Dune

 (1984)

Dune Blu-ray delivers great video and reference-quality audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

David Lynch's baroque rendering of Frank Herbert's detailed, complex, and deliberately paced epic science-fiction novel is a muddled but visually stunning affair. It's the year 10,191, and the desert planet Dune has been taken over by the Harkonnens, oppressive conquerors who desire the precious spice that lies beneath Dune's arid sands. The story concerns the attempts of a young warrior messiah, Paul Atreides (Kyle MacLachlan), to lead the native inhabitants in an uprising against the evil empire--and battle the giant man-eating worms that guard the coveted mind expanding -and life prolonging- spice.

For more about Dune and the Dune Blu-ray release, see Dune Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Kyle MacLachlan, José Ferrer, Sting, Jürgen Prochnow, Francesca Annis, Leonardo Cimino

Dune Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Dune treks to Blu-ray with an appealing VC-1 encoded transfer in full 1080p and a 2.35:1 aspect ratio. The good news is, this is certainly the best this film has ever looked, with a sharpness and clarity that puts the previous DVD releases (in any of the many versions of the film) to shame. For a film 25 years old now (it hardly seems possible), this is a remarkably good looking transfer, with abundant detail and thankfully no artifacting on usual suspects like Sian Phillips' heavily brocaded costumes or the arabesques of the Emperor's palace. The bad news is while the color is very robust and well saturated and provides some really eye popping moments, some of the flesh tones seem more than a bit on the ruddy red side for my personal taste, and the higher resolution of the Blu-ray really brings out some of the now "ancient" technology of the special effects, including matte paintings that look patently fake, and green screen work that clearly shows its age. On the whole, though, Dune's many special effects come through quite splendidly on this release, especially the many models and miniatures utilized. Black levels are impressively inky throughout, lending the space segments appropriate depth, and contrast is excellent as well.


Dune Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Get ready for a rumbling good time with Dune's very impressive DTS-HD MA 5.1 track, which kicks into LFE heaven from the first moments and rarely lets up for more than two hours. This is one of the most bass heavy tracks in recent memory, full of thundering low frequencies that will leave your floorboards vibrating in ecstasy. Directionality and surround activity are also top notch throughout this effort. The opening palace scene with Ferrer and Madsen is a great example, with a beautiful hall ambience filling the surround channels and various groups of people clearly and perfectly directional as they move about the scene. All of the wonderful foley effects fill the soundfield with a wide array of aural pleasures, not the least of which are the omnipresent wind effects on Arrakis, which whip and pan from channel to channel like an out of control cyclone. Dialogue is always clear and precise, though, while directional, is uniformly anchored to the front channels, at least insofar as the main characters are concerned. I'm less fond of Toto's synth-laden score, but it's reproduced here with excellent fidelity. The entire track has incredible dynamic range, even with its omnipresent emphasis on lower frequencies. If only the rest of the movie were this fun.
