    Jodorowsky is an esotericist. Thankfully he did not make Dune.

    You have strength. You shall be known as Usual - which is the strength of the base of the pillar. This is your secret name in our troop.

    The biggest problem with Dune is the prologue by Virginia Madsen is the best part of the film and everything else fails to live up to the opening.

    Looking at Denis Villeneuve’s recent works - Sicario, Arrival, and Blade Runner - he’s probably the one director who can actually give Dune the treatment it deserves.

    I’d be at a theater tomorrow night if I wasn’t working.

    My buddy/co-worker just told me at lunch he is taking his wife on their date night to go see it. He said he is going to watch the David Lynch rendition tonight to prep.

    Probably true, while I wasn't very impressed with Blade Runner 2049, I really liked Arrival and the ideas it explored. No matter what I'll have to watch it, I'm just not getting my hopes up.

    Watched it tonight. My son and I liked it, my wife hated it. It was pretty good. Deviates from the 80s version, IIRC? Frankly (ha!) I forget the book details. Good stuff. I liked the 80s Jessica better- much more concubine. Special effects good, not over powering. Less steam-punk than the 80s version. Really hope they finish it off. Might go see it at an IMAX for fun.
    I just did two lines of powdered wig powder, cranked up some Lee Greenwood, and recited the BoR. - Outlander Systems

    My wife and I are too young to be versed in Dune-lore. We plan to watch it tonight after the kids go down. If I manage to stay awake, I'll report back with my thoughts.
