To be fair I quite liked the one with Sting in it but the book was so much better.
Tailed off a bit on the second book mind.

I am however really looking forward to the new film.

I agree the books got more and more ridiculous as they went on. Even the first one seems dated now in some respects but there's no overstating the impact it had and future sci-fi it inspired.

Are they still worth reading for someone who likes sci-fi or are they good in more of a nostalgic kind of way?

I’ve never seen the filum or read the books, they were the in thing amongst the shall we say the less socially adept when I was at school. The filum from memory looked pretty exciting, don’t know much about it besides giant worms, desert and The Police front man Sting was in it.

The Jodorowsky one is good. The film about the film he didn't make.

I saw another recent version on DVD a while ago ... maybe the year before last .. brings out the essential misogynies of the story wery well.

Think Game of Thrones. With giant worms ( wyrms?) instead of Dragons.

Loved reading these years ago, all worth reading, but the first two are the best.
The Dune novels written by Frank's son Brian Herbert and Kevin J Anderson, aren't a patch on the originals.IMG_20210930_123612.jpg

Very good film. Long film. Doesn't seem long but is.

Excellent. That little guy can really act.
