I was wading through my film collection and came across Dune...
It has it's SP moments...
I'd like to see a 'Directors Cut'.

I would agree that it's VERY steampunk.  There were several different versions made of the David Lynch film, and an extended edition just got released (well... in 2006 - which is relatively recent).

PS, I hated the Sci-Fi Channel remake.  Just my opinion.

I watched this recently again about 2 weeks ago. I noticed that House Atreides is steampunk style, and House Harkonnen is pretty much dieselpunk. So I guess that makes us "good guys" too.

I have not seen the movie(s?), but I have read the books. They are great sci-fi classics, but did not strike me as steampunk at all. I guess I should watch the movies?

Yeah, it's the movie rather than the books...

Specifically the original David Lynch movie, not the Sci-Fi "miniseries" one.

Oh yes. David Lynch's movie is quite steampunk. It was bad, in a good sort of way. Classic.

I'm another of the read-the-books-not-seen-the-films, and though I read them all in a flurry of passion and reclining quite some time gone now, I picked up the first one a week or so ago and thought that the entire dune mythos was one ripe for the steampunking.
In fact as far as I can figure, it would be mighty hard to make a filmic adaptation and NOT be at least a little bit steamy.
