    The Riddick character is actually fairly interesting rather than being another generic action hero.

    Is Babylon AD *that* bad? I was planning to rent it this weekend. My wife *loves* that Diesel chap, although I don't understand what she sees in him...

    This. I absolutely adore The Chronicles of Riddick. :) I'm fucking stoked that there'll be another one, and possibly two movies on the way now. :'D /does a little jig

    Actually, the direct sequel to Pitch Black is Dark Fury, which is turn followed pretty much directly by Chronicles. A fourth and fifth movie in the series would be most MOST welcome! :)

    Didn't they say Pitch Black is to Chronicles of Riddick what The Hobbit is to Lord of the Rings? You wouldn't call The Fellowship of the Ring the second volume. Chrinciles of Riddick is the first Chronicles film.

    The only interesting new character in CoR was Toombs.

    In fact interesting characters in total pretty much just amounted to him and Riddick. Though I think Riddick worked better as a mysterious psychopath than an alien warrior race with random super powers.

    Fair enough, sounds about right to me actually. I don't know what that makes Dark Fury then though, The Book of Lost Tales or something?

    I'm amazed at all the Chronicles of Riddick love in this thread. It was just a bloody mess of totally random events and characters fuss-arsing about in a Universe that seemed to have nothing to do with Pitch Black.

    I stopped watching after half way through after yet another apparently arbitrary and uninteresting plot development piled up on top of all the other tedious crap that had happened up to that point made me reach breaking point.

    PB was brilliant in its simplicity. CoR is like "MY FRIST SCI_FI LOLZ" by a 14 year old.

    Different strokes for different folks I guess.

    The main problem with CoR (outside of the utter lack of exposition behind the plot aside from throwing around unexplained jargon) is that they just didn't know what to do with Riddick himself. They couldn't decide between him being an unstoppable invincible warrior or someone who just got lucky due to someone else's actions. It made the action scenes totally uneven.

    Man I bought CoR for a quid from Zavvi before it shut. Now I'm sick and have time to catch up on DVDs. So I bunged it in, 29 minutes later I stopped, what plop! May come back to it......

    See I never really loved PB, I just got bored with it about 2/3 of the way through. I could see that CoR was so nearly great that I fell for it.

    I'm a sucker for a big soapy space opera though, I need one.

    I lurk. If I've spoken to you, I'm either impassioned, or drunk.

    I like CoR, it's like a modern Dune in all it's terrible glory.

    Hmmmm

    Definitely looking more PB than CoR. Not sure how I feel about that as I loved how daft and OTT CoR was.

    Yeah, I love CoR. Can't help but watch it whenever it's on. It's a Sci-Fi Conan the Barbarian.

    Really don't know what to expect from this. I've read it will be more like PB.

    I will simply restate my position of 4 years ago.

    Chronicles was one of the worst films ever made.

    The first one was aces.

    FCUTA!

    Happy its more like PB.
    Beyond the prison scene, COR became a an over-ambitious mess.

    I'm excited for this. VINNIE D IS BACK.

    Trailer

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    Looks... boring.
  • Deleted user 15 May 2013 19:53:42
    Looks like all they did for a plot was merge Pitch Black and Chronicles together.
