  • it is perhaps better than you die in innards worm, Welcome toe watch mojo.

  • And today we're counting down our picks for the top 10 reasons why Doone 1984 is hated.

  • No one ever dream There were so many squeeze, as I promised.

  • I want you to squeeze and squeeze that stream, your salvage what we can.

  • But I can tell you dear, for this list we're looking at why many fans loathe the 1984 film adaptation of Frank Herbert's Dune.

  • Do you like the 1984 version of Dune?

  • Let us know in the comments below Number 10 the lack of fidelity to the source material.

  • David Lynch is arguably one of the most creative and unique filmmakers toe ever pick up a camera.

  • His body of work speaks for itself but a massive fan of Dune, he was not his lack of interest in the source material and arguably blockbuster sci fi in general shows through in the adaptation E.

  • I understand.

  • For starters, he aged the main character Polytrack eighties, making our protagonists journey a fundamentally different one for him not being a teenager.

  • I know through for I'm sitting with my back to the door.

  • Yeah, I heard you, Dr.

  • Yui and Gurney coming down the hall.

  • Other characters are introduced Onley toe have their storylines unceremoniously abandoned.

  • Certain creative choices, which will be discussed in greater detail later in the video, actually go against the fundamental message of Herbert's novel.

  • Don't try your powers on me.

  • Try looking into that place where you dare not look.

  • You'll find me there staring back at you.

  • Number nine.

  • It tries to condense way too much material done.

  • Evil Knives updated adaptation of Dune will only cover the first half of the novel The Future.

  • While this might seem like a marketing ploy to set up the sequel, it is for the best dune like The Lord of the Rings simply can't be condensed into a single film, at least not in a satisfying way.

  • You shall not pass.

  • We learned this the hard way, watching the 1984 attempt.

  • The universe of Dune is so complex and nuanced that the film has no choice but to give these massive exposition dumps there off putting and actually make the whole thing somehow feel less accessible in an attempt to meet a reasonable runtime.

  • Huge chunks of this sprawling narrative were left on the cutting room floor.

  • The resulting story feels disjointed and half baked that I'm sloppy really damn sloppy.

  • Number eight.

  • The Internal Monologues.

  • Spice Pure Unrefined spice.

  • Despite the source material's density, Universal Pictures demanded a film with a standard running time.

  • Producers Rafaela de Laurentis and her father, Dino de Laurentis, stepped in to deliver in order to cut the film Down.

  • Seems were trimmed or excised, and the blanks were filled in with voiceovers.

  • Father, I promise.

  • One day the sleeper will awaken on, and I will avenge your death.

  • E will not stop until I destroy the Emperor and the Baron.

  • There is a time and a place to use narration as a window into the mind of a character.

  • This is a crash course in how not to do it.

  • Characters serve as mouthpieces for exposition dumps, but more often than not, the results are entirely unhelpful.

  • House the trade.

  • He's took control of Arrakis, 63 standard days into the year 1 10,091.

  • It was known that the Hakone Inns, the former rulers of Iraqis, would leave many suicide troops behind these internal monologues air delivered in a creepy whisper that's jarring and distracts from the scene.

  • Jessica had successfully transmuted the poisonous water of life.

  • Every man who has tried has died, most damning.

  • It could be unclear whose thoughts were hearing number seven.

  • It lacks action.

  • If this was intended as producer Dino de Laurentis answer to Star Wars, he really missed the mark.

  • Our beloved galaxy, Far far away boasts incredible world building and unique characters, but it's also thrilling.

  • The Star Wars films succeed largely by making the audience feel like they're part of a grand adventure.

  • Remember, Across will be with 1984 version of Dune, by contrast, feels like an advanced poly psy course for an alien civilization taught by someone in their second or third language.

  • It is by the juice of SAT food that thoughts acquire speed that lifts acquire, stained sustains become a warning.

  • It is by will alone.

  • I set my mind in motion for a film that tries to cram in way too much.

  • There's remarkably little in the way of action when something exciting does happen.

  • The scene is usually short, poorly choreographed and lacking in relatable stakes.

  • It's What have killed me?

  • Number six.

  • The many, many cheesy moments If you're planning on revisiting this film any time soon, skip the popcorn and break open a bag of nachos instead.

  • Because this film has got cheese to spare, I would not have permitted you to harm my tribe from my dreams.

  • So beautiful when working within the sci fi genre, there's a fine line between self seriousness and parody.

  • I want you to squeeze and squeeze and squeeze.

  • Give me.

  • Sadly, more often than not, the combination of overacting and absurdly pretentious dialogue tips the scales in favor of the ladder.

  • When reading Dune.

  • There's a real gravitas to the characters and events.

  • The film reduces most of the books most powerful players to their eccentricities.

  • Get out of my mind until you tell them Booth the flamboyant costuming, questionable wording throughout and what we can only assume was a mandate to crank the intensity to 11 at every opportunity.

  • And you get a film that feels like an SNL sketch.

