    It was a good story turned into a bad movie back in the 80s. I did like Sting's platinum blonde spikey hairdo tho...had one myself for the first year of college until my fraternity brothers told me that sorority girls liked preppy better. Who knew?

    Billy Idol had a much better hair style... and he's much cooler

    I know a lot of DUNE fans might disagree but I loved the SCIFI miniseries that they did for DUNE .... I thought it rocked.... so much so I have it on DVD

    I never had the guts to watch the miniseries after being so disappointed with the movie. Guess I'll have to check it out.

    Billy Idol > Sting for the win!

    I liked the Sci-Fi Channel version too, except for William Hurt as Duke Leto was a bad choice, his acting was fine, but he just didn't look the part to me.

    You can get Blender at http://www.blender.org/. I've tried using it, but it seems to be about the same as all 3D modeling programs in ease of use, which for me is not easy at all. I find difficulty in grasping concepts in 3D modeling.

    Bryguy, the story line is pretty involved. I would suggest you rent/borrow/beg/steal either version and give it a view.

    I'll give it a go ...

    The year is 10,191 of the Imperial Throne. The Emperor Shaddam IV rules over the galaxy, granting fiefdoms to the Great Houses of the Landsraad. During this year, the planet fief of Arrakis is transferred from the control of House Harkonnen to House Atreides - bitter enemies. Arrakis, also known as Dune, is the home of the Spice. The Spice extends life and is vital for space travel, used by Spacing Guild navigators to navigate the space between stars. The planet is a desert, home to the Giant Worms and the ragged Fremen.

    The story is one of intrigue, betrayal and the wars of the Houses.
