A beginning is a very delicate time. In 1984, the long awaited film version of Frank Herbert’s epic novel Dune came to the silver screen. What happened next? The worst box office disaster in history! Sad to say it, but mostly everyone who saw Dune hated it except for the few who actually read the book! I’ve always loved this movie but if I ever said that in public I was usually beaten with large rocks or a baseball bat
Yo, B, I gotcher back. I love this movie too — both versions!
Quotes I carry in my PDA:
It is by will alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the juice of Sapho that thoughts acquire speed – The lips acquire stains – The stains become a warning – It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.
I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear… I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
Sector 6 – 80 — copy the sixth — the summit — the eight the quadrant over the ninth plus eighty — four circles — weave the eighty and call the fourth copy — enter nine — seven by seven a seven the seven call seven B seven — enter the circles call the sixth copy the sixth over the summit…. eight. [...] Eight…. Thufir Hawat… Mentat… Master of Assassins.
They shall come all for violence: their faces shall sup as the east wind. And they shall gather the captivity of the sand. [...] Behold as a wild ass in the desert go I forth to my work.
We Fremen have a saying… “God created Arrakis to train the faithful.” One cannot go against the word of God.
Bring on your baseball bats, mofos!
