Do you know why the aardvark was brought up?



Um, no. To me that just seemed randomly hilarious. Did I stumble into a private joke?


The pug dogs were a compromise by David Lynch. Patrick Stewart refused to carry an aardvark into battle.

This doesn't change the fact that I peed myself.

I was hoping it would add to the experience. :|

Which could slurp it up quicker, an aardvark or an anteater? :think:

Oh. :shock:

There's some images that are going to stay with me for a while. :dance: :lol:

It wasn't a puddle, no need for slurping.... but probably an anteater. They seem to be a bit more manic.

Was it just a diffence in pop culture between generations, better cinema, easier scripting, etc. Personally I think it was because of the difficulties of portraying such subtleties on film as those that existed in the relationship between Leto and Jessica. To me it seems a very important point to the setup of the whole series but as much as I love the film, it seriously is just eye candy for the fans of the books.


I would pay cash money to see the scene where Jessica confronts Thufir (after Idaho's slip-up) committed to film. Seeing those two stalk each other would be a treat indeed.

Your post brings up a thought I had the other day while re-reading Dune: that early scene between Yueh and Jessica was really a marvel. It's the first scene where we have one character actively trying to manipulate another character (and succeeding!). And it shows us a rare failure for Jessica, proving that, while she has great abilities, she's not infallible.
