Went to see Riddick with my sister and friends this weekend. I'm pretty new to the whole Riddick/Vin Diesel thing (my only Diesel movie to date was The Iron Giant,a movie that made both ME and my brother bawl our eyes out. ) .
Only the day befor Inky and I watched Pitch Black for the first time, so that we wouldn't be totale in the dark (hahahahaha..........eh) about the franchises. I have not seen Chronicles of Riddick yet, but my best bud swears it unimportant for the series (I plan on seeing it, but I'm finding you either love it or hate is as a "riddick" movie) Anyway, I liked Pitch Black, it was fun, maybe a little dated with the filtered lenses, but otherwise stuck to its story, didn't have a lot of excessive baggage, and had a few nice twists to its story. I didn't really know what to expect with Riddick, other than the previews looked promising.
As I summed it up on Twitter.... Mad Max in space. With less hair. And not cars. But it's channelling Mad Max all the way.
