He better be coming with an 'R' rating, or else I'll be skipping it.
 
2012-12-20 07:10:24 PM
It looks like Riddick is gonna be a chick in this one.
 
Nice titties, Vin.
 
2012-12-20 07:19:12 PM
I liked the 2nd movie...
 
2012-12-20 07:56:35 PM
Didn't he end up king of the underworld or something after the last one?

I liked The Chronicles of Riddick. I won't apologize for it.


Mugato: Didn't he end up king of the underworld or something after the last one?


Lord Marshal of the Necromongers, yup!


scottydoesntknow: He better be coming with an 'R' rating, or else I'll be skipping it.


I don't think an R-rating would be as detrimental to the film's box office tally as they suppose.

Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: I liked The Chronicles of Riddick. I won't apologize for it.


I liked it too. It was ambitious at least. This one sounds like the first one.

Or a blend of the two films, what with the dangerous planetary conditions AND the mercs.

I guess we'll never see the underverse. I wonder if they'll even pay any lip service to the way the last one ended. Riddick with an army at his command had so much potential.

Wow, never been in a thread where people other than me liked The Chronicles of Riddick.

I will say though, the branding of the movie names sucks. Just "Riddick" now? Like effing Stallone: now the fourth movie is just called "Rambo"? God damnit, I live for f*cking roman numerals!

They did video games and animated material.

If they're going to visit the Underverse stuff, it'll be something along those lines.


coeyagi: Wow, never been in a thread where people other than me liked The Chronicles of Riddick.


It took a drubbing for some odd reason, but I really enjoyed it.

I was hoping for something with a bit more oomph. With a title like Riddick, it sounds like final chapter material (unless it pulls in some crazy bank).

I've been following this off and on. According to Vin Diesel and Katie Sackhoff, this will get an R rating. Also, while I liked The Chronicles of Riddick in the theater, I like it a whole lot more when I saw the unrated director's cut on DVD. I'm looking forward to this new movie.

There is an honest enthusiasm that Vin has for the Riddick character and universe that I find infectious.
I even liked the last film, as strange as it was.
 
I'll check this one out.

GOOD.

And the unrated cut makes it that much better, aye.

I saw both, and I remember liking the second a bit better.

I won't see it in a theater, but when it comes to DVD I'll get it.

I'm confused as to how we went from Lord Marshall of the Necromongers over to Riddick is yet again running around in survivalist mode on a planet. Because frankly:

The infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he's encountered...

That was pretty much Pitch Black right there. I'm not getting my hopes up.

Maybe it'll be a prequel.

Put me down as someone who enjoyed parts of it while trying to exorcise others from my mind. The main isue I had was they would do something within reason(killing the dude on the railtrack with the lights), but then follow it up with something, well, ridiculous(Riddick precisely measuring the distance traveled on said rail). It was a movie that would have me then lose me in sequential scenes. Hopefully they tightened it up for the third because I really wanted to fully enjoy the second one.
 
2012-12-20 09:17:50 PM
Another one here who liked Chronicles or Riddick and I was going in fully expected to be disappointed by the pg13 rating. Pretty solid movie.
 
2012-12-20 09:23:01 PM
Pitch Black is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. I know it's popular here. I have meat-space friends who love it. To me this is a move not so bad it's good, but so bad it's an insult.

Sequels? That's like asking about the entrees at a restaurant serving poo for appetizers.

Not sure if troll, lonely, has had very small sample size in viewing movies, attention whore, a basement dweller, or just woefully ignorant of movie critiquing because of his miniscule knowledge of cinema.

Yup and Yup.

Also, been Vin's pet project for a while. I believe he bought the rights off the studio, and helped fund and get funding for it.

Don't! It was visually very well put together, had an interesting story, and at least wasn't some cookie cutter boring mess that we see over and over again from Hollywood. The director's cut is even better.

Heh, no worries, I won't! And quite right on all points.

If it's on TV (AMC, BBC, whatever), I will *plant* myself down and watch it.

It's a lot better than most people give it credit for.

Count me in with the enjoyed Chronicles of Riddick as well, didn't make much sense to me until I saw the directors cut though.

Saw chronicles of Riddik. Thought it was fine. Someone needs to explain away the underverse business.

Heard a rumor that it will fall chronologically in between the two existing movies.
 
2012-12-20 10:43:12 PM
Liked chronicles, loved butcher bay.

I really wish more people sat down and played the games, because Vinnie could easily tell the rest of the underverse story more easily and more thoroughly through games right now, and likely for a lot less money, than trying to get studios on board for another movie or two.
 
2012-12-20 11:42:12 PM
Both the movies and the games were cool...looking forward to this.

I've always been a fan of Vin Diesel.  I don't always love the movies he's in, but he's usually not the reason they're terrible.  Also, that is FARKING awesome.  Wonder if they were in costume.
 
2012-12-21 12:28:38 AM
I like.the riddick movies. The directors cut.of.chronicles is pretty good minus the dragon ball z moment. Remove that scene and its an awesome sci do flick with great potential.

I thoroughly enjoyed Pitch Black and Chronicles, Directors Cut even moreso. Vin's not a half bad actor. Hell, he almost made xXx good. You can tell he loves what he does, and his passion about Riddick is pretty awesome to see. Most other actors would be "Ill sign on if the studio throws me enough money and phone it in" in these films I think.
 
2012-12-21 01:50:19 AM
I don't know what to think.

The last movie was good, but damn silly at times. "Jack" was laughable for the most part, and the CGI... cats still make me cringe because they look so fake. Still, it was pretty fun throughout and clever here and there. I've been wanting to see where his role as "Lord Marshal" would take him, but the premise for this new film is not sounding good. I'm hoping there are major elements of the plot that are being left out.

Never trust anyone who would use the term "meat-space" seriously. Ever.

He doesn't seem like he wanted to lead the Necromongers.  The way the character is, they could easily say that he just ditched those people and moved on.  He's a lone wolf.

Or directed them in such a direction as they're no longer conquering human populated planets, and now are finding new planets, ala where the origin of the planet in Pitch Black failed because of the resident monster aliens.

The director's cut of Chronicles of Riddick should have been the theatrical cut. Good movie, Pitch Black was also great.

Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: I liked The Chronicles of Riddick. I won't apologize for it.


I didn't like the theatrical release...loved the Director's Cut.  The Director's Cut makes far more sense.  I love the Riddick character...

I'm looking forward to this...but I'm a bit nervous.  He was Lord Marshall yes...but how are they going to explain that he's no longer Lord Marshall.  If he were to just leave, and Vaako took over (or any other Necromonger leaders)...the Necromongers would still be a threat to the galaxy.  They need to conquer to continue to exist (much like the Borg) as they don't breed.

Trapped on a planet full of hostile aliens while being hunted by mercenaries? Isn't that almost the same plot as Pitch Black(which was awesome)?
 
2012-12-21 08:57:53 AM
i liked both movies but i acutally like Chronicles better. watched it last week as a matter of fact.
as mentioned up thread i was hoping they keep the necromoger story going and had more Thandie Newton in very very tight dresses!!!

They should really just make Escape from Butcher Bay into a movie. That game was so perfect, and the entire plot was: Escape from Butcher Bay.

/keep it simple, stupid

I didn't.

The first one was actually quite believable. Bad-ass human with some surgical modifications that gave him some advantage in darkness, but he's still quite mortal. Monsters aren't super-human either, they have their weaknesses. There is no hint of actual supernatural powers like ESP, or ghosts, or anything like that. Religion was presented, but in the form we know it: No actual miracles, but a belief in a higher power.

Second movie was full of supernatural/religious miracle crap.
