Intro

Hi there. Let's see, born in 1971 in Baltimore, earned a degree in filmmaking with all the studiousness and focus of Jeff Spicoli. The public library where I live (San Francisco) has an incredibly broad and accessible video library, so I used an unemploymentationary sabbatical to see all the great f...

Zachary Mayo is correct

I found a dvd aficianado that seconds ZM's opinion that the British version is the best, with a great documentary that is only missing David himself. In the French doc they have some video of him on set, and he looks strangely "Directorial", in a pejorative sense. No wonder he loves his dv...

Dealbreaker! Merde!

I will keep that in mind, sloclub. You just know the tv's will get much better and be much cheaper in a few short years. Check out the fcc website: did you know it's HD or nothing in 2009? It was news to me. So hello again. I'm glad to see people are looking at this. Dune good. My news this time is ...

Report: european "Dune: Ultimate Edition"

I have returned. Good news and somewhat expensive news. Dune: Ultimate Edition is indeed available at Amazon.fr for a song, about $20 total. The US version has nothing on it. The print is beautiful, the sound is better... you can't go wrong. (Ah, but you can go wrong - see April 15 post) It is so, m...

The deed is done

I went ahead and ordered it on Amazon - $20 shipping included. Can't beat that. I'll reconnect in a couple of weeks when it comes.

Thankee Kindly

Amazon.fr will have to be it for the time being. You're probably right that some admirers of Lynch's career feel that Dune is the red-headed stepchild, and therefore it's hard to find someone that likes Dune enough to seek out the ideal version. I read that France is the only country where Dune made...

Hi folks. Anyone have the French dvd of Dune?

Hi. The recent Dune dvd edition has overwhelmed me with nostalgia. It's obvious, though, that the picture is far from what it should be. I recently got an all-region player (though I'm far away from a hi-def commitment), and I read that the French dvd release has a much better transfer. Can anyone p...
