    My theory is: if you're going to make a movie from a book, it damned well better live up to the book. The Dune series is considered by many to be the single greatest work of science fiction. If you can't live up to that, you should even try.

    Movies aren't books, they're a separate artistic medium. It's pointless to criticize a movie as being "not like the book". A movie isn't simply a reproduction of the book in visual terms, it's a separate piece of art.
