    I am having one of those nights where I absolutely cannot sleep...

    As a result...I just put on 'Pitch Black' on DVD (bought a second hand copy a while ago,but hadn't got around to watching it)

    WOW...that was a seriously cool movie! The best of it's kind since Alien...

    For a late night atmosphere type film...it's really cool.

    For the dvd heads out there... ;) ...the picture is brilliant and the surround sound absolutley kicks...really enjoyed it:)

    I believe its Van Diseal. A space ship crashes on a planet that never has darkness except on a rare occurence (there are two suns and when planets and moon line up, whole planet is dark...something like that)

    Anyways, their are some weird creatures, much like vampires, that come out and kill anything alive when its dark.

    Your usual...bunch of problems along the way prevents them from escaping and they must escape to survive.

    Its a pretty good movie though.

    Vin Diesel is in the movie

    they go to Mars to study crap

    Vin is a criminal and they brought him up there

    then at night when the moon covers the sun, these creatures come out

    trust me this is an awsome movie
    vin was the tough guy killing everyone in this
    it was very good

    this is a fine film
    i saw it in the theater and of cource have the DVD. the entire cast in entertaining at the very least, and its really the movie that got Vin the starring role in fast and furious. and yes i suppose it is kind of along the lines of alien, sure, but plenty different.


    the chick with dark hair in the film is on the scifi origional TV show "Farscape" a must watch if you like the genre. but not for the gay ass treki types. its much more bad a$$ than those. much like the movie.

    I thought it was a good film.
    The first half was much better,before the lights go out.I really liked the camera work and the weird tint gave it an authentic feel.

    After the eclipse it's like a totally different movie,not such a good one.

    I thought Pitch Black was a lot of fun. That scene where the aliens first come out after the eclipse was very well done- very eerie.

    Not every movie is about the strong development of characters. This was simply an exciting action flick. Definitely worth two hours.

    Think all three Riddick movies were a good waste of time. I was entertained enough to watch all three and felt like I watched something a little different, although maybe not by much. Like the character enough to see another.

    I always thought the concept or idea of Riddick/Pitch Black was better than the actual movies.

    I'm not sure if it's a budget issue, director issue, or Vin Diessel's acting. There just always seemed to be something off.

    I'm a fan of Pitch Black. It's got some great action and some interesting characters. It's not a very deep moving and not a movie to think too deeply about. Not a big fan of the sequels or really the Riddick universe.

    The original definitely was the high point.
