Saw Dune2. I love the books, and part 1. I was much less happy with part 2. I am not even sure how they are going to reconcile a few plot shifts from the books at this point.
I enjoyed it - I thought it fleshed out the original book's storyline quite well, honestly.

I do think they're going to have to make part 3 (based on 'Messiah') so that people can see the full arc of what Herbert was trying to say.

They have to now as they left those who have not read the books totally hanging.

But what the heck is he doing with Chani? That plot line is a 100% break away from the books, and she was key to his success as the wars play out.

Denis explained that those who did not read the books needed a more obvious hint as to what the story was about, so as to avoid the 'hero worship' the whole story is a warning against.

Haven't watched the latest Dune film yet, but it was required reading in a college English class I took with SciFi as the theme. That was one cool class! If I ever find the required reading book list, I will post it. Even include Vonnegut's "The Sirens of Titan".

Last night I re-watched "The Day After Tomorrow" for the umpteenth time. That is a really good movie!