  • I see it e can see it.

  • You say that one.

  • Number five.

  • The hair, makeup and costumes.

  • There are some people out there who consider the aforementioned design choices to be the Onley thing that David Lynch got right with this adaptation.

  • There's no denying that the filmmaker tried to create a richly themed and immersive world with unique visuals.

  • But for all the bold decisions that were made, the end result is still underwhelming.

  • My Duke, I Failed You this thoroughly mid eighties idea of how a futuristic society would look, felt almost immediately dated.

  • For every character design that was appropriately weird, there were two others that felt cartoonishly over the top and deeply un cool.

  • Staying in that codpiece is seared into our eyes forever.

  • Then there were group outfits that seemed like complete afterthoughts.

  • The Har Conan and a trades uniforms feel like leftover costumes from other films.

  • I remember the first step in avoiding a trap, eyes knowing of its existence.

  • I know Number four Weirding became guns.

  • We get that Weirding is somewhat vaguely defined in the book's, but surely there were more elegant ways to portrayed on screen size control.

  • Heck, we would have settled for anything that didn't directly contradict Herberts World.

  • One of the more interesting pieces of world building in Dune is that personal shields have rendered projectile weapons largely obsolete as such hand to hand combat and blade weapons are the norm.

  • Theo Weirding Way is an advanced style of movement that allows for incredibly effective combat.

  • But Lynch reportedly said that he didn't want to see quote kung fu on sand dunes.

  • So in the film it becomes a gun.

  • A that's right.

  • Instead of something resembling martial arts, we got the Weirding module, which can only be described as a poorly designed laser gun.

  • This is part of the Weirding way that we will teach you.

  • Number three The Rain As refreshing as it might have looked on paper in practice, the climactic rainfall on Arrakis stung badly.

  • At the heart of the original novel is the idea that Pollitt raids is being made into a God by those who see him as the Messiah.

  • More deep had become the hand of God fulfilling the Fremen prophecy.

  • Where there was war, Moi Deep would now bring peace.

  • While he does possess powers of pre cognition, his status as a deity isn't supported by actual miracles, but rather through the fervent belief of others.

  • This worries him immensely as he's afraid of unleashing a bloody holy war.

  • Having him make it.

  • Rain really misses the point.

  • And how can this be?

  • Hey, is the quiz that's it's also not clear how he does it.

  • Just powers, we guess.

  • Doesn't this make the secret from and water stores redundant?

  • Plus, all that moisture would destroy the sand worms and spice, bringing down galactic civilization Number two.

  • It lacks a clear message building on our previous entry.

  • It's important to understand what Frank Herbert's dune means to people.

  • Yes, it's a decadently dense universe with a rich mythology, but it's equally elaborate in its use of allegory.

  • Practice.

  • Dune Desert Planet Yeah, Moving, Moving 1984 Film adaptation is a bold and ambitious attempt to recreate the world of dune on the big screen, but it takes the style and leaves behind the substance.

  • Because the film makes Paul into a superpowered messiah, the story is reduced to another run of the mill tale about a chosen one.

  • The sleeper has awakened.

  • It doesn't really offer commentary on what that narrative means.

  • We Fremen have a saying.

  • God created Iraq is to train the faithful.

  • One cannot go against the word of God by making Paul a literal God.

  • The 1984 film adaptation robs dune of its greatest insight and offers nothing to say in its place.

  • Before we unveil our topic, Here are some honorable mentions David Lynch wasn't given creative freedom.

  • The director famously disowned the film because of studio intervention.

  • But when you don't have final cut, total creative freedom, you stand to die the death, dying the death and died.

  • I did the treatment of female characters rather than being powerful and feared, as in the books they seem toe live to serve, men hurry.

  • All I see is darkness.

  • Oh, I will love you forever.

  • Duncan.

  • Idaho's inglorious end beloved characters should get more screen time and a worthy death.

  • Why haven't we heard from you, My Lord?

  • E Suspect So much key characters look silly and are underdeveloped, pompous speeches from emotionally detached characters with unclear motivations.

  • I'm alive.

  • You have the option to be notified for occasional videos or all of them.

  • If you're on your phone, make sure you go into your settings and switch on notifications.

  • Number one Massive plot holes.

  • When you're aiming for world building on a scale this large and fail your plot holes exist on a comparable scale.

  • Even with a runtime of 136 minutes, or 186 for the TV version, the film has to skip over key details, backstory and explanations.

  • Thanks to your teachings, it's changing my consciousness, and these aren't just missing subplots.

  • That'll frustrate fans of the book.

  • We're talking about glaring plot holes that break the reality of the film where, pray tell, does polit trades get all those Weirding modules with which he arms the Fremen Way?

  • Weren't they destroyed in the earlier attack?

  • Way Destroyed?

  • Thistle is arguably the biggest and most glaring plot hole in the film, but it's not the only one, and the narration is often just a crude Band Aid trying to cover them up.

  • Do you agree with our picks?
