Pics from Dune

So, I was looking for pics of The Police for Pecos and came across some great pics from the movie Dune. I mean the 1984 version starring Kyle MacLachlan. Yeah, the movie sucked, but you're going to love this pic of Kyle as Paul Atreides. Not particularly work friendly.

Oh crap, that's nice!  I've often thought slashing Paul and Feyd would be a great challenge. 

Oh and here's Sting as Feyd-Rautha, fresh from the steamroom, looking gay as shit, with that weird thing on his crotch:

LOL!  Yeah, it was such a bad movie, IMHO, but oh yum, the possibilities . . .

Hey Shu, thanks for sharing. I assume Hyde is singing about Dune?

the song is called DUNE, so I kinda joked, but the text is not really anything connected to the movie, it is really a good poem tho^^ <3 very romantic and melancholy~

he has lovely verses^^ <3

Damn!!! Both pics are just HOT!

And yes, those two in that movie would be incredibly shashable. Although the sex would be much about power and dominance...which is not necessariy a bad thing.

power and dominance - yes absolutely. Who would top? There are other sweeter pairings in Dune, Paul and Duncan for example. I'm sure Duneslash is out there, but I've never looked for it. Just couldn't resist that pic of Paul.

Oh and I should add that I loved the original book Dune, even though I should note how homophobic the thing is. I think it should be slashed well and often. *g*

how homophobic the thing is
That's interesting... I read it as a kid and loved it, but I confess that I don't remember enough of it to re-examine it... Maybe I'll go down to the library and read it again and slash it in the next Yuletide Exchange - there are always Dune requests there, I think.

It's been many years since I read it too. But the depiction of the Baron as this disgusting, sadistic, homosexual pedophile struck me as homophobic, especially since much is made of his proclivities, including debauching his nephew, and since no other good, heroic character in the book is gay - well, it just seems Herbert was making a statement there. By all means go for a story. You are marvelously versatile in your fandoms, m'dear.

I should read some of that Police slash one of these days...

Police slash, amazing. Is there any prominent figure out there who hasn't been slashed? Well maybe Dick Cheney - oooooh, [runs shrieking]

lol!! My God! I'll have nightmares for days now. ;)

I always liked Gurney Hallock (sp?)..you know, Patrick Stewart pre-Jean Luc? And from the book totally loved Duncan Idaho, so his reduced part in the movie was a bit ...disappointing. And Feyd? He scared the crap out of me! lol.
elfscribe5 at 2007-06-28 02:59 (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, Patrick Stewart was good in that movie. I've never seen him bad in anything. You're right, not near enough Duncan. I think they just couldn't possibly do justice to the complexity of that book in a little over 2 hours. I thought the sci fi channel series was much better, but they did it in what 8 hours? Yeah, Feyd is a totally scary character. As I recall Sting did him justice. It's been a long time since I saw the movie. I liked the Feyd better in the longer series. Very hot in a very creepy way.

Oh, I like the first one - and there is definite potential in that pairing. But the bat thingy has to go! **snort**

LOL! Yeah, the bat thingie. I can't tell you how hard I laughed when I saw that pic with that caption. A little over the top aren't we there.

Yep, yep...

LMAO! I love the caption! Heh.

Yeah, the piccie of Kyle (as Paul) is quite yummy. Looks like he's peeling off that hard armor shell with that come hither expression. And the crotch bat! Who designed the costumes for that flic I wonder?
