Another problem with Chronicles was the fight scene on (can't remember but it was where they were gonna be scorched) had no sound.

It just didn't have the same feel as Pitch Black at all to me. It was a crappy action movie with little suspense.

Pitch Black rocks, I just don't know how Twohy ****ed it up.

Way too much money, I guess, can make the director do more than he needs to or originally wanted to which definitely seemed like an issue. Good point.

I actually liked the style/visuals of Chronicles and the action.

I think Chronicles of Riddick took away what made Pitch Black good; the fact that the character of Riddick was a supporting character and unpredictable made him special. By making him a lead character and a hero to the cosmos took away the mystique. It became way too big when the character should have been small.

I think the character worked better that way but also it was how mysterious the character was in Pitch Black. He had too much dialogue in Chronicles. In Pitch Black he was a man of little words and the few he said were mocking and you didn't know if he could be trusted.


What is really sad about Chronicles was that the videogame, Butcher Bay, was much better than the movie. He wasn't a good guy. He was just a character that was hard to figure out.

I can't wait for March 3rd (I think that's the date) when the knew game is released which also comes with Butcher Bay remastered for the 360. Should be sweet. I would like a prison escape sequel if Riddick were to continue on in theatres. Perhaps a prequel of him escaping from prison and then a sequel to Chronicles of what he does with his new "army".

I'm just a smart dude. lol.

Yeah, I liked the fact that you didn't if you could trust Riddick or not in Pitch Black. But in Chronicles, he was still an anti-hero but it was more cut and dry. I didn't like that.

I agree.


Hopefully he can revamp some of his career and push for another movie because right now he's hurting. Nobody really likes Vin. There's rumors that he's gay and I think the general audience would have a problem with an action hero being gay. He's done too much of the same character and the only character he made his own is Riddick and that's what I want to see more of. I am surprised he hasn't gotten more "war movie" roles like Saving Private Ryan considering his short film got him started and that was a soldier story.

When Vin became big, I was a fan of his. But I think he pulled a Stallone and went down the wrong path, career wise.

Not doing XXX2 was a mistake, Doing the kids film the Pacifier was a mistake, Babylon AD would have been great if the studio had not ****ed around with the film.

Technically he hasn't done THAT many movies that were main stream so i think if he makes some right film choices he can get back on top

Then I implore you to watch the directos cut, I hated that that scene had no sound also, but they added it back for the DC as well as some new, cool scenes.

I did, I thought they did a good job of creating a new and believable universe, not as good as Serenity, but a good start nontheless.

I dont think skipping XXX2 was a mistake because it was pretty horrible. I dont think The Pacifier was a mistake, he was just trying to widen his appeal. It failed, yes, but the intentions were good.

^He needs to get back on track, its as simple as that, although going back to the F&F and xXx franchise is the wrong place to go IMO. I just hope they are successful so he has a chance of getting another Riddick movie off the ground.

well maybe the reason xxx2 was horrid is that Vin wasnt in it, now they are doing a 3rd and he is back.... which really dents the franchise even more!

I watched the director's cut for the first time tonight, I'd only seen the theatrical cut once before so couldn't say what was added tbh.

Not as good as PB but way better than I thought it would be going by reviews that came out at the time. The only thing that I'm not keen on in the movie is the Necromancers, horrible uniforms, ridiculous dialoge, not very good baddies.

I'd like to see a sequel, you never know, it could happen, it could be good, but yeah, it's unlikely it will happen. Hope so though, Riddick is a great character, love that teacup scene.

^There were some great moments in COR and I believe a sequel, if they can get it off the ground, could be really good. The COR DC is so much better than the theatrical version.

I saw the unrated cut and couldn't believe how much I liked it. I skipped seeing it in theaters because I heard it was terrible and I was blown away when my friend bought the DVD.

and that's where we differ. Big time.

the Necromancers uniforms and over-all visuals/speech were one of my favorite parts of the movie. the way the head guy walks down a long path as the giant ships bow towards him. His mask with the many faces. It's all really fantastic looking.

Ya, I tend to agree though I liked the first two F/F movies I dispised the 3rd one. I though XXX was okay,but it lacked anything new and exciting except for the opening sequence.
I thought he was good in I think its called the Knockaround guys were he plays a thug. I think he needs to stick to those type of roles imo,I sortof enjoyed Babylon AD,but as someone said the studio messed it up to some degree...
I did'nt really enjoy Riddick all that much it just lacked that feel of Pitch Black. It got to full of itself imo,and maybe like one guy said they had too big of a budget...got cgi happy and stuff. They should of made it more like the first in making it a dark movie,and keeping Riddick the anti-hero. It just did'nt hit the spot.
As of now I'm not sure I would want another one the way they finished the last..Really what are they gonna do now hes ruler of the Underverse?
They should of done the second one like a Bladerunner movie think it would of worked better..

I love everything about the Riddick universe. Pitch Black was a excellent suspense thriller/actioner. COR was a good adventure/actioner with some really great scenes. Someone mentioned the fight scene on Crematoria, I thought it was pretty cool that it went all silent. It's like Riddick is in his zone, the killing zone, just going off on one. Sorta like Joker hanging out of the cop car in TDK. And what can I say about EFBB? Probably one of the best games I have ever played. And to think the graphics on that are better than some 360 and ps3 games today, a truly brilliant game.

out of Diesel's three franchises, I think he SHOULD continue on with this one. At least he has that new Riddick game coming out.
