What?!?!?!? Are you SOFT in the head? The remake I thought was a letdown in a sense. I didn't care that much for kyle's replacement character. Now his sister was HOT in both Dune remake and the 2nd one. Also the guy who played Patrick Stewarts part in the remake was BORING IMHO...he's done better, he was just WOODEN IMHO. I thought the Lynch version was great, a lot of dialogue/monologue but but the extended version was the one to watch. I did (and still do) enjoy it.
One that would have to be done like LotR's is Stephen R. Donaldson's Thomas Covenant, the unbeliever series. FANTASTIC story! I've read it at least 3 times. I have 2 of the final chronicles in hardback (like the original series). That would be a hard pressed movie to translate.
One that I thought was a very good/close translation was an old 80's flick - Dead and Buried. Read book, found and watched movie and was like WOW! Just like the book! LOL.
But Dune isn't that bad. I've never read the books though so I can't compare them. I may look for them in hardback some time. Love it due to patrick stewart, kyle, his fathers character and his mom (HOT back then! ;-) ).
But the remake I thought could have been better (harkonen(sp) dude was waaaaaaaaaay better in lynch's IMHO).
