  1. I hadn’t heard of the upcoming reboot. I also didn’t know that there was a Dune TV show. O.O

    5:23 – So I take it you would not be in favor of finding Five Teenagers With Attitude to help you defeat a space witch, huh?

    7:43 – At least they didn’t get Pee Wee Herman to play their voice. “I’M THE NAVIGATOR! HA-HAA!”

    10:41 – It’s “har KO nen”. Because that’s how Walter C. Dolnez pronounces it.

  3. Sorry but in 1984 when Lynch’s movie came out, “Islamophobia” was not a thing. The big bad was still the USSR.

      Right, because it’s not as if numerous terrorist acts were performed by the PLO and other Islamic terror groups all over the world throughout the 1970s, such as the massacre of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympics, and it’s not like Islamic fundamentalists had taken over Iran and the U.S. embassy there in 1979 and held a group of Americans hostage for over a year.

      I grew up in the 80s. Islamic terrorism was considered a threat back then as well. The PLO, the Iran Hostage Crisis, Lebanon – all of these were very prominent news events of that time.

    It’s explained somewhere in the book (most likely in the appendix that covers the ecology of Dune) that oxygen is produced by the bacteria that process worm poop into spice.

  5. I’m picardosexual too. Gay except for a thing for Patrick Stewart.

  6. You know what sand is? Silicon Oxide, notice the oxide part. Aracis has a form of in sand living plankton that converse Silicon Oxide in to its base elements releasing the oxygen in to the atmosphere. Similar like on earth most of the oxygen comes form plankton not trees or other vegetation.
