    If anyone saw Dune on the Scifi Channel :D , then they would love the fact that the Scifi channel is extending this saga,with a continuation of what happens to Paul Atriedes,his love Chiani,and the rest of his family. It will air this Sunday.....so look at it folks. I hope that it will be good!!!! (y)

    hi alias8000!can you please ask your Dad about how the very last Dune book ended? I have not been able to find the book and a really would like to know. It would put my mind at ease. I heard that it has a climatic ending!

    A pm is a personal message. On the bottom of each post there is a little blue button that says PM on it with a little picture of 2 ppl. You can find one of her posts and click the button on that post. Its like an email.

    I asked my dad but he didn't really make it sound that interesting. Maybe i should ask him again b/c what he said really didn't give enough info.

    o and aria. if you read too high of a gradient then you don't always understand what they're saying and you just keep on reading then you start yawning well, i could go on and on. o and one other thing. sometimes yuo can't really understand a book b/c you don't have enough life experiance.

    okay dokie. that makes sense. then you'll probably end up reading the book again when you're older.

    I finally saw Children Of Dune,
    It was superb!!!Loved every minute of it!!!!My favorite character is Paul Muad'dib. He went through difficult times... with losing his beloved Chani and all those people killing in his name, even though he clearly did not want this and finally only being able to gain peace through death. The actor portrayed this character with a lot of depth(plus sex appeal and charm!!!) No matter how many different adaptions of this movie may come out in the future....Alec Newman will always be Muad'dib for me!!!.
    I also enjoyed Alia, that lady was one tough chick and yet fragile!!!(Kudos to Daniela Amavia)......Leto chose to sacrifice his humanity in order to preserve the future.(wow)
    My Favorite scenes:
    1. Any scene with Muad'dib in it!!!
    2. Chani's birth scenes and then her telling Muad'dib that "nothing in this universe is as great as my love for you" , then she dies.
    3. Alia's fight scene, her dictatorship(my way is the only way!!), her husband catching her having sex with Javid(lol, she made her devoted husband cry because of that!!!)
    4. any Leto and Ghanima scenes(the actors did great!!)
    5.Leto's reunion with his father and him telling his father of the love they never got to share as father and son.
    6.Leto's final fight scenes with Alia(he kicked his aunt's ass!)......you saw Alia'a vunerability as she turned to her mother and said "Mummy help me!!!!"
    7.Alia killing herself in the end in order to stop the demon inside her.... and as she is dying she tells her mother, "I want my brother" (see she was good deep down! and was only trying in her mind, to do want her brother wanted....because she loved and kind of worshipped her brother Muad'dib!!!)


    The litany against fear was fabulous:"Fear is the mind killer...I will face my fear and let in pass though me"
    .......sorry for spending so long on this post I just loved the miniseries so much :shamefullyembarrased:
