The recent attempt to do "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" was a noble attempt but they tried to cram too much content into the movie. It's a shame that Hollywood has shied away from making long movies in the vein as "Gone with the Wind" because I really think it's better to have a faithful yet longer adaptation than to try to cram too much into 2 hours.

I think that "Dune" is nearly impossible to do on film because there's no easy way to explain the history and politics that are integral to the story. Though I must say that the '80's version wasn't entirely without merit; Sting in a diaper was worth the price of admission.
