    Dune 2020

    anyone else looking forweard to this ? probably my favorite books and ive read them many times over the years, frank herberts dune has been remade -directed by villeneuve (filming finished and in editing stage) looks like a good cast hopefully it capture more from the books than the previous film and series did (a difficult job due to the books complexity )

    That's great news! Dune is one of my all time favourite books (I always thought it tailed off as the series continued)..... I also quite liked the original film.
    This remake could be really good. I've had a quick look at the cast list and it seems spot on.

    I still think, decades later, that the first and original Dune was the best novel Iíve ever read. I despised the movie first time around (and genuinely resented its release) but have high hopes for this one.

    Still love the book, one of my absolute favourites. (Also the first couple of sequels, although less so, with diminishing returns from there on in.) Hated the movie*. So, I'm looking forward to this, but with some trepidation.

    (* Apparently Frank Herbert was very happy with the movie, or so I read. No idea why.)

    although they are a good concept in that film there were no weirding modules in the books :(

    the whole series of books are very complex and span thousand of years , to date i dont think ive ever read any other books that give so much background information to a story -from space travel to engineering religions .

    Really looking forward to this, hope they get it right this time! (Although I must admit to liking the first movie for what it was!)

    I'd be staggered if Villeneuve messes this up, everything he has done so far has been excellent in my opinion. I guess Enemy was a bit divisive.

    I'm a big fan of the first novel. I've only read the first and then the sixth for some reason. I though the Lynch film looked great but was a poor, heavy handed adaptation. Hoping this one will be much better.

    Only read the first two so far, excellent writing. I watched the first series on Netflix, very well made, but now on Prime so haven't seen any more.
    Try the Ringworld books by Larry Niven.

    have not read any of the books yet but started watching the series a few weeks ago on someones recommendation on here (im halfway through season 4 now ) - apart from some dodgy belters accents (seems to switch between cockney and patois on a few actors) its been a great series .

    I cannot wait for this, Dune was an incredible space epic.

    For those interested, it was nearly made into a film in the 70s by a chap called Jodorovski, who cast Orson Welles, Mick Jagger, and Salvador Dali.

    I've read huge amounts of sc-fi over the years including all the afore but The Expanse has engrossed me more than most. I read all 8 books and am on the last 150 pages of the last in the series, Tiamat's Wrath which I coerced my local Library into buying. Tbh I can hardly bear to finish it. Same with the series, Ep 10 of series 5 still un-watched.

    Funny as I have only just started reading Dune, about 100 pages in. So it hasnít really started yet!

    Donít know why it has taken me so long to get round to reading it. I remember watching the Film when I was a teenager and not really getting it so maybe that put me off!

    Never heard of the Expanse books but have noticed the series on Netflix but not watched it!

    Currently reading "Cibola burn" ... It's not quite Dunesque series, more like Hyperion Cantos with old 50ies space opera feel and cyberpunk elements.

    Dune is unique in many ways.
