    Walker and Goldenthal did pretty well in writing a great theme after Elfman's

    That's when Batman's music stopped being interesting. This is just another step in that tendency

    I like the orchestra in the American version of the Hunchback musical, but the singing is by far superior in the German version. And German really lends itself to this sort of music, doesn't it?

    There is, it would just be cool to have the whole thing in one package (plus, getting the Botnick treatment)

    Romão got a reaction from Yavar Moradi in 2021: Most wanted Deluxe Edition treatment for a Jerry Goldsmith score by Varese Sarabande?   
    I know, but I would really like to have a physical edition of the score. Even it was just a straight reissue of the previous release

    Knowing the book and the story as I do, it really isn't easy to squeeze a big action sequence in before the one hour mark. Besides, at least in my experience, action sequences have been the most boring parts of recent hollywood blockbuster filmmaking

    That's not 100% true, though. Movies like Gone With the Wind, Wizard of Oz, Sound of Music, Doctor Zhivago, Exorcist, the Graduate what have you, were massive, all time hits without needing to be action filled movies. So big hits didn't necessarily need to be action filled. Nowadays, maybe they do. But action has been getting more boring and excessive in a great deal of big budget Hollywood blockbusters lately, to a point of causing numbness and indifference. I think the last action sequence that did anything for me was the bathroom fight in Mission Impossible: Fallout, and that was just two guys fighting each other
     
    Great action sequences is not what I would consider to be crucial point in a Dune adaptation, although I do agree with your view that it might make a surer box office bet.

    I agree with everything you said, but I really doubt Dune will be lacking in spectacle or massive scale. It might not be a particularly "warm" movie (Dune is really not a particularly warm novel nor is Villeneuve a sentimental director), but I'm pretty sure it will feel massive and grandiose

    Truth be told, Lynch's Dune was cryptic and yet enticing enough to peek behind the curtain and made me absolutely want to read the book. That desire might've not been as strong had the movie been a stronger adaptation of the novel. So I kinda get what Lean was saying, although I can really wholeheartedly agree.
     
    The world the Lynch's Dune movie promised (more than it delivered) was just too fascinating

    I've read the word Jihad is also used in the film. The book did use both "crusade" and "jihad", although the latter was more frequent

    As a fan of many books, and as someone who usually prefers to read the book first, I'm fond of films that are made (also) for fans of the books. If a film manages to satisfy those who already know the book, that's certainly a sign that it's more than an advertisement for it.

    Before this project was announced, I had three dream choices for directing Dune: Peter Weir, Ang Lee and Denis Villeneuve. So I was ecstatic when he was announced. His whole filmography seems to be building up to this
     
    But I can also imagine how exciting it must've been in the 80's to learn that Lynch would be be directing Dune
