Dune series

November 8, 2007

I’ve become a bit obsessed with the series. I’m on the second/fourth book currently. I liked the D. Lynch movie, but so far.. watching the TV series, I’m not impressed. After watching Children of Dune, I realize that it was the second and third book all mashed into one. I did think that series was pretty good. I hate the fact that the cast of the TV mini series of Dune and Children of Dune have different casts. Not all of them, but enough to make a difference. Thankfully, at least Paul, Chani and the Princess are the same. Stilgar, Lady Jessica, and Duncan are all different. Blech. It’d be like watching the Tolkien films and having different actors play the main characters. It sorta sucks. Oh well.

The books ROCK, the series… I’ve liked and the movie, well.. in my mind, it’ll always be the original.
