Exterminate all rational spice.

I approve of this experiment wholeheartedly. Dune would be much better with no dialog at all. Dune Without Words:

(Apparently embedding is disabled because Youtube won't allow it to be embedded, rather than the uploader. Insert formless obscenities here.)

In fact, I think there are probably a lot of movies that would be better without dialog. Off the top of my head, I'll nominate: Ken Russell's Salome, which is gorgous to look at but absolutely intolerable to listen to, and The Cell. I guess 2001 would work pretty well too, since it's almost silent already. I think you could make a pretty good go of Bill and Ted this way, too.

Previously, previously.
