    Odd, key details were left out or just not explained, for sure. There was a ton of lore you would just need to know before watching the movie to understand all of what you were watching.

    Weirding modules are at the top of that list. Either didn’t go into depth in the movie and I completely missed them, or they were just cut completely. Of all Dune lore, those were always super odd to me and didn’t even fit in the original movie from years ago.

      Weirding modules

      iirc, they’re a conceit of the 1984 Lynch dune, and while cool, aren’t in any of the books.

        Ok. I got the old movie and the original video game mixed up with proper lore. (I am just old. It’s been more than a few years since I read the books and watched the original movie quite a few time. Sigh.)

          yeah it was a cool bit from the movie - iirc Lynch couldn’t figure out a way for paul’s teaching the fremen the ‘weirding way’ not to look like desert kung fu, so they went that route. hence weirding modules.

          re: age - man, it gets us all, the past is just a smeared window for half my memories lol

      I watched the new movie, got into sci-fi books a little later and read the entire Dune series (rewatched the movie after the first book for fresh comparison). There was a lot the was kinda glossed over, but the main theme of fremen and why the water was kinda devoid.

      Thats not ringing any bells so I googled it, seems to be a movie replacement for the prana-bindu wierding, so makes sense for it to seem odd. I’ve never watched it, before my time… haha I’ve been meaning to though.
