That was like an audiobook with pictures. Glorious.

On the other hand, I should just watch a movie I suppose, lol. Still, very well done.

9/10 really?

Like....6/10, maybe. It was too in between Pitch Black and Chronicles...the whole dropping of the Necro plot line was infuriating.

"some place called....NOT Furya" is a great line though.

I thought it was ok... Not a real ending to the "chronicle".

Saw it yesterday. I was bummed that the Necro plot was 5 minutes long. The dialogue was just horrendous. Not that the first two were academy award contenders, but this felt so contrived at every turn. How many times was she going to talk about "****ing guys" OK, we get it, you like the box. But hey, pink nipples, right?

Also, it was so close to just being a Pitch Black reboot. Fighting monsters in the rain at night.

That is what made it awesome. This universe is simple, believable, and Riddick as the anti-hero is perfect.

I want to know what the hell the dog found. I thought it was a golf ball...

Looked like a golf ball to me as well. It gave credence to the idea that the planet may not have always been some barren, abandoned, dirtball - instead, that something happened (a la Pitch Black) to reduce the planet to its current state of 1 human inhabitant.

Going to go see it as soon as possible. Didn't have time this weekend. Vin getting the rights to Riddick is fantastic business sense. I have had the chronicles blue ray super edition that came with the animated movie that falls between Pitch Black and Chronicles. Watched blindsided the other day. Makes great sense how he didn't embrace the faith, and refused to make the vow, then Vakko and the rest of the necros turned on him.

Very excited to go see it.

I will admit that I'm disappointed that it's a Pitch Black retread. I understand that it's much lower budget than Chronicles, but I would've preferred something that moved the overall arc along (I believe it's to essentially find his Furya planet), and show us more of the universe. Even if this was to be a stop-gap to re-raise interest and funding for the next two movies, yeah, redoing Pitch Black just feels like taking the easy, safe road.

Having said that, I can't wait to watch it, and I know I'm going to love it.

finally got around to seeing this. I enjoyed it. MUCH better than chronicles, which was a turd. Not as good as pitch black, but partly because it was so similar. The monsters were cool, but there needed to be more different kinds of monsters to really make the movie. Also, while I know this series isn't really all about character development, it'd have been kind of nice if Riddick came off a LITTLE less like an all knowing, all ass-kicking bald version of superman.

I did eventually watch this. It was ok. I'm surprised with all the hate on Chronicles which I really enjoyed. I thought while this latest was ok, it was too much same old same old. For me:

Pitch Black >= Chronicles >>> Riddick

The best part is of course, when Riddick kills the dumbass merc leader puts the head in the box, all in just 5s (or whatever the time limit was supposed to be).

I'll go with this order.

I thought the end of Riddick was like the end of Anchorman 2. Out of ideas? Let's go to the well again with nearly the exact same scenario as the previous movie.

Chronicles had a lot of stupid things that was what I enjoyed about it. Death by tea cup!

I actually enjoyed it, but it was just a little silly with the bad dialogue.

Recently binge watched all three. Before that I had only ever seen about 15 minutes of pitch black.

Chronicles>pitch black>riddick.

I feel like I need to go back and watch chronicles now. I don't remember it super well, butI do remember thinking it was pretty terrible. But a good number of you guys liked it, so maybe I was in the wrong mood or something.
