My main personal pet peeve with certain sci-fi movies of this ilk (Im sorry Star Wars fans) is the over-enunciated fantasy babble.

I think the reason people dislike Dune is it can't match the book for detailed nuisances and 'plans within plans'....There's no way David Lynch within the two hours allotted to him by the executive producers and the studio could tell a complex, multi character, multi plotted, story in only 2 hours.
