You get all four films as well as a digital download. There is little doubt that all of the films will have their original extras and will include the director's cuts, as they have been previously released on single disc blu-rays. Production-wise it would be easy to just use the previous pressing masters you can make a sure bet it's all going to be there. Pitch Black and Dark Fury will be on a single disk with the other two movies having their own. Here is a quick rundown of the films.
Pitch Black - The movie that started it all. It is a monster movie where swarms of flying carnivores threaten to wipe everybody out. Riddick at this point had technically a supporting role, but the impression the character made was not to be dismissed. He was the reason that movie shines as a creature thriller. Lots of violence in this film, and that made fans craving for more.
Dark Fury - This was a straight to video animated feature produced by Peter Chung, the animator of the Aeon Flux cartoon series. It's really not much more than an ego stroking of the Riddick character, giving him plenty of opportunities to look cool, talk cool, and show amazing feats of prowess. This one feels more like a fan fiction than anything else, but it does give a segueway to the next film.Read more ›
Pitch Black Unrated/Theatrical 5.1DTD-MA and Dark Fury non-Anamorphic 5.1 Dolby Pro Logic
The Chronicles of Riddick Unrated/Theatrical 5.1 DTS-MA
Riddick Unrated ( Directors Cut ) / Theatrical 5.1 DTS-MA
Each disc contains both versions listed above along with various extras, behind the scenes, and commentaries. Although I am very pleased with this collection I have a few " what the @#$ " moments. These come from owning the Directors Cuts of Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick on earlier DVD releases. The ONLY Directors Cut you will get in this collection is Riddick D-C Unrated, the other 2 movies ARE extended cuts but NOT Directors Cuts. I was awaiting scenes that I knew were supposed to be there, and yet never were. I won't spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen these movies because they are all 3 truly classics for buffs of this genre. It is just misleading the way the package is presented.( EDIT) The UV Codes will get you a DC Unrated Riddick in 5.1 Dolby Digital, The Chronicles Unrated 5.1 Dolby Pro Logic, and Pitch Black Unrated 5.1 Dolby Digital...I used VuDu and had the same reaction all of you should...why is Chronicles Unrated and Dolby Pro Logic???? I still haven't figured this out yet, but if I do I will make another edit.
Now, I know these are are not the best movies, but if you like Vin Diesel, in the Fast & Furious movies, you should love him, in the Riddick movies. He is the ultimate bad-ass. Lots of action, excitement, and alien creatures.
The latest movie, Riddick, is not quite as good as the previous movies, but I think it has better characters. I was not a fan of the CGI alien dog, in the beginning of the movie, but it developed into an interesting character, later on.
Overall, I'm, extremely happy with this purchase. Besides the movies, on Blu-ray, you also get the UltraViolet versions, and the chose of iTunes, Windows, or Amazon Video versions. Not bad for the price.
The first movie (Pitch Black) involves him and the crew/passengers on a ship he is being transported back to prison on which crash lands on a seemingly deserted planet. There is a short animated feature called Dark Fury, which extends that story and leads up to the second movie Chronicles of Riddick. That movie has two central story lines that ultimately intertwine, Riddick out to help one of the survivors of the first film who is now in prison, and taking on a race called Necromancers who take over worlds and convert its inhabitants to their "religion" or kill them. That is the movie with the most overall star power with Judi Dench, Thandie Newton and Karl Urban playing key roles. The third film, Riddick finds him again on a seemingly deserted planet, and having to survive not only the planet itself, but a band of bounty hunters that end up coming after him.
I will not say more about any of the movies to avoid spoiling it for the few who would be reading this having never seen them. The first and third films are a blend of chase/survival and monster movies. The second film is really different from the other two, and personally I think told the most interesting story.Read more ›
