Chronicles of Riddick (2004)

Recommended Posts

To borrow a beloved phrase: THIS MOVIE IS BONKERS.

 

There's weird politics, "elementals," prison planets, and Vin Diesel.

 

I've tried to watch it three times, and I still have no idea what the hell is going on. Production values are pretty first-rate (aside from some wonky CGI), but the screenplay is uncomprehensible. And the acting... my god. Diesel's on-again, off-again voice over is so laconic that it makes the Blade Runner VO seem jolly.

All I remember is that this movie has some really terrible camera angles.

 

Everything is kind of tilted.

 

And it lacked any of the grit and oomph of Pitch Black.

I think if we were going to do one of these I'd recommend the third one. It's basically just Pitch Black 2: Pitch Blackier. Plus I think June would have a lot to say about the epic levels of misogyny.

I have to agree with this. In my opinion, as crazy as Chronicles is, it is equal parts boring. I think either Pitch Black or Riddick would be more entertaining for HDTGM.
