The Lynch version is a great film - but it isn't Dune. I very rarely watch it these days. If it is on a movie channel I will skip it unless there is absolutely nothing else to watch, and even then the chances are Venom will just be watched for the nth time.

It takes too many liberties with the plot and characters, and the ending is just cringeworthy; I walked out of the theatre without watching the credits roll the first time I saw it.

The TV series was a better adaptation of the book, but it too had its flaws in the casting and acting department. If it is on I will watch it.
