This is getting close.

I really remember loving this as a child.

Im watching the original now to get a sense of what its all about again. I feel it super fucking convoluted though. The names, the places, the way the story is told. Maybe its just the weird names and dated designs and graphics.

I hope i enjoy the new one!

I already saw this on the 5th and really liked it. I guess the US and UK release dates are over a month later than what they are in most of the Europe.

I’m still bothered by a shot in the trailer where they first show Paul with the blue eyes spiking the lens and it’s just the most blank expression ever. I can’t tell if it is just to try and have an emphatic beat of it in the trailer or what.

He wants you to look him in the eyes while he passes gas.

If it's a wet fart, does that get recycled back into the suit?

I enjoyed it....maybe a little surprised I didn't love it. I don't really have a reason why it was well made.

It was well made because the people involved care a lot and gave it their best effort.

This is the bond of water. We know the rites. A man's flesh is his own; the water belongs to the tribe.

Makes sense. That's the earliest showtime at the local Regal cinemas around here, too

I've been thinking about why I liked not loved this. I didn't care for Paul. Not the actor just the character. I mean "the one" is always the least interesting character in these sort of things but I just wanted more Jessica, more Leto, more Duncan, more Dr. Yueh, more Gurney (even in the books there is never enough Gurney) but necessarily I admit they spend most of the time on Paul. I mean they have too it's the story but I wanted more time with the others. Sorta wish it was a series.
