Dune Vs. Dune!

" Which Ear ? "

It's Dune vs. Dune! Some have reappraised Lynch's attempt as a flawed classic, and now Villeneuve has delivered a star-studded new vision... but does either version hold water with MG? Or are the critics right?

Is it actually unfilmable?

In 1984 David Lynch's disastrous adaptation of Dune seemed to prove the critics right - that this novel, even after decades of development in the hands of artists like Alejandro Jodorowski, Moebius, Ridley Scott and H.R. Giger had proved itself totally unfilmable.

But Hollywood has never met a remake it could resist, so now they've laid a 165 million bet down on a new version by Blade Runner 2049's Denis Villeneuve! So was Jason Mamoa worth the money? Is Lynch's film really the secret classic some say it is?

Join MG as we do the worm with Dune vs Dune!
