Re: New Riddick thread

I loved both films. The first one for its simplicity and character-led storytelling. The second one for the huge risk it took. I know it was a commercial flop but the vision was original and amazing. It bears re-watching very well. The science part of sci fi was severely compromised in the second film but really no worse than ST and to be honest, the biggest problem I had with the second film (how the hell was there a breathable atmosphere on Crematoria) really could be asked about the first planet too, since there was no vegetation and in any case there was a very long period of complete darkness during the planet's cycle.
