The Spice Flows

 A new Dune trailer dropped yesterday.  If the trailers are an indication, the movie is going to be really good.   Enjoy.


 

Dune will be portrayed in two movies. The Dune universe is simply too much to portray in two to three hours. The first movie apparently ends where Paul and Jessica hook up with the Fremen. The cast appears to be outstanding and it appears Villeneuve is staying fairly close to the book.  No more weirding modules or falling rain, thank goodness!

Dave Bautista, a known worthless libbie communist is in this. I will stick to the original.

I highly recommend any audiobook versions over this SJW trash. Of course Kngfish will be there opening night, mouth agape, like a good little soy bugman.

Close to the book? It is literally scripted to be:
House Harkonnen & Spacing Guild = Evil Nazi White Supremacist Colonist
House Atreides & Fremen = Good Judeo Multicultural Saviors of Arrakis.

And to keep Paul from being a “great white hope” savior of the people of color, he is portrayed by a Jewish actor.

It’s all so tiresome.

Kingfish said...

House Atreides is a descendant of Agamemnon. That makes them of Greek descent, obergruppenfuhrer

@Kingfish,
They are descendants of the Titan Agamemnon, a Cymek.
Go read The Butlerian Jihad, Kingfish.

Reading Frank Herbert is like reading Tolkien or Faulkner. Its dense. It would take a 10 year mini series to do the Dune saga justice

Kingfish said...

The original books written by Frank referred to the original Agamemnon.

I have the prequels and let's just say I don't consider them to be Dune Canon.


Oh, and the Fremen were Moslems or Moslem descendants. That will make your head spin.

The Fremen are the descents of “Buddhislamists” and their race is ambiguous.

little known fact: Herbert and L. Ron Hubbard were brothers

Dune always reminded me of a scifi “Lawrence of Arabia” which was released in theaters 3 years before Dune was published. Melange always seemed like an allegory for oil and the Fremen were the allegorical Beduins who united behind TE Lawrence, who was from a very wet place called the UK.

You gotta love Kingfish. He goes for the balls and doesn't look up.

Interesting comment, 1:51. Can you fit in the Bene Geserrit?(Probably misspelled, but I'm feeling lazy.)

It's been discussed here before, that 'Dune' requires a serial treatment, a la 'Game of Thrones'. I still agree with that, but I'll take what I can get. I liked the trailer.

Any release date given yet?

@2:42
I don’t know that the Bene Gesserit came from Lawrence of Arabia. However, I suspect that the Ottoman Officer who raped/tortured TE Lawrence probably inspired the Baron. Interestingly, the actor who played the Turk was the same actor who played the Emperor, Jose Ferrar.

And I believe Kingfish misunderstands 12:40 PM. This Dune is being twisted into a SJW/CRT allegory of modern politics. And the characters are being reimagined not because it improves the story. It is being done to appease some sort of heavy-handed requirement for inclusiveness that was not part of the novel.

Kingfish said...

And you know this how? You've seen the movie or read the script?

5:33 Sorry to inform you, but that's the way they make movies. Always have. Actors who are hot are cast even if they don't conform with the original work, contemporary themes and values are blended into the screenplay wherever possible. Hollywood uses the original material only as much as it suits them, and appeases the fans of the original work. Hopefully we will be appeased.

Jesus H Christ, just watch the damn movie and have a good time. Go to B&B and watch it in the MX4D theater. Get a movie and a ride.

But it bombed and was universally hated except by reddit/twitter SJWs who couldn't buy enough tickets to fake a success.

Kingfish said...

1:17: You are correct.

As for not liking a particular actor, considering he is playing the villain, you can feel good about hating him while you watch the movie. You're supposed to hate him. Now you have extra motivation to do so.

I am not going to give my hard earned money to the worst examples of humanity in all of human history.... Hollywood.

Go watch your Hollywood action movie adaptation. But know this... Melange is a powerful drug. And Paul Mua'dib becomes a Melange junkie. So addicted in fact, that his children are insane and incestual. And eventually Mua'dib, blind and obese from the lethargy of dreamwalking, is transformed into Shai Hulud. Similar to the Spacing Guild Navigators.

I only hope it's better than that 1980's flick.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
