The special effects and fight choreography in that movie seem rather dated by today's standards.

Frank Herbert himself was involved in producing the David Lynch version.

Evidences.

It's not a bad effort considering the tech available at the time.

Teg's batman, Burzmali deserves a mention, too.

The slaughter of the Matres and the space battles can now be done justice with CGI

Also the God Emperor shit can be done now

Because it is sort of just background, the space battles are overlooked

Also the planet destruction of Dune

robinson, have you read the Pandora trilogy which Herbert wrote in collaboration with Bill Ransom? They're sequels to Herbert's Destination Void, which isn't an easy read. Enormously enjoyable. :)

Same here. More of a fantasy writer than the "hard SciFi" writers I really like but he gets a pass because he was so clever. :)

I consider his novel The White Plague

one of the best

Is it science fiction? Not really


Same for the Santaroga barrier

I call him a PsiFi writer. Nearly all his novels require supernatural abilities for the plots to work.

The White Plague is an exception, as is Hellstrom's Hive.
