In A World of Scrutiny Dune is Still a Beautiful Film

Postby DLW » Sun Jun 16, 2013 1:42 am

I know a lot of people both Lynch and/or Herbert fans talk about how the script or story-line wasn't what they were expecting from Lynch. One of the reasons that i love the film is actually because of everything! I absolutely love the script and story, corny? Absolutely! I love it nonetheless.

This for example makes me laugh every single time!

I just love the cinematography of the film as well, the colors, the atmosphere and just over appearance of the film is magnificent!


I just wanted to post some love for Dune because it deserves it!

Look at that green, those whites and reds. It all just goes so well together! It's like picking ice-cream out just by the color, it all taste good but the look is a huge plus! Maybe it's just me, but the coloring of films just make my soul happy!

The characters are all a bit overboard and i enjoy that a lot, it plays into the campy-corniness of the movie, yet they all look just like what i would envision Mr. Herberts' characters to look like!

Welcome, DLW. There is a small contingent of Lynch fans who love Dune--the reason we have this included in the forum. Have you read what others have written? Actually, I see some of the characters differently in my head from reading the books. I still love the movie. You might like to go look at the Dunenovels forum.

PS. Please make your pictures an attachment or they won't stay in the forum.

Re: attachments, when you're making a post, read down after you've written something; under the submit button, there will be a title Upload Attachment in dark blue. Have the picture on your computer and browse until you find it. Then go to the second submit button under poll. That should do it. We've had issues with people losing their pictures if they use imageshack or something like that.

Getting straight to the point, I think Lynch's movie is fantastic. It does not conform to the mainstream audience's expectations, and we can all be forever thankful for that!! It is not a perfect movie by any means, but the ambience, the atmosphere, and the sheer eeriness could only have been conjured by Lynch. Dune is a rare case of having a fantastic book, a movie, and a video game (1992 Cryo Interactive) all capturing a certain elusive spirit. A person who becomes enmeshed in the Dune world will always be able to tell whether they are being fed genuine material or commercial pulp (hence the failure of many allegedly Dune-themed endeavours).

Hello Nighthawk, a man after my own heart. I love Dune but have to lay off watching it for about 10 years. I totally agree with you. :D

Yes, overexposure. I do that a lot with movies and books.
