In the right hands, it would have made a hell of an animated movie

Fred Wolfe, who made "The Point" might have had fun with it.

Imagine if Kubrick had gotten hold of it, or Cameron.

B**S***. The first book was great. But the following books were better. Frank elaborated on the theme and made it WAY more philosophical and analogous to contemporary society.

His son didn't capture the sublime aspects that Frank captured. But they were descent books too.

WRONG. I completely disagree with these guys. DUNE was the beginning, but it got WAY better after Dune. Their narrow minds couldn't get past the first book. (trash talk adds spice).

my cousin was the stunt double for the girl in the latest flicka movie, he did a great job which lead to another flick in which he played a dead body but i think they canned him for breathing.

Me and my "Arrow" (the only keeshond or any other breed that was ever allowed in the RCA Victor studios in Hollywood) worked on that project for over a year, I was Harry's personal engineer and lived the 24-7 life of creating what I knew would be a masterpiece, if we could take the pace. We'd finished the audio and the animators had the rough cuts ready for final editing; something told me it was time to leave L.A. Months later, with my sanity back in order, me and "Arrow" were cruising through a small town in New Hampshire and I noticed a hand-written sign at the community hall that said, "The Point"' tonight'. Me and the dog snuck in, sat in the back with all the kids and watched the film for the first time in it's entirety, on a folding chair with "Arrow" underneath. It brought tears to my eyes and no one in the little hall had a clue why me and my long-nosed dog were crying our joyful eyes out.
