Been watching all the commercials for this one and it looks like it could be a good one. What is everyone's opinion?

I've been watching the trailers online over and over again. I usually don't get all freaky over movies but this one can't come out soon enough for me. There are very few truly enjoyable sci-fi films lately and Pitch Black was one of them. I just hope it doesn't fall into the curse of the sequels and end up a Matrix-like disaster.

Yes! Christ, if it does turn out like the second and third Matrix movies I'll be so dissappointed. I have to confess I'm a bit worried about what they'll do with Riddick's character. In Pitch Black his really questionable morals were great. I honestly had no idea what was going to happen and if he'd turn out good or bad or both. If they change his character too much for the new film and try to make him out to be a really nice, altruistic, misrepresented guy then it'll ruin the film in my opinion. If he has reformed slightly then I'll accept it because we saw some of that at the end of the last film, but he needs to keep the edginess of Pitch Black.

I haven't seen any comercials, but I thought Riddick got eaten at the end of Pitch Black. Is this a prequel?

he did not...he and that women and a girl escaped from the plante...this is a sequal....but there is a game...which i think is a prequal

No, the woman never made it off the planet. Riddick... well, possibly killed her, possibly just let her be killed. I could never quite decide if he was stabbing her, or if it was one of the alien creature things. 'Cause if he was stabbing her then, why? There was some weird motivation going on there, although it did seem to act as a catharsis for his coming over to the light. As he was leaving he said that Riddick had died on the planet, suggesting that maybe the woman's death was like a sacrifice. Hmmm. For the record I think there were three survivors: Riddick, the girl who's in the new film, and the Immam guy. And who thought they were going to be the survivors, hmmm? I mean, I kind of knew the girl was going to make it - though I wasn't certain - and I didn't think the Muslim boys were going to because there'd been hardly any character development for them, but beyond that...!

Riddick didn't stab the Fry. They clearly showed her impaled on the alien when it dragged her away from Riddick and then he dropped to the ground and said "Not for me". I always took that to mean that he didn't feel he deserved to have her die while saving him. And when he tells Jack to tell people that Riddick died on the planet I always took that to mean that a part of him died on the planet. Like the cold-blooded almost inhuman murderer part of him. But that's just my take on it. The movie was kind of ambiguous which I kind of like.

I like your interpretation of things. That is how I was thinking about the whole thing too.

It didn't show him actually stabbing her, but - and I watched this bit several times to try to make sure - it does show his hand (holding the knife) behind her back whilst he's holding on to her, and then the hand plunges down and she shudders, presumably having just been stabbed. There's then a couple of seconds of her dying before the alien whisks her away - would the alien have waited before stealing it's prey? And the comment "Not for me" could just as easily be "Not for me?" i.e. harking back to her saying "I said I'd die for them, not for you Riddick" as it could do for "Not for me" i.e. your explanation. Both interpretations fit, except that the plunging movement of his arm was the factor which decided me.

Both interpretations fit, except that the plunging movement of his arm was the factor which decided me.

My thinking is that if Riddick was going to kill anybody in that movie it would been Johns, I think that the knife plunge was just a dramatic misdirection and that he only lowered it. She tells him "I said I'd die for them, not for you Riddick" yet she ends up doing just that, dying for him. If she had not gone back for him that creature that killed her would have gotten him instead.

She tells him with her words that he is not worth saving but tells him with her actions that he is worth saving. Seeing her get carried off further burned this into him. "For them, not for me, NOT FOR ME!" was the same as if he had said "Why did you die for me!". She had not only redeemed herself but him as well.

:p

Well thats just my crazy interpertation of it. Maybe one of these days I will buy the DVD abd see if there is a comentary that explains it.

Champos
May 20th, 2004, 12:52 AM
But killing her helped to purge away all his previous sins, and get him started for a new life as an innocent. He killed her, I tell you, he killed her! And it wasn't "Not for me!", it was "Not for me?"

Shipperahoy
May 20th, 2004, 08:21 AM
Well, I've watched my DVD backwards, forewards, and sideways about a billion times and listenend to the audio commentary with Vin Diesel and Cole Hauser and I'm telling you he didn't kill her. I will never believe that he did but I'm not going to tell people what to think. In my mind the alien killed her and by her coming back for him it showed him that humans are redeemable.

