I agree with that completely.
Dune had vision that most other sci-fi films of it's time lacked. I'll give you that a bit of the dialouge is slated, the plot a bit excentric to say the least, but I think it's a film of exceptional vison for it's day and age, in standing out against being cast as a pop-culture knockoff of star wars.
If anything, Star Wars
is a knock-off of Dune
, not the other way around. Remember, Dune
was originally a novel, and the book was around long before Star Wars
Most under-rated actor/actress - Brad Dourif
I;ve only ever seen him in two roles: One flew over the Coocoo's nest and The X-Files episode "Beyond the Sea." In both of these roles, I couldn't help but be amazed at his ability to become a character, no matter how bizzare they may be.
Have you seen this thread?
