Thank goodness this was green-lit. To leave such a work unfinished would have sucked. If only Lynch had the CGI available these days.
I quite like Lynch's Dune, and have seen it several times over the decades. I think there was a 3.5 hour directors cut at one point? Even with his deviations from the book, he captured the heart of the story and presented it with unique vision.

I rewatched last night... nice to be able to do that.
I NEVER rewatch stuff but the movie was just sticking with me, had to see it again.
Stuff that seemed to drag a bit in the first viewing now seemed drenched in purpose and flew by... great movie.

Villeneuve and Zimmer knocked it out of the park, the cast was excellent too... my only complaint is some wooden dialog here and there but the characters are kind of wooden on purpose in those parts so it fits.
I listened to Zimmer's score before seeing the movie and found it quite grating. Lots of his scores stand on their own, but I just couldn't get this one. After watching the movie and hearing the score in context, I think it's perfect.

I’ve watched it twice and feel similar to Sepharo in that the second watching went down better. Re-watched Dune’84, still amazed at how much was packed into those 2 ¼ hours.

I went back and watched "Arrival" in the theater for a second time. And I've watched it several times since then. I hope I am as happy with Dune.

I'm curious how Denis will continue to butcher the source material.

I love the source material, and I think it was a pretty faithful adaptation. Sure some things were glossed over, some minor things were changed and others were left up to the imagination. Was it perfect? Probably not, but there is only so much you can cram in to two and a half hours, but what is in there is pretty great and very well done. I look forward to part 2 and hopefully a trilogy or maybe even more movies at some point.
As an avid consumer of said source material, this adaptation is quite faithful. This seems to be yet another of Cutter's attempts to being edgy by not liking something that is popular and good.

There handful of things that were changed and/or omitted were inconsequential to the story, and what was thematically changed fit rather perfectly in Herbert's universe. Hell, even the swap of Kynes' gender was brilliant in my opinion, and I felt their death in the book was a bit hollow considering the impact the character actually had. I also liked the fleshing out of the stewardship of Arrakis in the beginning of the movie...it wasn't in the books, but it helped enlighten those that may not have prior knowledge of the story without it alienating those that do.

I believe half the people that don't like this adaptation is that they grew up on Lynch's equally awesome, yet far less faithful, version (if I see one more complaint that Feyd wasn't in this movie, I'm going to kick a desert mouse)...and the other half are just snobby "books are always better than the movie" purists.

I rarely want to watch something again right after I've seen it, but I want to see this again ASAP. In the last 20 years, probably only Fellowship of the Ring and Pacific Rim have inspired multiple watchings in the same week.

I read the books... It was pretty faithful to me.

Also, F'yes for part 2!

The source material is already butchered. That’s why no one has been able to do better.
