I just watched the directors cut of the Dune mini-series and have seen both the Smithee & Lynch versions of the movie. I have pros & cons about both. I do like some of the actor portrayals in the movie version better. I was wondering if any fans could answer my question though. In the movie they use the weirding device as a weapon and eventually Paul doesn't need the modulator. In the miniseries is is just mentioned, but never seen. Is this more accurate to the book or not? Also, I liked in the movie how after killing Fayd(sp?) Paul used it on him. But, it the miniseries it was not used. I was disappointed. The only other thing I can say. Is that in both versions Chayni(sp?) is pretty hot. Just curious to all of your opinions.
