i'm very impressed that someone has put together a thoughtful fan edit of David Lynch's Dune - that has been crying out for some serious re-editing since it's release.
Or rather: it has made Dune fans cry out to get Lynch lynched.
One thing is adapting a story for another platform (ie, book->movie) - I'm all for that. But making changes that make no sense? No thank you. One of the cool things about the fremen is that they're mad elite with their Krys knives, and can take on the Sardaukar troops just using their knives. Wtf did Lynch add those "weirding modules"? And why is baron Harkonnen depicted as a raving lunatic, when he in fact is a stone-cold calculating psychopath? And why is he flying madly around, when he's (in the book) just using the lifters to reduce his body mass so he can walk?
Iirc there were also some other things that pissed me off, but it's been some years since I saw the movie. It's really a shame that Lynch messed up several aspects, as I like the visual style (I absolute adore the visual effect used for the Holzmann shields), and a bunch of the actors were decently cast.
