Vlog Ep. 18: Dune Movie Adaptations

For the 18th episode of the #BaduyPride live stream vlog, Tobie and I ended up talking about the various efforts to adapt Dune from book to movie or TV series. With the trailer for the new movie set to come out on 9 September, it felt like as good a time as any to talk about all that has been done before.

As much as I love Dune as a novel series, I've had a mixed experience with the different multimedia efforts to re-tell this story in a more visual manner. There may be some point in how dune is often called "unfilmable" because of the scope of the story and the many different characters involved in the telling, but who knows, maybe this 2020 movie effort will be the one that cracks the formula get makes things right. Or maybe it will fall into the same traps of the previous releases.

While we chose today's topic, we're always open to suggestions! If you have ideas for future video discussions, feel free to fill out this Google Form and your idea may be featured as the focus for an episode!
