I belive this was film review number 11, whatever. It may seem dated because I think, I have to check the original post date, it's about a year old. sorry for the delay. Enjoy, and if you're not drinking, start drinking.
I just checked, this is from November of last year.
Battle of the sequels!
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU HAVE BEEN DRINKING FOR FIVE DAYS STRAIGHT.
fucking caps lock dude, I got excited.
that fucking BMMC, I was tecting him today, and his girlfriend Sarge.
ok yeah whatever, let's get back to business here.
Oh Holy shit!
Well not really a battle, the best sequel I’ve ever seen was of course, Empire
It’s big, grand and literally, has it all.
this was probably, and we all knew another was coming dso, i was hanging by a thread waiting for Return of the Jedi, as younng as I was, and seeing that film, it changed me, filmmaking can be dark, Empire, and probably Watership Down taught a generation that, sometimes, there really isn't a happy ending
Anopther good sequel that gets press but nowhere near as much as it should
Another hidden gem, and believe it or not, ranks right up there with Empire and Superman II was the little seen sequel to Pitch Black
If you haven’t seen Pitch Black
it’s pretty good, nobody is going crazy over it, but overall, it’s a good film.
We all know Sci Fi very fucking well, this is true. This film, I swear, the set designs, the costume designs, these motherfuckers built this motherfucker from the ground up.
This film bears zero resemblence to any sci fi film I have ever seen.
It is completely original
And on top of that, very well done.
I don’t rate movies on that whole 4 or 5 star scale, I rate them on how much it costs to see them, and what- in my opinion, should be paid to see them.
When Chronicles came out, it was what, 8 bucks to see a movie, this shit is worth every penny. I woulda been happy paying ten to see this shit.
Worth every penny.
As you may have guessed, this film follows our hero from Pitch Black “Riddick”, played by mister “I live my life a quarter of a mile at a time” ( what the fuck does that even mean??) Vin Diesel.
It goes without saying that Vin Diesel is an absolute badass, I will say, almost too cartoonish, but still good, it’s Sci Fi so you gotta let shit slide.
I would probably consider this film a road movie, I love road movies.
the thing about these films, both Pitch Black and Chronicles, is that, we are following the adventures of Riddick. Let's be clear here. Riddick is the bad guy, we are essentially following, and rooting for a villain. There is no charming Han Solo or Ash from Army of Darkness, no, Riddick is actually bad.This is our "hero".
There are multiple plants, personalities, and storylines. TIME OUT, WHAT THE FUCK IS JUDI DENCH DOING IN A SCI FI FILM, WHAT THE HELL
One charcter however, seen here
bares a tad bit more than a passing resemblance to another science fiction icon
Everything matters and everything fits, it’s a perfect puzzle of a film.
I’ve seen this film, easily, 100 times, and I always notice something new each time.
The storyline is so intricate, I swear, the script musta weighed a hundred pounds.
I’ve rarely seen, in any movie, so many characters handled so well.
I mean, this is like, Shakespearean levels of Character juggling here.
And it’s pulled off perfectly.
Once I saw it was written by David Twohy, the man, he is probably the best science fiction screenwriter out there, and the only person who could write this film.
The Chronicles of Riddick crushes Star Wars Ep 1, 2 and 3 and The Return of the Jedi, and, get this, is even better than - Aliens…
Yes, I went there.
If you ever get the oppurtunity to see this film, do so. A terrific sequel. This is how you do it, this is precisely
how you do it.
drink up and enjoy.
BMMS is wrong.
