Children of Dune (spoilers)

I almost hate to admit it, but Children of Dune isn't half bad. Anybody else slightly impressed by it?

Re: Children of Dune

I think it's pretty good... the second episode was kinda boring but I still liked it.

Re: Children of Dune

Couldn't agree more. I was somewhat disappointed by the Dune mini-series, but I have very little to complain about with this one. It's been nearly 15 years since I read the Dune series, so I can't remember how faithful the adaptation actually is, but it is enjoyable to watch. My favorite scene so far comes at the end of night one when they have the "Godfather" style ending -- Alia takes out the guild representative, the reverend mother and all the heads of the five families.

Re: Children of Dune

I had problems with the first Dune miniseries as well.

I think the pacing, at least on night one, was far better.

Haven't seen night two yet, but I taped it. I'll tape tonight's episode as well and watch them this weekend.

So far I'm pleasantly surprised.

Re: Children of Dune

I saw bits of the first one and thought it was a little camped up and over acted.

I still intend on getting it at some point.

Re: Children of Dune

Speaking of acting... I can't say a lot about the actress playing Alia, except that she sounded damn good during that love scene with her priest.

Re: Children of Dune

Would anyone who saw all of the first miniseries say it was worth paying for on DVD?

I second that. I wasnt watching that part, my roomie was, I was in the other room and heard her "acting" and decided it beared investigation. Impressive.

Re: Children of Dune

Just finished watching CoD and am not too impressed. Had its good points but also its bad points. I'll give it 3 on a scale of 5.
