Check out the drawings, the paintings, and the cosplay pics! Enjoy!
I'm only talking about the Frank Herbert ones because I haven't read the Brian Herbert/Kevin Anderson ones (but I've read reviews that are not favorable to those anyway).
Dune, the first novel, has so much that in my opinion is translatable to film. Action, adventure, prophecy, exciting locales and situations, family drama, villains, monsters. Great stuff.
But the rest of the books... kinda boring. They're great sci-fi books, but I just finished re-reading Dune: Messiah and it was all conversations. No action actually happens. And a lot of it was thoughts in the characters minds. The one visually exciting moment when the Stone Burner is detonated doesn't even rate as an action scene.
I wouldn't want to see the great excitement and adventure of Dune only to then see the boring talking heads movie of Dune: Messiah. If I remember correctly Children of Dune and God Emperor of Dune were also a series of conversations by the main characters.
in the first Dune the action and adventure is front and center, in the rest of the series it's not. There's no studio that's going to invest the kind of money that it would take to make these without them being an exciting crowd pleasing series. Even the SciFi sequel to Dune (Children of Dune combining Messiah and Children) was boring in comparison to the first.

What do you guys think?
