I think this movie is slightly misunderstood. I try and imagine what it would have been like if David Lynch was given free reign to make the movie he
wanted. I think people's heads might have exploded.
I *do* own the extended "Alan Smithee" directors cut of the movie, the original theatrical release AND the Sci-Fi mini-series.
In defense of the original theatrical release: I'm familiar enough with the Dune saga that the dialogue isn't confusing, contains some brilliant cinematography, has a great cast, great scoring, and is huge and expansive in scope. The finished product isn't brilliant or what some people might consider "good", but to me It's like watching a three legged dog run a race, I can't help but root for it.