I'm really looking forward to this movie. Pitch Black was great, and it's the same director, and SFX group (I hope), and the trailers are great. I just hope people don't stray from the movie because they hate Diesel...from what I've read, the plot is full of a deep mythology, and could even become the next SW.

Okay, I've got to ask this. Is Pitch Black really scary? I didn't watch it first time around 'cos I'm a wimp and don't like stuff that gives me nightmares. I like what I've seen thus far of Riddick and would like to see it, but I think I should watch Pitch Black first.

What do those of you that have seen PB think?

I don't like scary movies but I LOVED Pitch Black. It's one of my all time favorite sci-fi movies. It's an edge of your seat type movie but not really gross or anything.

If you've seen any of the "Alien" movies (and survived) you should be able to watch "Pitch Black."

It's an excellent flick -- the performances are first rate, the special effects top notch, and it's well written.

Anyone loooking forward to The Chronicles of Riddick? I saw Pitch Black recently and it was pretty good, and the trailer for Riddick looks different and awesome. Also they've released Pitch Black on DVD to co-incide with the release of Riddick and they've renamed it to The Chronicles of Riddick: Pitch Black. It's like Indiana Jones when they changed Raiders of the Lost Ark to Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark when the sequels were made.

Did you see the massive background scenes of Chronicles? It was 'massive'. Although i'm not a 'Pitch Black' fan, i'm looking forward to its sequel.

June 5th, 2004, 04:24 PM
Yeah, the trailer does make Pitch Black look pretty small scale. Not so much low budget. The Chronicles of Riddick looks like it has a huge budget. I think this is a sequel were you don't have to be a fan of the original. I think the character of Riddick is pretty much the only major character from the first movie. I think it's a prequel.

I'm not holding my breath for the Chronicles of Riddick. Nothing against Vin Diesel and I'm a big fan of Dame Judi Dench and Colm Feore, but the one of the reasons I liked Pitch Black was its relative "low budget" look and character-driven story. The Chronicles of Riddick looks like a whole lot of CG flash, but I could be wrong...

Chronicles of Riddick has nothing to do with Pitch Black and its not a prequel. The survivors from Pitch Black are in the movie and their older now, EX. Alex Davalos playing Jack from Pitch Black and now all grown up and now known as Kyra.

All this is from the Sci-Fi Lowdown. Any1 else watch it, it was pretty good.

Didn't really find it scary. Absolutly love the movie.
For those of you who don't like Vin D I'm with u, I can't stand him I hate him but surprisingly he does and awsome job of bring Riddick to life. I don't think any1 else could have done (can't believe I'm saying that cuz I can't stand the guy I hate all his other movies).

It is set 5 years after the events of Pitch Black. Pitch Black is one of my favorite movies ever and I'm really looking forward to Chronicles of Riddick. There's always the chance that it will stink but if that's the case I will do the same thing with it that I did with the last 2 Matrix movies and pretend that it doesn't exist.

They couldn't name it Pitch Black 2 because the entire reason for the original title had to do with the planet they were on. Instead, they added Chronicles of Riddick to the re-release of the DVD so at least there is some connection. Apparently, the producers didn't know for sure that Riddick/Diesel would be such a hit in the first movie, but they left his character alive just in case (according to IDMB).

D.C.
June 6th, 2004, 03:38 PM
It would have made sense changing Pitch Blacks name to The Chronicles of Riddick: Pitch Black if The Chronicles of Riddick was a prequel, and happened before Pitch Black, but now it just sounds sort of stupid. I just re-watched the trailer for this movie and it looks awesome. :)

I am really looking forward to the CoR. I really like Pitch Black because they were different. Its not very often that you see the bad guy get away and the main good guy die. I just have to laugh at how lucky the makers of pitch black were. There is no way when they were casting that they could have know that the nobody they cast as Riddick would turn into the star that Vin Deasel has. If he hadn't done so well in F&F and XXX, I highly doubt a sequal would have ever got approved.

