get to know Emperor Shaddam, while Paul and Irulan have opposite assessments of him, both probably valid.

Not really related but this made me think about how much I liked Farad'n's little arc, from youth who'd rather be reading, to just about getting a feel for politics and power, before falling instantly under the sway of Jessica. It pairs nicely with the later books and Miles and/or Duncan talking about how once you're in the BG's orbit there's no way out.

If Leto shouldn't recall those who died in battle, there's a chance he was also the killer, or killers, and possibly holds many more perspectives of any witnessed incident so he can probably build up a fair picture
