Dune The Reconstructed Workprint Edition
I attempted to correct the missing Fremen eye colorations, but quickly realized I was in over my head, so only two shots have been fixed (those alone took a couple of hours rotoscoping by hand). Good luck spotting them! If anybody wishes to improve this fan edit by fixing all of these eye shots, please do.
I left David Lynch’s name in the credits, hoping this would not seem arrogant, but instead a genuine tribute by a fan, in hopes that this more closely matches the Extended Edition he would have created, if he’d only been given the chance back when he cared about the film. Mr. Lynch, if you’re reading, we do love your film, and will continue to wish for your true extended cut to see the light of day.

I am an extended edition buff and have a big collection of original ones and all the fanedits from here.
Many extended editions do not add anything to the movie, just add more useless scenes. I will rate the ones here.