I HATE that Jack/Kyra died at the end. I absolutely hated it. I've read that this would be a trilogy so I was expecting it to be open-ended, which I had braced myself for, but I really didn't expect her to die. But, you never know. Nobody's really dead in movie land. And I have no idea what they're going to do with the next movie what with Riddick in charge of the Necromongers now. It will be interesting to see.

It sounds as though they're still going to procede with finishing the trilogy despite the critics bashing and the less than stellar numbers. I'm glad, because I want to see how it turns out and hopefully they'll get better. Although, I really didn't think this one was that bad. I did have fun looking for all of the Stargate actors. Hubby and I spent the whole movie going "Hey, it's Apophis! Hey it's Her'ur! Hey it's that Russian guy from the Tomb. Hey it's Daniel's friend from Beneath the Surface, the girl who wouldn't give Carter any bread. Hey it's Connor from the First Commandment. Hey it's that blond guy from Revelations who's on Atlantis now. What's his name? One of the Athosians, starts with an H." Tons of fun. :D

Did anyone besides me actually like this movie?
Its like one of my favorite sci-fi movies of last year, and not just because it had a ton of stargate people in it either, although that helps ;) .

Wereas Jack sees Burns as Goa'uld I see Lord Marshall as System Lord with some fancy phase shift device instead of a personal shield. His solders were like Jaffa. The one little guy (who played Batmans dad in Batman begins) was like one of his priest or a lotar or something.

Also, Chronicals or Riddick: Escape from Butchers Bay is one of the best action\stealth video games I ever played. (dont get it if you have kids though, as you can turn down the gore but not the bad language, and there is LOTs of bad language, both said and written on the walls.... its triple max prison, what do you expect?)

My 2-cents:

Some say that Pitch Black, even though it was on a low budget, was the better of the two. I own both. I LOVE both. If I had to choose one over the other?

Pitch Black... I can't explain why without revealing an integral part of the film. But it was one of those rare gems of a movie. Low budget, tight schedule (6 weeks in the Australian outback), great cast & director, minimal special effects and a really GOOD story.

Go out and get the "Riddick Trilogy"(all on one disk)--"PB", "Chronicles of Riddick" and the animated feature which takes place between the two, "Dark Fury".

You won't be disappointed.

This is a great movie. It's one of my favorites. I have watched it dozens of times on dvd. Was interesting to see the differences between the theatrical version (on cable) and the director's cut of the movie (on dvd). Pitch Black isn't bad. But, I like Chronicles better. Really hope they make another installment of the series someday.

“David Twowy right now is writing the scripts. The only question is whether we take a page from the ‘Lord of the Rings’ guys and try to shoot the two chapters at the same time. There are two more in mind,” he said of Riddick, the Furyan warrior first introduced in the 2000 film “Pitch Black.” “‘The Chronicles of Riddick’ was presented as a three part trilogy that would answer ‘Pitch Black’ in the same way that ‘Lord of the Rings’ answered ‘The Hobbit.’”

I quite enjoyed the first two, so I look forward to more development on this. :cameron:


“Sooner or later we all end up in the Underverse,” he said of where we can expect the next chapter to take place, adding in a Riddick-like voice, “Sooner or later.”

riddick was already a sequal to pitch black, has he ever actually said that

although i think halle berry once said she'd never do another superhero movie, literally months before signing up to do catwoman.

I think he came up with some bull**** reason why Chronicles of Riddick wasn't a sequel. Although it could be argued it was a spin-off not an actual sequel even though it starred all the survivors.

This is very good news. Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick are two of my favorite SF films.

Anyone see the animated Riddick story? That was pretty good.

And whats this about Vin not doing sequals? Hes coming out with Fast and Furious part 3 or 4 or what ever...crap of a movie.

Although I'm looking forward to the Rockfish movie hes using his voice for. I loved the short when it was shown at Animation conventions and now its being made into a movie.

It is just going to be nice to see the Riddick character again. See what trouble he can find this time.

I really can't wait for more news on these two films. And hopefully we'll get a time-frame for when we may get to see them.
