Movie Review - Frank Herbert's Dune - Born in ...
Author Last Post

For any of you wishing a respite from the tumult of daily life, consider going to see Frank Herbert's Dune on the big screen. Here's a deliciously long and detailed commentary on the film, if you wish. I reread Dune several weeks ago. It's held up very well, as has Asimov's The Foundation Trilogy, which I also just reread. Too, I watched David Lynch's 1984 screen adaptation of Dune, which I thought was a discombobulated mess.

Dune was mostly written by Herbert at 412 Mississippi on Potrero Hill.
