I'm finally moving the liveblog here so I can finish the damn thing, but to do that, I must copy and repost everything first. Have patience...
I can call it that because I am AFGNCAAP's clone. Do not let the feline appearnce fool you; it was just for the hell of it.
From the Liveblog List thread:
I'm bored, and this forum needs more unwarranted Tezuka references, PSL and shouting about costume design. So, I am soon finishing what I started by liveblogging the sci fi channel's Children of Dune. Obtaining of the movie is pending; time for me to start speed reading so I know what's going on when the liveblog starts (soon).
Keep an eye out for the thread!
See, when I threaten you, I bloody mean it.
From the applicable article:
The Sci-Fi Channel also adapted Messiah and Children into a second three-part miniseries in 2003, which was substantially better in some people's opinion (though its ending was much more ambiguous than that of the novel and doesn't provide a suitable lead-in to God Emperor.)
Supposedly, the Budget Gods were a lot nicer to the filmmakers this time, and the effects, props, costumes (please oh please oh please...), etc, were more timely. That doesn't change the things
like about the Dune
that came after
t. Personally, though, I
'm enjoying the exponentially rising WTF-ness level—makes for nice liveblogging material, in any case.
Oh, and there are a few different actors. Let's see if any left who I liked.
BEYOND THIS POINT DWELL SPOILERS. DO NOT ENTER UNLESS YOU HAVE TRAINED PAST LEVEL 11 OR ARE A MEMBER OF THEIR FACTION (you dirty defector).
Update pending for tonight.
