hmm.. it´s difficult to explain this type of pronunciation in English... let´s see... it´s simmilar to the sound when you say "tuesday", but the "e" is more acentuated. The "e" has a simmilar sound to the e of "ferryman", but you say it fast. Hmm.. the most simmilar is the word "shoes". The sound of oe is very simmilar. This is not a tongue brake, because people can say the normally.

Hey, someone's talking about my favorite movies here...

FireBall2K favorite films:
1) Matrix (saw it on Saturday, it's amazing!!! Can't wait for "The Matrix Reloaded" on 2002!)
2) Dune
3) Starship Troopers
4) Face Off
5) Hmm...hmm...dunno...let's say (god have mercy on me) Tomb Raider, because that's the last movie I saw...

1) Star Wars (all the movies)
2) Akira
3) The Truman Show
4) City of Angels
5) i don´t know... maybe The Matrix?
anyway, i found a word with a very simmilar sound of "ue": twente
The "r" can be the final sound of are or care. The "El" has the same sound of "help"
The "te" has almost the same sound of great (without the g) but with a stronger e.
With accents it would be: Él Mûérte

The Heir: I always pronounced it as M-ew-erte (like DarkFlame said). I guess the "ue" is kinda similar to the Dutch "eu".

They're making a movie of Dune too? *
I don't have much favorite movies, since I hardly ever watch any... I've got Akira but the quality sucks.

I think The Matrix was my favorite movie so far. I also liked The Game, very cool plot.



* anyone played "Emperor: Battle for Dune" yet?

wacko - Have you heard of the game Majestic? If you liked the film "The Game", you'll probably like this "Game".

hey, why you use that nick? The Killer in spanish is "El Matador", "El Muerte" is "The Death". Another thing: the sounds in spanish aren´t open, are more "closed". The "e" is more... hmm..

Wacko, shame on you!

The first Dune stuff were books, in total 3.
A year before Starwars was brought out, Dune (the movie, no it isn't called that way) was brought out. Everybody liked the movie and talked all about it untill Starwars came out. After that the movie was slowely forgotten.
Untill Dune 1 was created in 1987 (I thought so), it was a combination between stratagy and adventure. Westwood thought they could do it better and throwed all the adventure out of it and invented 'RTS'


Damn, how could I forget 'The Game' and "The Devils Advocate"

wacko - Heres the Majestic Website:
Its not "released" Yet.
http://www.majestic.ea.com/
It Possibly has one of the best slogans ever.

"The Devils Advocate"? Doh!!
I thought that film was great, perticuly near the end where you briefly see the Devil with his wings from when he was an angel.
Who have thought making a film list would be this hard.

No! You're all stupid!
There are 6 Dune books:
Dune (the original)
Dune Messiah
Children of Dune
God Emperor of Dune
Heretics of Dune
Chapterhouse: Dune

There's a reason why I'm called Muad'Dib!

I played Dune Emperor, and I'm getting it soon.

There's a game for Matrix?????

P.S - El, you sound american, I knew actually how to say your name...

P.P.S - Did anyone play Lineage?
