  1. Brian says:

    Definitely watching Dune, but it also reminds me that I need to watch Cobra Kai.

  2. JD DeLuzio says:

    Dune is great. Planet Dune? Yeah. I agree. Not in any way attempting a cash-in.

    I still have not seen 1982’s Basket Case, though I have watched the even lower-budget (because that was actually possible) rip-off/parody/inspired by a forgotten internet joke production, Bag of Crushed Child.
