Pretty sure that in either Messiah or Children an Atreides (I want to say Alia) is going through their ancestral memory and Agamemnon makes an appearance

Yes, yes, but what is happening before Rabban walks in??? The establishing shot shows a landed Harkonnen spaceship. The Baron is flying around in a circle screaming incoherently, Feyd is in some sort of sauna machine, there's a guy laughing and adjusting some sort of control box??? musical instrument??? and there's a dwarf vacuuming the floor.

The Baron's zooming around because he's stoked his revenge plan worked

The laughing guy is Nefud, the Harkonnen guard captain (field promotion after his predecessor got a faceful of tooth gas)

The control box plays semuta music, which Nefud is addicted to (just like he was in the book!)

Dune wiki posted:

Semuta Music was a music played to elicit the effect of the drug, semuta. It had an eerie, atonal quality that was generally unmistakable.

The dwarf is just to be weird

I always thought of the inhabited parts of Caladan as warm (growing rice & poo poo) but I suppose if it's a bit chilly then the move to Arrakis is that much more of a wrench

Was it in Javier Bardem's contract that he got a bigger codpiece than anyone else

(also lol that after 35 years they still can't come up with a stillsuit costume that isn't a sweatbox)

recycle the sweat you have sure, not make you sweat more

also pretty sure if you poo poo in one of those costumes it doesn't get processed in the thigh pads

I think what's rubbing me the wrong way about the costumes is that they look mass-produced, and mass production seems at odds with the feudal setting - in fact it seems more in line with pre-Jihad "machine thinking" I guess.

Sietches had all kinds of mass production activity including stillsuit manufacturing

Was it mass production, though? I always envisaged it as more of a workshop/atelier thing.

The political system is feudal but it's still an advanced society with giant factories on wheels, nuclear weapons, airplanes, spaceships and so on.

Sure, but again, I saw them as made by craftsmen in guilds rather than a bunch of guys punching the clock on the ornithopter assembly line. Bespoke nukes :v:

Just seems to fit with the feudal setting and rejection of "machine thinking" more to me

Okay I do like the idea of bespoke nukes :v:

But really it's more all the stuff that's needed to get to the stage of making ornithopters or nuclear weapons or what have you. You can't make metal alloys or enriched uranium in an atelier.

But who knows, maybe they all just buy stuff from the Ixians.

Yeah you'd have to assume the base level of technology was such that you could make high tech like shields and spice crawlers with a feudal mode of production. And the keepers of the technology that makes it all possible (Ix, Richesse) are regarded with suspicion and regulated with a heavy hand (which tracks with the books iirc) since they're fundamentally antithetical to the whole structure of the economy.

All of which is to say I just want to see armour and swords and shield belts that are individualized and unique and cool and not stamped out at the Ford plant between shifts.

Isnt one of the stills they've released gurney and paul ostensibly looking at the first worm in the book

iirc you don't see much of the worm in the corresponding scene from the book - just the harvester getting swallowed up by a big hole, and oh look, the hole has teeth

Here we go:

quote:

A wide hole emerged from the sand. Sunlight flashed from glistening white spokes within it. The hole's diameter was at least twice the length of the crawler, Paul estimated. He watched as the machine slid into that opening in a billow of dust and sand. The hole pulled back.

Then a little later

quote:

The worm had withdrawn into the depths and now, near where the crawler had been, two figures could be seen moving north away from the sand depression. They appeared to glide over the surface with hardly a lifting of dust to mark their passage.

Not showing a full worm would be a loving cocktease tho
