The highest function of ecology is understanding consequences.

The extent to which Kynes, his father, their background, and their ecological motivations were pushed aside in the film version of Dune is utterly tragic. And in favour of what? Third Stage Guild Navigators and weirding modules? Please.

I’d pay good money [as opposed to what? counterfeit tender?] to see a LotR-style adaptation that maybe takes some liberties with the details of the plot, but gets the broad strokes right—the ecological emphasis, the religious and political nuances, all that stuff in the appendices. Maybe the miniseries does all this … I haven’t seen it, if I’m honest.

THIS. THIS. TEN THOUSAND TIMES THIS.

Actually you know what? Dear HBO, you want your next Game of Thrones style show? Do Dune. Just the first book. Ignore the so-called prequels (what prequels there were no fucking prequels) and if you do the later books do the sensible thing and stop at Children.

The SyFy miniseries was… Okay? The plot hewed closer to the books but the set design and costume design were uninspired to say the least.

You mean the harkonnen propaganda? It was dull, lifeless, a stage play mixed with gorgeous European location shooting. After the opulence and coherence of Lynch’s dune, it felt like a disjointed, soggy mess.

Unsuited fremen sitting at wooden picnic tables In the open air? Blasphemy. Having a random human head statue start pouring water into the sand? HERESY!

Yeah, basically :/ and it still didn’t get Kynes right.
Hence my desire for something with the scope and budget of Game of Thrones, using Mark Zug’s art as inspiration (http://markzug.com/dune/)

If we really wanted to get crazy, use Moibus’ designs (http://www.duneinfo.com/unseen/moebius)

So long as we can get a bit of Giger’s Harkonnen flavor, I’m all for it (http://www.duneinfo.com/unseen/hr-giger)

SOLD. Nothing like Giger to make you appropriately villainous and horrifying. 

You say the sweetest things.
