but both of them screwed up the subtleties of the book tho
I agree that both versions did indeed screw up, In regards to the presentation of the world described in the book.
However, I'm personally the other way around when it comes to DUNE, I find the 1984 movie to be the weak and 2000 Sci/Fi Channel version, To actually be quite good, Despite the much lower budget and studio bound atmosphere.
As for ELAM.
I really doubt it's going to do well?.....The religious and psychological aspects may just work against it, In mainstream cinema?
Of course, It may also do very well and draw new people in?, But generally ELAM is for us fans, Who will probably spend hours comparing everything?
I'm really looking forward to the action sequences though, EVA's Running and Jumping things and firing huge partical cannons
