* FreudWasRight: Lynch isn't shy about sexual connotations. Look at his interpretation of the Navigators - their mouths are... ''vaginal''.

* BrokenBase: While most fans agree about the [[{{Sequelitis}} quality]] of the non-Frank Herbert novels (even if some still accept them), there is significant friction between fans of the DavidLynch [[Film/{{Dune}} movie]] and [[Creator/{{Syfy}} Sci-Fi Channel]] [[Series/{{Dune}} miniseries]] adaptations. Hell, evidence of it is available on these very pages! The casting, acting, and costumes have been criticized by [[BrokenBase both sides]]. Criticisms of each side:

* MisaimedMarketing: [[http://www.flickr.com/photos/babbletrish/3006284899/ Coloring and puzzle books]] for the DavidLynch film ''Film/{{Dune}}'', which features graphic violence and murders, lots of folks in latex and tubes up their noses, a pus-faced psychopath who kills his male sex slaves by uncorking their hearts, and of course a gigantic fish mutant (Guild Navigator) with a [[{{Squick}} vagina-like mouth]]. The coloring book made sure to provide lines on Baron Harkonnen's face so children can choose different colors for his facial pustules.

* UnfortunateImplications: Film scholar Robin Wood called Dune "the most obscenely homophobic film I have ever seen", –referring to a scene in which Baron Harkonnen sexually assaults and kills a young man by bleeding him to death–charging it with "managing to associate with homosexuality in a single scene physical grossness, moral depravity, violence and disease." Gay writer Dennis Altman suggested that the film showed how "AIDS references began penetrating popular culture" in the 1980s, asking, "Was it just an accident that in the film Dune the homosexual villain had suppurating sores on his face?"

* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeonDrugs: The Lynch film. Some of the scenes included that weren't in the book serve no purpose beyond being weird.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: People who are only familiar with Dune's film or video game adaptations are very likely to suffer this when they start to read the novels, as, unlike the films and the video games, the novels have [[EightDeadlyWords very few, if any, genuinely likeable characters]].

* InkStainAdaptation: For the more sophisticated readers, the prequels and sequels by Kevin J. Anderson have kept them from the original series for fear it also caters to the LowestCommonDenominator. For fans of the new work... Well, they're in for a surprise if they try the originals.
