This week’s review: Dune
In this week’s episode Sean and Matt talk about the 1984 classic, Dune. A film adaptation of the Frank Herbert novel had been in the works since 1971. The first attempt was made by Alejandro Jodorowsky, and the second attempt was with Ridley Scott. Was the third time the charm? David Lynch tried his best to bring the epic novel to life, but there were so many things standing in his way.
