@silverfox I gave up on book 2? Book 3? I don't even know anymore. But I also couldn't get past page 80 of the Game of Thrones books. These stories have SO much detail, political intrigue, world and theme building, that I think of them more like History channel shows. Great premises for a MU, or for a tv show/movie but on their own can get dull really fast. So, I'm with you.

@reimesu The whole soundtrack is just chef kiss in a way I personally do not expect from Zimmer... that one motif is just brought up for great wake up alarm potential. About as strong a WAKE UP energy as the Lion King intro.
... though not without critique, which I should throw into the movie thread, I guess.
@jennkryst What right does a deliberately jingoistic tune played on a bagpipe have to thrill me as much as it did?
I enjoy not having to worry about reading spoilers about Dune without having seen the movie yet, not gonna lie. :)
@arkandel Sorry, just checking. Are you tagging me in your reply because I'm the last person to comment, or is there a connection between our comments I'm not picking up on?

@aria That would be better. In fact at least 2 seasons per book. With at least three panels of info, one for inner voice as subtitle, one for information, a large one for main sequences/ action.
Now I'm just confused.
It probably only makes sense in my head. Any my trying to explain is probably going to make it more confusing.
It needs to run like a modern major news network.
On you TV device, it shows the main sequence and has a feed or pop up. It either feeds information or you can select the popup for more info - like mentat feeds during mentat computational sequences, or explanation of things that aren't on the screen. Such as Butlerian Jihad References, explanations on how Bene Gesseret operate, informational things. Like old Pop-up Videos on VH1.
It needs another panel for inner dialoque and other references.
It made sense when I pondered this longer sequence series in the 90s and i figured most people are multi-media competent enough these days to get it a little more. Like right now, I'm typing in a window over the main thread of info while watching a series on netflix. I figure these days a smart device (iPad/Surface/Whatever) can link with the video medium (flat screen, lcd monitor playing the movie) so that folks could get info on one while watching on the other, but like appendices in a books, there needs to be another reference so that doesn't take away from main sequence action.
Just some place the viewer could find out Maud Dib is a desert mouse, one of the figures on the moons over Arrakis, and other info on what Maud Dib means without one character needing to explain it to the other in the main sequence.
ETA: And even with another panel or two of info, each book needs to be at least two good seasons on some streaming platform. By good season I mean 20-30 episodes not 10 episodes. Even with two+ panels (main sequence and information or internal dialogues and such) it needs enough 4D space or things are just lost.
