Star Wars is nothing like Dune. Well bits of it are (i.e. there’s a sandy planet with caves) in so much as the whole story line is stolen from other stories and rather crudely pieced together a bit like our beloved Harry Potter..

Apocalypse Now is faithful to Heats of Darkness in the same way as my life mirrors that of Alexander the Great. He conquered countries. I once played conkers. That type of thing
Ie: Its a fairly spurious link
Binski have you actually read HOD? I think they are very similar in terms of the narrative, structure, pace and tension of the story, the descriptive locations are easily transposed from HOD to AN. I think the choppers and machine guns are the only real difference.
True Grit 69/2010 vs book are excellent examples. Despite the Coens trying to stay faithful to the book and saying they didn’t watch the 69 film there are some scenes that are so similar it’s uncanny. The explanation is that in those scenes that are similar the source material drove the film in the same direction. The worry is that because the Coens said that they didn’t watch the 69 film they didn’t account for the actors watching the 69 film and accidentally reproducing the performance they had seen. For example Barry Pepper’s Ned Pepper is remarkably similar to Robert Duvall’s Ned Pepper, especially the voice when he shouts “too thin rooster, too thin.”Posted 6 years agoBigJohnSubscriber

re. Schindler’s Lifts:
We had a very excellent chap come to present to us from Schindler, and he was very keen to explicitly point out that the company was called Schindler Upward Mobility.
It was great to see 20% of the audience get the humour, and slowly explain it to the rest. The wave of slapping foreheads and smiles worked around the room. 😆Posted 6 years ago
