This was my first experience with the 1984 Dune and thought it was just tremendous. I had only heard negative to mixed things about it so I give 15MaF all the credit for this extremely positive viewing experience.

I may have a new go-to version of this film now. I've always liked Dune, warts and all and I really enjoy the spicediver edit. But this one is my favorite so far.

The edits are very well done, no issues at all. Video quality is excellent and probably the best variation I have now. Same goes for audio. It's really nice to have a good surround track available and the updates are great. The recuts and trims help move the story along and remove the most egregiously annoying lines, smoothing out the story telling. Well done all around.

An incredible job. A great choice of additional scenes, some cuts, and some amazing work on sound and visuals.

I have always loved this film -- but in its theatrical cut incarnation. The various longer versions that floated around e.g. the two TV versions that changed some bits and threw in every bit of additional footage available (plus recycling some shots) did not, in my opinion, add much of value. They hammered the pace, and complicated the already complicated world-building with excessive details. Being as comprehensive as possible is not necessarily the same as being good as possible.

This edit is something else. What it adds matters; what it cuts works; quality is consistent; and indeed, and it does a better job on some key visuals than the official Blu-ray. A huge amount of work has gone into this, and it shows. Some incredibly recovery and rebuilding of visuals, some amazing sound work.

This will definitely be my go-to version.

Oh, and there is some amazing cover art if you want to burn this and put it on your shelf.

This edit is astounding. The amount of work that has gone into this is clear, and it really works. Personal preference wishes some of the cut scene remained, but I understand due to the quality issues, since this edit it all about quality. While Spicediver's 'Alternative Edition Redux' has few conceptual edits that I still prefer, the edit choices here are all masterful, and due to the quality it is the best way to experience this movie.

This is simply the best way to experience David Lynch's Dune. There are couple of minutes, where it seems to lose resolution, but overall it's great.
