I read the book and saw the movie when it came out. In the day it was a cult classic. This version was immensely entertaining to watch and was a noticeable improvement over the theatrical release specifically because if you had not read the books, the theatre version would not make any sense as far as continuity or even plot for that matter. Well done, and btw the noticeable cut scenes were unavoidable and not in the least detracting from this, a true work of art.

Easily the best cut of this awesome movie. I’d recommend this to any fan of the original movie and especially fans of the books. This is a must see. 5 stars.

Thoroughly impressed with this version, the story felt weightier, there’s a certain joy in seeing extra moments you didn’t see in the original release although some moments reveal very poor hammy acting that hints at why Lynch is ashamed of the movie, it seems he did not yet have the craft to elicit a top drawer performance from some of his top draw leads. Jose Ferrer, Linda Hunt, Freddie Jones and the great Patrick Stewart (one of my favourite actors) seem at times to be performing on ‘stage’ rather than celluloid. I missed the Irulan opening scene, when I saw this as a 16 year-old she was so beautiful the scene really stuck in my mind but I understand why this was cut for the male narration. I didn’t like Paul marrying Irulan but saying to Chani he would be mean and nasty to her; that didn’t seem right after telling everyone he’s the universes super-being but overall it’s the best fanedit I have seen and enhances one of my all-time favourite movies tremendously.
