Actually, by definition, my statement should indicate that I think the pastiche elements were poorly handled.

And when you take away the thick layers of Herbert and Howard, you're left with a fairly bland action flick.

Pitch Black was a far superior film, in no small part because it contented itself with being what it was- rather than reaching for the stars, only to fall on its face.

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

Chronicles is entertaining, but Pitch black is much better.

Not sure where they can go with Chronilces 2. I think they made a mistake making him the leader of the Necrontyr. Riddick the computer game is also entertaining, although its far to easy.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

I like it well enough but Humakt is correct in that Pitch Black was much better.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Question for anyone who has Pitch Black on VHS.
My copy has a short called "Beyond Pitch Black" and deals with some back story and suggests the angle of how the Bounty Hunters get in for Riddick (and Dark Fury).

Does anyone else have a copy of this, or has seen it? I've not seen it listed on any DVD version, or as an easter egg (but I do now have a DivX'd filecopy now.).

I liked all of them, btw.

Hey! Where'd ... Everybody ... go?

I'll go with everyone else and say Pitch Black was a better movie.

Chronicles was good mind.

I thought Riddick was a wicked film, i didnt see Pitch black till a long time after and thats also a good film but Riddick is awsome! Ive NO idea how they are going to do another Riddick if they are because of the way it ended. The world they live in reminds me so much of the 40k world, its so dark and without hope they could be twins!!

Id LOVE to see what Riddick could do in power armour, bolter and power sword ;-) lol

Real Men/Women/Aliens/Heretics/Warp Spawned Filth/Big Scary Space Monsters play Battlefleet Gothic... why dont you???

Apparently if they do make another film it would be about the Underverse, I've read this once or twice on various 'upcoming Movie release/rumour pages'. but as said, it wouldn't be for a few years yet as Vin's working on numerous other projects at the momnent.

Ha! Riddick in power armour! I'd also love to see him, I wonder if he would be a loyalist or a traitor. Or maybe he'd go off as a rogue and fight as he saw fit. If you read the back of the book (yeah they write a book on it!), it has a little bit on what he did after he killed the marshall, like he ordered that the history of the Necromongers be gathered, this had alot of stuff on the underverse. So they might do it like Nato13 said.

Ahh god you don't have to be so critical of it. Jeezus it wasn't supposed to a film of creative genius. It was entertaining and visually interesting. I mean all those ships were really cool with strange exhaust and cool looking roman/goth design. The rest of it was a cheezy action movie. = good.

Is fancy bread in the heart or in the head
