The Non-Toxic Fanboys Podcast

62: Dune (1984) Is A Terrible, Terrible Movie

October 7, 2021

Glenn & Scott prepare for the upcoming release of the new Dune movie by reviewing the first Dune movie. They evaluate it as a movie and as a Dune adaptation, and find it severely lacking on both counts. Along the way they discuss the various versions of the movie, what story elements survived the adaptation process and what story elements did not, the pitfalls that many book adaptations fall into, the use and appropriate placement of camp, the sexual politics of the Baron Harkonnen, and whether or not the writers of Dune (1984) understood the point of the novel Dune (1965).
