I liked the Lynch movie for pretty much the same reason you like the McDunes: it was DUNE on the big screen. I'll still watch it if it's on, just for shits-n-giggles.
I like the Children mini much better than the Dune one, even though my satellite channels over here seem capable only of reshowing the first. (Was on again recently... it's like six or seven years now they've been showing it. )
Got any military scifi favorites you can recommend?
The new books are good (maybe?) as just a mindless entertainment set in the Dune universe. REAL Dune is great for stimulating the mind. They can probably be enjoyed separately, but I don't think anyone can seriously think them of equal quality or worth.

may I suggest that once you've read thru prequels and the original series (dont bother with the inter-quels) read sadworms and grunters. at that point, you'll understand why we hate all of their books so much. the house books are bad but bearable if only for the mild entertainment value. the jihad books are shit, but since they're so far removed from Dune, you probably get entertainment and can mentally separate them. once you read those last 2, you'll see how they've butt-fucked Frank's corpse and will spew the same vitriol for them that we do here from time to time
