Also having seen Jodowsky rant about ecology and colonialism first hand, they should unironically get him to play a completely nuts version of Liet Kynes.

This is the best of all ideas.

For real. I want this very badly. And I feel like we're owed one, since the universe took David Bowie from us before he could play Niander Wallace in BR2049.

This is another absolute robbery. Leto is easily the worst part of 2049. His role is weird, but he absolutely fails to sell it. I think maybe the contacts were a mistake, but still. And yet, if I imagine dropping Bowie into the same spot and all other things being equal, same dialogue, same shots, etc, it becomes fantastic.

I am also concerned that the Jodorowsky Dune documentary has set impossible expectations, (also, did anyone grab the film rights for The Incal?)

Pretty sure they can CG in a golden toilet cheap now.

It's a bad movie but I have a soft spot for Dead or Alive because of the dad trying to be supportive of his daugther while beating the crap out of her.

Agreed on this. It's definitely got some variant of the Mortal Kombat energy.

I liked the trailer a lot!


I noticed the trailer line was a crusade is coming, but remember it as a jihad in the book. That might actually resonate better in 2020, since Americans generally believe that terrible religious wars are things other people do.

Which is weird though, because uhhh... Crusades were absolutely a thing and I am not sure that’s a “gentler” word.

I assumed that might've happened because Villeneuve makes slow, beautiful movies that lovely general audiences don't respond to. After BR2049, I was shocked they let him make this.

This makes me sad because it is 100% my jam. A four hour cut of 2049 that also somehow manages to excise all of awkward Jared Leto's scenes would be amazing.

The highest-grossing sci-fi movie is about blue cat people who connect their tails together to have sex.

Nuh uh it was their… hair… brain.

Man, part of what really wounds the Lynch movie is the awful, awful sound mix. It's just painful.

I think part of it is that the cost of interplanetary transport of sizable military forces requires both the assistance of third parties and carries an extreme price tag.

Not only the cost I think, I imagine because the Guild monopolizes interstellar travel, it really makes waging total war difficult because the Guild will either refuse to transport you because they don’t want to disrupt the status quo, or they will transport you but you can’t trust that they won’t slip the news to your adversary

Yes. Before the Guild will “permit” you to wage war, you have to more than offset their losses or offer ironclad deniability.

The Guild already has functionally unlimited influence and has already basically accomplished all of their objectives.

Why would they want the hassle of running a galactic empire? It doesn’t gain them anything else.

So we are just dismissing the failson novels where the Butlerian Jihad involved wars against Terminators?
