And with over two and a half hours runtime, he is able to concentrate more on the small details, than Lynch ever could.
In some ways, Lynch's Dune actually got closer to the mind-bending strangeness of Herbert's novel; it had a touch of visionary madness that this movie could use a little more of.
This is a technically brilliant, visually amazing movie with a top-notch cast and deep sci-fi concepts.
If you know nothing about the books that form the Dune saga and care nothing about the man who wrote them, then you might enjoy this film.
I watched the movie with my girlfriend and my cousin.
And then there's a swaggering as swordmaster Duncan, who seems to be the only one having any fun.
