I just saw this too - great price. It's meant to be a very good transfer. Pity though that it doesn't have as many extras as the US edition.

Weirdly it doesn't have subtitles either, which I thought was standard nowadays.

You'll be waiting even *longer* for it to arrive (usually dispatched within a week) (_;)

Have you tried wanting to watch a film for 3 months in the glory of high definition?

Thats a *LONG* time to wait! :D

Good price, shame about the film. Really wish someone would try and do a decent version of the story, as I love the books to bits, just a shame every attempt to film them has been utterly flawed.

But again, cracking price, if you want it.

They have Blue Velvet at the same price too. Now...do I buy both films yet again??

It's a great film but the UK edition transfer isn't that great. It's *really* dark in places compared to the US HD-DVD I used to have, apparently the US release is better.

One day, maybe they'll do a proper restoration job on it :)

i'd get the us region free version of blue velvet rather than the uk one- it has the deleted scenes.

Ive compared the US and UK Dune's and I would go with the US one if I was you. Its pretty cheap through Amazon.uk too. Picture is definitely better on the old US one and the sound quality is double too!

Blue Velvet - dont get the UK one, again get the US if you can or better still get the really nice French digibook.

They really bolloxed up most of the new Lynch UK releases in one way or another except for Eraserhead which is fine.

This version sucks.

The scifi channel mini-series is closer to the book but still not that good.

Just read the book (Or Audiobook if you cannot read).

(I was expecting a remake in 2013 but it seems like it has been axed (Like most of the films I want to watch seem to be)).

If you are using someone else's story I would rather have a literal interpretation. (Watchmen - Game of Thrones (1st season) gets it right.)

I think the tone and the darkness of this film sits very well with Dune universe, but as usual film producers just do what they want with master piece books and trash it once its made it to film.

The Sci-Fi series followed the book series more closely and you even get a bit more with the Children of Dune release. But the tone and weight of these are just to light and jovial to give enough depth to the Dune universe that Frank Herbert set out.
I dont even mind his sons prequels to these books as it adds weight to the serious aspects of the original books.
