    Anyone who likes Lynch's version is an idiot. I give him some credit in that the movie got the atmosphere and the characters fairly well... but he completely fails for changing the whole damn storyline and adding stupid things like "weirding modules" and "heartplugs". Just dumb.

    Anyone catch Beauty and the Geek UK? The girls were totally US-smart (like who faught the British over the Faulkland Islands) and the guys were hardly geeky.
    Dude, you have one fucked up definition of smart. Don't you think you might expect Brits to know who went to war with them over the Falkland Islands? It was probably a little better reported and remembered over here than in the U.S, and it's hardly ancient history.

    Lynch's version sucked donkey balls, but it was still better than the piece of ****, made-for-TV version. Muad'dib looked like he could've been Ewan MacGregor's cross-dressing younger brother, in spite of the fact that Herbert made it quite obvious that the Atreides were supposed to be Meditteranean. ****, they even described Paul having a Roman nose and eating baclava.

    Have you been to the US? I'm positive the 'dumb' girls here couldn't tell you who the US fought in World War 1 or 2.

    $10 says that I'd easily find a few chicks who don't believe that the U.S. fought in WWI.

    Any Dune movie without the line "Shai-Hulud! I have failed you!!!" by definition sucks balls

    If you think that was bad, you'd have hated the version Jodorowsky was going to do in the 60's. Although, Salvador Dali was on board to play Baron Harkonnen, Pink Floyd was going to do the soundtrack, and Moebious did the character/costume designs.

    Which is why someone needs to petition Peter Jackson to make a Dune movie (or 6). If it isn't created exactly as the book describes with the exact dialogue, word-for-word, then it sucks.

    Slightly back on topic, do these fremen martial LARPers do any crysknife training, or is it just crappy hand-to-pole ****?

    They have some secret weapon that they can't describe or show pictures of on the web becuase it is their secret 133t weapon.

    It apparently has a holow section that they use for carrying stuff... Don't ask me why.
