It's over-stylized to the point of no longer being recognizable language but for some reason I dig it. Too bad it's a fan-made thing.

Like, that's the thing about Leto that I notice. He's not a bad actor by any means and, if he has good material, he can actually do really remarkably well with it. But he just keeps being given the absolute worst material...

Then he and/or his agents suck at choosing roles that suit him.

I was just browsing a Dune wiki and stumbled on what I guess is an unmedicated schizophrenic who wants to invoke Templar law and take over the franchise so he can save it.

https://dune.fandom.com/wiki/Templars:_Predecessors_to_the_Zensunni

quote:


Templars: Predecessors to the Zensunni

I, Robin Harrison Hart, the first to found the Templars legitimately, and without murders to impugn the Templars indefinitely therefore; took over the Dune franchise in an honorable and legalized manner and tone. Templar Law copyrighted it before I woke up from my long stupor in Eugene, OR. We, are honored to inherit this legacy. There is no other way about it; we have the future of it already! Several of my edits to the Earth historical and fictional page, deleted before written, what I just wrote above! So I'll see what this means, right now then. I am already richly famous, and an example of it is on a mainstream item here or there. Poems and illustrations about my legacy, only a year into it. So if you do that to us, you're so stupid. YOU. Are stupid. Especially when you refuse to talk about it at all. That is never, legal in any way. When the future of this famous and important franchise is on the line; you don't do that, when you care about it. So I'm assuming trolls did that somehow. We'll classify it as, 'Expanded Dune,' lore for now. I have all my original materials backed up doubly. So no worries if you want to delete it. I'll just post it here. And if you ban me from it; I'll ban you! Your site will end. By popular demand, by the will of the people using it all the time. Yes I am an rear end and an ordinary prankster at times. Now I will test if edits to this, article can be made in real time. (FYI The Sardaukar would even disdain you for it. We are saying for now, playfully only mind you; that we are to be the predecessors of the Padishah, not Atreides. Of course they are inter-related.)!


Yeah. Get real. Only slaves do that poo poo. (CONFIRMED THAT FRANK AND BRIAN HERBERT ARE OK. Frank is just 'a ghost,' however... like I was? So silly to say it that way. It's ok for now to.)!

<Literally; I, Robin Harrison Hart, took over the DUNE franchise, honorably with intentions to make it better. It is copyrighted to Templar laws, so it can't be touched by their copyright issues. We will be polite, and we won't promise more than that.>

we were talking about Feyd's shorts yesterday and then I saw a Tom Selleck meme about shorts and I did this because I have nothing useful or real in my life

Eh, there is more than enough good and awesome things about Lynch Dune that makes it worth seeing. Some of the performances, many of the visuals, the creed/chant of the human computers that Lynch wrote in as shorthand to understanding what was up with the goofy haired eyebrow dudes, all cool.

While seeing it also make note of all the poorly crafted, poorly chosen or straight-up stupid ideas that also make the film and wonder how many people involved in the production realized they were working on the same movie.

Maybe there's some problems in post but lots of other movies release trailers with incomplete effects and music so who knows. Hasn't been much in the way of marketing at all, has there?

Drugs don't make you an rear end in a top hat they just amplify the rear end in a top hat within.

When I saw The Empire Strikes Back in '81 they handed out little booklets that gave a synopsis of the plot and a character guide.

Hearing someone besides Brad Dourif recite the mentat mantra is going to be off-putting and loving wild.

That was made up just for the Lynch movie as a clever info dump so the viewer understands what the weirdo sipping juice is up to. No reason for it to be in this movie at all.

edit: obviously beaten but I'll add the little manta beats the poo poo out of yet another voice-over whispering something like "I will now drink my speed juice and be smart as gently caress"

fuckmaybe I'm just on stoned but I think they shose that particular Floyd song because "all that is now and all that is gone and all that's to come" mirrors the kwitsach haderach's total knowledge of human history and "everything under the sun" is a "it is a dessert lol"

I hate Duncan Idaho's name. It's always put me in mind of an ambient temperature mayonnaise salad from a midwestern July 4th picnic.
