    lol. I cant believe Ive found two people willing to double down on Sting in the same day.

    Dune has given us this spectacle at least.

    And let's not forget Francesca Annis as Lady Jessica:

    I like how you can instantly tell the Harkonnens are evil because they're all ginger.

    I've had the Dune argument too many times and Im so tired. Currently arguing the other side again on whatsapp. I think I might just pit you against each other.

    I agree with Droid, even though I've never seen the film. The combination of David Lynch, Sting and sci-fi is a repulsive proposition on its face. Who needs to watch that, ffs?
