Dune:
A place beyond your dreams...

There are several versions of original Dune motion picture. The version that you can purchase on DVD is 2 hours and 17 minutes long. There is also a version that is televised on the Sci-Fi channel that has a different narrator and reels of extra scenes that were cut by the director. If you ask me, this version is much better for the first time viewer or for someone who has never read any the Dune Chronicles. For those of you who haven't read the books, go do it. Stop what you are doing right now, run out to the book store and start reading. You won't be disappointed. I would also recommend buying the original Dune computer game, it is a true classic. Oh yes, I forgot to tell you... there is supposedly an even longer version that you can purchase on laserdisc, unfortunately it is in Japanese with English subtitles. I have never actually seen this version so I don't know if it exists, if you ever run across one email me and tell me what it's like.

 
Listen Lines from the  original movie...
The beginning is a very delicate time. Know then that it is the year 10191. The known universe is ruled by the Padisha Emperor Shadam the 4th, my father. In this time the most precious substance in the universe is the spice melange. The spice extends life. The spice expands conciseness. The spice is vital to space travel. The Spacing Guild and its Navigators, who the spice has mutated over 4000 years, use the orange spice gas, which gives them the ability to fold space; that is, to travel to any part of the universe with out moving. Oh yes, I forgot to tell you the spice exists on only one planet in the entire universe , a dry desolate planet with vast deserts. Hidden away with in the needs of these deserts are the people known as the fremen; who have long held the prophecy that a man would come, a Messiah, who would lead them to true freedom, the planet is Arrakis, also known as Dune.
A secret report within the Guild. Four Planets have come to our attention regarding a plot which could jeopardize spice production: planet Arrakis, source of the spice, planet Kaladan, home of house Attredies, planet Geidi Prime, home of House Harkonnen, planet Kiatane, home of the emperor of the known universe. Send a third stage Guild Navigator to Kiatane to demand details from the emperor. The spice must flow.
Come watch the mystery of mysteries, the end and the beginning.
Did you think you could bare the Kwisatz Haderach, the Universe's Super-being? How dare you, my greatest student, and my greatest disappointment.
The pain! No, enough.
The Litany against fear.
Many man have tried. They tried and failed? They tried and died.
I did not say this, I am not here.
Shield practice... Not in the mood? Mood is thing for cattle or love play.
It is by will alone that I set my mind in motion, it is by the juices of...
A million deaths are not enough for Yueh.
You are transparent, I see many things, I see plans with in plans.
Tell me of your home world Usul.
He who can destroy a thing, controls a thing.
We have entered the time when all will turn against us and seek our lives.
Long live the fighters.
Usul has called a big one, again it is the legend.
NA Who is this Muad'Dib?
The sleeper must awaken.
Father, the sleeper has awakened.
NA I place you in control of Arrakis, I want you to squeeze...
A must listen! Not in the version released on VHS or DVD.
The Spice must flow.
Am I alive? I'm alive. Yes, you're alive my Baron...
Stilgar do we have worm sign? Usul, we have worm sign the likes of which even God has never seen.
We ourselves foresee a small problem with...
I am Usul, Paul Muad'Dib...
All I can see is an Attredis animal that I want to kill.
I will kill him!
Atomics!
Bring in that floating fat man-the Baron.
Many men have tried. Tried and failed. Tried and died.
And how can this be? For he is the Kwisatz Haderach!
Don't try your powers on me! Try looking into that place where you dare not look, you'll find me there staring back at you. You mustn't speak. Silence!
Muad'Dib had become the Hand of God, fulfilling the Fremen prophecy. Where there was war, Muad'Dib would now bring peace. Where there was hatred, Muad'Dib would bring love. To lead the people to true freedom, and to change the face of Arrakis.
NA We Fremen have a saying, "God created Arrakis to train the faithful." One cannot go against the word of God.
Arrakis, Dune, Desert planet. Your time has come. A storm is coming, our storm, and when it arrives it will shake the universe. Emperor, we come for you!
We have just folded space from Ix. Yes, how was your journey? Many machines on Ix, new machines.

"I will not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, Litany Against Fear
