rabbitofcaerbannogAlso, I'd like to see Blomkamp take a shot at "Dune". The David Lynch version was a train wreak. But then again, I'm not a Lynch hater ("Blue Velvet" and "Twin Peaks" I'm a big fan of).


a Blomkamp take on Dune would be awesome, but it's up to the Frank Herbert estate for that to happen.

which is why I suggest that it be a miniseries.


rabbitofcaerbannogHe also has a left leaning political view that can be off putting for the FOX News crowd. But he is an ambitious director for the types of budgets he uses.


that is indeed true, since he grew up in Apartheid-era South Africa (which was pretty much heavily right-wing) and crime was at an all-time high (which is the reason why he and his family left for Vancouver), even after Apartheid ended (the rather high crime rate still continues to this day, and is a contributing factor for why people are leaving South Africa for other places), and a bunch of other issues, including the mass illegal immigrants from Zimbabwe after that country collapsed and the South African locals clashing with them.
The same can be said for Lynn Okamoto (in terms of personal experiences influencing his stories), since apparently, even though he grew up in the Wakayama prefecture, he was actually born in the Soviet Union (Vladivostok to be exact) to a mother who was a Holocaust survivor when she was 7 (born in 1937-1938), and a Japanese father who was captured by the Soviets in WWII when he was in the Imperial Japanese Army at the age of 21 (born in 1923-1924) and remained in the gulags until destalinization in the 1950s. Due to the increasing antisemitism (Lynn's mother was Jewish) and discrimination against non-whites (Lynn was half-Japanese) in the USSR, Lynn and his family moved to Osaka in 1980 and ultimately settled in Wakayama in 1981. Lynn was raised on Yiddish stories from his mother including ones that weren't very flattering, as well stories of his mom and her family in the Holocaust concentration camps, which would ultimately influence him in creating Elfen Lied (there's a bunch of allusions to the Holocaust, including the horrible experiments performed on the Diclonii; the Kakuzawas essentially being Nazis, right down to that Lebensborn project; the apparent mass genocide of the Diclonii; the Diclonii having horns referring to the fact that in those Nazi eugenics propaganda, horns were considered a "Jewish racial feature").

There already was a good (at least, not ruined and/or whispery) version of Dune, and if I said it was from the Sci-Fi Channel, you wouldn't believe me.
(But then, that was back when it was the correctly-spelled Sci-Fi Channel.)

Yes, the miniseries was pretty good. But I'd love to see a truly epic looking "Dune" movie that takes advantage of the best special effects (WETA, are you reading this?) as well as doing justice to Frank Herbert's storytelling. The Lynch movie did have some beautiful visual and the awesome looking sandworms), but it was full of bad acting (Sting screaming "I will kill him" was probably one of the reasons The Police broke up) was laughably bad, not to mention the over the top Baron Harkonnen. Also the movie rushed through a lot of the book, feeling like it was an adaptation of "Dune Cliff Notes".
