I remember seeing Pitch Black for the first time at the cinema. I came away from it thinking I have seen something special. "Who is this Van Deisel guy?" I thought Riddick was the coolest character I'd seen in years and I still think that. The movie takes the best elements of Alien and The Thing and creates a modest little sci-fi thriller about a group of marooned travellers on a seemingly desolate planet which has 3 suns. I'm sure most of you have seen it so I won't bother with any more of a rundown. Needless to say its a taut film, well written, well acted and really well directed. The movie was followed by The Chronicles Of Riddick (which I'll re-watch and post soon) and a 35 minute anime that bridges the two feature films. Very cool stuff and a 3rd Riddick movie is in production which will return to the gritty and modest aesthetic that fans prefer. Can't wait.
