Last week I saw Riddick, the latest Vin Diesel blockbuster movie, and reviewed it for Festivale Online Magazine.
To summarise, I liked the opening (first 20 mins or so) a lot. The rest, not so much. Click through to read the full review!
Above is an image from the part of the movie I liked. It shows Riddick (who is stranded on an alien sun-scorched planet) and his ‘dog’ companion, which he’s reared from a pup. His relationship with the ‘dog’ is really sweet.
Anyone else seen Riddick? Thoughts?

I like Vin Diesel. I haven’t seen the latest Riddick film, but I plan to. I don’t expect much from those types of films, so I’m usually not disappointed. I’ll let you know what I think.
I confess I liked Vin Diesel too. I look forward to hearing what you think of the movie!
I don’t really care for the Riddick movies (although I haven’t seen this one). I thought your review was good, though, and cool that you wrote for a magazine! Do you do that often?
I rather liked Pitch Black when I first saw it, but wouldn’t have gone to see this had I not been asked to review it. It’s only the third review I’ve done for Festivale — I did Conan two years ago and The Conjuring in July this year. It’s fun. I get a free movie (and in this case free popcorn and drink) out of it. 🙂
Well done with your review! That’s so cool that you’ve got that gig. AND you get to see some movies, too. Sounds like a win-win to me even if you didn’t like the movie. 🙂
Yeah, that’s what I reckon. I’ve been shocking at getting out to see movies lately. They keep passing me by. It’s definitely good to get out now and then.
