After seeing ALL of them i would recommend in order of greatness

1 Dune 3rd Stage Edition
2 Dune ADM Extended Workprint Edition
3 Dune Fanfiltration Edition
4 Dune Spicediver Edition

3rd Stage is the one you definitely want to see, Spicedivers edit is way too much like the extended edition and has some nasty edit issues (not seen V2 so cant comment on that one).

Fanfiltrations edit is excellent but is severely let down by the picture quality.

ADM's edit is amazing but lacks SFX (mainly the blue eyes)

3rd Stage edit is pretty much flawless, blue eyes are fixed and is my preferred version to watch.

I didn't expect a response that fast (if at all). Thanks nOmArch.

my favorite WAS fanfiltration's, but with the Third Stage edit (haven't seen it yet, but grabbed it) i'm expecting that situation to change.

ADM's restored my faith in this film...I was blown away. Although there's no correction of blue eyes and stuff.

As I understand it, the 3rd Stage Edition uses ADM's as a base and corrects these things, but removes a couple other scenes - but puts them on the disk as extras.

These two use the Princess Irulan introduction as well, which I prefer.

I haven't seen the 3rd stage version, but since everyone says it's basically an improved version of the ADM edit, you can't go wrong with it.

Watching ADM's edit, it was still not a good film, but it was pretty cool to see that the film was actually supposed to make sense had Lynch been able to finish it to his liking.

3rd stage and ADM's are both great. ADM's is a little longer, 3rd stage feels a little more complete with the blue eyes fixed. You won't go wrong with either one.

I love the 3rd Stage version, the stuff that was put back in is the best stuff from the deleted scenes. the stuff that was left out was great to see as extras features, and it was great to see them enhanced in some manner and also has great explanations for why they were left out.

the 3rd stage version I think is definitely the definitive version of David Lynch's Sci-Fi Masterpiece.

I misread this topic as "Dude, which one do you like the best?"

I would also recommend the Third Stage Edition. I believe it is about as close to a complete version of the film as is likely to be seen and is one of the finest fanedits in existence.

How does "Dune: The Alternative Edition Redux " compare to the other fanedits?

I've only seen 3rd Stage and thought it was great. I've heard good things about Redux but read that the thought monologues have been removed. That was one of my favourite things about the Lynch version!

Which is why 3rd Stage wil always be my favourite, if you remove the inner thoughts you ruin the movie.

Other than that though the Redux is very good, I just don't like some of the artistic choices made in the edit but it is very competantly made and has excellent picture and sound quality.

I just popped in my copy of Alternative Redux and there's definitely still some narration. Even if you like the narration you have to admit that some of it is repetitive and unnecessary. Third Stage is impressive, but it keeps all of Lynch's more bizarre and unnecessary scenes like Paul magically making it rain the end.

Yes he just removed some of it, still too much for my liking.

No.

Third Stage is impressive, but it keeps all of Lynch's more bizarre and unnecessary scenes like Paul magically making it rain the end.

Not a big fan of the rain scene too but they weren't trying to make a 'book' cut they were making the best version of Lynch's vision so it stay's in, unfortunately.
