The Dream Machine --- The Imagination of the World Wide Web

Despite some obvious flaws, the film remains true to Herbert's book, has some great acting (especially Kenneth McMillan as the floating villain, Baron Harkonen), imaginative visuals and an impressive score by rock group Toto. Yes, it's overlong. Yes, it does get confusing from time to time. And yes, the cinematography is truly drab and ugly brown. But the story, characters, creatures and visions of Herbert's imagination still come out on top. Seemingly being one of a small handful of people who like the movie, I think it has to be seen more than once to be appreciated more fully.
