The wise man can pick up a grain of sand and envision a whole universe. But the stupid man will just lay down on some seaweed and roll around in it until he's completely draped in it. Then he'll stand up and go hey, I'm Vine Man.

Synopsis: Paul Atreides arrives at planet Arrakis with his father to take over spice production. He is immediately caught up in a sordid tale of intrigue and betrayal, eventually emerging as the Fremmen messiah.

Reaction: Not for everyone. It can be hard to follow if you haven't read the book. But even so, there are aspects that simply don't work for me. It's a classic, but not a great one.

Personal Rating: 4/10
