Dunno why everyone is getting hyped about another star wars movie.... Star Wars is proper gay, and too over-rated, pretty much like star trek. They do not compare to Dune/Children of Dune.... They are the best sci-fi movies or mini series made, and the books are far more superior

Yeah, Messiah, thas the one. That's probably my favourite.

I fancy reading Chapterhouse just to see how weird it is.

I can't believe that you used the term 'proper gay' to describe something.
It really doesn't get any sadder than that.

i was wondering, who was that bird who plays Arlia in the Children of Dune Sci-Fi series..... she was pretty okay, I've read all of Franks Dune, i think it goes "Dune", "Messiah", "Children of Dune" if i'm not mistaken, but they are definative, and far superior to any of the others....

Joss Whedon's Firefly comes close, that was a bloody good series, and can't wait till Serienty the Movie comes out

Yeah, Dune was fantastic...was there another one after it, that came before Children Of Dune? I'm sure their was, and that was very good too.

I'm reading Children of Dune now...to be honest, I'm really rather confused.

Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed them (The Machine Crusade is the weakest I've read so far. I hope the final one is better) but if fans of Franks work are expecting more of the same, they'll se sorely disappointed. The Dune sequels are damn hard going. When Paul starts turning into the sandworm was when I thought "uh ohh". Chapterhouse I still don't have much of a clue with what was going on......

Yup. Fully agree.

Heh. Guess who loved 'em? Your right; they were rather slapdash. But still a hell of a lot more penetrable than the Dune sequels.

Oh, and having seen the SF channels Dune, I can safely say that it was the most passionless, soulless sci-fi I've ever seen. No accounting for taste I suppose...
