    Is it worth watching. I just recorded it but the bad reviews are putting me off.

    Depends on what you want. It’s not a popcorn action adventure like Star Wars or Star Trek it’s more like a space opera

    Long and ponderous. But damn it if I don't watch it every time it's on.

    It's a classic, classically slow.

    If you've read the books, then it's not bad. If not, you might be lost. Has a good cast overall. Worth watching if you have time to kill...

    It was an ambitious production. You definitely should read at least the first Dune book before sitting through it.

    People kill Hollywood for making nothing but superhero movies and cartoons today but then also kill Hollywood for making films for adults in the 80s

    If you're a sci-fi nerd you will enjoy watching it, but overall it's not a very good movie.

    The storyline is very complex. I think David Lynch from Eraserhead directed (nuff said). The remake I hear is in the works. CGI of today will help. The old version is weird ponderous and laughable yet like others I always watch it.

    Yes, but only because it's a bat shit insane David Lynch movie.

    If you're looking for a great sci-fi epic, look elsewhere.
